Tyler Danish surrendered just four hits and two walks in his six scoreless innings of work against Frederick on Tuesday. In six starts in July, the 19-year-old went 3-1 with a 1.10 ERA in 32.2 innings.

• The Dash bullpen was solid in Tuesday’s series opener. Brad Goldberg tossed a scoreless inning, Sean Hagan threw two frames without allowing a run and Raul Fernandez kept Frederick off the board in the ninth inning to preserve Winston-Salem’s fifth shutout victory of the season.

• Infielder Grant Buckner went 2-for-4 with two doubles, an RBI and a run scored. The West Virginia native extended his hitting streak to five games in the process. After Tuesday’s game, the 26-year-old was promoted to Double-A Birmingham.

• Third baseman Nick Basto had a double and RBI in Tuesday’s win. The 20-year-old has hits in three straight games and 11 of his last 12 contests.

• Reliever Kyle Hansen was promoted to Double-A Birmingham earlier today. The right-hander led the Dash in wins (8) and was tied for the team lead in appearances (31). The former St. John’s star had not allowed a run since June 22, spanning nine appearances and 15.2 innings. To take his spot, reliever Dave Putman has been activated from the disabled list.

• This series is the last between the Dash and Keys during the 2014 regular season. Winston-Salem is currently 9-9 against Frederick this year and that includes a 3-5 mark at BB&T Ballpark.

• 2014 first-round pick Carlos Rodon has been assigned to Winston-Salem by the White Sox and is on the active roster. The former NC State star made two appearances with the AZL White Sox to begin his professional career. Read more about Rodon here.

• Right-hander J.B. Wendelken will toe the rubber in Wednesday’s matinee affair. During his most recent outing against Potomac last Thursday, the 21-year-old allowed four runs (two earned) in four innings, finishing with a no-decision in the 9-6 setback against the P-Nats. Overall this season, the Georgia native is 5-8 with a 5.10 ERA.

Omar Narvaez – C
Grant Buckner – 3B
Tyler Danish – RHP

DASH DOTS:

• Infielder Grant Buckner went 3-for-3 with two singles, a homer and four RBIs on Sunday. The three-run blast in the eighth inning by the West Virginia native was his first since June 12 at Potomac.

• Right-hander James Dykstra was in control throughout Sunday’s contest, allowing one run on five hits while striking out eight over a career-high eight innings. The California native retired the final 12 Blue Rocks he faced.

• First baseman Keon Barnum went 2-for-4 with a single, double and two runs scored. The 21-year-old has produced back-to-back two-hit games and now has 28 multi-hit efforts this season.

• Third baseman Nick Basto collected a single and RBI in Sunday’s win. The 20-year-old has registered hits in 10 of his last 11 games.

• The Dash won a rubber game for only the second time this season on Sunday. Winston-Salem had been 1-7 in their previous attempts to claim the deciding tilt of a three-game series and was winless in five tries away from BB&T Ballpark.

• This series will mark the last between the Dash and Keys during the 2014 regular season. Winston-Salem is currently 8-9 against Frederick this year and that includes a 2-5 mark at BB&T Ballpark.

• Frederick will send right-hander Dylan Bundy to the hill in tonight’s series opener. The 21-year-old was a Carolina League All-Star in 2012 and became the first player from that group to reach the Majors, making his debut with the Baltimore Orioles on September 23, 2012.

• Right-hander Tyler Danish will look to continue his hot streak on the mound. In five July starts, the 19-year-old is 2-1 with a 1.30 ERA over 27.2 innings. During his most recent outing last Wednesday against Potomac, Danish allowed one run in six innings, earning the win in the 9-4 triumph over the P-Nats.

• In his 18 combined outings between Low-A Kannapolis and Winston-Salem, Danish boasts a 2.27 ERA, good for 14th among qualifiers in full-season Minor League Baseball. Danish is the youngest pitcher on that exclusive list. While with the Dash, the Florida native is 3-2 with a 3.40 ERA.

