Recap for ST4: Astros v. Braves

Once again, a travel day for me means that I have a ton of stuff to go over, and since most of you already know what happened (and I'm just reading accounts of yesterday's news), we'll do the short version for the recap of yesterday's 9-4 loss to the Braves:

Worth noting:

-The Non-Roster Invitees had a rough day, giving up seven earned runs in four innings. Majewski threw a 0.2IP, 3H/2ER, 0K:1BB line; Corcoran: 1.1IP, 4H/3ER, 1K; Banks: 2IP, 5H/2ER, 1BB.

-Astros pitching only struck out two Braves - one by Corcoran and the other by Evan Englebrook.

-Tommy Manzella made his first error of the Spring, a fielding error leading to an unearned run.

-J.R. Towles picked off Matt Diaz at 3rd base.

Positional Battles

Maysonet: 1x2
Shelton: 1x2
Johnson: 0x3, 2K

Romero: 1x1
Bourgeois: 0x2
Yordany: 0x1

Man of the Match

Lance Berkman! 2x3, two doubles, an RBI and a run scored

Goat of the Game

There are too many to choose from of the non-roster guys, so we'll give it to Chris Johnson. But despite his 0x3, 2K day, he's still hitting .400 for the Spring.
