Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Wednesday, May 17, 2017

Nashville 11, Fresno 6

W- Jharel Cotton (1-0)
L- David Martinez (1-5)

Fresno home runs: Colin Moran (5, solo in 2nd), Tyler White (3, 3-run in 4th)

A 7-run 4th from the Sounds doomed the Tacos. Fresno has lost every game they've played as the Tacos so far.

David Martinez got roughed up... and I think some things are better left unsaid. Tyson Perez was the first man out of the bullpen and went 1.2 innings; the two runs he allowed came on a homer hit by Jaycob Brugman in the 5th. Perez allowed 2 other hits, walked 1, and struck out 1. Reymin Guduan allowed 2 hits and struck out 4 over 2 scoreless. Aaron West and Andrew Aplin both pitched a scoreless inning; West allowed 2 hits and fanned 2 in the 8th, while Aplin worked around a walk to throw a scoreless 9th, striking out 1.

Colin Moran put the Tacos on the board with a solo shot in the 2nd inning. Tyler White pulled three runs back in the 4th when he clubbed a homer. Fresno got a pair in the 9th on a couple of RBI doubles from A.J. Reed and Juan Centeno, who extended his hitting streak to 15 games. He, Tony Kemp, and Teoscar Hernandez all finished with 2 hits on the night.

Game 3 of this series will start at 12:05 Pacific. David Paulino will make his second appearance of the year and he'll take on Daniel Gossett.

Corpus Christi 4, San Antonio 1

W- Kyle Smith (1-1)
L- Enyel de los Santos (2-1)
S- Andrew Thome (1, 2 season)

CC home runs: Jon Singleton (7, solo in 4th), J.D. Davis (8, solo in 5th)

The Hooks got some crucial insurance runs in the 9th to take game 2 of this iteration of the I-37 Series.

Jon Singleton opened the scoring with a solo blast in the 4th inning, and J.D. Davis smacked one of his own in the 5th. He added an RBI double to his ledger in the 9th and came around to score on a single from Ramon Laureano. Davis was the only player in the Corpus lineup with a multi-hit game.

Kyle Smith allowed a run on 6 hits and struck out 4 in 5 innings of work. Carlos Hiraldo and Andrew Thome both pitched 2 scoreless innings; Hiraldo allowed 2 hits, walked 2, and struck out 3, while Thome allowed 2 hits and fanned 2 to get the save.

Kent Emanuel will face Brett Kennedy in game 3. First pitch is at 7:05.

Buies Creek 5, Myrtle Beach 1

W- Hector Perez (2-1, 3-2 season)
L- Adbert Alzolay (3-1)
S- Yohan Ramirez (1)

BC home runs: Jason Martin (6, 2-run in 1st)

Hector Perez turned in his best outing of the year and Yohan Ramirez shut the door as the Carolina Stros have taken the first two games in a four-game set in the Grand Strand.

Perez has had some issues with walks this year but this was his first walk-free appearance. He threw 6 shutout innings, allowing 5 hits and striking out 7. The Pelicans spoiled the shutout with a run against Ramirez in the 9th, but he managed to pull himself together to finish the game. In 3 innings, he allowed that run on 3 hits, walked 1, and struck out 3.

Myles Straw walked to lead off the game and came around to score when Jason Martin launched a 2-run homer to open the scoring. Buies Creek got 2 more in the 2nd as Arturo Michelena smacked a 2-run double. The Astros' last scoring play of the evening came in the 8th when Eduardo de Oleo hit an RBI infield single.

Brett Adcock will look to get himself back on track after a rough introduction to the Carolina League. He'll go up against Thomas Hatch at 7:05 Eastern.

Quad Cities 8, Burlington 1

W- Lucas Williams (1-1)
L- Joe Gatto (2-3)

QC home runs: Yordan Alvarez (1, solo in 8th)

The Banditos improved to .500 as they knocked the Bees around again.

Osvaldo Duarte walked to lead off the bottom of the 1st. He then stole 2nd and scored the first run of the day on a Chuckie Robinson triple. Yordan Alvarez had a nice outing; he ripped an RBI double in the 2nd and then scored on a sac fly from Duarte. Rodrigo Ayarza followed with an RBI single. Carmen Benedetti ripped an RBI double in the 4th, and Robinson added an RBI single to his ledger in the 7th. Alvarez capped it off with a solo blast in the 8th, his first homer of the year.

The bottom third of the Quad Cities lineup, which consisted of Alvarez, Taylor Jones, and Benedetti, all finished with two hits on the afternoon and accounted for all of the doubles the club hit and 5 of the 8 runs they scored. Robinson also finished with two hits; he now has a 6-game hitting streak.

Dustin Hunt pitched 3.2 innings and allowed a hit, walked 3, hit 2 batters, and struck out 4. Kevin Hill was the first man out of the Quad Cities bullpen and allowed a run on 3 hits, walked 1, and struck out 5 in 2.1 innings. Lucas Williams allowed a hit over 2 scoreless, and Salvador Montaño worked around a hit and a walk to throw a scoreless 9th.

Quad Cities and Burlington will wrap up this series at 6:35 as Forrest Whitley takes on Erik Manoah.
