Castellanos walks Salem off to 6-5 win over Myrtle Beach
The Pelicans had a 5-3 lead in the bottom of the eighth when Keith Curcio led off with a triple and scored on a single from Edgar Corcino to cut the lead. Jagger Rusconi reached on a force out, Charlie Madden singled, and Nick Sciortino walked to load the bases. A balk brought home Rusconi and evened the tilt 5-5.
Dominic LoBrutto locked down Myrtle Beach with a clean top of the ninth to keep it even.
Ryan Fitzgerald drew a walk to start the bottom of the ninth. Castellanos initially flied out to centerfield before the play was called back on a balk. With Fitzgerald now at second base, Castellanos delivered a single up the gap to walk Salem off 6-5.
