Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Thursday, May 5, 2016

Welcome back, Alex Bregman.


Reno 3, Fresno 2

W- Tyler Wagner (1-3)
L- Mike Hauschild (2-3)
S- Silvino Bracho (4)

Fresno home runs: None.

The Grizzlies' comeback fell just short, and as a result, they had to settle for the split.

Colin Moran scored Fresno's first run of the day after Eury Perez grounded into a force out in the 7th. That was all that the Grizz could muster up after getting the first three batters of the inning on board. Jon Singleton hit a sac fly in the 9th. Tony Kemp finished 2-4.

Mike Hauschild allowed 3 runs on 7 hits and fanned 6 in 5.2 innings. Kevin Chapman was the first man out; he went 0.2 innings (final out of the 6th, first out of the 7th) and allowed a hit, walked 1, and struck out 1. Jandel Gustave allowed a hit and struck out 2 over 1.2 scoreless, and Edwar Cabrera worked around a walk to throw a scoreless 9th, striking out 1.

Tommy Shirley will take the mound for Fresno tonight as they'll be spending the weekend in El Paso. He'll take on Jeremy Guthrie in the first of 4 games; first pitch is at 7:05 Mountain.

Midland 13, Corpus Christi 0

W- Raúl Alcantara (2-1)
L- Cy Sneed (1-1)
S- Ben Bracewell (1)

CC home runs: None.

Forgettable game all around.

Alex Bregman went 1-4 in his return to the Corpus lineup; that hit was a double. Jack Mayfield's single to begin the 8th broke up a no-hit bid.

The pitching staff struggled, and honestly, I'd really like to leave it at that. Michael Freeman worked around a hit to throw a scoreless 9th; he was the only Hooks pitcher to emerge from this bloodbath unscathed.

In the series finale, Edison Frias will start for Corpus. He'll take on Corey Walter at 7.

Inland Empire 4, Lancaster 1

W- Isaac Anderson (1-3)
L- Trent Thornton (1-1)
S- Eduardo Paredes (2)

Lancaster home runs: None.

The JetHawks had to settle for the split as the 66ers got the jump on Trent Thornton in the early going.

Ramon Laureano's RBI double in the 4th was Lancaster's only scoring play. Alejandro Garcia went 2-4.

Trent Thornton went 6 innings and allowed 4 runs (3 earned) on 6 hits, walked 2, and struck out 5. Andrew Walter threw 2 scoreless, allowing a hit, walking 1, and striking out 2.

Lancaster will be hosting Visalia for the weekend. Brock Dykxhoorn will start the series opener, and he'll go up against Brad Keller. First pitch is at 6:35 Pacific.

Lansing 1. Quad Cities 0

W- Jon Harris (1-0)
L- Sebastian Kessay (1-3)
S- Dusty Isaacs (4)

QC home runs: None.

The River Bandits held the Lugnuts to one hit..... and lost. They had one of those games that can really make you hate baseball sometimes.

Johnny Sewald went 3-4 with a stolen base (11), while Connor Goedert and Aaron Mizell (2B) had 2 hits apiece. Dex McCall tripled with 2 outs in the 9th, but he was stranded there to end the game.

Sebastian Kessay allowed the only run of the game in the 3rd; it came on a double play. He walked 5 and struck out 4 in 2 innings, giving him one of the weirder lines that we'll see this season. Zac Person went 4 innings and allowed a hit, walked 3, and struck out 5. Adam Whitt walked 1 and fanned 2 over 2 scoreless.

Kevin McCanna gets the start in game 2 of this series. He'll face Francisco Rios at 6:05.
