Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Thursday, June 4, 2015

Pretty rough night on the farm.

Colorado Springs 7, Fresno 3

W- Josh Roenicke (3-2)
L- Dan Straily (4-4)

Fresno home runs: Max Stassi (6, solo in 5th)

The Grizz were undone by a 5-run 5th inning after Stassi tied the game at 1 with his homer.

Dan Straily went 4.1 innings and allowed 5 runs (1 inherited runner charged to him) on 11 hits, walked 1, and struck out 4. Richard Rodriguez got the final 2 outs of the 5th and allowed a run of his own. He gave up 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1. Jonas Dufek walked 2 in a scoreless 6th. Jordan Jankowski allowed an unearned run on 2 hits and struck out 2 in the 7th, and Murilo Gouvea threw a 1-2-3 8th inning.

Stassi's homer was the first Fresno run, and it came in the 5th inning, as you can see above. Domingo Santana finished 2-4 with an RBI double in the 6th, and Jon Singleton ripped an RBI double. Alex Presley, who finished 2-4, scored on both RBI doubles.

In the series finale, Alex White takes on Drew Gagnon. First pitch is at 7:05 Mountain.

Northwest Arkansas 3, Corpus Christi 1

W- Daniel Stumpf (3-1)
L- Michael Feliz (0-1, 1-2 season)

CC home runs: None.

This game played out sort of like the Astros game. The Hooks had plenty of opportunities to put up runs, like a bases-loaded situation in the 6th with 1 out, but they scored zero runs. Then, the Naturals got a 2-run homer in the bottom of the 9th to get ahead. The Hooks threatened again in the bottom of the 9th as they had runners on 2nd and 3rd with no outs after a wild pitch. However, no runs resulted from that situation either.

That's just an annoying way to lose a game. Seriously.

Chris Devenski went 5 innings and allowed a run on 4 hits, walked 1, and struck out 7. Michael Feliz pitched the final 4 innings, and unfortunately, Lane Adams took him deep in the 9th. Those were the only 2 runs that Feliz allowed. He gave up 3 other hits and struck out 3.

Corpus Christi's only run came all the way back in the 1st as Teoscar Hernandez scored on an Andrew Aplin groundout. Teoscar also stole his 11th base of the year. Tony Kemp had a double in 3 trips to the plate, walked twice, and stole his 14th bag of the campaign. Colin Moran finished 2-4.

The Hooks will now begin a series with the other Arkansas team, the Travelers. In game 1 of this series, Josh Hader will take on Albert Suarez at 7:05.

Rancho Cucamonga 8, Lancaster 5

W- Ramon Benjamin (3-2)
L- Evan Grills (3-5)

Lancaster home runs: A.J. Reed (15, solo in 4th), Marc Wik (2, solo in 5th), Brett Phillips (9, solo in 8th)

The JetHawks just didn't have the guns to stick with the Quakes in the series opener.

A.J. Reed's 15 homers lead the California League. That blast led off the 4th inning. Reed also had an RBI double in the 1st inning. One batter later, he came home thanks to a Jack Mayfield double. The last 2 Lancaster runs were Wik's homer and Phillip's homer. Reed and Wik finished with 2 hits apiece.

Evan Grills went 5 innings and allowed 6 runs on 8 hits (2-run homer), walked 3, and struck out 4. Tyler Brunnemann was the first man out of the JetHawks bullpen; he went 2 innings and allowed a 2-run homer to Tyler Ogle in the 7th, the only 2 runs scored off of him. Bruno allowed 2 other hits, walked 1, and struck out 2. Frederick Tiburcio struck out 2 over 2 perfect innings.

In game 2 of this series, Troy Scribner gets the start. He'll face Jharel Cotton at 6:30 Pacific.

West Michigan 3, Quad Cities 2

W- Gage Smith (1-1)
L- Eric Peterson (2-1)
S- Joe Jimenez (4)

QC home runs: None.

The Whitecaps got a pair of homers as they managed to slip by the Banditos.

Jake Nottingham went 2-4 and scored both Quad Cities runs. Kristian Trompiz brought him home with a single in the 2nd, and Sean McMullen hit a sac fly that allowed him to score in the 4th. Nick Tanielu and Bobby Boyd also had 2-hit nights.

Brock Dykxhoorn was strong through 5 innings, but West Michigan finally broke through for 2 runs off of him in the 6th, which tied the game. He allowed 4 hits (solo homer), walked 1, and struck out 6 in 5.1 innings. Eric Peterson got the final 2 outs of the 6th, but Zach Shepherd put the Whitecaps in front with a homer to begin the 7th inning. Peterson allowed one other hit and struck out 2 in 1.2 innings. Ryan Thompson struck out 1 in a 1-2-3 9th.

Josh James will start the series finale. He'll face Spenser Watkins at 7 Eastern.

DSL Astros Blue 9, DSL Royals 5

W- Michel Martinez (1-0)
L- Samuel Adames (that is really his name) (1-1)

Blue home runs: None.

Better late than never... the Blue team scored 8 in the 8th to seize control of this game. As a result, the were the only winners in the system on Thursday.

4 pitchers appeared for the Astros Blue, and none of them issued a walk or hit a batter or threw a wild pitch. Edwin Villarroel allowed 4 runs on 6 hits and struck out 4 over 5 innings. Michel Martinez was the first man out of the pen; he allowed a run on a fielder's choice, a double (both occurred in the 7th), and struck out 3. Cristofer Melendez struck out 1 in a 1-2-3 8th, and Dariel Aquino struck out the side in order in the 9th to finish off the comeback win.

Reiny Beltre hit a single to lead off the 7th, advanced to 3rd on a double from Angel De Leon, and scored on an error that also saw Cristopher Luciano reach base. The floodgates opened in the 8th.

Orlando Marquez opened up the scoring in the inning with a 2-run single. De Leon followed with an RBI single. They both scored when Ronny Jimenez ripped a 2-run double that also saw Luciano advance to 3rd. Jimenez and Luciano scored on a 2-run single from Juan Piñeda. Piñeda advanced to 2nd on the throw to the plate and to 3rd on an error. He capped off the scoring as Wilson Amador grounded into a force out. Amador went 0-5, but he stole 2 bases (3). Juan Piñeda, Marquez, and De Leon finished with 2 hits apiece.

DSL Rangers1 11, DSL Astros Orange 1

W- Pedro Brito (1-0)
L- Gabriel Valdez (0-1)

Orange home runs: None.

The Orange team's quest for their first win continues...

Anardo Peralta tripled in the 5th inning and scored on a groundout from Angel Tejeda. Carlos Machado finished 2-4.

Gabriel Valdez and Josue Uribe were both shelled as they allowed 5 runs apiece. Uribe inherited a runner from Valdez that scored. I'll leave it at that. Michael Richez allowed a run on 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 3 in 2 innings of work. Ezequiel Madera allowed 2 hits in a scoreless 9th.
