Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Sunday, May 31, 2015, and Monday, June 1, 2015

DSL Doubleheader!

Sunday: Oklahoma City 4, Fresno 1

W- Scott Baker (4-3)
L- Alex White (1-4)

Fresno home runs: None.

Unfortunately, the Grizz offense couldn't supply any support for Alex White, who had a decent outing on Sunday afternoon.

White had a bare minimum quality start, allowing 6 hits, walking 2, and fanning 3. Murilo Gouvea allowed a run on a double, hit a batter, and struck out 1 in the 7th. Mitch Lambson threw a 1-2-3 8th.

L.J. Hoes hit an RBI groundout in the 9th for the only Fresno run. Domingo Santana finished 2-3 and scored that run.

Monday: Fresno 14, Oklahoma City 1

W- Asher Wojciechowski (4-0)
L- Eric Surkamp (0-2)

Fresno home runs: Nolan Fontana (2, grand slam in 4th), Alex Presley (1, 3-run in 6th)

Well, have yourself a day, Alex Presley. He finished 6-7 and in addition to his homer, added 2 RBI doubles. The first occurred in the 2nd, and the other was the first run-scoring hit in what turned out to be a 9-run 4th inning that pretty much turned the tide in the Grizzlies' favor.

Everyone in the lineup scored a run except for L.J. Hoes, who hit an RBI groundout in the 1st. Everyone in the lineup drew a walk except for Presley; they walked 12 times, compared to 6 strikeouts.

In that 4th inning, the Grizz got an RBI double from Presley and a couple of 2-run doubles from Matt Duffy and Jon Singleton. Nolan Fontana delivered the crushing blow in the form of a grand slam. Presley's 3-run shot in the 6th brought in the final runs of the game. Fontana finished 3-4, walked twice, and scored 4 runs. Presley scored 3 runs and hit 3 doubles. Duffy, Singleton, Robbie Grossman, and Joe Sclafani all had 2-hit games.

Asher Wojciechowski was the beneficiary of this generous run support and he was stellar himself. He went 8 innings and allowed an unearned run on 5 hits, walked 1, and struck out 6. Jonas Dufek threw a 1-2-3 9th.

The Grizzlies are in Colorado Springs to begin a 4-game set with the Sky Sox. Luis Cruz will start game 1; he'll take on Taylor Jungmann at 7:05 Mountain.

Sunday: Corpus Christi 4, Arkansas 2

W- Mike Hauschild (4-1)
L- Austin Adams (0-1)
S- Josh Hader (1)

CC home runs: None.

The Hooks finished their tour of Arkansas 4-2, taking 2 of 3 from the Naturals and Travs. They trailed 2-1 heading into the 5th, but they tied the game in that inning and took the lead with a pair in the 6th.

Chan-Jong Moon led off the game with a double and scored the first run of the afternoon on an Andrew Aplin groundout. Aplin went 0-4, but he drove in 2 on the day; he drew a bases-loaded walk to tie the game at 2 in the 5th. Leo Heras ripped an RBI double to put Corpus ahead, and one batter later, Roberto Peña brought him home with a single. Heras finished 2-4, while Moon led the way in the hits department, going 3-5.

Mike Hauschild allowed 2 runs on 3 hits, walked 3, and struck out 1 over 6 innings of work. Josh Hader, whose last outing was the combined no-hitter, allowed a hit and fanned 3 over 3 scoreless to get the save.

Now, the Arkansas teams will head to Whataburger Field. The Hooks will begin a 3-game set with Northwest Arkansas tonight at 7:05. Vince Velasquez gets the start in game 1; he'll face Miguel Almonte.

Sunday: Lancaster 21, High Desert 6

W- Joe Musgrove (3-0, 7-1 season)
L- Luis Parra (1-4)

Lancaster home runs: James Ramsay (4, solo in 2nd), A.J. Reed (13, 2-run in 4th), Alfredo Gonzalez 2 (2; 2 solo homers in 6th), Chase McDonald 2 (9; 2-run in 4th, 3-run in 6th) D.J. Fisher (4, 10 season; 3-run in 6th), Jack Mayfield (4, solo in 8th)

The JetHawks busted out the heavy artillery on Sunday as they whacked 8 home runs. This game got out of control (in a good way, for obvious reasons) when the JetHawks put up 10 in the 6th. The box score from this game is pretty nuts. Brett Phillips missing out on the party was a bit of a bummer, though. James Ramsay extended his hitting streak to 19 games.