Game #107 Preview – Dash at Wilmington

Game #107 – Road Game #54
Winston-Salem Dash (18-19, 48-58) at Wilmington Blue Rocks (18-16, 51-51)
Sunday, July 27 – 5:05 p.m.
Frawley Stadium (Wilmington, Del.)

GAME BACKGROUND:

Jason Coats’ solo homer in the 11th inning lifted the Dash to an exciting 2-1 victory over Wilmington at Frawley Stadium on Saturday night. Winston-Salem can capture the three-game series with a win today.

Jason Coats' first homer in July was the difference in Saturday's thriller (Jody Stewart/W-S Dash).

Omar Narvaez – C
Justin Jirschele – 2B
James Dykstra – RHP

DASH DOTS:

  • Jason Coats’ go-ahead home run on Saturday was his first round-tripper since June 30 against Carolina, a span of 24 games. Despite that power drought, the Texas native is tied for fourth in the Carolina League in homers with 14.
  • This bomb marked only the 13th home run by a visiting hitter at Frawley Stadium this year, and it was the first by a Winston-Salem slugger in Delaware since the regular season finale last year (September 2) when Jeremy Farrell hit a three-run dinger.
  • Right-hander Terance Marin was strong on Saturday, allowing just one run and two hits in seven innings while striking out six. The California native carried a no-hit bid into the sixth inning.
  • For the third time in a week, a Dash hurler posted a legitimate no-hit bid. Tony Bucciferro went 8.1 hitless innings on Sunday in Frederick before a Glynn Davis single denied him of Winston-Salem’s first solo, nine-inning no-hitter since 1988. Five days later, Bucciferro retired the first 12 he faced before a leadoff single in the fifth by Mark Threlkeld.
  • Before these three lengthy bids, the Dash had only taken two no-hit bids into the fifth frame: Braulio Ortiz (4.1 IP on April 12 at Wilmington) and Frank Montas (6.1 IP on May 22 at Salem).
  • Reliever Kyle Hansen made a huge difference out of the bullpen once again, tossing three scoreless innings while allowing one hit. The 23-year-old has not allowed a run since June 22, spanning nine appearances and 15 and two-third innings.
  • Thanks to this strong effort, Hansen locked down his eighth victory of the season. Not only is Hansen tied for third in the CL in wins, but he is the only true reliever with more than six on the circuit. These eight wins account for half of the victorious decisions from Winston-Salem’s bullpen in 2014.
  • Outfielder Jacob May was caught trying to steal second base in the sixth inning. That ends a stretch of seven consecutive stolen bases that dates back to July 9 against Myrtle Beach. The Ohio native still paces the Carolina League in swipes with 37.
  • By scoring two runs, the Dash actually doubled their offensive output at Frawley Stadium this season. Winston-Salem had only amassed two runs during the first five games in Delaware, going 1-4 in the process.
  • Right-hander James Dykstra will try to pitch the Dash to a series win. During his most recent start against Potomac last Tuesday, the California native allowed four runs and rang up four strikeouts in six innings. He finished with a no-decision in the 6-5 win over the P-Nats. Since his promotion from Low-A Kannapolis on July 15, Dykstra is 1-0 with a 4.26 ERA in two starts with Winston-Salem.

  • Third baseman Nick Basto saw his season-best eight-game hitting streak come to an end on Friday. During that stretch, the 20-year-old batted .375 (12-for-32) with two homers, five RBIs and six runs scored.
  • Infielder Grant Buckner tallied the first Dash hit of the ballgame, a single up the middle in the third inning. The West Virginia native has hits in three straight games played.
  • Second baseman Joey DeMichele’s ninth inning single provided the Dash with their only other knock, avoiding the first one-hit performance by a Winston-Salem team in a nine-inning game since becoming the Dash in 2009.
  • The Dash pace the Carolina League with nine shutout losses this season. During the previous three seasons, Winston-Salem was blanked a combined 15 times.
  • The Dash are 1-4 at Frawley Stadium this season, with three of those losses coming via shutout. Winston-Salem is batting a collective .158 (24-for-152) with two runs scored during those five games in Delaware.
  • Right-hander Terance Marin will get the start for the Dash tonight. During his last start at Frederick on Monday, the California native gave up five runs and ten hits in five innings, suffering the loss in the 6-3 setback. Overall this season, Marin is 3-2 with a 3.45 ERA.

