MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) -- Ciao Italian restaurant is one of the 12 restaurants along the Grand Strand selected to participate in a new cooking competition on The Cooking Channel.

‘Chef Swap at The Beach’, hosted by celebrity chef Amanda Freitag, has contestants from each restaurant swap kitchens and create a new dish. They are then evaluated by a panel of judges.

“We got recruited by the right people I guess,” said Claudia Hysa, owner of Ciao.

Hysa said when she got the call, the decision to say yes wasn’t automatic.

“We had to think about it because being busy and then having a production while we are running dinner service is a lot,” she said. “It all worked out because they accommodated our schedules.”

In business for 15 years, Ciao is an Italian restaurant, with a popular seafood menu.

“We get great local fish, shellfish,” she said.

Tidal Creek Brewhouse in Market Common is also participating in the show. For the owner, Dara Sawczak, it was a no-brainer when asked if they wanted to join.

“They really wanted to highlight a lot of the cuisine along the Grand Strand and being new to the scene we thought it would be something fun,” said Sawczak.

Opening the business during the height of the pandemic two years ago was a challenge, but they were able to push through. Sawczak has an outlook that any publicity that comes with a reality show appearance can mean a bump up in business.

“I think this is a pretty exciting opportunity for the Grand Strand, and I’m proud to be a part of this production and highlight our area so that more people can find us,” said Sawczak.

When speaking about the opportunity for Myrtle Beach to be highlighted on the new show, Chamber President and CEO Karen Riordan emphasized the uniqueness of the culinary scene in Myrtle Beach.

“Myrtle Beach is a culinary destination unlike any other,” Riordan said. “With over 2,000 restaurants offering tried-and-true favorites next to innovative flavors.”

In addition to Ciao and Tidal Creek Brewhouse, Chef Freitag and her team of judges visit 44 & King, Big Mike’s Soul Food, Bistro 217, Bonfire-a Smokin’ Taqueria, Drift, Hook & Barrel, Johnny D’s, Perrone’s, Sea Captain’s House, and Winna’s Kitchen.

The premiere episode of ‘Chef Swap’ is scheduled to air on Oct. 1 at 7 p.m. on the Cooking Channel.

Not a lot of good news tonight, but there’s a little.

We’re going to start with the playoff teams again.

Myrtle Beach Pelicans

The Myrtle Beach Pelicans were hounded by the Charleston RiverDogs (Rays), 10-6. The RiverDogs won the South Division playoff, 2 games to none. The Pelicans season is now over.

Didier Vargas started the game strong, striking out the first two batters he faced. But a seeing-eye single and a two-run home run that just cleared the fence in right field put the Birds in an early 2-0 hole.

But DH Haydn McGeary struck back with a two-run home run of his own in the bottom of the first.

Vargas continued strong through the first three innings, striking out seven batters and keeping the score tied. But things fell apart in the fourth. After Vargas retired the first two batters of the inning on grounders to third, he gave up a single, a walk and another RBI single, allowing Charleston to take a 3-2 lead. Then a crucial error by second baseman Josue Huma blew the gates open to a five-run inning by the RiverDogs, with all five runs coming after two were out.

The final line on Vargas, who took the loss, was seven runs on six hits over 3.2 innings. Only three of the seven runs were earned. Vargas struck out seven and walked just one.

Meanwhile, the Pelicans bats could not do anything against Charleston pitchers Alex Ayala Jr. and Daiveyon Whittle after the McGeary home run in the first inning. When Pelicans reliever Brody McCullough surrendered three more runs in the top of the eighth, the score was 10-2 and it looked hopeless.

It was, but the Pelicans put up a fight in the. ninth inning. Moises Ballesteros came to bat as a pinch-hitter with a man and no outs and crushed one over the right field wall to make it 10-4. The next batter up, Josue Huma, went back-to-back with a home run of his own to make it 10-5.

The Pelicans then put two men on after one out and it began to look like a miracle comeback was possible. But other than an RBI single by McGeary, the Pelicans rally fell short there and their season ended with a 10-6 defeat.

McGeary went 2 for 3 with the home run and walk. He had the three runs batted in.

Huma was 3 for 5.

Here are the final Pelicans highlights of the season.

The South Bend Cubs were hulled by the Cedar Rapids Kernels (Twins), 5-3. The best-of-three series is now tied at one game apiece. Game three is on Friday night in Cedar Rapids.

South Bend took an early lead in this one when right fielder Owen Caissie doubled and third baseman Luis Verdugo singled him home in the top of the second. But South Bend starter Porter Hodge gave up a run in the bottom of the second and a solo home. run in the third.

The Cubs used the same formula in the fourth inning to tie it up 2-2 as they did to score their first run. Verdugo doubled and then catcher Pablo Aliendo singled him home.

Second baseman Fabian Pertuz gave South Bend a 3-2 lead in the top of the fifth with a solo home run.

