Astros Winter League Recaps

Results for Tuesday, December 16, 2014


The ABL All-Star Game took place yesterday (today Down Under), with the natives defeating the imports 11-8. Team Australia took control with 8 in the bottom of the 8th. Tyler Brunnemann was on the World Team and allowed a hit to the only batter he faced in the 7th inning.

The season resumes today as Adelaide welcomes the Sydney Blue Sox to South Australia. Last week, they took 3 of 4 on the road from Sydney. First pitch is at 7:30 Australian Central Time.


Caracas 4, Zulia 3 in 11 innings

In the only game in Venezuela last night, Caracas walked off with an extra-inning win. Gregorio Petit finished 1-5 with a double and a run scored, while Danry Vásquez entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the 8th and remained in the game as the left fielder. He walked to lead off the bottom of the 11th and scored the winning run on a botched double play attempt from Zulia. They were trying to double off Petit, which would've sent the game to the 12th.

The capital club is on the island of Margarita tonight as they take on Bravos. First pitch is at 7:30 Venezuelan time.


Indios 4, Águilas 1

Harold Arauz got the start for Águilas and took the loss as he allowed 2 runs on 4 hits and struck out 1 over 3 innings.

Cris Santamaria was the first man out of the Indios bullpen and threw a 1-2-3 6th, while Juan Delis finished it out. Águilas spoiled the shutout when they got an unearned run off of Delis in the 9th; he allowed a hit and struck out 2.

These two teams will play again at 7:00 Eastern.

Caballos 8, Industriales 4

Telvin Nash went 2-3 with 2 doubles and 2 runs scored for Caballos. Jack Mayfield finished 1-4, and Tyler White finished 2-3 with a double, 2 runs scored, and 2 walks.

Blaine Sims got the start for Caballos and allowed 3 runs on 7 hits, walked 1, and struck out 2 over 5 innings.

These two teams will play again; the only difference is a change of venue. First pitch is at 7:00 Eastern.


Gigantes 6, Águilas 5

Jonathan Villar finished 1-4 with a run scored and opened the scoring with an RBI infield single in the 2nd for Águilas.

Tonight, Águilas will host Escogido at 7:30 Atlantic.

Licey 8, Escogido 2

In a battle between the bottom 2 clubs in the Dominican, it was Licey taking this one with 8 unanswered after Escogido put up 2 in the 3rd. Ruben Sosa went 1-3 as the DH, while Domingo Santana was 2-4 with a double, a walk, and a run scored.

Licey will host the leaders, Estrellas, tonight at 7:30 Atlantic.


Jalisco 3, Hermosillo 2

Leo Heras, in his customary #3 spot for Jalisco, went 1-3 with a walk and 2 Ks.

The middle game of this series is tonight at 7:00.


Both games on the slate last night were rained out. Tonight, Carolina will take on Mayagüez, while San Juan will face Santurce. Both of these games will start at 7:30 Atlantic.
