Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Sunday, May 11, 2014


Colorado Springs 3, Oklahoma City 2

W- Tyler Matzek (2-2)
L- Mike Foltynewicz (3-2)
S- Brooks Brown (3)

OKC home runs: Robbie Grossman (2, solo in 1st; 4 season)

Both teams put up 1's in each of their scoring innings.... the Sky Sox had one more 1 than the RedHawks.

Mike Foltynewicz got the loss, but he pitched decently. He went 6 innings and allowed 2 runs on 4 hits, walked 3, and struck out 5. Raúl Valdés was the first man out and struck out 2 in a 1-2-3 7th. Kevin Chapman was the next man up; he allowed an unearned run on a double and walked 1 in the 8th. And finally, Josh Fields struck out 1 in a 1-2-3 9th. 

Robbie Grossman opened the scoring by taking Tyler Matzek deep to begin the 1st. After CS scored 1 in the top of the 8th to extend their lead to 2, Jon Singleton added an RBI double in the bottom of the 8th to get OKC back to within 1. Those 2 hits were OKC's only extra-base hits of the day. The RedHawks stranded multiple baserunners in the 1st, the 5th, and couldn't capitalize on a bases-loaded, 1-out situation in the 7th. 

Game 3 of this series has Brett Oberholtzer (no AAA record; 0-6, 5.68 w/Houston) making his return to OKC. He will face Christian Bergman (3-1, 4.06) at 7:05.

Frisco 7, Corpus Christi 5

W- Ryan Bores (1-0)
L- Brady Rodgers (1-4)

CC home runs: None.

The Hooks were knocked back to .500 as the Roughriders scored 3 in the bottom of the 8th to erase Corpus Christi's 5-4 lead. It seemed to be one of those games where whatever the Hooks did on offense, Frisco had an answer.

It got rather heated in that frame, as CC manager Keith Bodie was tossed by 3B umpire Matt Czajak. I don't know what transpired leading up to the ejection (wasn't listening to the game), but the play-by-play log of the game says there was a stolen base for Frisco. I assume Bodie thought the stealer, Trever Adams, was out.

David Rollins, who was just activated from the DL, started off by fanning 2 in 2 perfect innings. Brady Rodgers, the scheduled starter, went 5 innings and allowed 7 runs (5 earned; 2 inherited runners charged to him) on 11 hits (3 doubles and 8 singles), walked 1, and struck out 1. Andrew Robinson technically threw a scoreless 8th inning. However, he allowed both of the runners he inherited from Rodgers to score on a sac fly and a triple. He struck out 1.

Corpus kicked it off with a pair in the 2nd, as Matt Duffy hit a pop-fly RBI single to begin the scoring. He'd come around to score himself when Preston Tucker doubled. Nolan Fontana added a 2-run double in the 7th, and Chris Epps hit an RBI single in the top of the 8th to give the Hooks a 5-4 lead at that point. Delino DeShields went 2-4 with 2 runs scored; he heralded his return from the DL with 3 straight 2-hit games against the team that put him on the shelf for almost a month. DeShields was joined by Duffy, Tucker and Joe Sclafani in the 2-hit club. 

The Hooks will be in San Antonio for the 2nd leg of their roadtrip. Mike Hauschild (no AA record; 2-1, 4.41 season) will make his AA debut for the Hooks; he'll face Matt Branham (1-1, 4.70) in the first of 4. First pitch is at 7:05.

High Desert 10, Lancaster 1

W- Jochi Ogando (1-1)
L- Chris Devenski (1-5)

Lancaster home runs: None.

The JetHawks were buried by a 5-run 5th inning and were down 10-0 before scoring. 

Chris Devenski went 4.1 innings and allowed 5 runs (4 earned; 2 inherited runners charged to him) on 5 hits (solo homer to D.J. Peterson), walked 1, and struck out 5. Richard Rodriguez was shelled; he only got the 2nd out of the 5th and allowed both of the runners he inherited from Devenski to score, and then allowed a 3-run homer to Peterson. Juan Minaya finally got the JetHawks out of the inning, but he gave up 2 runs in the 6th. He allowed 2 hits, walked 2, and struck out 3. Jamaine Cotton worked around 2 hits to throw a scoreless 7th, striking out 1, and Mitch Lambson struck out 1 in a 1-2-3 8th.

Jordan Scott doubled to lead off the 8th and scored Lancaster's lone run when Carlos Correa grounded into a force out. Tony Kemp has just been in some other dimension at the plate; after going 2-4, he's now on a 6-game hitting streak, and he's posted multiple hits in all 6 of them. 

The JetHawks will have today off, and then they'll welcome the Bakersfield Blaze to The Hangar for 3 on Tuesday.

Quad Cities was off

The River Bandits will begin a 3-game series against Wisconsin tonight at 6:35. Michael Feliz (1-1, 5.52) will face Preston Gainey (1-2, 2.59) in the opener.