Hodge left after pitching four innings and allowing two runs on three hits. He walked three and struck out four.

Unfortunately, neither pitcher who threw in the fourth inning for South Bend, Adam Laskey and Joe Nahas, could find the plate. The Kernels’ Brooks Lee led off the inning with a double off of Laskey and then Laskey walked the next batter to put runners on first and second and no outs.

But Laskey looked like he’d get out of the inning when he retired the next two batters on fly outs (thanks in part to a terrific catch by Pete Crow-Armstrong in center field). But then Laskey walked the bases loaded and he exited for Nahas.

Nahas walked the first batter he faced on four pitches to tie the game 3-3. Next Nahas hit a batter (on what would have been ball four anyway) to make it 4-3. Finally Nahas balked in the third run to make if 5-3.

Neither team came close to scoring the rest of the game.

Laskey was charged with three runs on one hit and two walks over two-thirds of an inning. He was also handed the loss.

South Bend out hit Cedar Rapids 7 to 4, but they also issued seven walks and hit two batters while South Bend hitters only walked three times.

Verdugo was 2 for 4. Pertuz was 1 for 5 with the home run.

Iowa Cubs

The Iowa Cubs clipped the wings of the Memphis Redbirds (Cardinals), 8-5.

Wyatt Short started and picked up the win after allowing three runs on four hits over five innings. He walked two and struck out four.

Ben Leeper pitched a perfect ninth inning and got the save. He struck out one.

Iowa jumped out to a 7-0 and 8-1 lead by the fourth inning and then hung on to complete their victory. They scored five runs in the third inning, highlighted by a two-run double by center fielder Darius Hill. Hill was 2 for 4 with two doubles and the two RBI.

Catcher John Hicks made it 8-1 with a solo home run in the bottom of the fourth inning. It was Hicks’ 18th home run this season. He was 1 for 4.

Right fielder Alexander Canario played his first game in two weeks and went 1 for 3 with an RBI single. He also walked once and he scored two runs.

Left fielder Brennen Davis was 1 for 3 with a double and he was hit by a pitch. He scored two times.

Tennessee Smokies

Dalton Stambaugh started and held the Lookouts to one run on six hits over four innings. Stambaugh struck out six and walked one.

Jarod Wright relieved Stambaugh and he didn’t have much trouble in the fifth inning beyond hitting a batter. But then he came out to pitch the sixth and he gave up three runs and took the loss. Wright’s final line was three runs on two hits and three walks over 1.2 innings. He did not strike anyone out and he did hit that one batter.

Left fielder Cole Roederer hit a solo home run in the fourth inning, his fifth home run over the past seven games. Roederer was 2 for 4 and scored twice. Roederer now has nine home runs this year and eight with Tennessee.

Shortstop Luis Vazquez went 3 for 4 with one run batted in. He also stole a base.

Right fielder Yonathan Perlaza went 0 for 1 with three walks and a steal.

A running start on safety: Tips for running alone in Myrtle Beach

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) — The Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon is right around the corner.

At this point in the training process, runners are lacing up their sneakers for runs anywhere between nine and 12 miles. For runners who work during the day, they have no choice but to get those runs in before the sun rises.

Kelly Burton, manager at Black Dog Running Company, said runners have to plan their runs around their lives, not their lives around their runs.

“That’s what we do,” Burton said. “Especially training long distance. When you have hours to run, we plan it around our families.”

The climate in Myrtle Beach does not help much, either. The heat and humidity make it dangerous for runners to set off on their runs in the afternoon.

People who do not run, tend to tell runners not to run in the dark, but for distance runners, that really is not an option.

“No. Running on the treadmill is not the same,” Burton said.

If runners are setting out before the sun rises, there are ways to make it safer, and Myrtle Beach is runner friendly.

“Market Common is excellent, and there’s tons of road here,” Burton said. “You don’t even have to cross [Highway] 17, and you can easily get 10 or 12 miles in. You might get lost if you don’t know where you’re going, but again, you’re lost in a safe place, filled with neighbors.”

Burton said connecting with neighbors is another way to set up for success on a run.

“I’m the person who always is making eye contact and saying hi or stopping to pet your dog,” Burton said. “If we know our neighbors, we’re never totally alone.”

Running in a group is always the best idea, but some runners prefer to run alone.

“That’s our mental health. It’s our downtime,” Burton said. “It’s our, you know, let me collect my thoughts and not have to talk to anybody.”

If you are running alone, making sure someone knows where you are and what route you are taking is important.

“Let a few key people know your route,” Burton said. “Every time I run, my husband and two other people know exactly where I am and they can track me live.”

Black Dog has a motto that she hopes all runners will follow.

“Never run alone,” Burton said. “Whether that’s physically or mentally, emotionally, make sure that you feel safe when you’re running.”
