Former Polk County standout Joel Booker cracked his first home run of the season Tuesday, highlighting a solid performance in Winston-Salem’s 6-4 road win over Myrtle Beach.
Booker finished the game 3-for-5 with three runs scored, a stolen base and the solo homer. That blast came in the top of the ninth to seal the Dash’s third win of the season.
The Dash are the Advanced Class A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox.
Booker is now 7-for-16 this season for the Dash. He has played in five games, starting at multiple outfield positions.
