Astros Fall and Winter League Recaps

Results for Thursday, November 20, 2014 (and one from today)

Also, a week's worth of Liga Paralela games.


Adelaide 14, Brisbane 6

The Bite took the opener in a romp, scoring in 5 consecutive innings (2nd-6th) and emerged from that stretch with a 13-2 lead. Chan-Jong Moon finished 2-4 with a solo homer (2) in the 4th, an RBI single in the 5th, and scored 2 runs.

From today: Adelaide 6, Brisbane 5

With the win, the Bite head into the weekend portion of the series with a chance to win it. Moon finished 1-4. Tyler Brunnemann was the second reliever out for Adelaide and he pitched 1.1 innings, getting all 4 of his outs via strikeout. He also allowed a run on 2 hits and walked 1.

Tomorrow/today, these two teams will continue their series at 7:00 Australian Central Time.


Caracas 12, Magallanes 3

Caracas scored a touchdown in the 1st, tacked on the extra point in the 2nd, and then got a field goal in the 5th, and finally, a safety in the 8th as they got a nice road win.

L.J. Hoes had 3 doubles in 4 at-bats, and 2 of those drove in 2 runs. The first one came in the 1st, and the other came in the 5th. He also led off the 3rd with a 2-bagger. Danry Vásquez extended his hitting streak to 6 games with an RBI single in the 5th. He'd come around to score on Hoes' double.

Tonight, the capital club returns home, where they will host Bravos at 7:30 Venezuelan time.


Really, Nestor Tejada is the only player in the system who is getting significant playing time in the Liga Paralela.

On Monday, he went 1-4 and scored 3 runs in the Little Lions' 13-0 shellacking of Zulia, and yesterday, he was 1-1 with 3 walks and 2 runs scored as Caracas topped Zulia again, this time by a 9-2 scoreline.

Later this morning, Caracas will take on Magallanes. First pitch is at 11:00 AM Venezuelan time.


Estrellas 3, Toros 2

Teoscar Hernandez went 0-3 with a strikeout for Toros.

Tonight, Toros will host Licey. First pitch is at 7:30 Atlantic.


Jalisco 9, Navojoa 2

The Horsemen will spend the weekend in Mexicali. The opening game of the series is tonight, at 6:00 Pacific.


Caguas 8, Carolina 0

All Caguas in this one. Roberto Peña went 0-3 with a walk and a strikeout, while Carlos Corporán went 1-2 for Carolina.
