Astros Winter League Recaps

Results for Saturday, January 17, and Sunday, January 18, 2015

*all games are from Sunday unless otherwise noted


Adelaide's magic number to clinch the best record in the ABL entering the weekend was 2. They pounded Melbourne 10-3, and the other thing they needed was a Perth loss. Well, they got the Perth loss in the same night as Canberra topped them 7-5, and as a result, Adelaide clinched the top spot in the ABL, and a spot in the ABL Championship Series.

Melbourne 6, Adelaide 4

However, the Bite were foiled in their bid to sweep the Aces as they allowed 1 run apiece in the 6th, 7th, and 9th innings. Chan-Jong Moon finished 1-3 with 2 walks, a run scored, and stole 3 bases (18).

This upcoming weekend, Adelaide will travel to Melbourne for the final series of the regular season.


The Championship Series is underway! Estrellas stormed out of the gates with an 11-2 victory on Saturday.

Sunday: Estrellas 7, Gigantes 3 (Estrellas leads 2-0)

In their first year in Guadalajara, the team formerly known as the Algodoneros de Guasave will be playing for a championship. They'll await the winner of the Mexicali-Culiacán series; they're playing a deciding game 7 tonight.
