Kinston slugged a pair of game-tying home runs, but Southern Division-leading Myrtle Beach escaped 9-6 on Wednesday evening.

The Pelicans swept the three-game set and boosted their advantage to 6 1/2 games over the K-Tribe and Winston-Salem in second-half play.

Carlos Santana homered for Kinston in the fifth, while teammate Carlos Rivero ripped a solo bomb in the sixth. Myrtle Beach answered with a two-run sixth and never trailed from that point.

The K-Tribe starts a seven-game homestand today against Salem.
