Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Monday, May 25, 2015

Let's play 2 in Davenport!

Memphis 5, Fresno 1

W- Nick Greenwood (3-1)
L- Alex White (1-3)

Fresno home runs: None.

The Grizzlies dropped the opener of their series with the Redbirds on Memorial Day.

Matty D(uffy) went 3-4 and his RBI single in the 1st was the only Fresno run of the night. Robbie Grossman, who scored on Duffy's single, was 2-4 with a double. Matty D(ominguez) finished 2-3 with a double.

Alex White went 6 innings and allowed 4 runs on 6 hits (solo homer), walked 3, and struck out 1. Jordan Jankowski allowed 2 hits and walked 1 as he got 2 outs in the 7th. Mitch Lambson got the final out of the 7th and pitched the 8th, where he allowed a run on 2 hits and struck out 1. Murilo Gouvea worked around a hit to throw a scoreless 9th, striking out 1.

Asher Wojciechowski gets the start in game 2. He'll take on Tyler Lyons at 7:05 Pacific.

Corpus Christi 8, Midland 7 in 10 innings

W- Jandel Gustave (1-1)
L- Tucker Healy (2-1)

CC home runs: None.

The Rockhounds managed to tie the game late and briefly took the lead in the first extra frame, but the Hooks sent their fans home happy by walking off with the victory.

Corpus got 2 in the 1st on a pair of RBI singles from Conrad Gregor and Brandon Meredith. Midland tied the game with a pair in the 2nd, but the Hooks put up 4 in the 5th as a double steal saw Tony Kemp take home (11), Jon Kemmer ripped an RBI double, Meredith added his 2nd RBI single of the day, and Leo Heras hit an RBI single to push the Hooks' lead to 6-2.

Midland scored 5 unanswered to take a 7-6 lead into the bottom of the 10th. Meredith kicked things off with a walk. He moved to 3rd on a Teoscar Hernandez single. Teoscar then stole 2nd (8), forcing the Hounds to issue a free pass to Heras to load the bases. Chan-Jong Moon and Tony Kemp drilled some balls... right to Midland defenders, so Jio Mier stepped up as the Hooks' last chance, and he came through. Kemp, Meredith, Heras, and Trent Woodward all finished with 2 hits; Kemp and Meredith both scored 2 runs, as did Andrew Aplin, who stole 2 bases (6, 12 season).

Mike Hauschild went 5 innings and allowed 2 runs on 4 hits and struck out 3. Brian Holmes went through 3 innings without a problem, but he ran into some trouble in the 9th. In 3+ innings, Holmes allowed 3 runs (all inherited runners that were charged to him) on 5 hits, walked 4, and struck out 2. Jandel Gustave was unable to extract the Hooks from that jam as he allowed the game-tying grand slam to Bruce Maxwell. Maxwell was charged to Gustave's account; Gustave ultimately went 2 innings and allowed 2 runs on 3 hits (grand slam; 1 run charged to him), walked 2, and struck out 1.

The Hooks hit the road for their tour of Arkansas. Their trip is likely going to be complicated by the god-awful weather we've been having lately. First stop is Springdale, where the Northwest Arkansas Naturals await. Vince Velasquez gets the start in game 1, and he'll face Jon Dziedzic at 7:05. I spelled "Dziedzic" correctly on the first try.

Lancaster 10, Inland Empire 2

W- Joe Musgrove (2-0, 6-1 season)
L- Victor Alcantara (2-4)

Lancaster home runs: Brett Phillips (7, 2-run in 5th)

Joe Musgrove continued his incredible start to the season and the JetHawks backed him up with 5 in the 5th to earn a split in the series.

Musgrove allowed 2 runs (both in the 5th) on 7 hits and struck out 9 over 6 innings of work. He now has 54 strikeouts against 1 walk across both A levels this season. The only other thing that went wrong for him besides the 2-run 5th was that he hit 2 batters. Reymin Guduan struck out 3 over 2 perfect frames, and Frederick Tiburcio extracted himself from a bases-loaded situation in the 9th to finish it off. He allowed 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1.

Brett Phillips, who finished 4-5 and a triple shy of the cycle, hit a 2-run single in the 3rd to open the scoring, and an error on the play allowed a 3rd run to score. Phillips struck again in the 5th as he smacked a 2-run homer. James Ramsay followed with a 2-run double, and another 66ers error allowed a 3rd run to score. Jack Mayfield hit an RBI single in the 7th, and A.J. Reed drove in the final run of the day with an RBI single in the 8th. Reed finished 3-5, while Ramsay, Mayfield, and Marc Wik finished with 2 hits apiece. James Ramsay is currently on a 14-game hitting streak, the 2nd-longest for the JetHawks this season behind Jose Fernandez.

After a day off, the JetHawks hit the road for a couple of 3-game sets. First stop is Stockton beginning on Wednesday.

Game 1: Peoria 8, Quad Cities 6

W- Austin Gomber (4-3)
L- Kevin Comer (4-1)
S- Robby Rowland (9)

QC home runs: Ryan Bottger (2, solo in 5th), Jake Nottingham (8, 2-run in 7th)

The Chiefs scored a touchdown in the top of the 6th to bust the first game wide open. The Bandits fought back, but they just couldn't overcome that big inning.

Ryan Bottger opened up the scoring in the 5th with his 2nd homer of the year. Bottger also drew a bases-loaded walk in the 6th, as did Alex Hernandez. However, the River Bandits could only get a Thomas Lindauer sac fly in the 6th for the add-on. Jake Nottingham finished 4-4, and his 4th hit of game 1 was a 2-run homer, his 8th of the season.

Kevin Comer pitched 5.1 innings and allowed 5 runs (4 earned) on 7 hits (3-run homer), walked 1, and struck out 3. Eric Peterson got the final 5 outs of game 1; he allowed 3 runs on 5 hits (2-run homer) and struck out 2.

Game 2: Peoria 6, Quad Cities 3

W- Jhonny Polanco (1-0)
L- Ryan Thompson (1-1)
S- Kyle Grana (6)

QC home runs: D.J. Fisher (6, 2-run in 5th)

Unfortunately, the Banditos were swept in the twinbill and were forced to settle for a split in the series. Again, a late Chiefs uprising got out of control.

All 3 River Bandits runs were driven in by D.J. Fisher by way of an RBI single in the 3rd and a 2-run homer in the 5th. Jamie Ritchie scored 2 of the 3 runs; Fisher scored the other when he went deep. They had all 3 Quad Cities hits (Fisher 2, Ritchie 1), as well.

Francis Martes, in his 2nd start of the season, went 5 innings and allowed 2 unearned runs on 5 hits, walked 2, and struck out 4. Jordan Mills allowed a hit in a scoreless 6th. Ryan Thompson bore the brunt of the Peoria 7th as he allowed 4 runs (3 earned) on 3 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1.

Akeem Bostick takes the mound as the River Bandits begin a series with Kane County tonight at 7.
