Astros Minor League Playoff Recap: September 8th

The playoffs continued last night. Let’s take a look at how the teams performed.

AA: Corpus Christi Hooks (1-1) won 5-4 (BOX SCORE)

Incredible game last night for Corpus. Thornton got the start and pitched well allowing 1 run over 6.2 innings of work. The Hooks offense was silent as they fell to a 4-0 deficit in the 8th inning. In the bottom of the 8th inning, the rally started. A Stubbs walk and Laureano double put two men on in the 8th. Davis had an RBI groundout to get the Hooks on the board. Tanielu followed with an RBI double to make it 4-2. Two batters later Boyd came through with an RBI single to make it 4-3. With Boyd at third and two outs, Midland’s pitcher threw a wild pitch allowing Boyd to score and tie the game up. Peterson tossed a scoreless 9th to send it to the bottom half tied 4-4. The Hooks loaded the bases with one out and it brought Nunez to the plate. He promptly lined a single to center field for the walk-off RBI and tied the series at 1.

A+: Lancaster Jethawks (1-1) won 17-11 (BOX SCORE)

Crazy game in Lancaster last night. The Jethawks fell behind early with RC getting two runs in the first inning. Lancaster responded immediately with 8 runs in the bottom of the first inning thanks to a Duarte RBI single, Muniz 2 run double, Woodward 2 run HR, and a Correa 3 run HR. Hernandez started and while he gave up 8 runs, he managed to strikeout 6 over his 5 innings of work. Wik added a solo HR in the 3rd inning and Mizell added a 2 run HR in the 4th inning. They weren’t done though as Ritchie and Mizell hit back to back homers in the 6th inning. They would get 3 more runs to bring their total up to 17. Weathersby and Murphy both had scoreless outings to mount any comeback effort.

Today’s starters according to MiLB.com:

CC: Rogelio Armenteros (-.– ERA)

LAN: TBD
