Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Tuesday, August 18, 2015

It got a bit crazy in Fresno.

Fresno 14, New Orleans 12

W- Jake Buchanan (5-3)
L- Blake Logan (0-3)
S- Jordan Jankowski (2)

Fresno home runs: Tyler Heineman (1, 2-run in 4th)

The Grizzlies swept the Zephyrs out of the Central Valley in what was probably their wildest game of the year. They took control (or so they thought) with a 7-run 3rd that gave them an 8-3 lead. When New Orleans responded with 3 in the top of the 4th, they put up 5 in the bottom of the 4th.

Tyler White continued his rampage as he logged another 3-hit night. His first 2 hits were RBI doubles in the 1st and the 3rd. His other hit was a 2-run triple in the 4th inning.

No words, really.


Mark Appel had a rough outing, which was a departure from his prior outstanding performances. He allowed 9 runs (6 earned) on 12 hits (3-run homer), walked 2, and struck out 3 in 4.2 innings. However, the offense and the bullpen picked him up. Jake Buchanan allowed 2 hits and fanned 3 over 2.1 scoreless. Tyson Perez pitched a 1-2-3 8th. Kevin Chapman allowed 3 runs on 4 hits (2-run homer) and walked 1 while only getting 1 out in the 9th. Jordan Jankowski was able to secure the win by getting the final 2 outs of the game. He walked 1 and struck out 1.

The Grizzlies' homestand concludes with 4 against Round Rock beginning tonight at 7:05 Pacific. In game 1, Asher Wojciechowski will face Anthony Ranaudo.

Corpus Christi 8, Arkansas 4

W- Edison Frias (1-1, 9-5 season)
L- Chris Ellis (5-3)

CC home runs: Teoscar Hernandez (16, solo in 1st), Jon Kemmer (17, 3-run in 1st)

The Hooks welcomed the Travelers to Corpus Christi by doubling them up. 

Teoscar Hernandez and Jon Kemmer set the tone early with their blasts in the 1st inning. A.J. Reed finished 4-4 with an RBI single in the 3rd and scored 2 runs. Conrad Gregor doubled to lead off the 4th. He advanced to 3rd as Teoscar grounded into a force out. Teoscar then stole 2nd (29), and the errant throw down to 2nd allowed him and Gregor to score. Jio Mier added an RBI single in the 5th. Kemmer finished 3-4, while Teoscar hit a double to go with his homer. He scored 3 runs.

Lance McCullers, in what appears to be a tune-up outing, went 3 innings and allowed an unearned run, a single, walked 3, and struck out 5. Edison Frias went 4 innings and allowed 3 runs (all on a 3-run homer) on 4 hits and fanned 6. Chris Cotton allowed 2 hits and struck out 1 over 2 scoreless.

Chris Devenski will be on the mound tonight. He'll face Sean Newcomb at 7:05.

Lancaster 8, Inland Empire 4

W- Austin Chrismon (6-3, 10-4 season)
L- Victor Alcantara (6-11)

Lancaster home runs: Ronnie Mitchell (12, 2-run in 4th)

Astros affiliates made it 2-0 over the Angels' affiliates as the JetHawks doubled up the 66ers.

They took flight with a 6-run 4th. Chase McDonald led off the inning with a walk, and one batter later, Ronnie Mitchell sent one out to put Lancaster on the board and in the lead. Later in the frame, Jamie Ritchie scored on a wild pitch. Marc Wik added an RBI groundout, James Ramsay ripped an RBI triple, and Alex Bregman finished off the scoring in the 4th with a sac fly. Mitchell struck again in the 7th with an RBI double, and Ramsay added an RBI single to his ledger in the 8th.

Sean McMullen went 3-4 with 2 runs scored and a stolen base (1, 7 season). Ramsay (3B, 2 RBI, R), Bregman (2B, RBI, R, SB [5, 10 season]), Mitchell (2B, 2-run homer, 3 RBI) all had 2-hit nights.

Austin Chrismon went 6 innings and allowed 4 runs (3 earned, 1 inherited runner charged to him) on 5 hits (solo homer) and struck out 3. Michael Freeman walked 2 and struck out 2 in 2.2 innings, and Andrew Walter got the final out of the game via strikeout.

The JetHawks will look for a huge series sweep as Akeem Bostick takes on Ryan Etsell at 6:30 Pacific.

Quad Cities and Wisconsin was postponed

Due to rain. Doubleheader begins at 6, with Justin Ferrell facing Angel Ventura. In game 2, Dean Deetz will take on Kodi Medeiros.

The North team triumphed 4-2. Dex McCall was named the game's MVP as he hit a 2-run double in the 1st and drew a walk. Bobby Wernes grounded into a force out in the 1st inning. Pat Porter entered the game in the 5th and popped out in foul territory in his only at-bat in the 7th.

Dylan James allowed a solo homer to Edmundo Sosa (who took Solarte deep in the 6th), which was the only hit he allowed in the 7th. He also walked 1. Joselo Pinales walked 2 and fanned 2 in 2 scoreless innings.
