Astros Minor League Recap: April 25, 2013

Lots and Lots of strikeouts....and not all good.

Oklahoma City Goes into Extras but Falls in the 15th

Jonathan Villar was the hero of the night twice as he picked up a single in the 9th and 13th and each time drove in the runs to tie the game in order to keep the game going. The pitching was very similar to the Houston situation in that the starter didn't last long and ran through a plethora of relievers, seven to be exact. This was also a game with a source of sadness, Jarred Cosart's great start to the season ended with a rather poor start. They also got to face off against Matt Downs.

  • Jarred Cosart-4 1/3 IP, 5 H, 6 R, 5 ER, 4 BB, 2 SO, 1 HR, 8/3 GO/AO, 88/49 P/S

Heidenreich's Struggles Continue in 6-0 Loss

It wasn't just Matt Heidenreich, it was Ruben Alaniz as well. Alaniz's overall numbers weren't bad with just one unearned run surrendered, but the three walks, three hits, and just three and two-thirds pitched isn't good. Heidenreich had worse overall numbers with five runs allowed, but his three strikeouts and just one walk are a bit better.

  • Ruben Alaniz-3 2/3 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 2 SO, 3/4 GO/AO, 68/39 P/S
  • Jorge De Leon-1 1/3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 SO
  • Matt Heidenreich-2 1/3 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 3 SO, 1 HR, 4/0 GO/AO, 60/36 P/S
  • Andrew Robinson-2/3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 SO
  • George Springer CF-0-4, 2 SO
  • Carlos Perez DH-2-4, SO
  • Jonathan Meyer 3B-1-4, SB, 2 E
  • Rene Garcia C-2-3, BB, SO

Nash Smash Not Enough

Telvin Nash launched his first home run of the season, and it won't be his last. Although, it wasn't enough to get the JetHawks a win. Lancaster even made a late push with a four run ninth inning to make it interesting, but they fell one run shy of tying the game. Tyler Heineman made his return from the DL and did what he does best, make contact. He went 4-4 with a double to bring his batting average up to .300.

  • Aaron West-3 1/3 IP, 9 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 0 BB, 2 SO, 5/1 GO/AO, 50/32 P/S
  • Jonas Dufek-2/3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 2 SO
  • Theron Geith-1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 SO

  • Thomas Shirley-1 1/3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 SO
  • Delino DeShields DH-1-4, BB, 3 SO
  • Nolan Fontana SS-3-4, 2B, BB

  • Preston Tucker RF-1-5, OF Assist
  • Telvin Nash 1B-1-5, HR, SO
  • Tyler Heineman C-4-4, 2B

QC Swings and Misses in 6-2 Loss

Wasn't a good night for QC, the offense racked up 13 total strikeouts and unfortunately, Carlos Correa was responsible for four of them. They were facing Roberto Osuna, who is ranked as the Blue Jays #2 prospect by He has some nice stuff, but still it's not fun to see from Correa.

  • Jordan Jankowski-5 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 SO, 1 HR, 5/4 GO/AO
  • Brian Holmes-2 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 2 SO, 1 HR, 0/1 GO/AO

  • Austin Elkins 2B-1-4, 2B, SB
