Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Sunday, August 9, 2015

J.D. Davis is looking to hit all the home runs.

Sacramento 9, Fresno 3

W- Clayton Blackburn (8-3)
L- Brady Rodgers (9-6)

Fresno home runs: None.

The Grizzlies were foiled in their bid to sweep the series as they were down early and never really got into the game.

Their 3 runs all came in the 8th inning as Alex Presley and Joe Sclafani hit RBI singles, and Tyler White smacked an RBI double. Sclafani and Nolan Fontana both finished 2-4.

Brady Rodgers allowed 7 runs (5 earned, 1 inherited runner charged to him) on 8 hits (solo homer), walked 2, and struck out 4 in 5.1 innings. Luis Cruz was the first man out of the bullpen; he got the final 2 outs of the 6th inning, 1 via strikeout, but not before he allowed a 2-run homer and a solo homer. 1 of the runs on the 2-run shot was charged to Rodgers. Jordan Jankowski worked around a walk to throw a scoreless 7th, striking out 2. Kevin Chapman allowed a hit and fanned 1 in a scoreless 8th, and James Hoyt threw a 1-2-3 9th.

After a day off (all the full-season affiliates are off today), the Grizzlies will have a getaway roadtrip as they'll play 4 in Albuquerque beginning on Tuesday.

Midland 8, Corpus Christi 3

W- Kris Hall (3-0)
L- Kyle Westwood (7-6)

CC home runs: Jon Kemmer (16, solo in 8th)

The RockHounds scored all 8 of their runs in the final 3 innings to take the series.

The Hooks bullpen couldn't get the job done, which spoiled a fine outing from Michael Feliz, who allowed 3 hits, walked 3, and struck out 8 over 6 shutout innings. Reymin Guduan came out for the 7th, but he allowed 2 runs on 3 hits and walked 1 while only getting 1 out. Kyle Westwood went 1.2 innings and allowed 3 runs (2 earned) on 4 hits and walked 2 in 1.2 innings. Vince Velasquez got 2 outs in the 9th, but he allowed a 3-run homer to Wade Kirkland. He walked 1 and struck out 1. Alfredo Gonzalez walked 1 and got the final out of the 9th.

Roberto Peña opened up the scoring in the 2nd by drawing a bases-loaded walk. A.J. Reed added an RBI single in the 7th, and Jon Kemmer smacked a solo homer in the 8th, his 16th of the season. Reed and Kemmer had 3 hits apiece.

The Hooks will tour Arkansas for the final time this season, starting tomorrow in Little Rock.

Lancaster 8, High Desert 0

W- Keegan Yuhl (3-0, 4-0 season)
L- Trey Lambert (5-3)
S- Michael Freeman (1)

Lancaster home runs: Chase McDonald (21, solo in 4th), J.D. Davis (22, 2-run in 5th)

The JetHawks got brilliant performances on the mound from Keegan Yuhl and Michael Freeman, and J.D. Davis continues to send balls out of the park.

Yuhl allowed 3 hits, walked 1, and struck out 5 over 6 shutout innings, and Freeman finished it off by whiffing 4 over 3 perfect frames.

Sean McMullen opened up the scoring with an RBI double in the 3rd inning. Later, J.D. Davis added a 2-run single. Chase McDonald's 21st homer of the season was a solo shot with 1 out in the 4th. In the 5th, Davis extended his home run streak to 6 games with a 2-run homer. Alex Bregman hit an RBI single in the 6th that extended his hitting streak to 7 games, and finally, McMullen scored on a wild pitch in the 8th after hitting a triple to lead off the inning.

Sean McMullen (2B, 3B, RBI, 3 R), J.D. Davis (2-run homer, 4 RBI), and Mott Hyde (2B, R) had 2 hits apiece.

The JetHawks will begin a 3-game set in Inland Empire on Tuesday.

