SALEM, VA (June 29, 2019) – Despite 10 hits and a quality start from Jonathan Stiever, the Dash fell 2-1 against the Salem Red Sox on Saturday night at Haley Toyota Field.
Offensively, Winston-Salem (3-7, 41-33) left nine men on base. Meanwhile, Stiever (1-1) weathered a rocky first inning to earn his second consecutive quality start in a losing effort. The right-hander did issue a career-high four walks, but allowed just two runs on four hits while striking out six.
Salem (7-3, 32-45) struck against Stiever in the bottom of the first. With one out, Victor Acosta doubled into center field before a wild pitch allowed him to reach third. After Ryan Fitzgerald walked, Pedro Castellanos doubled down the left-field line to score Acosta and push Fitzgerald to third. The next batter, Edgar Corcino, hit a sacrifice fly to right field, scoring Fitzgerald to make it 2-0.
Following the first, Salem was held scoreless for the remainder of the ballgame. In relief of Stiever, Tyler Johnson and Jose Nin combined to toss three scoreless frames.
The Dash notched their only run against Salem starter Enmanuel De Jesus (5-6) in the top of the fifth inning. With two outs, Mitch Roman laced a double down the left-field line. Then, Steele Walker blooped a single into right-center field to bring home Roman and cut the Salem lead to 2-1.
Winston-Salem had its best opportunity to tie the score in the top of the sixth. Zach Remillard and Craig Dedelow hit back-to-back singles to begin the inning. After a Carlos Perez lineout and Tate Blackman strikeout, Jordan George drew a walk to load the bases. DeJesus was then replaced by Rio Gomez, who promptly induced a flyout from Tyler Frost to end the threat.
The Dash conclude their four-game set with the Red Sox on Sunday at 2:05 p.m. Right-hander Kade McClure (1-1, 1.90 ERA) will take the mound for Winston-Salem against fellow righty Daniel Gonzalez (2-6, 4.57 ERA). Pregame coverage begins at 1:50 p.m., and fans can catch all of the action on wsdash.com/broadcast, MiLB.tv and the TuneIn Radio App.
