Astros Minor League Recap: May 19, 2013

Scott Halleran

George Springer stole the show last night and Lancaster combined for four home runs

He's a Peacock...You gotta let him fly on this one

Brad Peacock made his third start of the season for the RedHawks yesterday and displayed once again why he was once a top prospect and why he was made available in a trade. He was effective, don't get me wrong, but he was also what got him sent down in the first place. He gave up just two runs, and only was earned, but he threw 96 pitches to get through five innings. A lot of that had to do with him giving up four walks and striking out five.

Speed Kills and Springer has Speed

If you can't hit the ball out of the park, you might as well just take the rest of the bases you need to get home right? Well that's at least what George Springer seems to think. Despite not registering a single hit, he still maintained to make an impact on the game even if it didn't affect the scoreboard. He didn't cross home plate or drive in any runs, but he was a terror on the bases. He reached base three times, twice on walks, and once on an error. In those three trips to 1B, he walked away with four stolen bases. He's an amazing threat anywhere. Thirteen home runs and fourteen stolen bases. Not many guys around with those capabilities.

Four Banger

The JetHawks launched four home runs, but it wasn't enough for a win. Telvin Nash hit the first in the fourth then Delino DeShields and Tyler Heineman teamed up to add two more in the 6th before Matt Duffy tacked up the last one in the 7th inning. DDJ hasn't been his Lexington v2.0 self this year with a 7/7 stolen base/caught stealing record. This was just his first home run this season, so perhaps this can be the boost in confidence to get him going.

Correa's getting stronger

Since his last DL stint, Carlos Correa has been on an on-base tear. After yesterday's 2-4 performance that included a walk, his OBP is now up to .477 over the last ten days. The best part is that there's only been six strikeouts and five walks over those 44 plate appearances. He hasn't hit for power with only one double to his name in that time, but that will come in due time.

  • Richard Rodriguez-1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 SO, 2/1 GO/AO

  • Austin Elkins 2B-2-2, 2B, 2 BB
