Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Tuesday, May 27, 2014

Omaha 9, Oklahoma City 1

W- Brett Tomko (3-3)
L- Nick Tropeano (2-4)

OKC home runs: None.

The Storm Chasers spoiled ruined Tony DeFrancesco's return to the OKC dugout as they ran off 9 unanswered runs in the middle stages of the game to run away with the series opener. They're gonna have to pay for that...

The only RedHawks run came on a bases-loaded walk from Jon Singleton in the 2nd. Kiké Hernandez's 12-game hitting streak came to an end in this one. Austin Wates and Domingo Santana both went 2-4. Adron Chambers hit a double in 3 at-bats and scored the lone run.

Nick Tropeano went 5 innings and allowed 4 runs (2 earned) on 7 htis and struck out 6. Bobby Doran threw the final 4 innings and allowed 5 runs on 7 hits, walked 2, and struck out 4.

In game 2, Rudy Owens will take on TBA; their game notes from yesterday lists Aaron Brooks as Omaha's starter. First pitch is at 7:05.

Corpus Christi 6, Arkansas 2

W- Kyle Smith (2-2, 6-2 season)
L- Drew Rucinski (3-3)

CC home runs: Matt Duffy (6, solo in 8th)

The Hooks took control of the opener as they ran off 5 in the 6th.

They were shackled by Drew Rucinski for much of the game before the outburst, coupled with Rucinski's wheels falling off, gave them the lead. René Garcia and Telvin Nash reached on singles, and Delino DeShields tied the game with a sac fly. A couple of errors resulted in a couple of runs, Leo Heras hit an RBI single, and Jio Mier grounded into a force out that allowed Matt Duffy to score. Duffy, who finished 2-3, scored himself when he took Nick Maronde deep (6) in the 8th inning. DeShields was 1-3 with a steal (19).

Tommy Shirley pitched 5 innings and allowed a run on 6 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1. Kyle Smith threw the final 4 innings, and the only dent on his line was a solo homer to Jimmy Swift in the 7th. He allowed one other hit and struck out 5.

In the middle game of this series, Brady Rodgers will face Orangel Arenas. First pitch is at 7:10.

Lancaster 7, Lake Elsinore 0

W- Kyle Westwood (3-3)
L- Joe Ross (5-3)

Lancaster home runs: None.

The JetHawks took the opener as their pitchers posted 9 zeros and held Lake Elsinore to 5 hits. They're a game back of the Storm for 1st in the California League South.

Lancaster finally broke it open in the final third of the game, scoring 4 in the 7th and 2 more in the 9th to bust open a 1-0 game.

After Ruben Sosa hit a 1-out triple in the 1st, he scored on a Carlos Correa groundout. Rio Ruiz opened the floodgates in the 7th by scoring on an error. Roberto Peña chipped in with an RBI single. He was picked off, but an error allowed him to escape, and allowed Dan Gulbransen to score. Peña would eventually score on a single from Tony Kemp. Gulbransen scored on another error in the 9th and Sosa, who finished 2-4, brought in the final JetHawks run of the evening with a sac fly.

Kyle Westwood started off with 6 shutout innings, allowing 4 hits and striking out 3. Richard Rodriguez and Juan Minaya took it home; Rodriguez walked 1 and struck out 1 in 2 innings, and Minaya worked around a 2-out single to close it out, striking out 2.

In game 2 of this series, Kent Emanuel will face Zach Eflin. First pitch is at 6:05.

Quad Cities 10, Burlington 9

W- Albert Minnis (1-1)
L- Spencer Trygg (0-1)
S- Frederick Tiburcio (1)

QC home runs: Jon Kemmer (4, solo in 4th), Brian Holberton (4, solo in 5th), Ronnie Mitchell (4, 2-run in 7th)

The River Bandits avoided the sweep in a wild back-and-forth affair that saw them club 3 home runs. They scored in 5 consecutive innings to take an 8-6 lead, but the Bees scored 3 in the 6th to take a 9-8 lead. However, Ronnie Mitchell swatted a 2-run homer in the 7th to put QC in the lead. Albert Minnis and Frederick Tiburcio restored order as they were able to close it out.

James Ramsay walked to open up the game and scored on a triple from Chan-Jong Moon. After Brett Phillips walked, a double steal put up another run as Moon took home (19) while Phillips took 2nd (8). Thomas Lindauer scored on a wild pitch in the 2nd. A Phillips bunt single and an error allowed Moon to score in the 3rd, and Phillips wound up scoring on a double play. Kemmer took Clint Sharp deep in the 4th. Holberton extended his hitting streak to 6 games with his solo blast in the 5th. He finished 2-5 to give him 5 multi-hit games in those 6. Tyler White followed Holberton's homer with a double; he'd score on a passed ball. Mitchell put up the decisive runs with his 2-run shot in the 7th. Moon and Mitchell both finished 3-5; White and Kemmer joined Holberton in the 2-hit club.

Andrew Thurman went 5.1 innings and allowed 8 runs (2 inherited runners charged to him) on 10 hits (3-run homer), walked 3, and struck out 6. Albert Minnis pitched 2.2 innings and allowed a run on 4 hits and struck out 2. Frederick Tiburcio worked around a hit to strike out 2 in the 9th.

QC will now head home to begin a 3-game series with Beloit beginning at 7:00. Chris Lee will take on Bobby Wahl.
