Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Saturday, May 2, 2015

Tacoma 5, Fresno 1

W- Sam Gaviglio (2-2)
L- Brady Rodgers (1-2)

Fresno home runs: Matt Duffy (2, solo in 2nd)

The Grizz dropped this series as the Rainiers have silenced their bats, holding them to just 4 runs through 3 games. This loss is their 6th straight away from Chukchansi Park.

Matt Duffy's homer to lead off the 2nd inning was the only Fresno run, and was one of just 4 hits. Domingo Santana hit a double in 2 at-bats and drew a walk.

Brady Rodgers went 6 innings and allowed 5 runs on 7 hits (2 homers hit by Stefen Romero), walked 2, and struck out 7. Richard Rodriguez struck out 1 in a 1-2-3 7th, and James Hoyt worked around a hit to throw a scoreless 8th.

The Grizzlies will try to avoid the sweep at 1:35 Pacific. They have yet to announce a starter for this game.

Frisco 2, Corpus Christi 0

W- Alec Asher (1-2)
L- Lance McCullers (1-1)
S- Josh McElwee (3)

CC home runs: None.

The Hooks held the Roughriders to just 2 hits, but they still ended up with the loss. Baseball.

One mistake really can decide the outcome, and in no sport is this more obvious than in baseball. One pitch that Lance McCullers would absolutely love to have back... sunk him in this game. He allowed a 2-run homer to Royce Bolinger in the 2nd, which turned out to be the difference. McCullers pitched 6 innings and allowed just one other hit (a single before the homer), walked 2, and struck out 7. The 2-run home run represented the first earned runs that Lance has surrendered this season.

Angel Báez was the first man out of the bullpen; he walked 1 and struck out 2 over 2 scoreless, and Travis Ballew struck out 2 in a 1-2-3 9th.

Corpus had 6 singles on offense, 2 of which were hit by Conrad Gregor. Despite the power outage, the Hooks still threatened as they put 2 runners on in the bottom of the 9th, but sadly, Teoscar Hernandez lined out to end the game.

The Hooks are looking to get on the board in this series as Kyle Westwood takes the hill. He'll face Andrew Faulkner at 2:05.

Modesto 8, Lancaster 6

W- Rayan Gonzalez (1-1)
L- Albert Minnis (0-1)

Lancaster home runs: None.

Ugh. The JetHawks bullpen suffered a horrible meltdown as they gave up 6 in the bottom of the 9th and walked off with a loss. Ugh.

A.J. Reed opened up the scoring with an RBI groundout in the 1st. Jose Fernandez extended his hitting streak to 12 games with an RBI single in the 4th. After the Nuts tied the game in the bottom half of the 4th, the JetHawks quickly re-took control with 2 in the 5th coming on a J.D. Davis single. They got some insurance in the 9th on an RBI single by Brett Phillips and an RBI double by Jack Mayfield.... but in the California League, no lead is truly safe, and the JetHawks found that out in a painful fashion.

Michael Feliz went 5 innings and allowed 2 runs on 6 hits, walked 2, and struck out 3. Zach Morton tagged in and threw 3 scoreless. He came out for the 9th, and that's when the trouble began. Wilfredo Rodriguez tagged him for a 2-run homer. Albert Minnis came in, but only got 1 out (via strikeout) and allowed 3 runs (2 inherited runners charged to him) on 2 hits. Gonzalo Sañudo got the 2nd out of the 9th, but he was unable to extract the JetHawks from this perilous situation, allowing the game-winning 3-run homer to Jordan Patterson.

The JetHawks will look to avoid the sweep this afternoon. Troy Scribner gets the start at 1:05 Pacific.

Quad Cities 5, Wisconsin 2

W- Reymin Guduan (1-0)
L- Zach Hirsch (1-3)
S- Eric Peterson (1)

QC home runs: None.

The best in the Midwest notched their 4th consecutive victory as they got the jump on the Timber Rattlers.

Nick Tanielu finished 2-4 with 2 doubles; the first one came in the 1st and drove in the first 2 runs of the day. He later scored on a single from Alex Hernandez. After Mott Hyde hit his 2nd double of the game in the 3rd, Tanielu traded places with him by cracking another double. And, in the 7th, Alfredo Gonzalez added an RBI single. Hyde finished 3-3 with 2 doubles and 2 runs scored; both runs came off of Tanielu's doubles.

Kevin Comer went 4.2 innings and allowed 2 runs on 5 hits, walked 2, and struck out 5. Reymin Guduan got the win in his season debut as he allowed 2 hits, and walked 1 while striking out 3 over 2 scoreless. Eric Peterson got the 7-out save, allowing 4 hits, walking 1, and striking out 1.

The River Bandits are looking for the sweep. Joe Musgrove will take on Kodi Medeiros at 1:05.
