Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Saturday, May 30, 2015

Welcome to the California League, D.J. Fisher!

Also, Happy Dominican Summer League Opening Day!

Fresno 2, Oklahoma City 1

W- Dan Straily (4-3)
L- Deck McGuire (1-1)
S- Kevin Chapman (4)

Fresno home runs: Matt Duffy (5, 2-run in 3rd)

The Grizzlies took game 2 of the Redhawks Reunion behind a stellar mound performance.

Dan Straily looks like he's rounding into form as he spun his best start of the season. He allowed a run on 3 hits and struck out 10 over 6 innings. Jason Stoffel and Kevin Chapman locked it down and secured the win for him. Stoffel walked 1 and struck out 1 over 2 scoreless, and Chapman worked around a hit to get the save, striking out 2.

Matt Duffy put the Grizz in the lead with a 2-run homer in the 3rd, his 5th blast of the year. That home run turned out to be the game-winning hit. Jon Singleton finished 2-4 with a double.

Alex White gets the start in game 3 of this series. He'll face Scott Baker at 2:05.

Arkansas 4, Corpus Christi 1

W- Albert Suarez (5-3)
L- Brian Holmes (1-1, 3-2 season)
S- Danny Reynolds (2)

CC home runs: None.

The Hooks dropped a rather uneventful game and lost their starting 2B after a takeout slide. Tony Kemp had to be carried off the field in the 6th after Travelers 1B Wade Hinkle slid high into 2nd base and took him out. That incident cleared the bases, as the Hooks took great umbrage to that play. No word on Kemp's condition. Hope we don't have to hear about a serious injury.

Roberto Peña singled in the 8th and on the ensuing error, Leo Heras scored. Teoscar Hernandez went 1-3 with 2 steals (10).

Brian Holmes went 4.2 innings and allowed a run on 5 hits, walked 2, and struck out 4. Chris Cotton was the first man out; he allowed a run on 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1. Juan Minaya allowed a run on 2 hits and walked 1 in the 7th, and Jandel Gustave allowed a run on a sac fly, a single, and walked 2 in the 8th.

Mike Hauschild takes on Mike Brady in the series finale. First pitch is at 2:10.

Lancaster 16, High Desert 3

W- Adrian Houser (1-2)
L- Richelson Peña (2-4)

Lancaster home runs: D.J. Fisher 3 (3, 9 season; solo in 1st, grand slam in 2nd, grand slam in 3rd)


In his first game in the California League, D.J. Fisher made history. He homered in his first 3 at-bats, the last two were grand slams. He cleared the bases with a double in the 7th and broke the league's single-game record for RBI, which stood for 61 years. Those were his 4 hits on the night.

J.D. Davis finished 2-6 with a 2-run single in the 5th. Brett Phillips went 3-5 with a double, 3 runs scored, and drew a bases-loaded walk in the 2nd. One batter later, Fisher hit his first slam. Later in the inning, Jack Mayfield added an RBI double. Mayfield finished 3-5 as well. Marc Wik was 1-2 with 3 walks and 4 runs scored, and James Ramsay extended his hitting streak to 18 games as he went 4-5 with 3 runs scored. The top three (Phillips, Fisher, and Davis) and the bottom three (Alfredo Gonzalez, Ramsay, and Wik) in the order scored all 16 JetHawks runs; Davis (3rd) scored 1, and Alfredo Gonzalez (7th) scored twice.

Adrian Houser was perfect through 5.2 innings. He ultimately allowed 2 runs (on a double) on 4 hits and struck out 7. Keegan Yuhl allowed an unearned run on 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1 in 1.1 innings. Albert Minnis finished with 1.2 scoreless, allowing 2 hits and striking out 1.

Edison Frias will take on Luis Parra in game 2 of this series. First pitch is at 1:05 Pacific.

Quad Cities 1, Burlington 0

W- Kevin Comer (5-1)
L- Justin Anderson (3-3)
S- Francis Martes (1)

QC home runs: None.

Kevin Comer and Francis Martes were both fantastic and 1 run turned out to be enough to get them the win.

Bobby Boyd's RBI single in the 6th turned out to be the only run of the game. Kristian Trompiz and Jason Martin had 2 hits apiece.

Comer allowed 4 hits, walked 1, and struck out 4 over 5 shutout innings. Martes tagged in and struck out 2 over 4 perfect innings to finish it off.

In game 3 of this series, Brandon McNitt will take on Mike Bolaski. First pitch is at 2.

DSL Astros Blue 7, DSL Athletics 3

W- Joel Belboder (1-0)
L- David Montilla (0-1)

Blue home runs: None.

The Blue team only had 4 hits, but they all drove in runs. The A's committed 6 errors, but only one

Orlando Marquez drew a 2-out walk in the 6th, stole 2nd, and scored the Blue team's first run of the season on an error. Cristopher Luciano, who reached on the error, made it to 2nd, and a wild pitch allowed him to advance to 3rd.

They put up 5 in the 7th with their 4 hits. Jose Benjamin drew a walk to lead off the inning, advanced to 2nd on a sac bunt, and to 3rd on an error that allowed Wilson Amador to reach. Andy Piñeda drove him in with a single. Reiny Beltre put the Blue team in front with a 2-run double, and Angel De Leon brought him home with a triple. Marquez followed with an RBI single. Ozziel Sanchez-Galan walked to lead off the 8th, advanced to 2nd when Amador drew a walk, moved over to 3rd on a force out, and finally, he scored when the pickoff throw to 3rd went astray. In addition to his RBI single, Andy Piñeda stole 3 bases.

Diogenes Almengo pitched 4.2 innings and allowed 2 unearned runs on 4 hits, walked 1, and struck out 6. Joel Belboder, who drew a walk-off walk (for real) last season with the Orange team, pitched 3.1 innings and allowed a run on 2 hits, walked 2, and struck out 2. Edwin Villarroel walked 1 and struck out 1 in a scoreless 9th.

Sunday is an off day in the complex leagues. The Blue team and the A's will play again at the Astros complex on Monday.

DSL Astros Orange and DSL Nationals was postponed

Due to rain. These two teams will play again on Monday, so they'll most likely have a doubleheader then.