Dayton 3, Quad Cities 1

W- Tejay Antone (6-9)
L- Brock Dykxhoorn (6-4)
S- Michael Sullivan (1)

QC home runs: None.

The Banditos were foiled in their bid to sweep the series, and their 12-game winning streak fell by the wayside.

Jason Martin scored the only Quad Cities run of the afternoon when Nick Tanielu grounded into a force out in the 1st inning. After that, the Bandits were kept off the scoreboard for the final 8 innings. Their other significant scoring opportunity came in the 4th, when they had the bases loaded with nobody out in the 4th. Unfortunately, they failed to convert.

Brock Dykxhoorn allowed 2 runs on 6 hits (solo homer), walked 1, and struck out 8 over 7 solid innings of work. Zach Davis went 2 innings, and the only hit and run he yielded was a solo homer hit by Cory Thompson in the 8th. He struck out 1.

Quad Cities will head to Fort Wayne to begin a 3-game series with the TinCaps tomorrow.

Tri-City 6, Lowell 3

W- Alex Winkelman (5-0, 7-1 season)
L- Austin Glorius (0-1)
S- Zac Grotz (3, 4 season)

TC home runs: Hector Roa (4, 10 season; solo in 4th), Dex McCall (3, 2-run in 4th)

The ValleyCats took the first of 3 as they got 2 in the 8th to get a little separation after the Spinners made it a 1-run game.

Hector Roa put Tri-City on the board when he whacked a homer to begin the bottom of the 4th. Dex McCall followed with a 2-run homer that put the ValleyCats in the lead. In the 6th, Tony Nuñez ripped an RBI double after Bobby Wernes had gotten on base with a double. Brooks Marlow added an RBI double in the 8th, and later in the inning, Johnny Sewald scored the final run of the evening on a balk.

Roa (2B, HR), Wernes (2B, 2 R), Brooks Marlow (2 2B, RBI), and Pat Porter (R) all finished with 2-hit games.

Alex Winkelman went 5 innings and allowed 2 runs on 5 hits, walked 1, and struck out 3. Rogelio Armenteros tagged in for 3 innings, and the only run he allowed came on a solo homer hit by Austin Rei in the 7th. He allowed 2 other hits, walked 2, and struck out 2. Zac Grotz struck out 1 in a 1-2-3 9th for the save.

Harold Arauz will get the start in game 2 of this series. He'll face Jose Almonte at 7:00 Eastern.

Greeneville 8, Bristol 1

W- Matt Bower (1-0)
L- Logan Sendelbach (0-3)

Greeneville home runs: Rodrigo Ayarza (1, 3-run in 8th)

The Appy Astros cruised to a win on Sunday to take the series.

Osvaldo Duarte scored the first run of the late afternoon on an error in the 3rd that allowed Connor Goedert to reach. They ended up scoring 3 more in the inning as Brauly Mejia ripped an RBI double, Kevin Martir added an RBI groundout, and Kyle Tucker smacked another RBI double. In the 5th, Mejia added an RBI single to his ledger, and Rodrigo Ayarza capped it off with a 3-run homer in the 8th.

Tucker finished 3-4 and also stole a base (2, 5 season). Mejia's 2 hits both produced a run, and Daz Cameron singled, scored a run, and stole yet another base (6, 18 season).

Makay Nelson and Matt Bower both threw 3 scoreless innings. Nelson allowed 3 hits and struck out 1, while Bower allowed 2 hits and fanned 3. Andrew Thome allowed 2 hits and struck out 1 in 2 innings, and the Pirates spoiled the shutout when Henrry Rosario hit a solo homer off of Samil De Los Santos to begin the 9th. That was the only hit that Samil allowed in the frame, and he ended up striking out the next 3 batters to finish the game.

Next up on the docket is a 4-game series with Elizabethton. There's a doubleheader on Monday to make up a game between these two teams that was originally scheduled for July 3. Game 1 is scheduled for 6:00 Eastern.
