Slow Curves and Big Doubles: Dash beat the Varnell out of the Nationals

Slow Curves and Big Doubles: Dash beat the Varnell out of the Nationals
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Taylor Varnell improved on his already impressive Dash debut last time out with six innings of one-run ball, and a four-run Dash fifth led the team to a 4-1 victory over the Potomac Nationals. The only string of hits the Nationals were able to put together against Varnell came in the very... Read more »

Dash Don't Do As Roman Does: Mitch 4-for-4, but Nationals take it late

Dash Don't Do As Roman Does: Mitch 4-for-4, but Nationals take it late
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Mitch Roman had four hits and big-leaguer Manny Bañuelos struck out seven in less than five innings, but the Dash dropped this one to the Potomac Nationals after some late back-and-forth. Bañuelos made his first rehab appearance with the Dash after two such starts for the AZL Sox. He was shelled in... Read more »

The Kannapolis Pipeline: Varnell the latest fascinating pitcher called up, but loses in Winston-Salem debut

The Kannapolis Pipeline: Varnell the latest fascinating pitcher called up, but loses in Winston-Salem debut
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Taylor Varnell’s High-A debut against the Fayetteville Woodpeckers was baserunner-heavy but otherwise smooth until the very last pitch he threw, his 100th, which turned into a triple-plus-error and scored three runs for the loss. It’s strange to say for a four-run, five-walk outing over four and two-thirds innings, but this was actually... Read more »

Slog Days of Summer: Stiever gets through three, eventually, as Dash lose 5-4

Slog Days of Summer: Stiever gets through three, eventually, as Dash lose 5-4
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — It was Stiever Day in Winston-Salem, but Stiever Day wrapped up after just three innings, all scoreless but all equally laborious. It ended up turning into Bullpen Day, which did not go super well! Stiever’s last start saw him allow three runs through five innings, not bad by any means but not the... Read more »

Jagged Little Pilk: Konnor Pilkington flirts with no-no, pitches the Dash to victory

Jagged Little Pilk: Konnor Pilkington flirts with no-no, pitches the Dash to victory
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Konnor Pilkington turned in a sorely-needed quality start, only running into trouble in the fifth inning, and the bats were lively early as the Dash defeated the Carolina Mudcats 6-4 on Saturday evening. Pilkington has flashed dominance over his 14 starts so far with the Dash; a six-inning, 12-strikeout shutout here, seven... Read more »

Dash Turn Three, Drop One: Triple play not enough to overcome Mudcats

Dash Turn Three, Drop One: Triple play not enough to overcome Mudcats
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Dash pitching stranded 11 runners on base, but the offense was never able to put anything much together and they dropped the first game of the series to the Carolina Mudcats, 2-1. Kade McClure, 2017’s sixth-round draft pick, has been nothing but solid for Winston this season (and for Kannapolis, and for... Read more »

Steeling the Show: It's Walker's party, and he'll hit two doubles if he wants to

Steeling the Show: It's Walker's party, and he'll hit two doubles if he wants to
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Both sides pitched well enough to keep overall offensive totals low until late, but both also went deep into counts with batters (the Dash had at least two nine-pitch at-bats and one 10-pitch at-bat), made many pickoff attempts, and suffered from defensive miscues to drag the first five innings out for over...

Dedelow Does It All: Craig's two-dong day helps the Dash win 7-6 in extras

Dedelow Does It All: Craig's two-dong day helps the Dash win 7-6 in extras
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Kade McClure had a rare mediocre start, but the Dash battled all the way back, as they took game two of the series from the Down East Wood Ducks 7-6 in 11 innings. McClure wasn’t bad on the mound, just made a few untimely mistakes. He clearly wasn’t overpowering the Wood Ducks,... Read more »
