Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Sunday, June 21, 2015

Goodbye, 1st half.

Let's play 2 in Corpus Christi!

Las Vegas 4, Fresno 2

W- Chase Bradford (2-2)
L- Jason Stoffel (3-1)

Fresno home runs: None.

Well, that stunk. The 51s swiped the win from right under the Grizzlies' noses thanks to a grand slam with 2 outs in the top of the 9th.

Asher Wojciechowski was fantastic as he threw 7 shutout innings, allowing 6 hits and striking out 5. James Hoyt tossed a 1-2-3 8th, and Jason Stoffel came on to close out the game. Grande Rojo had his difficulties, although he managed to record 2 outs via strikeout. Unfortunately, everything came crashing down upon him when Brooks Conrad hit a grand slam to put Vegas in the lead. Jose Veras allowed a hit and got a strikeout to end the 9th, but the damage was done.

Fresno's 2 runs came in the 4th as Tyler Heineman opened up the scoring with an RBI double, and Tony Kemp brought him home with a single. That single extended Kemp's hitting streak to 24 games. He and Heineman had 2 hits apiece.

The Grizzlies will now welcome Sacramento to Chukchansi Park for 3 beginning tonight at 7:05. Luis Cruz will face Chris Stratton in game 1.

Game 1: Corpus Christi 2, San Antonio 1

W- Mark Appel (5-1)
L- Justin Hancock (6-3)

CC home runs: None.

Mark Appel went the distance as the Hooks came out on top in the first game of this Sunday twinbill. He allowed an unearned run on 4 hits and struck out 6.

The Hooks' 2 runs both came on sacrifice flies. Colin Moran hit the first one in the 1st inning, and Jon Kemmer's in the 3rd proved to be the difference. Danry Vásquez went 2-3, while Teoscar Hernandez stole 2 bases, giving him 17 on the year.

Game 2: San Antonio 3, Corpus Christi 1

W- Stephen Kohlscheen (2-0)
L- Kyle Westwood (5-3)
S- Tayron Guerrero (6)

CC home runs: None.

The Hooks had to settle for a split thanks to one Hunter Renfroe, who took Kyle Westwood deep twice.

Westwood, who also went the distance, allowed everything: 3 runs on 6 hits. He walked 1 and struck out 3.

The only Corpus run came in the 1st when Jon Kemmer hit an RBI single.

Lake Elsinore 7, Lancaster 5

W- Ronald Herrera (5-5)
L- Troy Scribner (2-3)
S- Jason Jester (2)

Well, both teams had an inning in which they scored 2 runs and an inning in which 3 runs. The difference was Lake Elsinore's 2 runs in the top of the 7th.

Troy Scribner went 6 innings and allowed 3 hits. Unfortunately, 2 of those 3 hits were home runs, and the Storm got 5 runs off of him. He walked 3 and struck out 6. Tyler Brunnemann was the first man out of the Lancaster bullpen; he allowed 2 runs on 2 hits (solo homer) in 2 innings. Keegan Yuhl worked around a hit as he threw a scoreless 9th.

Jose Fernandez whacked a 2-run triple in the 2nd that tied the game at 2. In the 7th, A.J. Reed drew a bases-loaded walk, and J.D. Davis followed with a 2-run single. Davis finished 3-4 with a double and a run scored. Reed finished 2-3 with 2 walks and a run scored.

The California-Carolina League All-Star Game will be held Tuesday at LoanMart Field in Rancho Cucamonga. The Lancaster JetHawks will be represented by Jack Mayfield, A.J. Reed, and Brett Phillips.

Quad Cities 3, Burlington 1

W- Brandon McNitt (1-2)
L- Justin Anderson (4-5)

QC home runs: Jason Martin (3, solo in 6th)

The Banditos closed out the 1st half with the win, and the playoff berth, as Akeem Bostick and Brandon McNitt combined to throw a 4-hitter.

Bostick went 5 innings and allowed a run in the 5th on a double play. He also allowed 3 hits, walked 1, and struck out 3. McNitt finished it off by allowing a hit and striking out 4 over 4 scoreless.

Jake Nottingham put Quad Cities on the board with an RBI groundout in the 5th. Jason Martin put them in the lead with his solo home run in the 6th. Nottingham, who finished 3-4, singled to lead off the 7th, stole 2nd (1), advanced to 3rd on a passed ball, and scored on a Ryan Bottger strikeout that got away.

The Midwest League All-Star Game will be held on Tuesday in Peoria. The Quad Cities River Bandits will be represented by Jamie Ritchie, Jake Nottingham, and Nick Tanielu.

L- Dean Deetz (0-1)

Well, the ValleyCats were foiled in their attempt to sweep series #1 as their bats were held in check.

Bryan Muñiz went 2-3 with a double. The other hit was a double belonging to Kolbey Carpenter.

Dean Deetz went 5 innings and allowed an unearned run on 4 hits, walked 1, and struck out 3. Joselo Pinales got 2 outs in the 6th and allowed a hit, walked 2, and struck out 1.