Edison Frias got the start and allowed 4 runs on 7 hits (2 solo homers), walked 1, and struck out 5 in 4 innings. Zach Morton worked around a hit to throw a scoreless 5th. Joe Musgrove tagged in for the final 4 innings and allowed 2 runs on 5 hits (solo homer) and struck out 5. 

Monday: Lancaster 12, High Desert 10

W- Tyler Brunnemann (3-0)
L- Jefri Hernandez (0-1)
S- Reymin Guduan (1)

Lancaster home runs: J.D. Davis (6, 2-run in 8th)

The JetHawks trailed 8-3 after the 3rd inning, but they finished this game on a 9-2 run and picked up their 5th consecutive victory. 7 of those 9 runs were scored in the final 3 innings. High Desert managed to tie the game at 10 in the 8th, but extra innings would not be required as the JetHawks retook the lead with a pair in the 9th.

The JetHawks have outscored the Mavericks 49-19 through the first 3 games of this series. Yes. They've scored 49 runs in 3 games.

Everyone in the lineup had a hit except for Brian Holberton, who drew 2 walks and scored a run. Everyone in the lineup scored a run except for James Ramsay, who went 3-5 with 3 RBI, which extended his hitting streak to 20 games.

Jose Fernandez hit a 2-run single in the 2nd to put Lancaster on the board. Chase McDonald added an RBI single in the 3rd, and in the 4th, the JetHawks got a pair of RBI singles from D.J. Fisher and A.J. Reed. Ramsay hit another RBI single in the 7th.

Business picked up in the 8th as the JetHawks put up 4 in the inning to take a 10-9 lead. After Fisher tripled, J.D. Davis clubbed a 2-run homer. Ramsay added a 2-run single with the bases loaded. Davis added an RBI single to his ledger in the 9th, and Reed brought him home with a double for the final run of the night. Fisher, Reed, Davis, Jack Mayfield, and Fernandez all finished with 2 hits.

Dan Mengden allowed 8 runs on 10 hits (2-run homer), walked 1, and struck out 5 over 4.1 innings. The bullpen was able to restore order to this game, and their efforts bought the offense some time so they could get themselves going, too. Keegan Yuhl went 2.2 innings and allowed 2 runs (1 earned, 1 inherited runner charged to him) on 3 hits, walked 1, and struck out 2. Tyler Brunnemann technically threw a 1-2-3 8th. However, the first out was a sac fly that allowed one of the 2 runners he inherited from Yuhl to score. Reymin Guduan shut the door on a topsy-turvy affair by striking out 2 in a 1-2-3 9th.

The JetHawks will look for the sweep as Bryan Radziewski takes the mound. He'll face David Ledbetter at 7:05 Pacific.

Sunday: Burlington 3, Quad Cities 1

W- Mike Bolaski (3-4)
L- Brandon McNitt (0-2)
S- Garrett Nuss (1)

QC home runs: Ramon Laureano (1, solo in 8th)

The Bees got 3 off of Brandon McNitt in the 3rd and it turned out to be all they needed.

McNitt went 5 innings and allowed 6 hits, walked 1, and struck out 5. Aaron Greenwood allowed a hit, walked 1, and struck out 2 in 2 scoreless, and Angel Heredia threw a 1-2-3 8th.

Ramon Laureano's first hit of the season was a solo homer that spoiled the shutout for the Bees in the 8th inning. Jason Martin finished 2-4 from the top of the order.

Monday: Quad Cities 4, Burlington 2

W- Akeem Bostick (2-1)
L- Keynan Middleton (2-3)
S- Jordan Mills (1)

QC home runs: Kristian Trompiz (4, solo in 4th)

The Banditos earned the split behind a solid outing from Akeem Bostick, who allowed a run on 9 hits (8 singles and a double) and struck out 3. Christian Powell was the first man out of the Quad Cities bullpen; he went 2.2 innings and allowed a solo homer to Fran Whitten in the 7th. Powell allowed one other hit and struck out 5. Jordan Mills got a strikeout to end the game.

