The Dash aren't rained out (for once); Play two, win two

The Dash aren't rained out (for once); Play two, win two
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — The Dash experienced a hopefully unprecedented six straight rain-related cancellations or postponements over the weekend (doubleheaders kept being scheduled, only to be rained out). So it was good to see the team back on a baseball diamond and not sinking into the bog, never to be seen again. It was a brutal... Read more »

Like a Stone With No Moss, the Dash Keep Rolling

Like a Stone With No Moss, the Dash Keep Rolling
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Cristian Castillo had a good start brewing, generating off-balance swings and striking out four, but grimaced and called for the trainer after throwing a pitch in the third inning. After a quick conference at the mound, he walked off, leaving behind a line of 2.1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, and 4... Read more »

Dash Split Doubleheader Due to Dedelow's Dong
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Jordan Stephens made his return both to the pitcher’s mound and to Winston-Salem Saturday night. Stephens, who was pegged before the season started as a potential mid-late 2019 rotation option for the big league club, struggled in his second go-round with the Charlotte Knights. Then, as if things weren’t going well enough,... Read more »

The Dash Have Found Their Bats: Frost stays hot, Remillard does his thing, George clears the bases

The Dash Have Found Their Bats: Frost stays hot, Remillard does his thing, George clears the bases
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — The Dash seem to have found their groove at the plate, frying the Mudcats 10-5 and scoring at least six runs in six straight. Good pitching stayed good and the usual players mashed the usual hits. Starting pitcher Cristian Castillo’s first inning might have been his roughest. Speedster Wes Rogers, who stole... Read more »

Players Gonna Play: He, he walks it off, he walks it off

Players Gonna Play: He, he walks it off, he walks it off
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Soft-throwing southpaw John Parke tossed a quality start, and it was enough to keep the Dash in the game until the seventh inning, when they showed the necessary signs of life. Those were enough to keep them in it until the 10th, when the world’s likeliest walk-off hero did his thing; the Dash took three... Read more »

Accepting Ideas on How to Clone Zach Remillard

Accepting Ideas on How to Clone Zach Remillard
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — The Dash led most of the game behind strong pitching, until the pitching was no longer strong. Zach Remillard continued this thing he’s doing where if someone throws him a baseball, he hits it, and his first-inning single knocked in the first Dash run of the game. The second came in the third, a truly... Read more »

Dash Do Not Get Their Ducks In A Row, Drop Doubleheader
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — The Dash played two against the Down East Wood Ducks on Sunday, and like many things in life, there was both good and bad. They dropped game one 2-1 in extras (“extras” in the world of minor league doubleheaders is anything after seven innings) and game two 9-0, gathering exactly one hit in doing... Read more »

Ducks Down Dash; Don't Doubt Dedelow

Ducks Down Dash; Don't Doubt Dedelow
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — The Winston-Salem Dash found themselves in a hole early on last night that they were unable to climb out of, and if that’s not relatable, I don’t know what is. The Dash this season look much different from the Dash last season; in fact, the Dash from last season look a lot like... Read more »
