Snorting Bull Baseball Tour Day 3: Carolina Mudcats vs Myrtle Beach Pelicans

Day 3 of my summer baseball tour took my to Zebulon, North Carolina last night for a game between the Carolina Mudcats (Braves) and the Myrtle Beach Pelicans (Cubs).  The two Carolina League squads both had a few notable prospects on the field last night, but the Mudcats were put away quickly by the Pelicans.  The game ended up being a rain shortened 12-0 win for the Pelicans in 8 innings.  Here's a few sights (no sounds, we were in the quiet section of the stadium) around Five County Stadium.

Quick video too.  This is Braves top pitching prospect Lucas Sims facing Cubs prospect Mark Zagunis.  Zagunis doubled in this at-bat and helped push the Pelicans lead to 6-0.  Sims has stuff, but seemed a little phased by the umpires strike zone, and the catcher for the Mudcats was playing some shaky d.  The first two runs of the game scored on pass balls.
