Astros Fall and Winter League Recaps

Results for Tuesday, November 11, 2014

A quick note regarding the IBAF 21U World Cup: I've been informed by Ian Madden, Lachlan Madden's father, that Australia did qualify for the super round-robin stage of the tournament, as the top 3 teams in each group in the opening round advanced. I got thrown off because it was an 11-team tournament and didn't know if the top 2 advanced or the top 3.

The tournament continues tomorrow with the Super Round Robin. Team Australia will take on the hosts, Taiwan Chinese Taipei, at 6:30 P.M. Taipei time. That's 4:30 A.M. in Houston.


Please forgive my laziness. Also, I'm in a bit of a rush this morning. Here is Mr. Wallee Wright's eyewitness report of yesterday's game, which ended in a 4-4 tie between Salt River and Peoria.

In the penultimate game of the AFL season, the Rafters will host Glendale in the late game. First pitch is at 6:35 Mountain.


Caracas 4, Lara 2

The capital club got 3 in the top of the 8th to break a 1-1 tie. L.J. Hoes went 2-5 out of the leadoff spot, while Danry Vásquez finished 0-4.

Caracas will now spend the next couple of days in Maracaibo as they face Zulia. First pitch is at 7:30 Venezuelan time.


Caracas 9, Tampa Bay 5

Nestor Tejada got the start in LF for Caracas and finished 2-5.

The Little Lions will host Lara later this morning at 11:00 A.M. Venezuelan time.


Licey 4, Estrellas 1

After a bit of a slow start to the fall/winter, Domingo Santana seems to be getting back up to speed. He finished 1-4 and is now working on a modest 3-game hitting streak.

Licey will now begin a home-and-away tilt with Gigantes. The away portion is first; first pitch is at 7:30 Atlantic.

Toros 8, Águilas 5

5 Águilas errors doomed them in this one. I never played baseball, but... if your team's run and error totals are the same, then that's usually not a good sign.

Big night for Jonathan Villar, as he finished 3-4 with 2 solo homers and 3 runs scored for Águilas. Those 2 blasts are his first of the LIDOM campaign.

For Toros, Teoscar Hernandez entered the game as a pinch-runner for Tommy Medica in the 8th and came around to score. He remained in the game at LF and did not appear at the plate.

Change of venue; Toros will host Águilas at 7:30 Atlantic.


Jalisco 11, Hermosillo 2

Leo Heras absolutely wrecked Hermosillo pitching with a 3-homer night, his 2nd multi-homer game of the LMP season. He opened up the scoring with a solo shot in the 4th and then proceeded to club a 3-run homer in the 7th, and he topped off his outstanding performance with a 2nd solo shot in the 9th. The 3 homers give him 7 on the year, putting him in 2nd place behind Japhet Amador's 9 blasts.

Jalisco and Hermosillo will play again at 7:30 Mountain.


Santurce 4, Mayagüez 1

Delino DeShields finished 2-3 for Santurce as they got 2 runs in the 3rd and 4th innings to top Mayagüez.

Tonight, Santurce will play host to Caguas. First pitch is at 7:30 Atlantic.

San Juan 5, Carolina 4 in 10 innings

For Carolina, Carlos Corporán finished 1-4 before he was lifted for a pinch-runner, Jobduan Morales, in the 6th. Morales, who remained in the game as the DH, went 0-1.

Nolan Fontana was San Juan's DH and finished 0-3 with a sac fly in the 2nd.

San Juan will return to action tomorrow when they host Carolina again. Carolina, on the other hand, will be in Mayagüez tonight for a game at 7:30 Atlantic.
