ABOUT LAST NIGHT...: The Pelicans fell short in their bid for their seventh straight win, dropping Wednesday night’s game
6-3 to Wilmington. It was tied 3-3 in the top of the seventh when two infield singles set up Nick Van Stratten’s RBI single that gave
the Blue Rocks the deciding run. Van Stratten had a game-high three hits on the night while four Pelicans notched two hits each.
Zach Zaneski extended his hitting streak to 17 with a pair and Jared Hoying had two singles as well. Leury Garcia singled and
doubled, as did Jared Bolden, who picked up his eighth-straight multiple-hit game. Down 6-3 with two down in the ninth, the Birds
put two on against Ryan Dennick to bring the tying run to the plate, but Jared Prince grounded to third to end the game.
VS. THE BLUE ROCKS: The longest-distance matchup in the Carolina League has been evenly matched in 2011, with the
Birds going 8-7 so far in the season series. The home teams have dominated, with the Pelicans going 7-2 in Myrtle Beach and the
Rocks going 5-1 in Wilmington. The Blue Rocks swept Myrtle Beach at home May 20-22, but the Birds returned the favor by taking
all three games a week later at BB&T Coastal Field. Injured third baseman Mike Olt killed Blue Rocks’ pitching to the tune of a .500
average (13-for-26) in nine games. Jared Bolden has also fared well against Wilmington, batting .383 (18-for-47) in 13 games with
five doubles and two home runs.

MATCHING THE NUMBER ON HIS BACK: With his RBI single in the first inning last night, Pelicans catcher Zach Zanes- 7/13

TWO STREAKS SNAPPED: The 6-3 loss last night snapped the Pelicans’ six-game winning streak. It was their second six- 7/19

longest since 2008, when they Birds ran up 11 straight wins from July 30th to August 8th. Another streak came to an end last night 7/21

when Kennil Gomez allowed two runs in relief in the eight inning. Gerard Hall’s two-run single broke a streak by the Pelicans’ bullpen of 25 and one-third consecutive scoreless innings. Nine Myrtle Beach hurlers contributed to the streak over the past five games. 7/23
