The Blue Rocks make their first appearance in the Mills Cup Carolina League Championship series since 2004 Sunday afternoon.

The Rocks’ and Myrtle Beach Pelicans play Game 1 of the best of five series at Frawley Stadium.  First pitch is at 5:05 pm.

Wilmington is looking for its fifth Carolina League title, but first since 1999.

Myrtle Beach is in the Mills Cup final for a second straight year – but hasn’t won the league crown since 2000.  The Pelicans lost to Potomac 3 game to one in last year’s championship series.

Wilmington and Myrtle Beach met 18 times during the regular season with the Pelicans holding a 10-8 advantage
