White Sox: Weekend Farm Report, August 10-12

This past weekend featured a record-breaking night, a couple of shutout wins, and a weekend sweep for the Winston-Salem Dash. Sean Williams fills you in on all the action from the White Sox farm system during the weekend.

This past weekend on the farm featured a record-breaking night, a lot of home runs, a couple of shutout wins, and a weekend sweep for the Winston-Salem Dash. Let’s take a look at everything that happened on the farm over the weekend:

Charlotte Knights

On Friday, the Charlotte Knights put a crooked number on the board in the second inning and followed that up with another rally in the third inning. Eight runs later, the Knights saw themselves open their weekend with an easy 8-2 victory over the Rochester Red Wings. Here are some of the performances from the series opening win:

  • Charlie Tilson: 2-5, 3 RBI
  • Jose Rondon: 2-4, HR, BB, RBI
  • Seby Zavala: 3-5, 2B, RBI
  • Jordan Guerrero: 6.0 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 1 ER, BB, 7 K, (W)

The Knights would have another successful day on Saturday, putting eight runs on the board in back-to-back games. In addition to that, they had Michael Kopech on the mound and provided him with plenty of run support to get yet another easy win. Only this time, it was an 8-0 shutout. Here are some of the performances from the victory:

  • Eloy Jimenez: 2-5, HR, 2 RBI
  • Matt Skole: 3-4, 2B, RBI
  • Seby Zavala: 2-5, 2B, 2 RBI
  • Michael Kopech: 7.0 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 9 K, (W)


On Sunday, the Charlotte Knights looked to end their weekend with a three-game sweep of the Red Wings. Unfortunately, the Knights would fall short, losing 3-2 in a game where they never saw the lead. Here are some of the performances from the loss:

  • Ryan Cordell: 2-4
  • Jose Rondon: 1-4, HR, RBI
  • Dustin Garneau: 2-4, RBI
  • Caleb Frare: 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, K

It was a solid weekend for the Charlotte Knights who went 2-1 and now have an overall record of 54-62. Up next for the Knights is a three-game series where they will be hosting Vlad Guerrero Jr.and the Buffalo Bisons starting tonight. This should be a very entertaining series with Eloy Jimenez and Vlad Guerrero Jr. going head-to-head. Both of them have been on fire since being promoted to Triple-A, so expect to see a lot of offense from the two of them.

Birmingham Barons

The Birmingham Barons opened their weekend with a record-breaking Friday night. In a 18-2 win over the Montgomery Biscuits, the Barons hit seven home runs and that is now a franchise record for the most in a game. On top of that, Zack Collins hit a two-run home run and a grand slam in the same inning. Here are some of the performances from the record-breaking win:

  • Luis Alexander Basabe: 1-4, HR, 2 BB, RBI
  • Zack Collins: 3-6, 2 HR, 6 RBI
  • Danny Mendick: 1-2, HR, 3 BB, 2 RBI
  • Keon Barnum: 2-5, 2 HR, 6 RBI
  • Matt Rose: 1-5, HR, 3 RBI
  • Joel Booker: 3-5, BB
  • Dylan Cease: 5.2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 5 BB, 6 K, (W)


On Saturday, the Barons would be on the opposite end of a lopsided game. After two consecutive games featuring a high-powered offense, the Barons would simmer down on Saturday, losing 8-1 to the Biscuits. Here are some of the performances from the game:

  • Mitch Roman: 2-4, 2B
  • Alex Call: 1-4, 2B
  • Zack Collins: 1-4
  • Jose Ruiz: 2.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K

The Barons would continue to have a quiet day on Sunday, dropping the rubber match of the series 7-3. Starting pitcher Bernardo Flores left the game in the fourth inning and an update on his status is still unknown up to this point. Here are some of the performances from the series finale:

  • Luis Alexander Basabe: 2-4, 2B, BB
  • Jameson Fisher: 2-4
  • Joel Booker: 1-3, 2 BB
  • Danny Mendick: 0-4, BB, 2 RBI

After a hot start to the weekend, the Barons wrap things up going 1-2 and giving themselves an overall record of 56-62. Up next for the Barons is a five-game home series vs. the Tennessee Smokies beginning on Tuesday.

Winston-Salem Dash

The Winston-Salem Dash quickly saw themselves down 3-0 on Friday. However, they would battle back to trim the lead to one run and eventually get the win in a 5-4 nail-biter over the Potomac Nationals. Here are some of the performances from the win:

  • Luis Gonzalez: 1-4, HR, RBI
  • Nick Madrigal: 1-2, 2B, BB
  • Blake Rutherford: 1-3, BB
  • Ti’Quan Forbes: 2-4, 3B
  • Hunter Schryver: 1.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, K
  • Tyler Johnson: 1.0 IP, H, 0 R, 0 ER, K, (S)

The Dash’s game on Saturday would be a slightly different story. In this one, they shutout Potomac and picked up a 4-0 win in Alec Hansen’s first start with the club this season. Here are some of the performances from the shutout victory:

