Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Thursday, June 11, 2015

A streak is over.

Fresno 5, Salt Lake 4

W- Jason Stoffel (3-0)
L- Jeremy McBryde (1-1)

Fresno home runs: Max Stassi (7, solo in 9th)

Max Stassi was the hero as his home run propelled the Grizz to a win in the first game of this roadtrip.

Jon Singleton and Domingo Santana hit RBI singles in the 4th. In the 5th inning, Robbie Grossman ripped an RBI double, and Matt Duffy followed with an RBI single. The game was tied at 4 heading into the 9th, but Stassi wasted little time in giving Fresno the lead with his 7th home run of the year. Tony Kemp, in his AAA debut, went 1-4 with a run scored.

Asher Wojciechowski went 6 innings and allowed 4 runs on 8 hits (solo homer), walked 3, and struck out 4. Jordan Jankowski fired a 1-2-3 7th, striking out 1. Jason Stoffel allowed a hit and struck out 3 over 2 scoreless.

In game 2 of this series, Luis Cruz will face Tyler DeLoach at 7:05 Mountain.

Corpus Christi 7, Midland 6

W- Aaron West (2-3)
L- Jake Sanchez (4-5)
S- Jandel Gustave (8)

CC home runs: Jon Kemmer (6, 3-run in 5th)

This time, a 7-1 lead through 4.5 innings was nearly erased. But, once again, the Hooks escaped by the skin of their teeth. And so, the Hooks' magic number to clinch the 1st half in the Texas League South is now 1.

Colin Moran put the Hooks on the board first with a 2-run double in the 3rd, but he left the game after taking a bad step onto 2nd base. In the 4th, the Hooks got 2 more as Chan-Jong Moon hit a sac fly to score Jon Kemmer, and Teoscar Hernandez added an RBI single. Kemmer, who finished 4-4 with 2 runs scored, delivered the big hit of the evening as he whacked a 3-run homer in the 5th. Teoscar went 2-5 with a run scored and a stolen base (14).

Brad Peacock threw 2 scoreless innings in his rehab start; he allowed 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 2. Aaron West allowed a run on 4 hits and struck out 1 in 2 innings. Josh Hader was the only Corpus hurler to throw 3 innings; he allowed 4 runs on 6 hits (2-run homer), walked 2, and struck out 5. Chris Cotton got 2 outs in the 8th; he allowed a single and had an inherited runner charged to him. Juan Minaya recorded the final out of the inning, but not before he allowed the runner he inherited from Cotton to score. Jandel Gustave locked it down by striking out 2 in a 1-2-3 9th.

Joe Musgrove will make his AA debut as the Hooks look for the sweep. He'll take on Chris Jensen at 7:00.

Lancaster 9, Lake Elsinore 8

W- Frederick Tiburcio (2-0)
L- Kyle Bartsch (1-2)
S- Reymin Guduan (3)

Lancaster home runs: None.

The JetHawks withstood a 5-run 3rd from the Storm by scoring 5 of their own in the 6th to take a 9-6 lead. Lake Elsinore made it a 1-run game with 2 runs in the 6th, but Tyler Brunnemann and Reymin Guduan shut the door.

Per Jason Schwartz, this was the 900th JetHawks game as an affiliate of the Houston Astros.

Troy Scribner, Frederick Tiburcio, and Tyler Brunnemann pitched 2.2 innings apiece. Scribner, who got the start, allowed 6 runs on 11 hits (9 singles, 2 doubles), walked 2, and struck out 2. Tiburcio was the first man out of the bullpen and allowed 2 runs (1 earned, 1 inherited runner charged to him) on 4 hits, walked 2, and struck out 4. Tyler Brunnemann did not allow a run himself, but a groundout in the 6th allowed one of the 3 runners he inherited from Tiburcio to score. Bruno walked 2 and struck out 5. Reymin Guduan worked around a hit to close it out, striking out 2 in the 9th.

Brett Phillips tripled to lead off the game and came home on an RBI single from D.J. Fisher, who later scored on a double play. In the 4th, the JetHawks got 2 on a pair of RBI singles from Brian Holberton and Phillips. Phillips struck again in the 6th as he ripped an RBI double. J.D. Davis followed with a 2-run single, and Jack Mayfield got in on the fun by smacking a 2-run triple. Phillips finished 4-5, a homer shy of the cycle. Davis (2-run single) and Mayfield (2-run 3B) both finished 2-5, while Chase McDonald (2B, R) and Mott Hyde (2 R) were both 2-4.

Kevin Comer will make his first California League start in game 2 of this series. He'll face Rafael De Paula at 7:00 Pacific.

Quad Cities and Lansing was postponed

Due to rain. A doubleheader is scheduled for today, with game 1 beginning at 5:00. Brock Dykxhoorn and Josh James will take on Sean Reid-Foley and Chase De Jong. The River Bandits do not have a starter listed for game 2; whoever he is, he'll take on Jesus Tinoco.

DSL Athletics 4, DSL Astros Blue 3 in 10 innings

W- Alejandro Vargas (1-0)
L- Dariel Aquino (0-1)

Blue home runs: None.

The Blue team had a flurry of runs to take the lead, but the A's ultimately walked off with the victory.

Ronny Jimenez put the Blue team on the board with an RBI groundout in the 6th. Reiny Beltre ripped an RBI triple in the 7th, and he'd score on an Angel De Leon RBI single.

Diogenes Almengo went 4 innings and allowed 2 runs (1 earned) on 2 hits, walked 2, and struck out 3. Joel Belboder allowed an unearned run on 2 hits and struck out 4 in 5 innings. Dariel Aquino got 1 out in the 10th. He allowed the winning run on a single and walked 3, 1 of which was intentional.

These two teams are at the Astros' complex. First pitch is at 10:30 A.M. Atlantic, which isn't too long from now.

DSL Astros Orange 3, DSL Nationals 1

W- Starlyng Sanchez (1-0)
L- Tomas Alastre (0-1)
S- Luis Vasquez (1)

Orange home runs: None.

The Orange team dropped their first 10 games of the season, but on the 11th try, they finally got themselves off the schneid.

Angel Tejeda singled to lead off the 3rd inning, advanced to 2nd on a sac bunt, and scored the first run of the game on an error that also allowed Marcos Almonte to reach. Randy Vasquez went 2-4 and added a 2-run single in the 5th.

Franklin Perez started off with 3 scoreless innings, allowing 2 hits and striking out 1. Starlyng Sanchez allowed 3 hits, walked 2, and struck out 2 over 4 scoreless. Maikel Sepulveda allowed an unearned run, a single, walked 1, and struck out 2 in the 8th. Luis Vasquez closed it out with a 1-2-3 9th.

The Orange team and Nationals will be playing at the Nationals' complex later this morning.
