Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Friday, May 29, 2015

History was made in Little Rock last night!

Oklahoma City 2, Fresno 1

W- David Huff (2-0)
L- Jordan Jankowski (3-1)

Fresno home runs: Matt Dominguez (3, solo in 8th)

The Redhawks... wait, what? They're not the Redhawks anymore? And they're not the Astros' AAA affiliate either? Oh.... alright then.

The Grizzlies were held to just 2 hits, one of which was a solo homer by Matty D(ominguez) that tied the game at 1, and was their only run of the evening. The other Fresno hit was a single that belonged to Robbie Grossman.

Tommy Shirley kicked things off with 6 shutout innings. He allowed 3 hits, walked 3, and struck out 4. Samuel Deduno made his first rehab appearance as he came on for the 7th inning. Deduno was not very sharp as just 13 of his 35 pitches went for strikes. He allowed a run on a bases-loaded walk and overall, he issued 4 walks (1 intentional) and struck out 2. Jordan Jankowski pitched a scoreless 8th, but allowed the winning run with 1 out in the 9th. He allowed 2 hits, issued an intentional walk, and struck out 2 in 1.1 innings.

In game 2, Dan Straily faces Deck McGuire at 7:05.

Corpus Christi 4, Arkansas 0 in 5.5 innings

W- Chris Devenski (6-0)
L- Alan Busenitz (1-5)

CC home runs: None.

This game was called with 1 out in the bottom of the 6th due to rain.

Chris Devenski spun his 2nd career no-no. The other no-hitter he threw occurred on September 1, 2012, when he was with Lexington. Devo walked 1 and struck out 16 against Rome that night as the Legends won 10-0. This was the first no-hitter in Hooks history. In addition, this was also the 2nd no-hitter involving Josh Hader, who collaborated with J.D. Osborne and Dan Minor to throw a no-no for Lancaster on May 13, 2014.

In this game, Devenski walked 1 and struck out 4 over 5 shutout innings. Hader tagged in and got 1 out in the 6th, walking 1. That's when the rain arrived.

Tony Kemp led off the game with a single. He then proceeded to steal 2nd (13), advanced to 3rd on a sac bunt, and scored the first run of the evening on an Andrew Aplin groundout. Kemp ripped an RBI double in the 3rd after Leo Heras singled, stole 2nd (9), and advanced to 3rd on the errant throw down to 2nd base. In the 6th, Conrad Gregor added an RBI single, and Aplin scored on a double play. Kemp and Heras both finished with 2 hits.

In game 2 of this series, Brian Holmes will face Albert Suarez. First pitch is at 7:10, weather permitting.

Lancaster 4, Stockton 3 in 11 innings

W- Tyler Brunnemann (2-0)
L- Brendan McCurry (1-2)

Lancaster home runs: Brett Phillips (8, led off game), Chase McDonald (7, 2-run in 2nd), Ronnie Mitchell (4, solo in 11th)

The JetHawks got the series win as they held the Ports to 4 hits, although the did issue 9 walks.

All 4 Lancaster runs came off of home runs. Brett Phillips fired the first shot by leading off with a homer. One inning later, Chase McDonald went deep to put the JetHawks up 3-0. The Ports got 2 in the 5th and tied it at 3 with a run in the 9th, and that's where the game was entering the 11th. Ronnie Mitchell led off the inning, and he put the JetHawks back on top with his 4th homer of the year. Brett Phillips, James Ramsay, and Jack Mayfield all had 2 hits; Ramsay extended his hitting streak to 17 games, which ties Jose Fernandez's 17-game streak that occurred between April 15 and May 8.

Troy Scribner allowed just 1 hit over 4 shutout innings, but he walked 5 and only struck out 1. Zach Morton pitched 2 innings and allowed 2 runs on a wild pitch and a groundout, a double, and walked 1. Reymin Guduan walked 2 and fanned 4 over 2 scoreless. The Ports tied the game on an RBI single off of Frederick Tiburcio in the 9th. Tiburcio walked 1 and struck out 2 in the inning. Tyler Brunnemann struck out the side in order in the 10th and worked around a hit to finish off the game in the 11th. He struck out Franklin Barreto for the final out.

The JetHawks will now head to High Desert. They have not announced a starter for this game yet. Whoever he is, he will face Richelson Peña at 6:35 Pacific.

Josh James allowed 3 runs on 6 hits, walked 1, and struck out 2 in 5.1 innings. Christian Powell, making his season debut, threw 1.2 scoreless, walking 1 and striking out 2 in the process. Ryan Thompson worked around a hit to throw a scoreless 8th.
