White Sox MiLB Report: Winston-Salem Wins Fifth Consecutive Game
White Sox High-A affiliate is on a roll as they won their fifth consecutive game on Thursday night. Double-A affiliate was able to record a victory at home.
The Chicago White Sox are on a roll as they’ve won four consecutive games. And now, the White Sox High-A affiliate is also on a roll after their fifth straight win on Thursday night. The Winston-Salem Dash led by Nick Madrigal defeated the Carolina Mudcats 10-5 at home.
Madrigal was 2-for-4 in the game with a walk. For the first round draft pick from 2018, he’s been on a hot streak and is hitting .317 in his last 10 games for the Dash. It will be great if Madrigal can keep it going as he would be a prime candidate for a promotion to Double-A soon.
The Dash were also led by Tyler Frost who collected two hits and Jordan George. George had a game-high four hits which included a bases-clearing three-run double for Winston-Salem. With the win, the Dash improved their record to 29-23 on the season. They’re currently in second place in the Carolina League Southern Division and 6.5 games behind the division leader.

Another affiliate of the White Sox also won their home contest on Thursday night. Double-A Birmingham defeated the Montgomery Biscuits 5-2 thanks in large part to a grand slam from Gavin Sheets. Sheets hit the grand slam in the eighth inning after the Barons trailed the Biscuits 2-1.
The first baseman is currently hitting just .234 on the season with four home runs and 24 RBIs. Luis Robert, who has been one of the hottest hitters for the Barons, went 1-for-4 in Birmingham’s win over Montgomery.
Every White Sox affiliate including Low-A Kannapolis won their respective games on Thursday except Triple-A Charlotte. Kannapolis did, however, lose on Thursday as they played two games. The Knights were shutout again on the road against the Indianapolis Indians in a 4-0 loss.
Joel Booker was the only Knights player to get any hits as he went 2-for-2 at the plate and also had one walk. The Knights haven’t scored a run since the ninth inning of their last win over the Indians this past Tuesday night.
