Offensively, Micah Johnson led the charge by going 2-4 with a triple and Tyler Saladino also went 2-4 with two runs batted in.
Starter Brian Clark had a strong start, going six innings and allowed two runs but the Winston-Salem lineup was held to only two hits. Carolina starter Andrew Waszak had a no-hitter going into the 7th when Jake Peter singled and eventually scored on a Trey Michalczewski sacrifice fly. Peter ended the day with both of the Dash hits to extend his hitting streak t0 ten games. Reliever Jake Cose struck out five batters over two innings while only allowing one unearned run on a hit and a walk.
The Intimidators experienced offensive struggles similar to the Dash, as they were only able to collect four hits in defeat. Starter Thad Lowry went seven innings, allowing three runs (two earned). Shortstop Eddy Alvarez singled in the 6th and stole 2nd and 3rd base and was driven in by Louie Lechich for the lone Kannapolis run.
