Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Tuesday, July 28, 2015

Fresno was off

The Grizzlies will begin a 3-game series in Reno tonight at 7:05 Pacific. Mike Hauschild will take on Jhoulys Chacín.

Corpus Christi 3, San Antonio 2

W- Adrian Houser (1-2, 2-4 season)
L- Brandon Alger (3-4)
S- Juan Minaya (1)

CC home runs: None.

The Hooks were held to 4 hits, but they managed to get even in the series as Adrian Houser had a fine night on the mound.

Houser earned his first Texas League win as he allowed 2 runs on 5 hits (solo homer), walked 1, and struck out 4 in 7 innings of work. Juan Minaya struck out 2 over 2 perfect frames to get his first save of the year.

Brett Phillips put Corpus on the board in the 1st when he scored on an errant pickoff throw. Jon Kemmer scored on a double play in the 2nd to give the Hooks a 2-1 lead. After the Missions tied the game in the 6th, Conrad Gregor promptly un-tied it with an RBI single in the 7th, which proved to be the difference. Kemmer was 1-2 with 2 walks and 2 runs scored.

Chris Devenski will get the start in the series finale. He'll face James Needy at 7:05.

Rancho Cucamonga 9, Lancaster 6

W- Karch Kowalczyk (1-1)
L- Bryan Radziewski (3-4, 4-4 season)

Lancaster home runs: J.D. Davis (15, solo in 7th), D.J. Fisher (13, 19 season; solo in 9th)

The JetHawks led 4-2 after the first third of the game, but the Quakes closed out on a 7-2 run.

James Ramsay put Lancaster on the board with an RBI single in the 2nd inning. Their 3 runs in the 3rd came on 3 RBI doubles hit by J.D. Davis, Marc Wik, and Chase McDonald. Unfortunately, Rancho went on its run afterwards, and all Lancaster could muster up were solo homers from Davis in the 7th and D.J. Fisher in the 9th. Fisher finished 3-5, while Davis and Wik had 2 hits apiece. Alex Bregman, in his first start with the JetHawks, went 0-5. They had a shortage of position players, so Troy Scribner, who normally pitches, served as the DH. He went 0-4. I don't know how long it was since he last swung a bat in an actual game.

Bryan Radziewski went 4.1 innings and allowed 5 runs on 6 hits (solo and 3-run homers), walked 2, and struck out 4. Jordan Mills was the first man out; he allowed 4 runs (1 inherited runner charged to him) on 5 hits (solo homer), walked 1, and struck out 3. Andrew Walter allowed 2 hits and struck out 5 in 2 innings of work.

Keegan Yuhl will take on Chase De Jong in the series finale. First pitch is at 6:30 Pacific.

Quad Cities 11, Beloit 4

W- Christian Powell (3-1)
L- Junior Mendez (3-8)

QC home runs: Bobby Boyd (1, solo in 6th; first pro home run)

The Banditos seized control of this game with a 5-run 5th that broke a 2-2 tie.

Kristian Trompiz put Quad Cities on the board with an RBI double in the 3rd inning and put them in the lead when he scored on a Jason Martin sac fly. Nick Tanielu drove in the first of the 5 runs in the 5th with a sac fly, and Drew Ferguson followed with an RBI single. Jose Fernandez walked to re-load the bases, and Ramon Laureano promptly cleared them with a double. In the 6th, Bobby Boyd hit his first home run as a pro. And, for good measure, Tanielu cleared the bases with a double in the 8th inning. He, Trompiz (2B, RBI, 2 R), and Boyd (solo homer, 3 R) had 2 hits apiece.

Christian Powell allowed 3 runs (2 earned) on 5 hits, walked 2, and struck out 4 in 6 innings of work. Michael Freeman allowed 4 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1 in 2 scoreless, and Jorge Perez allowed a run on a single, walked 3, and struck out 1 in the 9th.

Game 2 of this series will be at 7:00. The Bandits' starter is TBA.

The Appy Astros pounded out 18 hits as they romped to a win in game 1.

Randy Cesar finished 3-4 and opened the scoring with an RBI single in the 1st. Arturo Michelena also finished 3-4; he ripped a 2-run double in the 2nd. He struck again in the 4th with an RBI single. Later in the inning, Cesar smacked a 2-run homer. All 3 of Cesar's hits drove in at least 1 run. He hit an RBI single in the 6th.
