Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Tuesday, June 30, 2015

How did the Astros organization do on this final day of June?

Fresno 10, El Paso 5

W- Brady Rodgers (6-4)
L- James Needy (6-5)

Fresno home runs: None.

The Grizz jumped out to an 8-0 lead and that margin proved to be strong enough to withstand a late charge from the Chihuahuas.

Fresno pounded out 18 hits in this one; everyone who appeared in the game for the Grizzlies, including Joe Sclafani, who came on as a pinch-hitter for L.J. Hoes, recorded a hit. Tyler Heineman grounded into a force out in the 2nd that brought Jonathan Villar home with the first run of the game. L.J. Hoes smacked an RBI triple in the 4th and eventually scored on a Nolan Fontana single.

The Grizzlies really blew this game open in the 6th as they put up 5 runs, capitalizing on a bases-loaded, no out situation. Heineman added an RBI single to his ledger. Andrew Aplin followed with a soft liner for a 2-run single. Tony Kemp added a sac fly, and Matt Duffy capped off the scoring in the frame with an RBI single. They added 2 more in the 8th as Alex Presley hit an RBI double, and Joe Sclafani drove in Fresno's final run of the night with an RBI single.

Fontana led the way with 3 hits. 6 others, including Kemp, Heineman, and Aplin, posted 2 hits each.

Brady Rodgers went 6.2 innings and allowed 3 runs on 5 hits (2-run homer) and struck out 3. Mitch Lambson struck out 2 over 1.1 perfect innings, and Tyson Perez was able to close out the game despite allowing 2 runs on 3 hits and walking 1 in the 9th.

Mike Hauschild will be on the mound for game 2 of this series. He'll take on Chris Smith at 7:05 Mountain.
