  My Site News: ASTROS DROP 2ND ROUND GAME 17-14  

Tonight at the Indian Springs Baseball Complex in Broken Arrow, OK, the Astros came up on the short end of a 17-14 decision against the Lightning. Devin Kruse started the game off with a leadoff double. He then scored the game's first run on an rbi single by Andy Smith. Later in the first inning, Caleb Gomez hit an rbi triple to right to knock Smith home. Gomez was then driven home when Micah Mcyntire grounded out to the pitcher. The Lightning put up 4 runs in the bottom of the first to make it a 4-3 ballgame. The 'Stros struggled in the 2nd, going 3 up and 3 down. Though the team was hitting the ball hard, some stellar defense on the part of the Lightning's first baseman and pitcher worked to negate the hard hit balls. In the bottom of the 2nd, the Lightning tacked on 5 runs to make it a 9-3 margin going into the 3rd inning. Kruse led off the 3rd inning with his second double of the night. Smith followed with an rbi single to center field. Caleb Gomez doubled Smith home, then was driven in on a groundout by Mcyntire to the pitcher. After 2 and a half the score stood at 9-6, Lightning. In the bottom of the 3rd, the Lightning put up another five spot to go up 14-6. The bottom of the order got things going in the 4th inning with Tommy Talbot and Alex Mirabal starting things off with back-to-back singles. Austin Wyatt followed this up with a 2-run single to bring the score to 14-8. After an Eduardo Vargas single to right, Ian Pellersells coninued his torrid hitting streak with a double to right to drive in 2 more runs. Andy Smith hit an rbi triple to drive in Pellersells to cap the scoring in the 4th. After 4, the score stood at 14-11. In the bottom of the 4th, the Astros began to show some signs of life on defense and held the Lightning to just 3 runs, 2 of which came with 2 outs. The score stood at 17-11 heading into the final frame. In the top of the 5th, Caden Nodine started things off with a hard shot to the shorstop. The shorstop fired the ball to first just barely (if at all) beating Nodine to the bag. Micah Mcyntire and Hunter Dunnam started a 2-out rally with back-to-back doubles before being plated on a 3-bagger by Tommy Talbot. The final score was 17-14 as the Astros could not continue the rally and the Lightning retired the side. Despite some sloppy play at times, this ballclub hung in there and just came up short tonight. Much credit in this game has to go to the pitcher and first baseman of the Lightning. The pair combined for 8 putouts in the game. The Astros will now attempt to get back up off of the mat on Thursday night at 6:00 p.m..........Shawn Smith
