A walkoff win for the Pelicans.

Let's Go Crazy.

Catcher Taylor Davis went 2 for 2 with a sac fly.

Myrtle Beach Pelicans

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans deep-fried the Carolina Mudcats (Braves), 6-5 on a walkoff three-run home run by Yasiel Balaguert.

Starter Trevor Clifton gave up a double to leadoff the game and that runner scored two batters later on a wild pitch. After that, Clifton was really good with a final line of two runs, one earned, on three hits over 5.1 innings. Clifton walked two and struck out two.

Jose Rosario pitched the final two innings without allowing a run to get the win. Rosario gave up two hits and walked one while striking out one.
