Astros Winter League Recaps

Results for December 23-25, 2014

Most of the leagues had a Christmas break. For many players, especially the Americans playing overseas this winter, they find themselves living far away from home, far from their loved ones as they continue playing a game they love almost as much as they love their families. (I may catch some heat for this statement.)

This was a very light schedule that only saw significant action in Mexico, which was off on Christmas Eve, but every team was playing on Christmas Day. In Puerto Rico, 4 of the 5 teams were in action on Tuesday.


Charros del Jalisco

Tuesday: Jalisco 7, Obregón 1

Leo Heras went 1-3 with a walk and scored 2 runs for Jalisco as they blew this one open with a 4-run 5th.

In their final series of the season, Jalisco will host Mazatlán beginning on Saturday.

Tomateros de Culiacán

Thursday: Hermosillo 3, Culiacán 2

Gonzalo Sañudo was the first man out of the Culiacán bullpen on Christmas night, and he worked around a hit to throw a scoreless 7th, striking out 1.

Culiacán will travel to Mexicali for their final series of the year.


Results from Tuesday

San Juan 3, Santurce 2 in 14 innings

This was the 2nd game of a doubleheader. This game was originally scheduled for November 22, but rain washed it out, and if I'm not mistaken, they tried making this game up once already, only to see it get suspended by rain yet again.

Travis Ballew, who is actually in Puerto Rico and not Panama, came on to begin the 8th and got the first 2 outs before he gave way to David Rollins, who struck out 4 over 2.1 perfect frames.

Santurce will host Caguas tonight at 7:30 Atlantic.

Mayagüez 4, Carolina 2

Carlos Corporán went 2-4 with a double and a run scored for Carolina.

Carolina will travel to San Juan tomorrow.
