Astros Minor League Report - Friday's games

AAA: Oklahoma 8, Round Rock 7
- Round Rock blew a four-run lead in the ninth inning in an awful loss to Oklahoma. 1B prospect Adrian Gonzalez's three-run homer was the big blast, coming off of T.J. Mathews. Brooks Conrad went 3-4 with two home runs, driving in four runs.

AA: Wichita 5, Corpus Christi 2
- Absolutely nothing interesting about this game. Charlton Jimerson struck out once and doubled.

High A: Salem 2, Myrtle Beach 1
- Chance Douglass pitched yet another great game to lead the Avalanche over the Pelicans. Ben Zobrist had a perfect night including his fourth home run.

Low A: West Virginia 6, Lexington 1
- The Power shut down the Legends. Louis Santagelo had two hits. Bad night for the Legends, much like every other Astros' affiliate other than Salem and Greenville.

Short Season A: Brooklyn 2, Tri-City 1
- The only offensive highlight was C Jose Lopez's first home run of the season. The pitching was good, but not good enough to win.

Rookie: Greenville 8, Bristol 0
- 1B Antonio Garcia went 3-4 with a home run, and Matt Hirsh pitched seven shutout innings in a great night for the Astros. Hirsh was the Astros' 30th round pick in this year's draft.
