  My Site News: ASTROS DROP SEASON OPENER  
 

ASTROS DROP SEASON OPENER
The Astros came up on the short end of the stick in their matchup against the Tigers tonight at Indian Springs Baseball Complex.   Things started out well enough as the Astros led off the top of the first inning with five runs. Second Baseman Devin Kruse got things going with a hard liner to the right center field fence which he was able to turn into an inside-the-park home run. Pitcher Andy Smith followed Kruse with a double to center field and was driven home on a well-hit double by designated hitter Alex Mirabal. First Baseman Micah Mcyntire and outfielder Hunter Dunnam followed with back-to-back doubles plating Mirabal and Mcyntire. Outfielder Tommy Talbot finished up the scoring onslaught with a base hit to drive in Dunnam to make the score 5-0.

In the bottom of the first, the Tigers put up three runs to pull within 5-3. In the second inning, the 'Stros couldn't muster up much offense as the only scoring came when Kruse doubled home shortstop Caden Nodine who had reached on a single to left. The score then stood at 6-3, good guys. The Tigers came up with 5 runs in their half of the inning to grab a 8-6 lead.

In the third inning the Astros were only able to bang out two runs to knot the game up at 8-8. The runs came on an RBI triple by Dunnam to plate Mcyntire who had reached on a double. Earlier in the inning Smith was driven in by Mcyntire after reaching on an infield single. The Tigers tacked on three more in the bottom of the frame to give themselves and 11-8 lead.

The fourth inning saw the Astros put up a two-spot on a 2-run inside the park homer by outfielder Ian Pellersells which drove in Nodine who had doubled to lead off the inning. Trailing 11-10, the Astros took the field in the bottom of the fourth looking to lock down the Tiger offense and stay alive in the ballgame. After a freak power outage delayed play for about fifteen minutes, the Tigers added 5 more runs to put the game out of reach. The final tally was 16-11.

Defensively the Astros were led by Pitcher Andy Smith (caught 1 line drive), Left Fielder Austin Wyatt, First Baseman Micah Mcyntire, and Third Baseman Caleb Gomez (caught 1 fly ball). Eduardo Vargas went 1 for 2 batting as he manned the catcher position this evening.

The Astros will look to get back on the winning track as they take on the Royals at 10:00 am on Saturday. The 'Stros downed the Royals 17-6 last week in their pre-season tournament.........Shawn Smith
