Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Thursday, June 25, 2015

Thursday's slate marked the first time that every team in the Houston Astros organization, from the Major League club all the way down to the 2 Dominican Summer League clubs, was in action.

Sacramento 7, Fresno 5

W- Matt Cain (1-2)
L- Brady Rodgers (5-4)
S- Erik Cordier (5)

Fresno home runs: Jon Singleton 2 (17; 2-run in 4th, 2-run in 8th), Andrew Aplin (2, solo in 7th)

The Grizz dropped the series to their former Major League overlords as their homers weren't enough.

All 5 Fresno runs were the product of home runs. Jon Singleton whacked a couple of 2-run shots, and the other was a solo homer from Andrew Aplin.

Brady Rodgers went 5 innings and allowed 4 runs on 10 hits (solo homer), walked 2, and struck out 2. James Hoyt was the first man out; he allowed 3 runs (1 earned, 2 inherited runners charged to him) on 2 hits (solo homer) and struck out 3. Jose Veras allowed 2 hits in 1.2 innings, and Jason Stoffel threw a 1-2-3 9th.

The Grizzlies will now kick off a roadtrip. First up is 5 in Reno, which includes a doubleheader on Saturday. In game 1, Mike Hauschild will get the start. He'll face Jhoulys Chacín at 7:05 Pacific.

Corpus Christi 3, Frisco 1

W- Brian Holmes (2-2, 4-3 season)
L- Cody Bell (2-8)
S- Jandel Gustave (9)

CC home runs: None.

The Hooks took game 1 of this series thanks to a fine performance from 3 relievers who held the Roughriders hitless over the final 3.2 innings.

Brian Holmes got the start and in 5.1 innings, the only run he allowed came on a solo homer hit by Alex Burg. He allowed 4 other hits, walked 3, and struck out 3. Aaron West tagged in and struck out 2 over 2 perfect innings. Chris Cotton got 2 outs in the 8th, striking out 1. It got a bit hairy as Jandel Gustave issued 2 walks in the 9th, but he averted disaster and secured the win.

Jon Kemmer went 2-4 and opened up the scoring with an RBI single in the 3rd. Later in the inning, Tyler White added a sac fly. Chan-Jong Moon doubled to lead off the 7th, advanced to 3rd on a Brett Phillips groundout, and scored on a balk. Phillips, in his AA debut, started in CF and went 0-3 from the #2 spot in the order.

In game 2 of this series, Kyle Westwood will face Jose Leclerc. First pitch (as always) is at 7:05.

Lancaster 8, Bakersfield 6 in 10 innings

W- Kevin Comer (1-2, 6-3 season)
L- Emilio Pagán (2-6)
S- Reymin Guduan (4)

Lancaster home runs: J.D. Davis (11, solo in 10th), James Ramsay (7, solo in 10th)

The JetHawks opened up the 2nd half with a win in Bakersfield's New Deal-era ballpark as they withstood a 5-run 3rd inning from the Blaze. J.D. Davis and James Ramsay hit back-to-back solo shots in the first extra frame to put the JetHawks in front.

D.J. Fisher finished 2-5 and put Lancaster on the board first with a 2-run single in the 3rd inning. He'd come around to score on an A.J. Reed RBI single. The Blaze put up 5 to take the lead, but it would be short-lived as the JetHawks responded with a pair in the 4th: Mott Hyde hit an RBI groundout, and Jose Fernandez scored on a wild pitch. Lancaster re-took the lead in the 5th on an RBI infield single from Ronnie Mitchell. Bakersfield got 1 in the 7th to tie the game at 6, and that's where both teams stood heading into extras. Reed grounded out to begin the 10th, but J.D. Davis and James Ramsay would be the heroes late as their solo homers off of Emilio Pagán put the JetHawks in the lead. Reed and Mitchell joined Fisher in finishing 2-5.

Edison Frias allowed 5 unearned runs on 7 hits (2-run homer), walked 1, and struck out 4 in 4.2 innings. Andrew Walter allowed a hit and got the final out of the 5th with a K. Kevin Comer went 4 innings and allowed an unearned run on a groundout, a single, walked 1, and struck out 3. Reymin Guduan worked around a hit and a walk to close out the game; he struck out the side in the 10th.

In game 2 of this series, Austin Chrismon will take on Eddie Campbell. First pitch is at 7:45 Pacific.

Cedar Rapids 4, Quad Cities 3

W- Luke Bard (5-0)

The Banditos let this one slip away late as the Kernels scored all 4 of their runs in the final 2 innings.

Jake Nottingham opened up the scoring with an RBI groundout in the 1st. Ramon Laureano ripped an RBI triple in the 2nd. After Cedar Rapids scored 3 in the 8th to take the lead, Thomas Lindauer hit an RBI single in the 9th to tie the game at 3. However, that tie was short-lived, as the Kernels walked off with the win. Lindauer finished 2-3.

Justin Ferrell allowed 3 hits, walked 1, and struck out 2 over 4 shutout innings. Jordan Mills worked around 2 hits to throw a scoreless 5th, striking out 1. Jorge Perez went 3.2 innings and allowed 4 runs on 7 hits and struck out 2.

Greeneville 2, Bristol 1 in 12 innings

W- Cris Santamaria (1-0)
L- Dan Urbina (0-1)

Greeneville home runs: Osvaldo Duarte (1, solo in 1st)

One night after walking off with a 2-1 loss in extras, the Appy Astros walked off with a 2-1 win in extras in their home opener.

Osvaldo Duarte scored the first run and the last run of the game: He led off the bottom of the 1st with the first home run of his career and scored the winning run in the 12th on a sac fly from Arturo Michelena after drawing a walk with 1 out in the inning.

Brian Peña went 2-5, while Kevin Martir and Myles Straw hit doubles. Aaron Mizell stole his 3rd base of the season.

Jacob Dorris went 2.2 innings and allowed 2 hits, walked 3, and struck out 4. He got into a bit of a jam in the 12th, but Cris Santamaria got him out of it by getting the final out of the inning.

Greeneville will be home for the weekend. Tonight, they welcome the Danville Braves to Pioneer Park. Salvador Montaño will get the start for the Appy Astros; first pitch is at 7:00 Eastern. A lanky lefty, Montaño struck out 87 in the Dominican Summer League last year, the 2nd-highest total in all of the DSL.

W- Daris Vargas (1-0)
L- Enrique Chavez (0-1, 2-1 season)

Many of these kids on the GCL squad are new arrivals from the DSL, and they're getting a rather rude welcome from the Gulf Coast League.

The Kissimmee Stros' only 2 runs came in the 6th, as Kyle Tucker hit a single, and an error on the play allowed Joan Mauricio and Jonathan Matute to score. Mauricio stole his first base of the season.
