Astros Winter League Recaps

Results for the weekend of December 26-28, 2014


The Adelaide Bite dropped the first game of their series as part of a series-opening twinbill with the Canberra Cavalry, but they wound up taking the next 3 to win the series. This was a doubleheader because Friday was Boxing Day.

Saturday Game 1: Canberra 2, Adelaide 1

Chan-Jong Moon finished 0-2 with a walk and a strikeout. Tyler Brunnemann worked around a hit to record the final out of the 6th.

Saturday Game 2: Adelaide 2, Canberra 1

Moon went 1-3 with a walk, a strikeout, and a run scored.

Sunday: Adelaide 6, Canberra 3

Moon finished 2-4 with 2 runs scored.

Brunnemann was summoned to secure the win in what was turning out to be a rough 9th inning. He inherited a bases-loaded situation after the pitcher in front of him, Troy Scott, got a double play. The Cavalry dinged Bruno for a 2-run single (which allowed 2 of Scott's runs to score), and then a rare walk issued by Brunnemann re-loaded the bases. But, he was finally able to finish off the game before things started snowballing again.

Monday: Adelaide 6, Canberra 5 in 12 innings

Moon went 0-4 with a walk, a strikeout, and a run scored. Brunnemann worked around a 2-out double to throw a scoreless 10th, striking out 1.
