Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Salt Lake 9, Fresno 7

W- Luis Diaz (1-0)
L- Edison Frias (1-2)
S- Keynan Middleton (2)

Fresno home runs: D.J. Fisher (4, solo in 2nd)

Like the Grizzlies on Monday, the Tacos fell behind early on Tuesday and couldn't quite erase a (more manageable) deficit; they trailed 5-1 after the 4th.

D.J. Fisher put Fresno on the board with a solo homer in the 2nd inning. The Tacos scored twice in the 5th thanks to an Andrew Aplin sac fly and a Colin Moran RBI double. Reid Brignac added an RBI single in the 6th and ripped a 2-run triple in the 8th. Aplin brought him home with a single.

Fisher finished 3-5 on the day, while Tony Kemp (R, SB [4]), Preston Tucker (R), Brignac (3B, 3 RBI, R), and Aplin (2 RBI) all finished with two-hit days.

Edison Frias went 5 innings and allowed 5 runs on 4 hits, walked 4, and struck out 3. Reymin Guduan got 2 outs in the 6th but allowed a couple of runs on 3 hits. Dayan Diaz and Jordan Jankowski both pitched 1.2 innings; Diaz allowed 2 runs (1 inherited runner charged to him) on 3 hits, and Jankowski allowed a sac fly that allowed one of the two runners that he inherited from Diaz to score.

Brian Holmes will start the first of a 4-game series in Reno on Thursday. First pitch is at 6:35 Pacific.

Corpus Christi 4, Midland 3 in 12 innings

W- Andrew Thome (1-0, 1-1 season)
L- Cody Stull (0-1)

CC home runs: Bryan Muñiz (1, solo in 7th), Ramon Laureano (2, walk-off solo in 12th)

The Hooks made up for that debacle on Monday by walking off with the victory on Tuesday.

Dean Deetz started off the evening by allowing 2 hits, walking 1, and striking out 3 over 5 shutout innings. Kent Emanuel tagged in and went 2.2 innings, allowing 3 runs (all in the 6th) on 6 hits (2-run homer), walking 2, and fanning 4. Riley Ferrell walked 3 and struck out 3 over 3 scoreless, and Andrew Thome retired all four RockHounds he faced to get the win; he got a flyball out to end the 11th and three groundouts in the 12th.

Ramon Laureano scored the first run of the evening when Jon Singleton swatted a ground-rule double in the 1st inning. Singleton also hit an RBI single in the 3rd inning. Corpus held a 2-0 lead until the 6th inning when the Hounds took the lead with 3 runs. They wouldn't be down for long, however, as Bryan Muñiz clubbed a solo shot in the 7th to tie the game. The 3-3 deadlock remained until the 12th when Laureano scored the last run of the evening, driving himself in with a home run.

Singleton (2B, 2 RBI, SB) and Jack Mayfield (2B) both finished with 2 hits on the evening. Drew Ferguson went 4-6 with a double and a stolen base (5); he led off the 3rd with that double and scored on Singleton's single.

Rogelio Armenteros takes on Heath Fillmeyer in game 3 of this series. First pitch is at 7:05.

Buies Creek and Winston-Salem was postponed

Due to rain. A doubleheader is scheduled for today with game 1 starting at 11 AM Eastern. Justin Ferrell will take on Max Beatty in game 1, while Alex Winkelman goes up against Kelvis Valerio in game 2.

The north-central part of North Carolina, where Winston-Salem is located, has been dealing with heavy rains over the last few days.

Peoria 9, Quad Cities 5

W- Jordan Hicks (3-0)
L- Dustin Hunt (0-3)

QC home runs: Ronnie Dawson (3, 2-run in 4th)

The Chiefs scored 4 runs in the top of the 2nd, which forced the Banditos to play catch-up all day.

Dustin Hunt couldn't get out of the 2nd inning; he allowed 4 runs (1 inherited runner charged to him) on 3 hits, walked 3, and struck out 1. Edgardo Sandoval came in and threw 3.2 innings; the two runs he allowed came on a homer hit by Ryan McCarvel in the 5th. One of the runs was unearned. and he struck out 2. Reggie Williams was the next man up; in 3 innings, he allowed 2 runs on 4 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1. Lucas Williams allowed a run on 2 hits in the 9th.

Ronnie Dawson put Quad Cities on the board with an RBI single in the 2nd inning and clubbed a 2-run homer in the 4th. The Banditos scored a pair in the 7th on a groundout from Chuckie Robinson and a Marcos Almonte single. Dawson finished 2-4 and extended his hitting streak to 10 games. Almonte also had 2 hits on the day; he's recorded a hit in 6 of the 7 games he's played since joining the River Bandits.

Quad Cities and Peoria will finish the series at 6:35 as Carson LaRue takes on Ronnie Williams.
