Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Saturday, July 25, 2015

Saturday night.... not entirely all right in the Astros' system.

Tacoma 8, Fresno 7

W- Logan Bawcom (2-1)
L- Tyson Perez (1-3)

Fresno home runs: Nolan Fontana (4, 2-run in 4th)

The Grizzlies suffered a bullpen meltdown late and ended up walking off with a loss.

Mark Appel had a solid outing as he allowed a run on 4 hits, walked 3, and struck out 4 in 6 innings of work. However, he did not factor into the decision as the bullpen was unable to hold a 5-1 lead. James Hoyt allowed a run on 3 hits and struck out 2 in the 7th. Kevin Chapman allowed 5 runs (2 earned, 2 inherited runners charged to him) on 4 hits and only got 1 out in the 8th. Tyson Perez got the final 2 outs of the 8th, 1 via strikeout, but not before the Rainiers took the lead. Fresno tied the game with 2 in the 9th and he came out for the bottom of the 9th, but Jabari Blash greeted him with a walk-off solo shot.

Nolan Fontana put Fresno on the board and in the lead with a 2-run shot in the 4th inning. Tyler White ripped an RBI double in the 5th, and in the 7th, Robbie Grossman hit an RBI double of his own, and White struck once more with an RBI single. The Grizzlies found themselves down after that nightmare 8th inning, but they got back into it in the 9th as Matt Duffy drew a bases-loaded walk and Joe Sclafani hit a sac fly to tie the game.

White led the way with a 3-5 night. Grossman finished 2-5, while Jonathan Villar walked twice, scored twice, and stole a base (13).

The Grizz will be back at it this afternoon as Brett Oberholtzer takes on Jordan Pries. First pitch is at 1:35 Pacific.

Corpus Christi 7, Frisco 6 in 10 innings

W- Jandel Gustave (3-1)
L- David Martinez (2-5)

CC home runs: None.

The Hooks erased a 4-0 deficit, and when the Roughriders retook the lead, they forced extra innings and won it in the first extra frame.

They put up 5 in the 6th to take a 5-4 lead as A.J. Reed and Alfredo Gonzalez hit RBI singles. Danry Vásquez drew a bases-loaded walk, and Jio Mier followed with a 2-run single. Brett Phillips was called out on strikes to end the Hooks' half of the 6th, which I guess didn't sit too well with Hooks hitting coach Dan Radison, and he was eventually given his marching orders by home plate umpire Nestor Ceja. Phillips ended up scoring the tying run in the 9th when Jack Mayfield grounded into a double play. Reed struck out to end the inning, and apparently Ceja was intent on ejecting everyone in a Corpus Christi uniform. Reed took umbrage at a call he didn't like during the at-bat, and he too was tossed. Ceja decided to toss Hooks skipper Rodney Linares for good measure, too.

Colin Moran smacked a triple to lead off the 10th and scored on a sac fly from Alfredo. That run turned out to be the difference. Jio finished 3-5 with a steal (9) and the 2-run single, while Brett Phillips (2B, R) and Teoscar Hernandez (BB, R) had 2 hits apiece from the top of the order. Moran scored 2 runs.

Kyle Westwood went 5.1 innings and allowed 4 runs (3 earned) on 5 hits (2-run homer), walked 1, and struck out 6. Chris Cotton faced 4 batters after coming on in the 6th and failed to retire any of them. He allowed 2 runs on 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1, but that strikeout victim reached base. Aaron West got the final 2 outs of the 6th and threw a scoreless 7th inning, allowing a hit and fanning 2. Jandel Gustave allowed a hit, walked 1, and whiffed 4 over 3 scoreless for the win.

Josh Hader, who's now sporting a silver medal from the Pan Am Games, returns to the Hooks rotation tonight as he takes on Jose Leclerc. First pitch is at 6:05.

Stockton 5, Lancaster 3

W- Dan Mengden (3-1, 7-2 season)
L- Edison Frias (8-4)

Lancaster home runs: J.D. Davis (13, solo in 5th)

Dan Mengden shut down.... the JetHawks. They only had 3 hits in this game.

For 4.2 innings, they couldn't reach base, but J.D. Davis ended that by taking him deep for a solo shot in the 5th. That homer was the only hit that Mengden allowed in 5 innings, and he struck out 8. Ronnie Mitchell hit an RBI groundout in the 7th, and James Ramsay hit an infield single in the 8th, and on the ensuing error, Marc Wik scored.

