Astros Fall and Winter League Recaps

Results for Wednesday, November 6, 2014


Salt River 8, Scottsdale 4

W- Edgar Olmos (1-1)
L- Clayton Blackburn (1-2)

Salt River HRs by Astros players: None.

The Rafters withstood a 4-run 1st from the Scorpions and responded by scoring 8 unanswered to win the game. A 5-run 5th tipped the balance of the game in Salt River's favor, and Mitch Lambson's efforts out of the bullpen helped keep the Rafters from getting swept down the river. I should really stop trying to be funny.

Andrew Aplin went 2-5 and scored twice. Joe Sclafani finished 2-4, and both of his hits were RBI singles coming in the 5th and the 8th. Rio Ruiz went 0-5 with a run scored.

Mitch Lambson was called on to be the tourniquet after the Scorpions stung Rafters starter Christian Bergman in the 1st, and he delivered with 2.1 scoreless, allowing just 1 hit and striking out 3.

The Rafters will host Mesa in the late game; first pitch is at 6:35 Mountain.


Lara 5, Caracas 3

W- Raul Rivero (1-0)
L- Kyler Newby (1-1)
S- Luis Vizcaino (3)

Caracas HRs by Astros players: None.

I know Carlos Perez isn't a member of the Astros organization, but on his last day as an Astro, he went 2-4 with 2 doubles and a run scored. Danry Vásquez, who is still very much a member of the Astros organization, went 2-4 with an RBI single in the bottom of the 9th.

Caracas will now play a home-and-away with Navegantes. The home portion is tonight at 7:30 Venezuelan time.


Águilas 2, Escogido 1

W- Liam Hendriks (2-0)
L- Edward Valdez (2-1)
S- Matt Ramsey (3)

Águilas HRs by Astros players: None.

Jonathan Villar went 0-2 with a walk and a strikeout for Águilas.

Águilas will be back in action on Friday when they travel east to take on Estrellas.

Gigantes 5, Toros 2

W- Juan Perez (2-0)
L- David Purcey (0-2)
S- Ramon Ramirez (5)

Toros HRs by Astros players: None.

Gigantes came alive with 2 in the 7th to take the lead and 2 more in the 8th for insurance.

Jandel Gustave came on with 2 outs in the 5th and struck out Tyler Moore to end the inning. He worked around a leadoff walk to Yasmani Grandal to get the first 2 outs of the 6th as he got Matt Hague to pop out and struck out Cameron Maybin.

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

Toros will travel to Santo Domingo to take on Licey tomorrow night.


Jalisco 5, Mazatlán 0

W- Graham Godfrey (3-0)
L- Amilcar Gaxiola (3-1)

Jalisco HRs by Astros players: None.

In his first appearance in the Jalisco lineup since Halloween, Leo Heras went 1-4 with a walk and a run scored.

These two teams will play again at 7:00.


Mayagüez 9, San Juan 0

W- Tomas Santiago (2-0)
L- Jay Rogers (0-1)

San Juan HRs by Astros players: None.

Nolan Fontana went 0-4 with a strikeout for San Juan in a game where they got completely dominated.

Tonight, San Juan will host Caguas at 7:00 Atlantic.

Santurce 7, Caguas 2

W- Jorge Martinez (2-0)
L- Jacob Barnes (0-1)

Caguas HRs by Astros players: None.
Santurce HRs by Astros players: None.

A 4-run 6th gave Santurce the separation they needed; they had only been leading 3-2 before that outburst.

Delino DeShields, who was making his first appearance in the Santurce lineup after his 2nd Opening Day was cut short because he was plunked, went 2-3 with an RBI single in the 2nd, a bases-loaded walk in the 6th, and a run scored. Roberto Peña was 0-4 for Caguas.

Caguas will travel to San Juan, while Santurce will travel to Carolina. Both games will take place at 7:00 Atlantic.
