Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Monday, July 27, 2015

Let's play 2 in Greeneville!

Tacoma 11, Fresno 10

W- Tyler Olson (2-3)
L- Jason Stoffel (3-2)
S- Tony Zych (1)

Fresno home runs: Domingo Santana (16, solo in 1st)

The Grizzlies trailed 8-3 after 2 innings and entered the 7th down 9-3. They proceeded to scored 7 runs in the inning to take the lead.... and then the Rainiers scored 2 in the 8th to re-take the lead. There was an apparent protest, but Fresno manager Tony DeFrancesco never formally filed the protest. Turns out that Tony Zych, who pitched the 9th for Tacoma, was not on the lineup card, but on the active roster. Clerical error, I guess.

Everyone in the Fresno lineup had a hit, led by Andrew Aplin, who finished 4-4 with a 2-run single in the 7th. He hit a single in the 2nd that scored Tony Kemp, but Kemp scored because an error occurred. Domingo Santana (solo HR, 2 R) and Kemp (2-run 3B, 2 R) both went 3-4. Robbie Grossman went 2-5 with a double and an RBI infield single in that big 7th inning. In fact, everyone in the Fresno lineup scored a run except for Tyler White, who hit an RBI single in the 1st to open the scoring.

Brady Rodgers went 2 innings and allowed 8 runs on 8 hits (3-run homer), walked 1, and struck out 2. Luis Cruz was the first man out; he allowed a run on a solo homer to Jabari Blash in the 5th. Cruz allowed 2 other hits, walked 3, and fanned 2 in 3.1 innings. Jason Stoffel had 2 inherited runners charged to him in 2 innings and struck out 1. Those 2 runs scored in the 8th because of 2 wild pitches from James Hoyt, and one of those wild pitches came on an intentional walk situation. Hoyt got the final 2 outs of the 8th, but the damage was done. He allowed a hit, walked 1, and fanned 1.

The Grizzlies will continue their roadtrip tomorrow in Reno.

San Antonio 13, Corpus Christi 7

W- Bryce Morrow (2-2)
L- Brian Holmes (4-5, 6-6 season)

CC home runs: A.J. Reed (4, 27 season; solo in 4th)

This game started out well enough for the Hooks as they led 4-0 after 3 innings, but the Missions turned everything upside down with an 8-run 4th inning.

Every position player who appeared in the game for the Hooks reached base, including Jed Lowrie, who went 1-5 with a run scored. Brett Phillips and Jon Kemmer had 2 hits apiece. A.J. Reed homered for the 2nd consecutive night; this one was a solo shot in the 4th, giving him 27 on the year.

The pitching staff struggled, and I'd like to leave it at that.

Adrian Houser will be on the mound for Corpus Christi tonight. He'll take on Casey Kelly at 7:05.

Lancaster 6, Rancho Cucamonga 5

W- Akeem Bostick (2-3, 5-4 season)
L- Brock Stewart (2-3)
S- Tyler Brunnemann (3)

Lancaster home runs: Sean McMullen (1, 6 season; solo in 2nd), J.D. Davis (14, 3-run in 3rd)

The JetHawks built a 6-1 lead after 3 innings, then saw it whittle away. However, the bullpen kept the Quakes at bay.

J.D. Davis and Sean McMullen were responsible for driving in all 6 JetHawks runs. Well, Davis shouldered the load. He opened the scoring with a 2-run double in the 1st and then whacked a 3-run homer in the 3rd inning. In between those hits, Sean McMullen hit his first homer in the California League in his first at-bat at the level in the 2nd inning. Davis, Jamie Ritchie (2B, 2 R), and James Ramsay (SB [8], R) had 2 hits apiece. Alex Bregman came on as a defensive replacement and went 0-1.

Akeem Bostick allowed 4 runs on 7 hits, walked 1, and struck out 3 in 5 innings. This was his first start in The Hangar. Troy Scribner went 2 innings and allowed a run, a double, walked 4, and struck out 2. Tyler Brunnemann threw 2 scoreless, allowing a hit, walking 1, and striking out 3.

In game 2 of this series, Bryan Radziewski will take on Jeff Brigham. First pitch is at 6:30 Pacific.

