Weekend Leftovers from Round Rock

We're going to try this (albeit longer) attempt to bring you all the news and notes from around the Astros farm system, but in friendly, team-centered capsules. First up, all the Round Rock news and notes you can handle:

Tommy Manzella went 2 for 11 over the weekend, lowering his monthly averages to .286/.353/.532. Manzella's defense has been solid if not spectacular this season, as he has only 11 errors in 97 games, but has a range factor of just 4.15.

Yorman Bazardo put up a game score of 70 on Saturday, throwing eight innings of five-hit ball, allowing one earned run and striking out three while walking one. Bazardo did hit one batter but also induced three double plays. The 24-year old also induced double-digit ground balls for the fourth consecutive game.

Yordany Ramirez had his eighth multi-hit game on Sunday, going 3 for 4. His monthly batting average is .324 but his OBP is just a tick higher at .333 since he's only walked once and not been hit by any batters. Ramirez has stolen two bases in five attempts and put down three sacrifice hits while striking out nine in 77 plate appearances.

Not a lot else going on, except Bud Norris had a fine but uninspiring start on Friday, lasting six innings while allowing two earned runs and striking out four. Teammate Chris Johnson hit a home run over the weekend, his third of the month and sixth of the season. Reggie Abercrombie also struck out for the 30th time in July over the weekend.
