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 »

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.
