No rainy day winner at Pelicans game Thursday

Pelicans, Nationals play to draw, for now

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – The Myrtle Beach Pelicans narrowly avoided paying out $10,000 to one lucky fan on "Guaranteed Great Weather Night" Thursday. field did get some rain during the game, so fans who bought tickets to Thursday's game will receive a free voucher for a future game.

But much less than the required quarter-inch of rain fell between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. Thursday night, so no one walked away with $10,000. Just after the deadline, however, the skies opened up and forced a suspension.

The Pelicans were tied the Potomac Nationals with a score of 5-5 in the bottom of the ninth inning - the game will be continued at a date to be determined.

WMBF News' own Marla Branson threw the first pitch at Thursday's game.
