Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Wednesday, June 10, 2015

California League craziness.

Fresno was off

The Grizzlies are in Salt Lake City where they'll begin a 4-game series with the Bees at 7:05 Mountain. Asher Wojciechowski will take on Adam Wilk.

Corpus Christi 8, Midland 7

W- Chris Devenski (7-0)
L- Tim Atherton (2-3)
S- Jandel Gustave (7)

CC home runs: None.

The Hooks jumped out to an 8-0 lead then watched it wither away. However, Chris Devenski saved the day. With the win, Corpus Christi leapfrogged Quad Cities for the best record in the system.

Michael Feliz went 4+ innings and allowed 6 runs (3 inherited runners charged to him) on 5 hits (solo homer), walked 3, and struck out 2. Travis Ballew came on in relief of Feliz to try to bail him out of a bases-loaded situation, but he allowed all 3 runners to score and a run of his own on 2 hits while failing to record an out. At that point, the Hooks lead was whittled down to 1.

Never fear, Chris Devenski is here! He stopped all that nonsense from Midland by firing 4 scoreless innings, allowing 3 hits, walking 2, and striking out 6. Jandel Gustave quickly got 2 outs in the 9th, but the Hounds suddenly decided that they weren't done yet. They got 2 singles and an error to load the bases, but Gustave ended that by getting Chad Oberacker to ground out to end the game.

Andrew Aplin hit a sac fly in the 1st to open the scoring. Conrad Gregor tripled to lead off the 2nd, and that's when the fun began. Jon Kemmer brought him home with a single. A wild pitch allowed Kemmer to move to 2nd, and Jio Mier to 3rd. Roberto Peña followed by ripping a 2-run double. Peña advanced to 3rd on a groundout and scored on a sac fly from Teoscar Hernandez. Aplin smacked a triple and scored himself on a wild pitch. The Hooks got a couple of RBI singles from Teoscar and Colin Moran in the 4th inning. Kemp, Teoscar, Aplin, Gregor, and Peña all finished with 2 hits in the game. Teoscar finally got himself off the interstate as he's now at an even .200 at the plate.

Brad Peacock begins his rehab assignment tonight. He'll take on Jake Sanchez at 7.

Lancaster 11, Visalia 9 in 10 innings

W- Keegan Yuhl (1-0, 2-0 season)
L- J.R. Bradley (0-2)

Lancaster home runs: Jack Mayfield (6, solo in 3rd), Ronnie Mitchell (5, solo in 5th), Brett Phillips (11, 3-run in 5th)

The JetHawks lost a lead late, but they kept the game tied before things got out of hand, re-took the lead, and navigated a minefield to secure the win and the series.

Both teams got 2 in the 2nd. Lancaster's 2 came in the form of an Alfredo Gonzalez RBI single and an RBI triple from Brian Holberton. Jack Mayfield went deep in the 3rd, and J.D. Davis added an RBI infield single in the 4th. The JetHawks' 4 runs came off the home runs by Ronnie Mitchell (solo) and Brett Phillips (3-run). Phillips added an RBI triple in the 7th, which put the JetHawks up 9-4 at that point. Chase McDonald was the hero in the first extra frame as he put the JetHawks ahead with a 2-run single. He and J.D. Davis had 3 hits apiece. Alfredo Gonzalez went 2-3 with 3 runs scored. He, Holberton (3B, RBI, R), and Phillips (3B, HR, 4 RBI) had 2-hit nights.

Adrian Houser went 6+ innings and allowed 6 runs (4 earned, 2 inherited runners charged to him) on 6 hits (2-run homer), walked 2, and struck out 6. Andrew Walter, in his season debut, came on to relieve Houser in the 7th. He got 2 outs, both via strikeout, and allowed a 2-run homer. Reymin Guduan got the final out of the 7th and 1 out in the 8th, allowing an unearned run (inherited runner charged to him), a hit, walking 1, and striking out 1. Keegan Yuhl allowed 4 hits and struck out 4 over 2.1 innings. Tyler Brunnemann was summoned to secure the win with the bases loaded, and he did just that, striking out Fidel Peña to end the game.

The 2nd leg of the JetHawks' roadtrip will take them to Lake Elsinore for 4 games. In the opener, Troy Scribner will take on Ronald Herrera. First pitch is at 7:00 Pacific.

Lansing 12, Quad Cities 5

W- Starlyn Suriel (4-3)
L- Ryan Thompson (1-2)

QC home runs: None.

The Lugnuts got the jump on the Banditos, who fell behind the Hooks for the best record in pro baseball.

Jake Nottingham ripped an RBI double in the 1st to open the scoring. He later scored on a sac fly from Ryan Bottger. Bottger drove in Nottingham for a 2nd time with an RBI single in the 6th. Bobby Boyd added an RBI groundout in the 7th, and Jason Martin hit an RBI single in the bottom of the 9th.

Austin Chrismon had an inherited runner charged to him, allowed a double, and struck out 1 in 2.2 innings. He didn't leave with an injury. Ryan Thompson pitched 1.1 innings and allowed 3 runs (all on homers) on 4 hits (solo and 2-run home runs) and struck out 2. Jorge Perez bore the brunt of the Lansing assault as he allowed 8 runs on 7 hits, walked 5, and struck out 2. Aaron Greenwood struck out 1 over 1.2 perfect innings.

In game 2 of this series, Brock Dykxhoorn will face Sean Reid-Foley at 7:00.

DSL Astros Blue 18, DSL Phillies 9

W- Cristian Javier (1-0)
L- Joel Cabrera (0-1)

Blue home runs: Angel De Leon (2, 2-run in 1st)

The Blue team is back to its winning ways after stumbling a bit on Tuesday. They used a 6-run 6th and a 7-run 8th to spur themselves on to the win.

Every starter in the lineup scored a run. Andy Piñeda led the way by going 5-6 with a triple and 4 RBI. Orlando Marquez (2 3B) and Angel De Leon (2-run homer) drove in 3 and scored 2 runs each. Reiny Beltre and Wilson Amador drove in 2 and scored 2 runs. Ronny Jimenez went 3-5 with an RBI and 3 runs scored. Ozziel Sanchez-Galan went 0-2, but he walked twice and scored twice.

Michel Martinez allowed an unearned run on 4 hits, walked 1, and struck out 2 over 3 innings. Luidin Toribio allowed a 2-run homer in the 4th. He walked 1 and struck out 1. Cristian Javier was next; he allowed a hit, walked 1, and struck out 3 over 2 scoreless and got the win in his professional debut. Jacques Sambo allowed a run, a single, walked 1, and struck out 2 in the 7th. Framber Valdez allowed 5 runs (3 earned) on 5 hits, walked 3, and struck out 2 in 2 innings.

The Blue team is playing the A's.

DSL Mariners2 5, DSL Astros Orange 1

W- Saul Cuenca (1-0)
L- Gabriel Valdez (0-2)

This isn't funny anymore.

The Orange team's only run came in the 5th as Marcos Almonte stole 2nd, and on the ensuing errant throw down, Juan Fuente seized the opportunity and scored. Almonte finished 3-4.

Gabriel Valdez went 4 innings and allowed 2 runs on 5 hits, walked 1, and struck out 2. Josue Uribe pitched 4 innings as well; he allowed 3 runs on 6 hits and walked 1 while striking out 3.

Well, they can't go winless forever, right? The Orange team is playing the Nationals.
