Mudcats rally late to upend Dash, 3-2
One night after being eliminated from playoff contention, the Carolina Mudcats bounced back with a walk off win Sunday, downing the Winston-Salem Dash 3-2. With two away in the bottom of the ninth and Logan Vick on second, Yhoxian Medina sent a chopper down the third base line, which Trey Michalczewski managed to backhand. Breaking on contact, Vick raced past a befuddled Michalczewski and turned home. The throw beat Vick to the plate, but the speedster dodged Michael Marjama’s tag to complete the wild walk off.

Around the Farm: August 28, 2014
Thursday night in the Cleveland organization was highlighted by the old and the new. At this point, Nellie Rodriguez putting up big numbers in Lake County has become old news, as the first baseman has spent most of 2014 doing just that. Casey Shane shutting down the New York-Penn League is new, however, as the 2013 sixth round pick was only recently called up from the Arizona League. Join Jim Piascik as he recaps all of the action in the organization as he takes you Around the Farm.

Consistency is the name of Merritt's game
After going 6-9 in Lake County during 2013, few people, if any, saw a potential ace in Carolina Mudcats left-hander Ryan Merritt before the season began. That perception has certainly changed now. A 16th round draft pick in 2011, Merritt is having one of the best seasons in Mudcats franchise history, including before they were affiliated with the Indians. The IBI's Zachary Francis recently sat down and spoke with the talented lefty about his season...

Mudcats rally to beat Dash, 8-7
Despite losing an early lead, Eric Haase’s RBI single in the top of the ninth pushed the Carolina Mudcats ahead for an 8-7 victory over the Winston-Salem Dash Friday. Carolina was in control early, with the Mudcats bats jumping all over Dash starter J.B. Wendelken in the top of the first. Yhoxian Medina opened the contest with a base hit up the middle before Yandy Diaz quickly put the Mudcats ahead with a two-run shot to right. Later in the inning, Torsten Boss doubled the advantage, unleashing a homer of his own to right plating Alex Monsalve as the Mudcats grabbed the 4-0 lead.
