Round Rock scored 26 runs last night. Alvarez 0-4; Tucker with 2 home runs.

Who in the world were they playing?
I remember all the good times me 'n Miller enjoyed
Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

Las Vegas. Who are no longer aliens but aviators for some reason.

Urquidy with another fine performance last night - six shutout innings. In four AAA starts has 40 SOs to 7 BBs, a 3.16 era and a i WHIP.

Alvarez with his 23rd HR. He now has 71 RBIs in 56 games; 50 SOs against 49 walks.

Should be. Saw a Round Rock tweet saying one more chance to see him

DH.  Could be his last rehab game.

Only caught the end while driving home, but Altuve had a sun/sky aided triple early to go with a couple of Ks.

The 9th inning was a mess.  Trailing 3-2, DeGoti gets HBP, Altuve walks (booth was saying he took a 2-0 pitch that should have been drilled).  Reyes took a 2-1 pitch that should have been drilled, ended up K'ing.  Tucker K's feebly.  Taylor takes a pitch or 2 down the middle but ends up walking to load the bases, Ferguson who had a couple of triples and a single taps out to the mound on the first pitch.

They left Altuve in to run in the 9th which has to be a good sign.

Thanks, guys.

It was a disappointing result but fun game regardless.  Both of Altuve's strikeouts were looking, IIRC.  There were several other backward K's for his teammates.

Anyone know why Fisher was moved to the inactive list?

I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing AstroTurf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, torture of Bud Selig.

This is a good unanswered question. He hasn’t been playing and I can’t find anything with my lousy search skills.

See that Bielak had a good outing today: 7 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 9 K. He looked good in ST, but has had a rough go in RR. Nice to see him with a good outing.

Joshua Rojas is having a real good year, starting in AA but now in AAA. 26 round pick in 2017.

He's got a Marwin look to him next Spring if he keeps this up.

Urquidy with another good outing last night - 6 Innings, 9 SOs, no runs. For the AAA season an ERA under 3 and a WHIP under 1.
Rojas continues his hot hitting.  2-4. 20 RBIs in 25 AAA games.
Tucked 0-4 with 3 SOs; hitting .235 in the last ten games.

Framer with three innings, two runs and seven Ks, but doesn’t come out for the fourth. I hope all is well.

Went to Dell Diamond last night for the game against Omaha. With the exception of Mayfield, I don't think there's anybody left in Round Rock who will be useful to the big club this year. Specific observations:

1. Framber started, and his control was no better than his last few starts in Houston, and possibly worse. There were at least five pitches where he almost hit right-handed batters in the feet. A couple of them actually went *behind* the batters. He gave up 5 runs in 3.1 or 3.2 innings. He struck out 6 mostly because the Omaha hitters don't know what to do with his curve. He also walked 5. Sound familiar?

2. Tucker was at 1st base, hopefully showcasing his versatility for a trade. Except that he's pretty awkward over there. And this is probably unfair and a function of my preexisting prejudices, but he just seems to exude a teenager's sense of "It's not fair! i should be in Houston!" Jogging here, shuffling there, just lousy body language. He went 0-4, and on a couple of ground ball outs he didn't even make it half-way to 1st before he was thrown out, just shuffling along like Festus or something. If he can be traded for a real pitcher, I'll be ecstatic.

3. Correa made a fine diving grab of a ball up the middle in a drawn-in infield, and threw the guy out from the seat of his pants. His night at the plate was meh, with only one reasonably hard-hit ball that wound up as a fly ball out in RCF. And 4 LOBsters, so he should be able to hit the ground running when he returns to the Astros on Friday.

4. McCormick (CF) made an outstanding diving grab going to his right on the warning track. Almost Marisnickian.

5. This was the first time I've seen Jones (he was in LF). He needs more work, but he could be interesting.

6. Rojas was at DH, and went 2-4. He seems small, but it's hard to argue with the numbers he's putting up: .321/.411/.614 in 47 games and 184 ABs at Round Rock. And after looking up his size, he's not actually that small: 6'1", 195 lbs, according to MiLB. So he could be interesting, too.

7. SuperJack deposited a ball nearly on the walkway behind the berm in LCF.

8. Valdez and Bostick and were painful to watch on the mound. What we once thought was an overflowing garden of pitching now looks much less promising. Scheetz's numbers for the night look better than he did.

9. No sign of Fisher. Where is he?

10. It was a beautiful night at the park. Temperature was 90 or 91, the humidity was down, and it was just downright pleasant. The only downside was missing Baggy in the booth.

Thanks for the report. I haven’t seen Rojas play but I’ve heard pretty positive things from someone who see a lot of games. Sort of Marwin like, is what I was told.

I've seen him play a few times, and he always seems to have quality ABs and plays respectable defense. But he and Mayfield have the same problem: where are you going to put them?

Oh, one more thing that some folks may be interested in: Apollo 11 lids are available in the Round Rock team store. Or at least they were last night.

You are 100% right about Tucker. He has not made many friends.

Capps is very high on Rojas. He looks like he can play.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.
