Recapping The Minors: September 14th


After a long five months, all Astros minor affiliates have finished their seasons. After six teams made the playoffs, two have come away champions. Last night the RiverBandits joined the ValleyCats as champions. Here are the notable stat lines from last night’s game.

QC – 4 South Bend – 2

Tony Kemp – 3/4, 1 2B, 1 RBI

Danry Vasquez – 1/3, 1 RBI, 1 BB, 2 K, 1 SB (2)

Rio Ruiz – 1/3, 1 HR (3), 1 RBI, 1 BB, 2 K – Promising second half!

Josh Hader (W) – 7 IP, 3 Hits, 0 ER, 1 BB, 8 K – Big-time!

Mitchell Lambson – 1 IP, 0 Hits, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K

Andrew Walter – 1 IP, 2 Hits, 2 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 HR

No more scheduled pitchers. All minor league seasons over.

It was a pleasure recapping the important statistics on either a daily basis or a weekend recap. Stay with CTH for the rest of the season and the off season as we will be continuing minor league coverage throughout the offseason. You can expect interviews, player profiles, and more! Thanks for continually reading the recaps and commenting throughout the year. I hope to see everyone continuing to stay with CTH as this offseason will likely be filled with several exciting moves and many Astros articles.

Congrats to the Houston Astros front office on two (out of six) championship teams in their minor league system. There is a bright future ahead in Houston!
