Astros Winter League Recaps

Results for Wednesday, January 14, 2015


Estrellas 4, Águilas 2

Jonathan Villar went 1-4 with 2 strikeouts for Águilas.

Toros 5, Gigantes 3

Toros took control of this game in the top of the 9th when they scored 4 runs. New Astro James Hoyt came out of the Gigantes bullpen in the 9th and was able to get the final out of the inning via strikeout, but not before he allowed a 2-run double that gave Toros a 5-2 lead.

Tonight in the Dominican, Gigantes will head east to take on Estrellas, while Águilas will host Toros. Both games will start at 7:30 Atlantic.


Jalisco 4, Obregón 2 (Jalisco leads series 2-1)

Leo Heras was in the leadoff spot for Jalisco and he finished 2-5 with a double.

Game 4 of this series will take place at 7:30 Mountain.


Santurce 4, Caguas 1

Ruben Sosa went 2-3 with a walk and a run scored from the leadoff spot for Santurce. Roberto Peña was behind the plate for Caguas and finished 0-3.

Carolina 5, Mayagüez 2

Well, this game apparently got chippy late as 2 Carolina players and 4 Mayagüez players were tossed. Martin Maldonado got plunked in the 7th and then it looked like tensions reached a boiling point. Maldonado, René Garcia, Hiram Burgos, and Mario Santiago were all thrown out.

Carlos Corporán went 0-4. while Jobduan Morales opened up the scoring with a sac fly in the 3rd. He was hit by a pitch in the 8th, which ended Mayagüez pitcher Tyler Herron's night early. Mayagüez manager Lino Rivera got his marching orders soon after. Morales ended up scoring when Enrique Hernandez grounded into a force out.

Friday night's slate has Carolina hosting Caguas and Santurce hosting Mayagüez.
