Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Wednesday, May 13, 2015

Corpus was off, but there was still plenty of fireworks in the system, highlighted by a 10-RBI night from one Jonathan Singleton, a young catcher making some serious noise in the Midwest League, Quad Cities rallying from an early deficit, and some outstanding pitching in Lancaster sandwiched in between.

Let's get to it!

Fresno 17, Albuquerque 6

W- Asher Wojciechowski (1-0)
L- Tyler Matzek (0-1)

Fresno home runs: Jon Singleton 2 (11; grand slam in 2nd, 2-run in 3rd)

Well, this is me shifting into lazy mode, because I don't think I have the words to describe this game. The Grizz took full advantage of 13 walks. At one point, they had 9 runs on just 2 hits and led 12-2 after the 3rd inning. Jon Singleton's 2-run homer in the 3rd may still be in flight as I'm typing this.

Jon Singleton's 11 homers lead the minors; he took over the lead from Preston Tucker. His 10 RBI is also a Fresno franchise record, and his 35 RBI on the season also puts him in the lead in that category; he overtook Tucker, Carlos Correa, and Peter O'Brien (Arizona), who are all tied at 32.


Asher Wojciechowski pitched 5 innings and was taken deep by Matt McBride twice. Both of those home runs were of the 2-run variety, were the only extra-base hits he allowed, and constituted the 4 runs that he allowed. Wojo also allowed 6 singles, walked 2, and struck out 6. Jonas Dufek was the first man out; he allowed 2 runs on 3 hits, walked 2, and struck out 2 in 2 innings. Tommy Shirley struck out 1 in a 1-2-3 8th, and Tyson Perez struck out 2 in a 1-2-3 9th.

In game 3 of this series, Luis Cruz will take on Chris Rusin. First pitch is at 11:05 A.M. Mountain.

Corpus Christi was off

The Hooks are in Frisco, where they'll be starting a 4-game series. Vince Velasquez will take on Andrew Faulkner at 7:05.

Lancaster 2, Visalia 0

W- Edison Frias (4-2)
L- Blayne Weller (1-3)
S- Brian Holmes (1)

Lancaster home runs: None.

The JetHawks got even in the series as Frias and Holmes combined on a 5-hitter.

Well, Frias allowed all 5 hits, but he also shut out the Rawhide in his 5 innings, walking 2 and striking out 6 in the process. Holmes locked it down as he struck out 7 over 4 perfect innings. He's now on a 19-inning scoreless streak and has 45 strikeouts in 30.1 innings this season.

Jose Fernandez drew a walk to lead off the 3rd, advanced to 3rd base on a Danry Vásquez single, and scored the first run of the day on a wild pitch. A.J. Reed drove in the other run with a single in the 5th. Danry finished 3-5 with a stolen base (3). Fernandez, who singled in the 6th inning, also stole a base (4).

In the series finale, Michael Feliz will be on the mound for the JetHawks. He'll take on John Omahen at 7 Pacific.

Quad Cities 15, Beloit 8

W- Reymin Guduan (3-0)
L- Jerad Grundy (0-1)

QC home runs: Jake Nottingham (6, 2-run in 4th)

The Banditos trailed 7-0 after 1.5 innings. They outscored the Snappers 15-1 the rest of the way. Sean McMullen really missed out on the fun...


The Bandits backed up Kevin Comer, who only recorded 2 outs in the game. He allowed 5 runs (3 earned, 2 inherited runners inherited to him) on 4 hits and walked 1. Jose Montero was the first man out, and he allowed 3 runs on 4 hits (solo homer), walked 1, and struck out 1. The next 3 Quad Cities pitchers shut Beloit down. Reymin Guduan allowed 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 5 over 2.2 scoreless. Keegan Yuhl tagged in for 2 scoreless, allowing a hit, walking 1, and striking out 3. The Closer, Ryan Thompson, struck out 2 in a 1-2-3 9th to finish it off.

In the series finale, Chris Lee will take on Kevin Johnson at 7.
