Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Wednesday, May 6, 2015

Sweep!

Fresno 7, El Paso 3

W- Brett Oberholtzer (1-1)
L- Chris Smith (0-1)
S- Alex White (1)

Fresno home runs: Jon Singleton 2 (7; 2-run in 2nd, solo in 4th)

The Grizzlies got on the board in this series behind a power show from Jon Singleton and a fine start from Brett Oberholtzer.

Singleton's first home run, the 2-run shot in the 2nd, was a no-doubter; spectators noted that Rymer Liriano, El Paso's right fielder, didn't even bother moving. Later on in the 2nd, Joe Sclafani added an RBI single. Singleton led off the 4th with his 2nd home run of the game, a solo shot that time. In the 5th, Alex Presley hit a 2-run single, and Singleton struck once more, blooping in an RBI single to score Presley.

Obie was absolutely dominant in his 2nd rehab start as he allowed 4 hits and struck out 9 over 5.1 shutout frames. Alex White pitched the final 3.2 innings; Cody Decker spoiled the shutout when he hit a 3-run homer off of Alex in the 7th. He allowed 3 other hits, walked 3, and struck out 1.

The Grizz will look to split the series tonight at Luis Cruz faces Robbie Erlin. First pitch is at 7:05 Pacific.

Corpus Christi 7, Midland 2

W- Mike Hauschild (3-1)
L- Chris Jensen (3-2)

CC home runs: Jon Kemmer (2, solo in 2nd), Chan-Jong Moon (1 (2 season), solo in 5th)

The Hooks fell behind right off the bat as Chad Oberacker led off the game with a homer, but Mike Hauschild righted the ship and kept the Hounds in check.

Oberacker's homer was the only run Hauschild allowed in his 6 innings; he allowed 5 singles, walked 3, and struck out 3. Juan Minaya was activated from the disabled list and was assigned to the Hooks. He came out in the 7th for his season debut and allowed a run on 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1. Travis Ballew pitched a 1-2-3 8th, and Jandel Gustave struck out 1 in a 1-2-3 9th.

Jon Kemmer put the Hooks on the board in the 2nd with his 2nd home run in as many nights. Corpus took the lead in the 3rd and never looked back; their 2 runs in the frame came on a Conrad Gregor RBI single and a Brandon Meredith RBI double. Chan-Jong Moon, who doubled to lead off the 3rd, led off the 5th with his 1st home run at the AA level and 2nd of the season. Kemmer scored on an error in the 7th, and with the bases loaded, Moon got his 4th hit of the evening when he poked a 2-run single through the right side of the infield. Moon also stole his 1st base at AA; he now has 6 steals on the season. Roberto Peña (BB, R). Conrad Gregor (2B, RBI, 2 BB, R), and Jon Kemmer (solo HR, 2 R) all finished with 2 hits apiece.

The Hooks look to clinch a series win tonight at 7:05. Lance McCullers will be on the mound for Corpus; he'll take on Nate Long.

Lancaster 18, Stockton 4

W- Edison Frias (3-2)
L- Lou Trivino (2-1)

Lancaster home runs: A.J. Reed 3 (8; 3-run in 1st, grand slam in 4th, solo in 9th)

Well, that's one way to snap a 6-game losing streak... Mr. Golden Spikes struck terror into the hearts of Stockton's pitchers as he homered off of 3 of the 4 Ports hurlers who appeared and ultimately finished a 2-run homer shy of a home run cycle.

Everyone in the Lancaster lineup scored a run; the JetHawks scored in 7 out of 9 innings. Everyone had a hit except for Marc Wik, who walked twice and scored twice despite finishing 0-3. Reed opened up the scoring with his 3-run homer in the 1st. Brett Phillips drew 3 walks, scored 3 runs (for the game), and hit an RBI single in the 2nd. Before Reed's salami in the 4th, Jack Mayfield hit a 2-run single. Mayfield struck again when he hit a bloop RBI single in the 5th. Reed drew a walk to lead off the 6th and would eventually score on a Ronnie Mitchell double. Mitchell scored himself on a double from Brian Holberton. In the 7th, Reed grounded into a force out that scored Phillips. Jose Fernandez followed by extending his hitting streak to 15 games with an RBI single. Mitchell hit another RBI double that brought home Reed, and Holberton added an RBI groundout. A.J. Reed capped off his outstanding night with a 1-out solo homer in the 9th inning. He and Mayfield had 3 hits each, while Mitchell, Holberton, and J.D. Davis finished with 2-hit nights.

Edison Frias was the beneficiary of some ample run support; he went 5.2 innings and allowed 4 runs on 6 hits (2-run homer), walked 3, and struck out 4. Albert Minnis was the first man out of the bullpen; he pitched 2.1 scoreless, allowing a hit and striking out 3. Frederick Tiburcio worked around a walk to throw a scoreless 9th inning.

The JetHawks look to split the series as Brian Holmes faces Dylan Covey at 7:10 Pacific.

Quad Cities 4, Kane County 1

W- Reymin Guduan (2-0)
L- Jared Miller (2-2)
S- Eric Peterson (3)

QC home runs: None.

Make it 8 straight victories for the River Bandits. The Cougars managed to make it a 1-run game late, but some timely hitting in the 9th sealed the deal for Quad Cities. They have allowed a grand total of 8 runs during this 8-game winning streak. Now, this could be an insane theory, but when you hold your opponent to 1 run per game, there's a good chance that you'll win those games.

Alfredo Gonzalez put QC on the board first with an RBI double in the 4th inning. The next River Bandits run came in the 8th, when Thomas Lindauer scored on a wild pitch. The Banditos scored a pair in the 9th, which gave them some much-needed separation from Kane County after they had made it a 1-run game in the bottom of the 8th. Ryan Bottger hit an RBI single with the bases loaded, and Lindauer added a little more insurance with a sac fly. In addition to his RBI double, Fredo also stole his 2nd base of the season.

Josh James went 3.2 innings and allowed 4 hits, walked 3, and struck out 3. Reymin Guduan retired all 4 Cougars he faced, striking out 1. The shutout bid was spoiled in the 8th off of Brock Dykxhoorn, who nonetheless had a good 3-inning stint; he allowed 3 hits, walked 1, and struck out 2. Eric Peterson worked around a walk to close out the game; he struck out 2.

The River Bandits head home to begin a 3-game set with Wisconsin. In the opener, Chris Lee will face off against Cy Sneed at 7.