Jason Martin opened up the scoring in the 3rd when he scored on a double play. Kristian Trompiz went 2-4, and his solo homer came with 1 out in the 4th. One batter later, Bobby Boyd struck out, but he managed to reach 1st base safely. He made his way around the bases via a single and a passed ball and scored on a sac fly from Martin, who finished 3-4 and added an RBI single to his ledger in the 6th. Jamie Ritchie went 3-5, while Jake Nottingham and Trompiz both finished with 2 hits apiece.

After a day off, the River Bandits will begin a roadtrip. First stop, West Michigan.

Monday: DSL Astros Blue 6, DSL Athletics 2

W- Hansel Paulino (1-0)
L- Jean Ruiz (0-1)

Blue home runs: Angel De Leon (1, solo in 1st), Orlando Marquez (1, 2-run in 3rd)

The Blue team opened up their season by sweeping the A's.

Reiny Beltre opened up the scoring with an RBI groundout in the 1st. One batter later, Angel De Leon went deep. The A's tied the game in the 2nd, but Orlando Marquez un-tied it with a 2-run homer in the 3rd. Beltre added an RBI single in the 5th, Wilson Amador drove in the final run of the morning in the 8th when he ripped an RBI triple. Andy Piñeda went 3-3 with a triple, 3 runs scored, and 2 steals (5).

Enrique Chavez went 3 innings and allowed 2 unearned runs in the 2nd, 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 3. The bullpen threw 6 scoreless; 4 of them came from Hansel Paulino, who allowed 2 hits and struck out 2. Dariel Aquino worked around a hit to throw a scoreless 8th, and Michel Martinez allowed 2 hits and struck out 1 in a scoreless 9th.

The Blue team is currently hosting the Indians.

Monday Game 1: DSL Nationals 7, DSL Astros Orange 4

W- Francys Peguero (1-0)
L- Jorge Guzman (0-1)

Orange home runs: Anthony Rodriguez (1, 2-run in 3rd)

Anthony Rodriguez had a nice professional debut as he ended up serving as the Orange team's offense, but it wasn't enough. They were behind the 8-ball early, trailing 4-0 after the 2nd.

Rodriguez cut that deficit in half with his first home run as a pro. He struck again in the 5th with a 2-run single.

Jorge Guzman went 2.2 innings and allowed 5 runs (3 earned, 1 inherited runner charged to him) on 4 hits, walked 4, and struck out 3. Ezequiel Madera went 1.1 innings, walked 3, and had 2 inherited runners charged to him after an error allowed them to score. Both of those runs were unearned. Gabriel Pirela allowed a hit over 2 scoreless.

Would game 2 have a better result in store for the Orange team?

Monday Game 2: DSL Nationals 6, DSL Astros Orange 5 in 9 innings


W- Nector Ramirez (1-0)
L- Josue Uribe (0-1)
S- Angel Guillen (1)

Orange home runs: None.

Josue Uribe served up the go-ahead solo homer in the 9th inning, condemning the Orange team to their 2nd loss of the day.

Jose Ramos got the start and went 3.1 innings, allowing 4 runs (3 earned, 1 inherited runner charged to him) on 6 hits and striking out 2. Gabriel Valdez was the first man out and allowed a run on 3 hits and struck out 4 over 2.2 innings. That homer was the only run Uribe allowed in his 3 innings. He allowed 2 other hits.

After the Nats put up 3 in the top of the 2nd, the Orange team responded with 4 in the bottom of the inning to take the lead. Ronny Rafael drew a bases-loaded walk, and Marcos Almonte cleared the bases with a double. Their other run came on an Oliver Toribio RBI single in the 6th. Almonte and Toribio both went 2-4, and Randy Vasquez finished 3-3 with 2 doubles.

The Orange team will look to rebound as they're currently at the Angels complex.
