Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Saturday, August 8, 2015

Colin Moran and J.D. Davis continue to be on fire.

Quad Cities continues to mow their competition down.

Fresno 12, Sacramento 2

W- Mike Hauschild (6-3, 11-4 season)
L- Tommy Hanson (0-5)
S- Jake Buchanan (2)

Fresno home runs: Robbie Grossman (4, 3-run in 3rd), Max Stassi (13, solo in 3rd)

The Grizzlies stormed out to an 11-0 lead after 3 innings and cruised to the win.

Mike Hauschild went 6 innings and allowed 2 runs on 6 hits, walked 1, and fanned 8. Jake Buchanan allowed 2 hits and struck out 2 over 3 innings for the save.

Fresno opened up things with a pair of RBI singles from L.J. Hoes and Jon Singleton in the 1st. Singleton's was an infield single... to 1st base. In the 2nd, Jonathan Villar hit an RBI groundout, and Alex Presley added an RBI single. Then, the floodgates opened in the 3rd.

Robbie Grossman's 3-run shot was the big hit in the inning. One batter later, Max Stassi went deep. Nolan Fontana just missed a homer of his own and settled for a triple. He then scored on an error. Matt Duffy capped it all off with a 2-run single. The Grizz got 1 more in the 5th on an RBI single from Tyler White. Everyone in the original starting lineup had a hit. Only Tyler Heineman missed out on the party; had he recorded a hit, every position player who appeared in the game would have had a hit.

The Grizzlies will look for a 5-game sweep tonight as Brady Rodgers takes on Clayton Blackburn at 6:05 Pacific.

Midland 5, Corpus Christi 4

W- Jake Sanchez (10-7)
L- R.J. Alaniz (4-3)
S- Brendan McCurry (1)

CC home runs: Colin Moran 2 (7; 2-run in 6th, solo in 8th)

Colin Moran continued his reign of terror with 2 more homers. That gives him 7, and he's matched his 2014 total in 45 fewer games. Has he unlocked the power?

His first homer came in the 6th and tied the game at 2. He then added a solo shot in the 8th. The other Corpus run came on an RBI single from Teoscar Hernandez in the 9th. Moran (2 HR), Teoscar (2B, RBI, R), and Danry Vásquez (2B, BB) all finished with 2 hits at the top of the Hooks order.

Brian Holmes went 6.2 innings and allowed 2 runs on 4 hits, walked 2, and struck out 8. R.J. Alaniz allowed a 2-run single to Ryon Healy in the 8th that broke the tie. He allowed 2 other hits, walked 1, and struck out 1. Travis Ballew allowed a run on 2 hits and walked 1 in the 9th.

Michael Feliz will be on the mound in the series finale. He'll take on Dillon Overton at 6:05.

High Desert 11, Lancaster 4

W- Reed Garrett (5-3)
L- Bryan Radziewski (3-5, 4-5 season)

Lancaster home runs: J.D. Davis (21, 3-run in 7th)

The JetHawks allowed 7 runs in the 1st, and that mountain proved to be too steep to climb.

Mott Hyde hit an RBI single in the 2nd, and J.D. Davis whacked a 3-run homer in the 7th. That's 5 straight games with a homer for Davis.

Hyde, James Ramsay (SB [11], R), Alex Bregman, and Marc Wik (R) all had 2-hit games.

Rough night for Bryan Radziewski as he allowed 6 runs (3 inherited runners charged to him) on 4 hits and walked 2 while only getting 2 outs in the 1st. Troy Scribner allowed a run of his own 6 hits, walked 2, and struck out 7 in 4.2 innings. Andrew Walter went 2.1 innings and allowed 3 runs on 5 hits (solo homer) and struck out 2. Jordan Mills allowed an unearned run on 2 hits and fanned 3 in 1.1 innings.

Quad Cities 10, Dayton 0

W- Josh James (5-2)
L- Wyatt Strahan (6-9)

QC home runs: Nick Tanielu (5, 2-run in 8th)

The Banditos scored 6 in the bottom of the 8th to blow this game wide open. In the process, they've gotten their 2nd 12-game winning streak of the season. In 7 games this month, they've outscored their opponents 43-5.

Josh James threw 6 shutout innings and allowed 5 hits, walked 2, and struck out 7. Eric Peterson walked 1 and struck out 2 in 2 innings, and Steve Naemark completed the shutout, walking 1 and striking out 1 in the 9th to do so.

Bobby Boyd opened up the scoring with a sac fly in the 3rd, and in the 6th, he scored on a double play. He then drew a bases-loaded walk in the 7th, and Nick Tanielu followed suit.

In the 8th, Luis Reynoso hit an RBI single. Kristian Trompiz then hit into a force out that scored Garrett Stubbs, and an error allowed Ryan Bottger to score as well. Boyd struck again with an RBI single, and Tanielu capped off a fantastic game for the River Bandits with a 2-run shot.

It may be tough to win when only 4 players record hits, but Quad Cities made it work. Boyd (3 RBI, 2 R, BB), Tanielu (2-R homer, 3 RBI, R), and Reynoso (RBI, 2 R) finished with 2 hits apiece. Trompiz also had a hit.

The series finale will be later this afternoon. Brock Dykxhoorn will take on Tejay Antone at 1:15.

Weathersby was first; he allowed 3 hits and struck out 1 over 2 scoreless. Santos walked 2 in his 1.1 innings, and Dorris got the final 2 outs for the save.

The Appy Astros scored 3 in the bottom of the 8th to tie the game at 5... and then Bristol broke the tie with the go-ahead run in the 9th.

Myles Straw tripled to open the Greeneville 1st and scored the first run of the game on an RBI single from Daz Cameron. In the 4th, Ford Stainback hit into a fielder's choice that scored Brauly Mejia. Straw scored the first run in the 8th thanks to an error after a Connor Goedert line out. Mejia followed by ripping an RBI double, and Stainback brought him home with a triple. Mejia finished 3-4 with the RBI double and 2 runs scored, and Daz went 2-5.

Devonte German allowed 4 runs (2 earned) on 7 hits, walked 2, and struck out 1 in 4.1 innings. Erasmo Pinales was the first man out; he allowed a run on 2 hits, walked 2, and struck out 1 in 2.1 innings.
