Astros Winter League Recaps

Results for Tuesday, December 30, 2014

And here we are. The last recaps for the year 2014.


Estrellas 4, Águilas 1

Both teams scored a run in the 4th, but it was Estrellas that came out on top as they held Águilas hitless and scoreless over the final 5.2 innings. Jonathan Villar finished 0-3 with a strikeout for Águilas.

After a 2-day break for the New Year, Águilas will be back in action on Friday when they host Toros.


Carolina 7, Caguas 2

Carolina scored in just 1 inning, but... they still ended up on top, thanks to the touchdown they put up in the 2nd inning. Jobduan Morales appeared as a defensive replacement in the 7th to catch and went 0-1. For Caguas, Roberto Peña went 0-4.

This was the final regular-season game for both squads.

Santurce 4, San Juan 1

This game was memorable as it featured one man playing all 9 positions. Jose Lozada started in center field for San Juan. He played 1 inning at 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, LF, RF, then in the 8th, he moved behind the plate, and then got the final 2 outs of the inning on the mound.

Ruben Sosa got the start in CF for Santurce and finished 2-2 with a walk, a run scored, and 2 steals, his first 2 swipes in Puerto Rico. Travis Ballew was the first man out of the Santurce bullpen and he got the win with 2 scoreless, allowing 2 hits, walking 1, and striking out 2.

Santurce has 2 games to finish with Mayagüez today; one of them originally started on the 16th, but was suspended. A doubleheader was also scheduled for that day but was rained out, so now they're playing those games today. Then, and only then, will the regular season be completed.


Caballos 16, Industriales 1

I'm guessing that there's a mercy rule in Panamanian baseball because this game was made final after 6.5 innings. As you can see, it was all Caballos. Telvin Nash smashed a solo homer, drew a walk, and scored twice. Tyler White finished 0-2, and Jack Mayfield finished 4-4 with a double, an RBI, a stolen base, and scored 3 times.

Caballos returns to action on Friday when they take on Águilas.

Indios 3, Águilas 0

Rodrigo Ayarza got the start at 2B for Indios and went 2-3. Jose Montero was the first man out of the Indios pen and threw 2 scoreless, allowing 3 hits and striking out 3.

Indios will face Industriales on Friday, when the league resumes play.
