2014 Grapefruit League Recap, Game 21

Miami Marlins 7, Houston Astros 2 

2014 Grapefruit League record: 8-13

W- Nathan Eovaldi (1-1)
L- Scott Feldman (0-2)

Astros home runs: None.

Zzzzzz.... oh. Sorry. I didn't watch all of this game, and this happened to be one of the rare baseball games that put me to sleep. 

Starting Pitcher: Scott Feldman

This year's Opening Day starter labored through 5 innings, and the defense behind him was shaky, as the Astros committed a pair of errors. Garrett Jones took him deep for a 2-run shot in the 1st. Feldman did record his usually healthy amount of groundball outs. 

Final line: L (0-2), 5 IP, 7 H (2-R HR), 5 R (4 earned), BB, 3 K


Josh Zeid was the first reliever out of the bullpen and gave up a run in the 6th on a couple of singles, but responded by striking out the side in order in the 7th. 

Matt Albers struck out 1 in a 1-2-3 8th, and Chad Qualls gave up a single to Austin Nola to begin the 9th, and uncorked a wild pitch to allow him to score. Qualls struck out 1 in his inning of work. 


The Astros got their 2 runs on a pair of RBI singles from L.J. Hoes (in the 4th) and Carlos Corporán (in the 5th). 

Robbie Grossman's double was the only extra-base hit, and Jose Altuve drew 2 walks.

Three Stars


Carlos Corporán, C
1-3, RBI single in 5th


Matt Albers, RHP
IP (8th), K


Josh Zeid, RHP
2 IP, 2 H, ER, 4 K

Next Up

Brett Oberholtzer will be on the bump for the Astros as they welcome the Cardinals to Kissimmee. They'll be getting a second look at Michael Wacha in the process as well. First pitch is at 1:05 Eastern.
