Former Warrior Pitcher With Generals & Former Warrior Goes To All-Star Game
The second outing for a Victorian pitching for the Generals, not as good as the first.
In a 6-0 loss to the Brazos Valley Bombers in Bryan Wednesday night, Jonathan Jimenez, the former West Warrior, now UHV Jaguar, went five innings, allowing three runs on five hits. Last Wednesday night, Jimenez made his Generals debut and got the win, striking out four and allowing just three hits. I asked Jonathan what he’s working on with the Generals to improve his pitching for the Jaguars. “Being more consistent strike-wise. I’m working on a couple of pitches. My changeup wasn’t there during my college year but I’m working on it during this summer.” The Generals snap the Brazos Valley Bombers nine-game winning streak Thursday night. Jake Miller’s RBI single in the eighth gives the Generals the 4-3 win in Bryan.
Big honors for another former West baseball player.
Noah Rodriguez, selected to the first annual Coastal Bend Coaches Association All-Star team. Rodriguez, a first team All-District pick, batted .282 this season with 23 rbi’s, 12 stolen bases. Noah has signed with Our Lady Of The Lake. He told me as far as he knew he would play the field in this game, but he may be asked to pitch. I asked Rodriguez how big this honor is for him. “It’s amazing. I never thought I’d get to play representing West again. Lo and behold I get to go play again.”
Other area players picked for the Coastal Bend Coaches Association Baseball All-Star game include Landon Simpson of East, Cuero’s Cole Payne and Payton Walk, Logan Moya of Goliad and Raymond Martinez of Bloomington. The game is Sunday afternoon at 5:00 in Sinton.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) – Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa says nothing abnormal showed up during an MRI on Thursday, a day after he came out of a game early because of discomfort in his right side.
Correa was examined in Houston before joining the team before a game at the Texas Rangers. The shortstop wasn’t in the lineup Thursday night, and manager A.J. Hinch said the Astros would be conservative with him.
Hinch said the team would know more when Correa swings a bat again in the next day or so.
“Just happy the first diagnosis is that it’s nothing serious, and that hopefully we’ll get him back soon,” Hinch said.
Correa left Wednesday’s 7-5 win over Seattle before the eighth inning. He experienced discomfort during a swing while batting in the seventh.
