Well, the Rockets lost, but the Astros and their affiliates all won! So Tuesday was not a total loss.

Fresno 12, El Paso 2

W- Asher Wojciechowski (2-0)
L- Robbie Erlin (4-3)

Fresno home runs: Domingo Santana 2 (10; 2-run in 1st), solo in 4th), L.J. Hoes (2, solo in 3rd), Carlos Correa (1, 8 season; 2-run in 6th), Matt Dominguez (2, solo in 9th), Robbie Grossman (1, 2-run in 9th)

Pretty fun. 9 of the 12 Grizzlies runs came off of those 6 home runs. Also, here's a video from Alex Nicolas of SB Nation's UTEP blog, Miner Rush.


Majestic. Pretty soon, those balls are going to be deposited into the Astros bullpen....

Oh, sorry, I was daydreaming for a moment there.

Domingo's first homer of the game put the Grizz on the board first in the 1st. L.J. Hoes homered to lead off the 3rd, and later in the inning, Luis Flores ripped a 2-run double. Domingo smacked a solo blast with 2 outs in the 4th. Carlos Correa hit his first AAA homer, a 2-run shot in the 6th. Jon Singleton hit an RBI double in the 8th, and Matty D(ominguez) and Robbie Grossman went deep in the 9th, The top 4 of Grossman, Correa, Hoes, and Santana all had 2 hits, all of them homered, and all of them scored 2 runs. Matt Dominguez finished 5-5 with a double, the solo homer in the 9th, and scored twice. Flores finished 2-5, and Jon Singleton finished 4-5.

Wojo was the beneficiary of ample run support and he wasn't too shabby on the mound himself. He went 5.2 innings and allowed 2 runs on 5 hits, walked 2, and struck out 2. Richard Rodriguez allowed a hit and struck out 4 over 2.1 scoreless. Jason Stoffel struck out 1 in a 1-2-3 9th inning.

The Grizzlies have today off; tomorrow, they'll begin a homestand with the Tennessee teams coming to visit. First up is 4 with Nashville.

Corpus Christi 6, San Antonio 2

W- Vince Velasquez (1-0)
L- Ryan Butler (0-1)

CC home runs: Telvin Nash (7, solo in 8th)

8 in a row for the Hooks.

Vince Velasquez got his first win of the season as he allowed 2 unearned runs, 5 hits, walked 1, and struck out 4 over 5.1 innings of work. Mitch Lambson struck out 2 over 2.2 perfect frames, and Travis Ballew worked around 2 hits and a hit batter to finish off this game.

The Missions got their 2 runs in the top of the 3rd, but the Hooks responded with 4 in the bottom of the inning to take control. Chan-Jong Moon scored the first Corpus run when Jio Mier grounded into a double play. Teoscar Hernandez advanced to 3rd, and he wouldn't have to wait long for company, as Andrew Aplin (who stole his 3rd [9 season] base) and Telvin Nash walked. Jon Kemmer proceeded to bring them all home with a double. Moon hit an RBI single in the 4th, and Telvin drove himself in for the final run of the night with a solo blast in the 8th. Kemmer's 2 hits were both doubles. Moon and Tony Kemp both finished 2-3, and Leo Heras stole 2 bases (8).

Aaron West will start game 3 of this series; he'll face Bryan Rodriguez at 7:05.

Lancaster 8, High Desert 7 in 12 innings

W- Albert Minnis (1-1)
L- Justin Sprenger (1-3)

Lancaster home runs: A.J. Reed (10, solo in 1st), Danry Vásquez (2, solo in 3rd)

With the JetHawks' victory, every Astros affiliate is back above the .500 mark. They tied with 1 in the 9th and walked off with the win in the bottom of the 12th.

Brett Phillips led off the bottom of the 1st with a double and scored the first run of the evening on a J.D. Davis groundout. After the JetHawks got on the board, A.J. Reed extended the lead with a mammoth solo shot, his 10th of the season. James Ramsay hit a sac fly in the 2nd. In the 3rd, Danry led off the inning with his 2nd homer of the year, and after doubling, Reed scored on a wild pitch. Danry struck again with an RBI single in the 4th to give the JetHawks a 6-4 lead.

The Mavs scored 1 apiece in the 5th, the 6th, and the 7th to take the lead. They had a grand opportunity with the bases loaded and nobody out in the bottom of the 7th, but 3 straight outs ended that threat. 2 straight singles and an error loaded the bases yet again in the bottom of the 9th, but this time, Brett Booth came through with a sac fly to tie the game at 7. Reed was stranded at 2nd to end the 11th. After Booth struck out to begin the 12th, Ramsay singled, and then Phillips and Danry walked to load the bases for a third time. J.D. Davis was next up, and he finished it off with a single.

Michael Feliz went 4.2 innings, allowing 5 runs on 5 hits (solo homer), walking 1, and striking out 4. Keegan Yuhl made his California League debut as the first man out of the bullpen. He went 1.2 innings and allowed 2 runs on 4 hits (solo homer), issued an intentional walk, and struck out 3. Chris Cotton came on with the bases loaded and 1 out in the 7th, and he successfully extracted the JetHawks from that situation without allowing any runs. 58% Cotton walked 2 and struck out 4 over 2.1 scoreless innings. Albert Minnis tagged in with 2 outs in the 9th. He issued a walk to load the bases, but got out of the inning by striking out Ronald Guzman. Minnis went 3.1 innings and allowed a hit, walked 2, and struck out 3.

Game 2 will be a late-morning game (well, early afternoon in the Central Time Zone). Joe Musgrove gets the start for this game, which will begin at 11 A.M. Pacific.

Quad Cities 8, Clinton 5

W- Kevin Comer (4-0)
L- Patrick Peterson (4-4)
S- Aaron Greenwood (1)

QC home runs: None.

The River Bandits continue to do what they've been doing to their opposition all season. They are now 16-2 in the month of May. They held an 8-1 lead, but the Lumberkings mounted a late uprising to cut into that lead.

In the 1st, the Banditos got a couple of runs on a couple of sac flies hit by Nick Tanielu and Ryan Bottger. Sean McMullen grounded into a force out that scored D.J. Fisher in the 3rd. OK, every time D.J. Fisher hit a double in this game, he scored. He finished with 3 doubles in 5 at-bats and scored 3 runs. He scored the first run of the game in the 1st... after doubling. He doubled for the 3rd time in the 5th.... and scored on a Tanielu triple.The Bandits busted out for 4 in the 6th thanks to RBI singles from Tanielu and Kristian Trompiz and a 2-run double by Jamie Ritchie. Bottger, Tanielu, Ritchie, and Mott Hyde had 2 hits apiece.

Francis Martes was the third player in the Jarred Cosart deal (the fourth will be drafted in a few weeks). He made his season debut in this game and allowed a run on 2 hits, walked 3, and struck out 5 over 4 innings of work. Kevin Comer tagged in and went 4.2 innings, allowing 4 runs (1 inherited runner charged to him) on 7 hits, walking 2, and striking out 2. Aaron Greenwood also made his 2015 debut with the bases loaded and 2 outs in the 9th. He issued a walk to the first man he faced but was able to close it out by recording his first strikeout of the season.

Akeem Bostick will take the mound tonight. He'll face Lukas Schiraldi at 6:30.
