MYRTLE BEACH — The Carolina Mudcats were held to a mere second-inning run off the bat of Trever Morrison on Monday night en route to a 4-1 loss to the Myrtle Beach Pelicans.

Carolina (45-36, 6-6 second half) held Myrtle Beach (27-52, 6-6 second half) to just two hits, but a two-run throwing error hurt the Mudcats, who had six hits, in the second.                

Aaron Ashby took the loss, striking out two. After a pair of walks in the first, Myrtle Beach plated the opening run on a sacrifice fly. Morrison steered an RBI double in the second, but Carolina fared no better against Myrtle Beach starter Paul Richan, who tied a career high with nine stikeouts.

Garrett Kelly pitched the ninth, striking out two Mudcats for his third save.

The series continues Tuesday.
