Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Wednesday, July 22, 2015 

Let's play 2 at Disney World, apparently!

Fresno 12, Las Vegas 4

W- Mike Hauschild (4-2, 9-3 season)
L- Darin Gorski (8-7)

Fresno home runs: Robbie Grossman (3, solo in 5th), Jonathan Villar (2, 2-run in 8th), Domingo Santana (15, solo in 8th)

The Grizzlies got 3 in the 2nd and 4 in the 5th to jump out to a big lead, and although the 51s attempted to dent that lead, Fresno found an answer each time.

The offense got a big boost from Joe Sclafani. He opened up the scoring with a 2-run single in the 2nd and later scored on an RBI single from Leo Heras. Sclafani, who finished 3-5, struck again in the 5th when he whacked a 2-run triple. Prior to his triple, Robbie Grossman went deep. Sclafani wound up coming home on a Nolan Fontana triple. In the 6th, Tyler White ripped an RBI double.

The Grizzlies' 3 runs in the 8th came on a 2-run shot from Jonathan Villar and a solo homer from Domingo Santana, and finally, Sclafani scored Fresno's final run of the night when Jonathan Villar grounded into a force out in the 9th. Domingo (solo HR, 3 R), Matt Duffy (2B, 2 R), and Leo Heras (RBI, 2 R) had 2 hits apiece.

Mike Hauschild had a fine outing as he allowed a run on 3 hits, walked 2, and whiffed 8 in 7 innings of work. Jake Buchanan and Jose Veras pitched an inning apiece; Buchanan allowed an unearned run and a hit in the 8th and Veras allowed 2 runs on 3 hits, walked 1, and struck out 2 in the 9th inning.

In the series finale, Asher Wojciechowski will face Dillon Gee. First pitch is at 7:05 Pacific.

Corpus Christi 9, Midland 3

W- Brian Holmes (4-4, 6-5 season)
L- Tim Atherton (5-4)
S- Aaron West (3)

CC home runs: Teoscar Hernandez (10, solo in 1st), Jon Kemmer (12, 2-run in 2nd), Brett Phillips (1, 16 season; 2-run in 8th)

A 5-run 8th gave the Hooks the separation they needed in this one. With this win, they earned the split with the Rockhounds.

Teoscar opened the scoring in the 1st with his 10th homer of the year, and Jon Kemmer added to the lead with a 2-run homer in the 2nd. A,J, Reed tripled to lead off the 4th and scored on a sac fly from Colin Moran.

Reed drew a walk to begin the 8th, which set the stage for their big inning. Moran joined him on the bases with a walk, and they both advanced a base on a Jio Mier sac bunt. Well, actually, Danry Vásquez replaced Reed on the basepaths. Kemmer was given a free pass to 1st to load the bases. Conrad Gregor was the 2nd casualty of the inning, which put the inning in the hands of Chan-Jong Moon. He came through in a huge way by bringing everyone home with a triple. He came around to score when Brett Phillips provided the cherry with his first Texas League homer. Phillips led the way with a 3-5 night.

Brian Holmes went 5 innings and allowed 3 runs on 5 hits (2-run homer), walked 2, and struck out 7. Travis Ballew worked around a hit to throw a scoreless 6th, striking out 1, and Aaron West finished it off by allowing 2 hits and striking out 2 over the final 3 innings.

Adrian Houser will get the start as the Hooks begin a new series in Frisco. He'll face Frank Lopez at 7:05.

Lancaster was off

The JetHawks will kick off a 4-game series with Stockton at The Hangar tonight at 6:30 Pacific. Keegan Yuhl will face Chris Lamb.

Quad Cities 4, Kane County 3 in 15 innings

W- Ryan Thompson (4-2)
L- Ryan Gebhardt (0-1); a position player

QC home runs: None.

The Banditos managed to outlast the Cougars after 2 7th-inning stretches and nearly 5 hours.

Quad Cities got on the board as Jason Martin hit an RBI groundout and Alex Bregman hit an RBI single. Ramon Laureano doubled to lead off the 6th and scored on a Drew Ferguson double. They were held off the scoreboard for 8 innings while the Cougars forced extra innings. That's not to say that the Bandits went down 1-2-3 for 8 innings in a row; they had a couple of chances. They couldn't capitalize on a bases-loaded, 1-out situation in the 10th and Kristian Trompiz was stranded at 3rd to end the 11th.

Jason Martin hit a 1-out single in the 15th and advanced to 3rd on a passed ball. Bregman was then given a free pass, and then Ramon Laureano was plunked to load the bases. Ferguson came through with a sac fly that turned out to be the difference. Trompiz finished 3-6, while Laureano went 2-6 with a double and a run scored. Bregman was intentionally walked twice, which constituted all the River Bandits' BBs.

Christian Powell allowed a run on 8 hits, walked 1, and fanned 3 in 6.1 innings. Michael Freeman was the first man out; he allowed 2 runs (1 earned, 1 inherited runner charged to him) on 3 hits and struck out 1. Angel Heredia was next; he allowed a hit, walked 4, and struck out 4 in 3 innings. Riley Ferrell walked 2 and struck out 3 over 2.2 scoreless, and Ryan Thompson allowed 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1 in 1.1 innings.

In the series finale, Justin Ferrell will take on Ethan Elias at 6:30.

Tony Nuñez (2 R), Carrasco (RBI single), and Bobby Wernes had 2 hits apiece

W- Alberto Guzman (1-2)
L- Samil De Los Santos (1-2)

Greeneville home runs: None.

The Appy Astros had the tables turned on them as the Blue Jays decided to mount a late uprising of their own. Greeneville responded by putting up 3 in the 9th to cut it to 1, but... no cigar.

Osvaldo Duarte walked to lead off the 1st, stole 2nd, advanced to 3rd on a wild pitch, and scored the first run of the evening on an error. He scored again on a Ford Stainback single in the 3rd. Luis Payano cleared the bases with a double in the bottom of the 9th, but Duarte popped out to become the final casualty of the game. Duarte, who had 2 steals (9), and Randy Cesar both finished 2-4.

Chris Murphy went 3 innings and allowed a hit, walked 1, and struck out 2. Andrew Thome was first; he allowed a run on 3 hits in 2 innings. In his pro debut, Matt Bower struck out 1 in a 1-2-3 6th. Samil De Los Santos allowed 2 runs (1 inherited runner charged to him) on 2 hits, walked 2, and fanned 1. He faced 1 batter in the 8th, who reached base. Alejandro Solarte got 2 outs in the 8th and allowed 3 runs (1 inherited runner charged to him) on 2 hits (2-run homer) and walked 2. Joselo Pinales allowed a hit, walked 2, and struck out 2 in 1.1 innings.
