Astros Minor League Report - Games of August 16

Breathe easy, Masses...

AAA: Nashville 7, Round Rock 5
Round Rock blew another lead last night in Music City. Prince Fielder tied the game in the fifth off of Fernando Nieve with his 27th home run of the season, and Travis Driskill lost it in relief. Luke Scott homered, Carlos Rivera homered twice, and Brooks Conrad added two more hits.

AA: Tulsa 3, Corpus Christi 2
Peter Bauer and Chris Sampson pitched well (Sampson has been outstanding since returning to the Hooks in a relief role). Drillers' pitching combined to strike out ten Hooks, including 1B JR Phillips three times and Charlton Jimerson (only) once.

High A: Kinston 6, Salem 2
Mitch Talbot was victimized by two Ben Zobrist errors which lead to four unearned runs and a loss for the Avalanche. Zobrist managed to somewhat redeem himself with another great night with the bat, going 4-4 with a walk.

Low A: Lexington12, Greensboro 3
Jimmy Barthmaier continued his streak of outstanding pitching and earned his 10th win of the season. Justin Towles, Beau Torbert and Louis Santangelo all had three hit nights for the red-hot Legends.

Short Season A: Tri-City 12, Vermont 8
The Valley Cats pounded out 15 hits off of Expos' pitching, including four by stud DH Patrick Sellers. SP Clifford Davis had a great night, allowing only one hit and striking out eight in five innings.

Rookie: Pulaski 12, Greenville 3
Astro SP Jacob Hurry rushed his way to the showers in a nightmarish first inning, and the Astros never recovered. Josh Flores had a three-hit night for the Astros.
