LYNCHBURG, VA (WMBF) – The Myrtle Beach Pelicans beat the Lynchburg Hillcats 5-3 in game four of the Mills Cup Championship Series on Wednesday night to win their second straight Carolina League title. The Pelicans won the series over the Hillcats 3-1.

Myrtle Beach scored three runs in the seventh inning to come back from a 3-2 deficit to take the lead for good. Donnie Dewees went 3-5 with a run scored, while Eloy Jimenez, Bryant Flete and Jeffrey Baez all drove in runs.

James Pugliese picked up the win in relief for the birds. He along with Tommy Thorpe and Ryan McNeil threw six shutout innings out of the bullpen to secure the win.

The championship is the third outright title in team history for the Pelicans. They previously won championships in 2000 and 2015. The Pelicans and Wilmington Blue Rocks shared the title in 1999.

Myrtle Beach is also the first team to repeat as champions in the Carolina League since Winston-Salem did it in 1985 and 1986.
