Houser makes season debut

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. — Former Locust Grove pitcher Adrian Houser made his season debut for the Houston Astros organization on Tuesday night in east Tennessee.

The second-round draft pick in the 2011 MLB draft started for the Greeneville Astros in the club's season-opening game, going five innings and only issuing one run on two hits. However, Houser, who issued four walks compared to one strikeout, did suffer the loss in a 4-2 contest.

Houser faced 22 batters and retired 12 via the ground ball.

Houser started his professional career in 2011, compiling a 2-4 record and 4.31 earned run average in 12 games, which were split between the Greeneville Astros and the Astros' Gulf Coast League affiliate.

Houser's next appearance will likely come this weekend when the Astros are at Kingsport.