Edison Frias went 5.2 innings and allowed 4 runs on 6 hits (3-run homer), walked 3, and struck out 6. Albert Minnis had an inherited runner charged to him in 1.1 innings. He allowed a double, walked 3, and struck out 2. Jordan Mills allowed 2 hits and fanned 2 in 1.2 innings.

In the series finale, Austin Chrismon will face Raúl Alcantara. First pitch is at 5:00 Pacific.

Burlington 4, Quad Cities 3

W- Austin Robichaux (8-4)
L- Elieser Hernandez (0-1, 0-2 season)
S- Eduardo Paredes (18)

QC home runs: Nick Tanielu (3, 2-run in 8th)

The Banditos got their bats going late, but... no cigar.

Quad Cities had the bases loaded in the 1st but came away empty-handed. Drew Ferguson scored the River Bandits' first run of the evening when Garrett Stubbs grounded into a double play in the 7th. Nick Tanielu brought them to within 1 with a 2-run shot in the 8th, his 3rd homer of the year. Ferguson finished 2-3.

Elieser Hernandez allowed 4 runs on 9 hits (2-run homer), walked 1, and struck out 3 in 4.1 innings. Ryan Thompson allowed a hit in 2.2 scoreless, and Riley Ferrell struck out 1 in a 1-2-3 8th.

Mr. Gold Medalist, Brock Dykxhoorn, will be on the mound in the series finale. He'll take on Jake Jewell at 2:00.

Tri-City 5, Batavia 4

W- Alex Winkelman (2-0, 4-1 season)
L- Kyle Keller (0-2)

TC home runs: None.

The ValleyCats got their bats going late and turned a 4-1 deficit into a win.

Kolbey Carpenter put Tri-City on the board with an RBI single in the 2nd. Aaron Mizell whacked an RBI triple in the 6th, and then he reached on an error that allowed Johnny Sewald to score in the 7th inning. Speaking of Sewald, he put the ValleyCats in front with a 2-run single in the 8th inning. He had a stolen base (16) to go along with his big hit. Pat Porter finished 2-4 with a run scored.

Harold Arauz allowed 4 runs on 7 hits (2-run homer), walked 2, and fanned 6 in 4.1 innings. He left 2 runners on for Jacob Dorris, who got the final 2 outs of the 5th without incident. Alex Winkelman tagged in and threw 4 scoreless, allowing just 2 hits while getting 7 whiffs.

Ralph Garza will face Jordan Holloway in the series finale. This game is just getting underway.

Burlington 3, Greeneville 1 in 10 innings

W- Jacob Bodner (1-0)
L- Joselo Pinales (0-2)

Greeneville home runs: None.

The Appy Astros tied the game in the bottom of the 9th... only to see the Royals score 2 in the first extra frame to re-take the lead. Ugh.

Down to their last out, Justin Garcia sent a ball right back up the middle to tie the game at 1. Ford Stainback and Randy Cesar (2B) had 2 hits apiece.

Devonte German went 4 innings and allowed a run on 3 hits and struck out 1. Erasmo Pinales allowed 4 hits, walked 2, and struck out a career-high tying 7 over 4 scoreless. Joselo Pinales allowed 2 runs (both in the 10th) on 6 hits, walked 1, and struck out 2 in 2 innings.

Greeneville will look to avoid the sweep as Junior Garcia will take on Julio Pinto at 2:00 Eastern.

DSL Rays 7, DSL Astros Blue 6

W- Angel Felipe (1-0)
L- Robert Corniel (0-1)
S- Marlon Constante (3)

Blue home runs: None.

The Blue team squandered a 6-2 lead.

Cristopher Luciano put them on the board with an RBI double in the 2nd inning. He finished 2-3 and struck again in the 3rd with a 2-run single, and then Orlando Marquez scored on a wild pitch. Luciano eventually scored on a passed ball. Marquez hit a sac fly in the 5th.

Jorge Guzman allowed 2 unearned runs on 5 hits, walked 3, and struck out 2 in 4 innings.

DSL Cardinals 6, DSL Astros Orange 1

W- Ronald Medrano (3-1)
L- Cesar Rosado (2-2)

Orange home runs: None.

The Orange team got on the board first, but it was all Cardinals afterwards.

Hector Martinez hit a single in the 4th and on the ensuing error, Randy Vasquez scored the first run of the game.

Bryan Abreu went 4.1 innings and allowed a run on 3 hits, walked 3, and struck out 3.
