Astros Fall and Winter League Recaps

Results over the Thanksgiving Holiday (November 26-December 1)

Welcome to the WTHB post-Thanksgiving/Black Friday Recap Extravaganza!!! This recap will be a little different from what you've come to expect out of me, mainly because there's 5 days' worth of games to cover.


The Adelaide Bite managed to split their most recent series against the Canberra Cavalry. They dropped the first 2 games 6-2 and 6-0, but won 9-8 on Saturday and 11-8 in 11 innings on Sunday.

Chan-Jong Moon played in all 4 games in the series, going 2-13 with a walk, 2 runs scored, and 5 strikeouts. Tyler Brunnemann got his 1st win of the ABL campaign on Saturday as he went 3.1 innings and allowed 3 runs (2 earned, all in the 7th) on 2 hits (solo homer), walked 1, and struck out 2. That 7th inning was pretty rough for Bruno, but he pulled himself together and was able to get the win.

The Bite and Cavalry will meet again in Adelaide this upcoming weekend.


Well, over this stretch, Caracas lost 4 of the 5 games they played. They lost to Aragua 6-2, 10-7 against Caribes, and dropped 2 straight to Lara, 10-3 and 2-1. Their 1 win in this 5-game span was a 9-4 decision over Aragua on Thanksgiving Day. Two players featured for Leones over this time period.

Danry Vásquez played in all 5 games and went 6-16 with a double, 3 RBI, 3 runs scored, a walk, and 2 strikeouts.

Gregorio Petit returned to the fold for the first time since November 1. He played in 4 of the 5 games, going 2-17 with a walk and a strikeout.

Venezuela is currently on its All-Star Break. Tomorrow, the LVBP All-Stars will take on the Future Stars (Estrellas del Futuro) at 7:30.


On the 26th, Nestor Tejada went 1-3 with a bases-loaded walk in the 1st, which was part of a 5-run outburst out of the gate for Caracas in their 6-1 victory over Bravos.


Domingo Santana played in 2 games for Licey, going 1-3 against Gigantes on the 26th, and 0-2 with a walk and a strikeout against Escogido. Ruben Sosa went 0-3 on the 26th, then appeared in pinch-running roles against Escogido on the 28th, and against Águilas on the 30th. He scored against Escogido.

Teoscar Hernandez appeared in 3 games for Toros, He was a defensive sub against Estrellas on Friday and did not have an at-bat. Against Licey on Saturday, he went 1-3 with a double, an RBI, a walk, and scored twice. And on Sunday, he entered as a pinch-runner in the 7th inning of Toros' 5-0 win over Escogido and scored one of 3 runs in the frame. He remained in the game at CF and struck out in his only at-bat.


Leo Heras had a solid Thanksgiving in 6 games for Jalisco. He did have a 6-game hitting streak snapped on Saturday, but notched hits in the other 5 games. Heras finished 8-22 with 4 doubles, 4 RBI, 5 runs scored, 6 walks, 4 strikeouts, and a stolen base, which gives him 9 on the year. Jalisco went 4-2 in this stretch, taking 2 of 3 from Obregón and Los Mochis. They are back in action with 3 in Mazatlán beginning tonight at 8:00 Mountain.