Quad Cities was off

The River Bandits are in Beloit tonight to begin a series. Christian Powell will take on Junior Mendez at 7:00.

Tri-City was off

The ValleyCats will welcome the West Virginia Black Bears (formerly known as the Jamestown Jammers) to Joe Bruno Stadium for 3 beginning tonight at 7:00 Eastern. In game 1, Rogelio Armenteros will face Dario Agrazal.

Game 1: Greeneville 4, Kingsport 1

W- Chris Murphy (1-0)
L- Harol Gonzalez (1-2)

Greeneville home runs: Arturo Michelena (1, solo in 6th), Justin Garcia (1, 2-run in 6th)

The Appy Astros took game 1 behind fine pitching performances from Makay Nelson and Chris Murphy.

It hasn't been a great start to Makay Nelson's career, but he delivered his best outing yet as he threw 3 perfect innings and struck out 1 on his 21st birthday. Here's hoping that it's a sign of better things to come for him. Chris Murphy allowed a run on 6 hits and struck out 1 over the final 4 innings.

Luis Payano broke a scoreless tie with a sac fly in the 5th. Michelena and Garcia tacked on 3 more runs with their home runs in the 6th inning. Ford Stainback finished 2-3.

Game 2: Kingsport 2, Greeneville 1

W- Witt Haggard (2-1)
L- Cris Santamaria (2-1)

Greeneville home runs: None.

The Appy Astros had to settle for a split in the twinbill as the K-Mets got 1 in the 7th to break a 1-1 tie.

Ford Stainback grounded into a force out that allowed Luis Payano to score in the 3rd inning. Payano finished 2-2, and he's gotten himself going at the plate as of late.

Andrew Thome allowed a run on 4 hits and fanned 3 in 3 innings. Matt Bower was the first man out and he struck out 2 over 2 perfect innings. Cris Santamaria allowed the go-ahead run on a single with 2 outs in the 7th. He walked 1 and struck out 2 in 2 innings.

Jose Hernandez will start the first game of a 3-game set in Bristol. First pitch is at 7:00 Eastern.

GCL Astros 4, GCL Yankees2 0 in 6 innings

W- Moreno Polanco (1-1)
L- Daris Vargas (2-2)

GCL home runs: None.

Moreno Polanco and Carlos Hiraldo combined to throw a rain-shortened no-hitter in Kissimmee.

Polanco walked 3 and struck out 3 over 5 shutout innings, and Hiraldo struck out 1 in a 1-2-3 6th.

Their 4 runs came in the 4th. Vicente Sanchez hit a sac fly, Miguelangel Sierra scored on an error, and then Kyle Tucker hit an RBI single. To top it all off, Connor MacDonald ripped an RBI double. Tucker finished 2-3. Daz Cameron stole 2 bases (11).

DSL Phillies 6, DSL Astros Blue 3

W- Oscar Marcelino (1-1)
L- Felipe Tejada (1-3)
S- Steiner Carmona (4)

Blue home runs: None.

The Phillies mounted a late uprising to take control of this game.

Cristopher Luciano went 3-5 with a double and a run scored. Angel Tejeda went 2-3. Wilson Amador scored the first run of the day on an error in the 1st inning. Oscar Campos had an RBI single in the 3rd, and Ozziel Sanchez-Galan hit a sac fly in the 8th.

Jose Ramos allowed a hit, walked 2, and struck out 3 over 5 shutout innings.

DSL Astros Orange 12, DSL Mariners2 11

W- Harlen Florencio (1-0)
L- Raul Pedie (6-1)
S- Yan De La Cruz (2)

Orange home runs: Juan Fuente (2, 2-run in 1st), Felix Lucas (3, 3-run in 8th)

The Orange team trailed 10-6 heading into the bottom of the 8th, but they put up 6 in the inning to take the lead again. That's the DSL for you...

Alejandro Garcia finished 4-5, a home run shy of the cycle. His triple cleared the bases in the 8th inning. Hector Martinez and Brandon Benavente had 2 hits apiece.

Angelo Serrano was the first reliever to appear; he allowed a hit, walked 2, and struck out 3 in 2.2 innings. Yan De La Cruz got the final 2 outs of the game.