DASH DOTS:

• Catcher Michael Marjama scored a career-high three runs and slugged his first homer since June 7, a solo shot to left field. In nine games this month, the California native is batting .394 (13-for-33) with seven runs scored.

• Third baseman Nick Basto extended his hitting streak to a season-best eight games with a third-inning double on Thursday. The 20-year-old is hitting .375 (12-for-32) during that stretch.

• Outfielder Jason Coats tallied a single and drove in a run in Thursday’s contest. The Texas native now has hits in 15 of his last 16 games, and ranks fourth in the Carolina League with 62 RBIs.

• The Dash committed four errors on Thursday after making only three defensive miscues in their previous five contests. Overall this season, Winston-Salem has made 158 errors, ranking second in Minor League Baseball to the Fort Wayne TinCaps (Low-A, San Diego) with 170 blunders.

• Winston-Salem failed to record its second home sweep of the season on Thursday. The only sweep of an opponent at BB&T Ballpark occurred in mid-June against Wilmington in a rain-shortened two-game series.

• The Dash are invading Frawley Stadium for the first time since mid-April. Overall this season, Wilmington has won seven of 13 matchups, including three-of-four in the lone series in Delaware.

• Right-hander Tony Bucciferro will try to follow up on a nearly historic outing in his last start. The 24-year-old came within two outs of a nine-inning no-hitter at Frederick on Sunday. The last Winston-Salem hurler to accomplish that ferat was Bill Kazmierczak on May 20, 1988, when the club was called the Spirits.

• With his nine-inning shutout on Sunday, Bucciferro overtook Carolina’s Ryan Merritt for the most innings pitched in the Carolina League this season. The former Michigan State star has tossed 123.1 innings in 2014. Overall, Bucciferro is 7-9 with a 4.01 ERA.

• Outfielder Jason Coats went 2-for-4 with a single, double and run scored. The Texas native now has hits in 14 of his last 15 games, rising to fourth in the Carolina League in doubles with 27.

• After surrendering a first-inning run, Tyler Danish found his groove, allowing one run and six hits in six innings. The 19-year-old lowered his 2014 ERA to 2.27 between Low-A Kannapolis and Winston-Salem, a mark that ranks 15th among full-season qualifiers.

• The Dash will look to push past the .500 mark at BB&T Ballpark for the first time this season, currently holding a 26-26 record in the Triad. Winston-Salem has reached the break-even mark at home on two other occasions, but failed to win the next contest.

• The Dash are continuing their dominance over Potomac at BB&T Ballpark in this series. Since the beginning of the 2012 season, Winston-Salem boasts a 23-6 (.793) mark in home contests against the P-Nats.

• Right-hander J.B. Wendelken will try to lift Winston-Salem to a sweep this evening. The 21-year-old posted a 3.76 ERA during the first half of the year, but has a 9.49 ERA in five starts since the All-Star Break in his first professional season as a starter.

• Potomac will send right-hander Austin Voth to the mound this afternoon. Since he was promoted from Low-A Hagerstown in June, the 22-year-old has a 2-0 record and a staggering 0.27 ERA in five starts. During his most recent outing against Wilmington last Friday, Voth allowed one hit in seven innings while striking out eight.

• Right-hander Tyler Danish will toe the rubber for the Dash today. During his most recent start against Myrtle Beach last Friday, the 19-year-old tossed six innings, allowing two runs (one earned) while striking out six. In ten starts with Winston-Salem, Danish is 2-2 with a 3.64 ERA.