  • Luis Gonzalez: 2-4, 2 2B, RBI
  • Nick Madrigal: 1-4, RBI
  • Laz Rivera: 2-3, 2 RBI
  • Blake Rutherford: 1-2, 2B, 2 BB
  • Alec Hansen: 2.0 IP, H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, K
  • Lincoln Henzman: 3.0 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K

On Sunday, the Dash swept the Nationals in a 6-3 win to end their weekend. After some back and forth scoring, the Dash pulled away as they scored three unanswered runs to help secure the victory. Here are some of the performances from the game:

  • Luis Robert: 2-4, 3B, RBI

The Dash have now won five straight games and continue to be one of the most impressive White Sox affiliates of the 2018 season. After the weekend sweep, the Winston-Salem Dash have an overall record of 71-45. Up next for them is a three-game road series against the Buies Creek Astros starting on Tuesday.

Kannapolis Intimidators

The Kannapolis Intimidators got their weekend started off on a bad note as they lost 4-2 to the Lexington Legends. The Intimidators went up 2-0 after the top of the first, but would cough up four unanswered runs and were unable to fight back. Here are some of the performances from Friday’s game:

  • Ian Dawkins: 1-4, HR, BB, RBI
  • Luis Curbelo: 1-4
  • Steele Walker: 1-4,
  • Tyler Frost: 1-4, RBI
  • Andrew Perez: 2.0 IP, H, 0 R, 0 ER, BB

On Saturday, the Intimidators were a victim to mother nature again in what seems to be a weekly trend for the ball club. Saturday’s game would be postponed, giving them a double header on Sunday with both games being seven innings in length. In the first game, the Intimidators lost 8-2 to the Lexington Legends. Here are some of the performances from the first game:

  • Tate Blackman: 1-3, HR, RBI
  • Tyler Frost: 1-2, 3B
  • Ramon Beltre: 1-3, 2B
  • Bennett Sousa: 1.1 IP, H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

In the second game, the Intimidators would give up eight runs again in another loss. The offense would be more productive in this one, but it wasn’t enough in an 8-4 loss to the Lexington Legends. Here are some of the performances from the second game:

  • Craig Dedelow: 2-3, 2 2B
  • Tyler Frost: 2-3, HR, 4 RBI
  • Johan Cruz: 1-3

It was a weekend to forget for the Kannapolis Intimidators as they lost all three games they played. They finish their weekend with an overall record of 62-53. Up next for the Intimidators is one more game in Lexington, before they head back to Kannapolis for a three-game series against the Augusta GreenJackets.

Great Falls Voyagers

The Great Falls Voyagers picked up their only win of the weekend on Friday. In a 12-7 win over the Idaho Falls Chukars, the Voyagers had a productive night throughout most of their lineup. Here are some of the performances from the win:

  • Lenyn Sosa: 4-5, 2B, RBI
  • Bryce Bush: 1-5, 2B, RBI
  • Amado Nunez: 3-5, 2B, 2 RBI
  • Alex Destino: 2-5, 2B, 3 RBI
  • Micah Coffey: 2-4, HR, RBI

On Saturday, the Voyagers were involved in another high scoring contest. However, they were on the losing end this time as the Chukars scored seven unanswered runs, beating the Voyagers 12-10. Here are some of the performances from the loss:

  • Bryce Bush: 1-3, 2 BB, RBI
  • Alex Destino: 4-5, 2 3B, 2 RBI
  • Romy Gonzalez: 1-6, 2B, 2 RBI
  • Gunnar Troutwine: 2-3, 2B, 2 BB, 4 RBI
  • Davis Martin: 3.0 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, BB, 4 K

The Voyagers ended their weekend in a 13-4 loss against the Chukars. Their offense provided plenty of runs to keep the previous two games close, but on Sunday, they were unable to get a spark and the game was out of reach early. Here are some of the performances from Sunday’s game:

  • Jay Estes: 2-4, 2 2B, RBI
  • Maiker Feliz: 1-3, 2B, BB, RBI
  • Amado Nunez: 2-4, 2B, 2 RBI
  • Micah Coffey: 1-3, BB

After going 1-2 this weekend, the Great Falls Voyagers fall to an overall record of 25-28. Up next for the Voyagers is a three-game series where they will be hosting the Ogden Raptors.

AZL White Sox

On Friday, the AZL White Sox picked up a 6-5 win over the AZL Indians 1 in a 10 inning game. The White Sox put three runs on the board in the tenth. The Indians scored two in the bottom half of the frame, but that was all they could get and the White Sox walked away with a win. Here are some of the performances from the win:

  • Anderson Comas: 2-4, BB, 2 RBI
  • Lency Delgado: 2-4, RBI
  • Luis Mieses: 1-4, RBI
  • Zack Burdi: 1.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, K

That would be the only game this weekend for the AZL White Sox. They had a scheduled off day on Saturday and Sunday’s game was postponed due to weather. With the win, the AZL White Sox improve their overall record to 22-20. Up next for them is a double header against the AZL Brewers starting tonight.
