Winston-Salem Dash 5, Myrtle Beach Pelicans 2
A Hunter Jones groundout became a comedy of errors for Myrtle Beach – beginning with a wild throw by Yasiel Balaguert to pitcher Daury Torrez, followed by Torrez’s errant throw to the plate – allowing a Winston-Salem runner to score, giving the Dash a two-run advantage. The Dash would add two more in the eight and put the game out of reach.
Winston-Salem pitcher Matt Cooper went seven innings, giving up one run on five hits. He struck out a career-high nine batters in earning the win.
W– Matt Cooper (2-2) L– Zach Hedges (3-3)
