Pelicans-Dash opener washed out

Myrtle Beach, SC - From Myrtle Beach Pelicans:

WINSTON-SALEM, NC – Monday's series opener of the Pelicans' four-game set with the Winston-Salem Dash has been postponed due to rain at BB&T Ballpark.

The two clubs will make up Monday's game as the second contest of a day-night doubleheader on Wednesday.  Wednesday's originally scheduled noon game will go forward at its slated time.  Game two of the split doubleheader will start at 7 p.m.

Monday's originally scheduled pitching matchup will be pushed back to Tuesday with Pelicans right-hander J.J. Hoover (1-2, 5.24), coming off his best start of the season, against Winston-Salem southpaw Charlie Leesman (4-1, 5.91) for the de facto series opener at 7 p.m.

The Pelicans return to the Grand Strand on May 25 for the first of a six-game homestand with the Lynchburg Hillcats and Wilmington Blue Rocks.

The three-game set against Lynchburg opens up with Dollar Hot Dog Night on May 25.  Fans can enjoy $1 dogs all night long Tuesday along with the next installment of the Pelicans Team Tuesday Poster Series.
