  My Site News: ASTROS DOWNGRADE HURRICANES TO TROPICAL DEPRESSIONS  
 

ASTROS DOWNGRADE HURRICANES TO TROPICAL DEPRESSIONS
The Astros continued their fine play tonight as they ran their record to 2 wins and 1 loss with a victory over the Hurricanes.

The top of the first inning saw the Hurricanes go down quietly with only batter reaching base. In fact throughout the game the 'Stros allowed only 3 runners to get past second base. In the first inning, first baseman Micah Mcintyre recorded 2 unassisted outs at first sandwiched around another putout on a throw from pitcher Andy Smith to first base.

In the bottom of the inning the top of the order got the ball rolling with second baseman Devin Kruse leading things off with a home run. Andy Smith then doubled on a hard shot to center field and was driven home on a three-run home run by Micah Mcintyre. Mcintyre's homer plated outfielder Eduardo Vargas who had singled as well. After a single to left, outfielder Hunter Dunnam capped the scoring in the inning when he was driven in on a single by shortstop Caden Nodine. After one inning the score stood at 5-0, good guys.

The Hurricanes got on the scoreboard in the second to pull within 5-1. The Astro defense was led in the second inning by second baseman Kruse tagging a runner as he headed for second base. Third baseman Caleb Gomez recorded an out in the inning as he put a nice tag on a Hurricane runner attempting to reach third. Smith snagged a line drive at the pitcher's mound to retire the side. In the bottom of the second the Astros continued their scoring onslaught by tacking on five more runs. Catcher Tommy Talbot and outfielder Ian Pellersels led off with back-to-back doubles and promptly scored on a triple by outfielder Alex Mirabal. Mirabal was driven home on a double by Smith who was then plated when Vargas added his second single of the night.

The third inning saw some fine defensive play from the Astros. With runners on first and second, Andy Smith made a diving stab of a line drive, then tagged the runner headed to third. The runner on first was headed to second and forgot to tag up at first. Smith then sprinted to first and barely missed completing the unassisted triple play as the runner just beat him back to the bag. The third out of the inning was recorded as Smith threw out a runner headed to third, Caleb Gomez making the catch to end the inning. The boys could not muster up any offense in the bottom of the stanza and the score remained at 10-1.

In the fourth inning the Hurricanes added 2 runs to make it 10-3. The Astos added another double play in the inning as Smith and Mcintrye combined to do so. The third out came on a throw from Smith to Gomez at third to end the inning.

The Astros weren't done as they came up to bat in the fourth inning. Talbot led off with a home run and was followed by back-to-back singles from Kruse and Mirabal. Smith then cleared the bases with a 2-run triple. Vargas drove home Smith on a groundout to the pitcher. Mcintyre finished the game with a home run to center field.

The final tally was 15-1, Astros. The 'Stros continue to play stellar defense and are getting better and better at the dish with each passing game. They will take on the Tiger Cubs on Thursday night at 6:00 p.m. on FIELD # 11...............Shawn Smith
