Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Tuesday, June 9, 2015

Mark Appel takes the hill in Midland.

Reno 5, Fresno 1

W- Edgar Garcia (1-0)
L- Dan Straily (4-5)

Fresno home runs: L.J. Hoes (3, solo in 7th)

Well, the Grizz were foiled in their attempt to sweep the series as the Aces knocked Dan Straily around.

Straily went 6 innings and allowed 5 runs on 8 hits (2-run homer) and struck out 8. 6 of the 8 hits he allowed went for extra bases. Three relievers pitched a scoreless inning each: Jason Stoffel allowed a hit and struck out 1 in the 7th, Jose Veras walked 1 and fanned 1 in the 8th, and Mitch Lambson struck out 1 in a 1-2-3 9th.

Hoes' solo homer in the 7th was the only Fresno run, and one of just 4 hits on the day.

Fresno has a day off today. Tomorrow, they'll begin a 4-game set in Salt Lake.

Corpus Christi 5, Midland 2

W- Kyle Westwood (4-2)
L- Nate Long (3-4)

CC home runs: Tyler White (4, solo in 9th)

Kyle Westwood shut it down, and the Hooks got some much-needed insurance runs in the 9th as they took the first of 4 from the Hounds.

Mark Appel went 5 innings and served up 2 solo shots to Colin Walsh. The Hounds couldn't muster up much of anything else against him; the other hit he allowed was a double. Appel walked 3 and struck out 5. Westwood tagged in and finished the game, allowing 2 hits, walking 1, and striking out 6 in 4 innings.

Jio Mier drew a 1-out walk in the 1st, advanced to 3rd on an Andrew Aplin double, and scored the first run of the evening on a wild pitch. Aplin later scored on a sac fly from Colin Moran. Tony Kemp finished 3-5 with a double and an RBI single in the 7th; he's now on a 12-game hitting streak. Tyler White came on as a pinch-hitter for Danry Vásquez to begin the 9th and swatted his 4th homer of the year. Later in the inning, Aplin added an RBI single to his ledger. He (2B, RBI, R, SB [10, 16 season]) and Jon Kemmer (R) finished with 2 hits apiece.

Michael Feliz will be on the mound for Corpus Christi in game 2 of this series. He'll face Tim Atherton at 6:30.

Visalia 3, Lancaster 0

W- Zack Godley (7-3)
L- Bryan Radziewski (0-1, 1-1 season)
S- Nick Sarianides (9)

Lancaster home runs: None.

The JetHawks threatened in the top of the 9th, but sadly, James Ramsay struck out with the bases loaded to end the game. They only got 4 singles, 2 of which belonged to A.J. Reed. Mott Hyde, in his Lancaster debut, went 0-2 and walked twice.

Sometimes, one hit is all a team needs. Bryan Radziewski, unfortunately, was the victim of that one hit for Visalia as he allowed a 3-run homer to Kevin Cron in the 3rd that constituted all the scoring in this game. He went 5 innings and allowed 4 other hits, walked 2, and struck out 5. Evan Grills allowed a hit and fanned 6 over 3 scoreless.

In the rubber game of this series, Adrian Houser will take on Blayne Weller. First pitch is at 6 Pacific.

Quad Cities was off

The River Bandits will begin a 3-game set with Lansing tonight at 7. In game 1, Austin Chrismon will take on Starlyn Suriel.

DSL Phillies 9, DSL Astros Blue 7

W- Robinson Martinez (1-0)
L- Cristofer Melendez (0-1)

Blue home runs: Andy Piñeda (1, led off game)

The Blue team withstood a 6-run 6th from the Phillies by scoring 3 in the 8th to tie the game... but their opponents had an answer with 2 in the bottom of the 8th to re-take the lead.

Andy Piñeda went deep to begin the game. In the 3rd, the Blue team got an RBI single from Reiny Beltre and a 2-run double from Cristopher Luciano. Luciano scored on a wild pitch in the 8th inning. Jose Benjamin followed by scoring on an error, and then Andy Piñeda, who finished 3-4, hit an RBI single. Beltre went 2-5, while Oscar Campos finished 2-2 with 2 walks and another caught basestealer.

Hector Perez allowed a run on 4 hits, walked 1, and struck out 5 in 5 innings. Jorge Alcala came on for the 6th and failed to record an out. He was on the hook for all 6 of the Phillies' runs in that inning; 3 of those were inherited runners that were charged to him. Alcala allowed 4 hits and walked 2. Cristofer Melendez allowed the 2 runs in the 8th that put the Phillies back in the lead; both were unearned. He pitched 3 innings, allowed 3 hits, and walked 1.

These teams played again today.

DSL Mariners2 6, DSL Astros Orange 4 in 10 innings

W- Ricardo Reyes (1-0)
L- Gabriel Pirela (0-2)

Orange home runs: Felix Lucas (1, solo in 8th)

What on earth does the Orange team have to do???

They opened up the scoring with a pair in the 3rd, thanks to a sac fly from Juan Fuente and an RBI double from Michael Richez. Richez, who is normally a pitcher, finished 2-5, was making his first appearance as a position player. Felix Lucas scored in the 4th as Carlos Machado grounded into a force out. Lucas finished 3-5 and smacked a solo homer in the 8th that tied the game at 4.

Unfortunately, the Mariners got a 2-run homer in the first extra frame to get back in front. The Orange team threatened with runners on 1st and 2nd in the bottom of the 10th, but Randy Vasquez grounded into a force out to end the game.

Cesar Rosado allowed an unearned run on 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 3 over 4 innings. Bryan Abreu was the first man out of the bullpen and went 2.2 innings, allowing 3 runs (2 earned, 1 inherited runner charged to him) on 2 hits, walking 3, and striking out 1. Gabriel Pirela pitched 2.1 innings and allowed the go-ahead 2-run homer in the 10th. He allowed 3 other hits, walked 2, and struck out 2. Yonatan Quintin pitched the 10th, allowing a hit and walking 1.

The Orange team is still searching for that first win as they're at the Mariners complex.
