Houser solid again for Astros

BRISTOL, Tenn. — Former Locust Grove pitcher, Adrian Houser, continued his recent run of strong outings Monday night in Appalachian League action.

After three straight stellar starts at home, Houser went five innings and only allowed two runs (both earned) on five hits and three walks in a 6-2 Greeneville victory over Bristol. Houser also struck out six to run his season total to 31 punchouts — which is third among Appalachian League pitchers.

Through six rookie league starts, Houser is now 1-2 and is the league leader in innings pitched. He is also 11th in the league with a 2.97 earned run average.

Houser’s next start will likely come Saturday when the Astros host Kingsport.

In the Arizona League, former Keys standout Chance Ross continues to make the most of his limited playing time.

In five games for the AZL Angels, Ross owns a .353 batting average and .529 slugging percentage. During his last showing Friday against the Dodgers, Ross went 2 for 5 with a walk.
