Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Sunday, May 3, 2015

It's been a rough start to the month for Corpus and Lancaster.

Fresno 6, Tacoma 5

W- Jordan Jankowski (2-0)
L- Logan Bawcom (0-1)
S- James Hoyt (4)

Fresno home runs: Domingo Santana 2 (7; solo in 1st, 3-run in 8th), Max Stassi (2, solo in 4th)

The Grizz avoided a sweep as Domingo's 3-run shot in the 8th put them on top 6-4, and despite a Tacoma run in the 9th, that lead would hold up.

Santana's 2 hits were homers; he opened the scoring with a solo homer in the 1st. Max Stassi homered to lead off the 4th inning. Nolan Fontana went 2-3 with a run scored and a steal (5); on that stolen base, which happened in the 6th, Andrew Aplin scored on the errant throw down to 2nd.

Asher Wojciechowski had a bare minimum quality start (6 IP, 3 ER), allowing 7 hits, walking 2, and striking out 4. Jordan Jankowski allowed a run on 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1 in the 7th. Tommy Shirley worked around a hit to throw a scoreless 8th, striking out 1. James Hoyt allowed a run in the 9th but was able to close out the game. He allowed 3 hits and struck out 2.

The Grizzlies head home for the week. Tonight, they begin the first of 4 against El Paso at 7:05 Pacific. Jake Buchanan gets the start.

Frisco 6, Corpus Christi 3

W- Kyle Lotzkar (1-1)
L- Kyle Westwood (1-2)
S- Francisco Mendoza (5)

CC home runs: Tyler White (1, solo in 2nd), Telvin Nash (5, 2-run in 3rd)

The Hooks got out to a nice start as they led 3-0 after 3 innings. Unfortunately, it was all Frisco as they scored 6 unanswered to close out the game.
All 3 Corpus runs came off of those 2 homers you see above. Carlos Correa finished 3-4 with a double and a run scored.

Kyle Westwood's day started out well enough, but the Roughriders tagged him for 4 runs in the 4th inning; 3 of those 4 scored on a homer. Westwood went 5 innings and allowed 3 other hits, walked 2, and struck out 3. Aaron West pitched the final 4 innings; he allowed 2 runs in the 9th, 4 hits, walked 1, and fanned 2.

Corpus looks to avoid the sweep tonight as Mark Appel faces Jake Thompson at 7:05.

Modesto 7, Lancaster 1

W- Johendi Jiminian (1-3)
L- Troy Scribner (1-1)

Lancaster home runs: J.D. Davis (3, solo in 4th)

The JetHawks suffered the sweep in what was just a rough series all around.  In this one, a 5-run 3rd doomed them, and the 'Hawks never really got their bats going.

J.D. Davis's solo shot in the 4th represented the only run. Brett Phillips finished 2-4.

Troy Scribner only lasted 2.1 innings; he allowed 5 unearned runs (1 inherited runner charged to him), a single, walked 1, and struck out 3. Chris Cotton allowed 2 hits and struck out 2 over 2.2 scoreless. Ambiorix De Leon pitched 2 innings and allowed 2 runs on 3 hits (solo homer) and struck out 2. Albert Minnis struck out 2 in a 1-2-3 8th.

Well, on to the next. The JetHawks will begin a 4-game series with Stockton tonight at 7:10. Evan Grills will take on Joel Seddon.

Quad Cities 10, Wisconsin 1

W- Joe Musgrove (4-1)
L- Kodi Medeiros (0-2)

QC home runs: None.

The Bandits swept the Rattlers in dominating fashion, outscoring them 17-4 over the weekend series. They just keep rolling along; this is their 5th straight victory.

6 players in the lineup had 2 hits: the top 5 in the order (Bobby Boyd, Jamie Ritchie, D.J. Fisher, Mott Hyde, and Nick Tanielu) and the #9 hitter, Kristian Trompiz. All of them played a significant part in the River Bandits' romp; Hyde opened the scoring with a bases-loaded walk in the 1st. Tanielu followed with a 2-run single. Then, Alfredo Gonzalez grounded into a force out that brought Hyde home.

The Banditos added 2 more in the 5th, the 6th, and the 9th. Kristian Trompiz hit a 2-run single in the 5th, Hyde hit an RBI double and Gonzalez added an RBI groundout in the 6th, and they got 3 consecutive triples from Trompiz, Boyd, and Ritchie (in that order) in the top of the 9th. Boyd, Ritchie, Fisher, and Hyde scored 2 runs each.

Joe Musgrove continued his dominant start to the season with 5 more shutout innings. He allowed 3 hits and struck out 3. Bryan Radziewski finished things off; he allowed a run on 4 hits, walked 2, and struck out 4 in 4 innings.

The second leg of this roadtrip takes the River Bandits to Kane County for 3 games. They have yet to announce a starter for this game. Whoever it is, he'll take on Markus Solbach at 6:30.
