WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Steele Walker provided the offense for the Dash and Kade McClure was very good through five but not through six as the team fell 4-3 to the Myrtle Beach Pelicans to even out the series.  McClure has done nothing but perform at each level of the minors he’s stopped at, AZL, Great Falls,...

When You’re Wrong, You’re Wrong — Minor League News and Notes, 6/17 to 6/24
What’s life but an opportunity to dwell on one’s failures? And this author has one big failure to dwell on. I never bought in on Luis Robert. His numbers as a teenager were gaudy in Cuba, and it seemed too good to be true when he came to the White Sox as the top-billed product... Read more »

The Dash Claw Back, but Not Enough: Winston drops their second straight in the 10th inning

The Dash Claw Back, but Not Enough: Winston drops their second straight in the 10th inning
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Baseball is a very hard game to play and that was apparent throughout Saturday’s Dash game. At the plate, they were no-hit until the fourth inning before turning things on, and on the mound, it was whatever the opposite of a no-hitter is. Zach Lewis was a solid starter the past 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).

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.

Fisher Steeles Walker's Namesake: Four walks from Jameson powers the Dash's win
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — The Dash’s return to BB&T Ballpark on Monday night against the Fayetteville Woodpeckers, an Astros farm team, went much better than the entire previous homestand combined.

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 »
