Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Friday, July 10, 2015

Let's play 2 in Williamsport!

The A clubs laid waste to their opponents.

Fresno 8, Sacramento 5

W- Luis Cruz (5-4)
L- Nik Turley (3-4)
S- Kevin Chapman (7)

Fresno home runs: None.

The Grizzlies looked like they'd be cruising to an 8-1 win, but suddenly, the RiverCats arose with 4 in the 8th and had the bases loaded in the 9th. However, the bullpen pulled itself together and was able to secure the win.

Robbie Grossman put Fresno on the board with a sac fly in the 2nd that tied the game at 1. L.J. Hoes added an RBI single in the 3rd inning, and in the 4th, Grossman added an RBI single to his ledger.

Tyler Heineman started off the 7th inning with a single. This turned out to be a 5-run inning as Jonathan Villar brought him home with a single. Hoes followed with a 2-run single, and then Matt Duffy hit a sac fly. Grossman finished the inning with an RBI single. Grossman (3 RBI), Hoes (3 RBI), Villar (RBI, R, SB [8]), and Heineman (R) had 2 hits apiece.

Luis Cruz had a solid outing as he allowed an unearned run on 5 hits, walked 2, and struck out 3 in 6 innings of work. Jake Buchanan allowed 4 runs on 4 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1.

James Hoyt got 1 out in the 9th via strikeout, but not before Sacramento loaded the bases on him by way of a hit batter, a single, and an error. Kevin Chapman was summoned to extract the Grizz from a pickle, which he did by getting Ryan Lollis to line out to Matt Duffy, and Adam Duvall grounded into a force out for the final out of the game. Whew.

Brady Rodgers will get the start in game 4 of this series. He'll take on Jack Snodgrass at 7:05 Pacific.

Corpus Christi 3, Tulsa 2

W- Scott Feldman (1-0)
L- Jose De Leon (2-4)
S- Chris Devenski (2)

CC home runs: Brett Booth (3, 4 season; 2-run in 5th), Colin Moran (1, solo in 6th)

The Hooks took the series as Scott Feldman had a solid rehab start. They were also held to 5 hits, but they won the column that matters.

Feldman allowed a run on 6 hits (5 singles and a double), walked 2, and struck out 4 over 5 innings. Chris Devenski finished it off, and the only complication he encountered was a solo shot from Peter Lavin in the 9th. Devo allowed 3 other hits, walked 2, and struck out 4 in 4 innings.

All 3 of the Hooks' runs came on homers. Tulsa took the lead with 1 in the top of the 5th, but Corpus quickly took the lead as Brett Booth hit a 2-run homer in the bottom of the inning. One inning later, Colin Moran hit his first home run of the season.

Tonight, the Hooks will play the first in a 3-game series with Springfield. Michael Feliz will face Corey Baker at 7:05.

Lancaster 10, Rancho Cucamonga 0

W- Bryan Radziewski (2-2, 3-2 season)
L- Jeff Brigham (4-5)
S- Keegan Yuhl (3, 4 season)

Lancaster home runs: D.J. Fisher (7, 13 season; solo in 3rd), J.D. Davis (12, solo in 3rd), Jake Nottingham 2 (3, 13 season; 2-run in 3rd, solo in 9th), A.J. Reed (23, 3-run in 6th)

The JetHawks took the series as they dominated the Quakes in all facets of the game.

Bryan Radziewski walked 2 and struck out 3 over 5 shutout frames, and Keegan Yuhl completed the shutout as he allowed 2 hits and whiffed 5 over the final 4 innings.

Ronnie Mitchell opened up the scoring with the only RBI that did not come on a home run. He hit an RBI single in the 2nd. D.J. Fisher and J.D. Davis hit back-to-back solo shots in the 3rd. After Chase McDonald reached on an error later in the inning, Jake Nottingham went deep.

A.J. Reed bid adieu to the California League with a bang as he whacked a 3-run home run in the 6th, his 23rd of the season. Nottingham topped it off with his 2nd homer of the evening, a solo shot in the 9th. The Sheriff now has 13 homers between both A stops. He (2 HR, 3 RBI), Reed (3-R HR), and Mott Hyde had 2 hits apiece.

The JetHawks are back home, and tonight, they will begin a 3-game series with High Desert. Edison Frias will take on Trey Lambert at 6:00 Pacific.

Nick Tanielu ripped a 2-run double in the bottom of the 1st to put the Banditos in the lead... for good. Jamie Ritchie added an RBI single in the 5th, and the floodgates opened up in the 6th.

Trent Woodward led off the inning with a single and scored on a wild pitch. Ryan Bottger was the only player in the Quad Cities lineup to not have a hit, but he did have a sac fly in that 6-run 6th.
