It’s weird that Winston-Salem is playing in Brooklyn, especially since they’re both supposedly in the South Atlantic League, but a couple of Dash are enjoying their time at Coney Island.
Tyler Osik became the first Winston-Salem player to hit for the cycle since Steele Walker in 2019, going double, homer, triple and single.
Osik, a 25-year-old who grew up on the far side of Long Island, was drafted out of Central Florida in the 27th round in 2019. He’s hitting .312/.391/.455 this year, while splitting games between catcher, first base and DH.
Ben Norman was overshadowed by his teammate’s rare feat, but he went 2-for-5 with his ninth homer in just 28 games for the Dash.
The 24-year-old is hitting .314/.368/.619 over 134 plate appearances in Winston-Salem, which accounts for just about his entire pro career to date. The White Sox signed him as a non-drafted free agent out of Iowa after a similarly powerful display with the now-independent Great Falls Voyagers. He’s old for the level, but he’s also handling the drop-in assignment just about as well as he can.
It’s even more impressive when considering he started his tour with the Dash 3-for-24 with 10 strikeouts. He’s hit safely in 14 of his last 15 games, over which he’s hitting .419/.446/.823 with a far more reasonable 12 strikeouts over 65 plate appearances.
