Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Thursday, May 25, 2017

Let's play two in Buies Creek for real this time!

Fresno 5, Tacoma 2

W- Tyson Perez (1-0)
L- Ryan Kelly (0-1)
S- Kevin Comer (1, 2 season)

Fresno home runs: Preston Tucker (7, 2-run in 5th)

Both teams put up crooked numbers in the innings which they scored. The Grizzlies put up one more.

Preston Tucker put Fresno on the board first when he smacked a 2-run shot in the 5th inning. Tacoma got a pair in the 6th to tie, but the Grizz had the final say in this one with a 3-run 8th inning.

Max Stassi doubled to lead off the 8th and Tony Kemp joined him on the bases by drawing a walk. Kemp was forced out at 2nd base but Tyler White beat the double play and advanced to 2nd on a D.J. Fisher groundout. Teoscar Hernandez got a free pass to 1st to set up a force at any base, but Colin Moran burned the Rainiers with a 2-run single to put Fresno in front. A.J. Reed went 2-4 and brought Teoscar home with a single to tack on some insurance.

Mike Hauschild went 5.2 innings and allowed 2 runs (both of which were inherited runners charged to him) on 5 hits, walked 4, and struck out 5. Tyson Perez came out to try to extract Hauschild from a bases-loaded predicament, but he was greeted with a 2-run single immediately after coming on. Perez went 1.1 innings and allowed one other hit and struck out 1. Kevin Comer allowed a hit and fanned 3 in 2 scoreless innings to earn the save.

Francis Martes gets the start in the series finale. First pitch is at 7:05 Pacific.

Corpus Christi 4, Springfield 3 in 10 innings

W- Jacob Dorris (1-0)
L- Kevin Herget (0-2)

CC home runs: None.

The Hooks tied the game in the bottom of the 9th and walked off with the win and the series in the first extra frame. Neither team posted a crooked number, so Corpus won by scoring in more innings.

Drew Ferguson went 2-6 and opened the scoring with an RBI infield single in the 5th inning. Ramon Laureano also had a two-hit night and he too hit an RBI single that came in the 7th. Jack Mayfield walked in the tying run with two outs in the bottom of the 9th. Tony Nuñez walked to lead off the 9th, advanced to 2nd on a Garrett Stubbs bunt single, and scored the winning run on a Kristian Trompiz single. Stubbs finished 3-5 with a double and a run scored and Trent Woodward went 2-4.

Rogelio Armenteros allowed 4 hits, walked 1, and struck out 8 over 5.2 shutout frames. Albert Minnis got the final out of the 6th and the first out in the 7th and allowed a run (unearned) on a wild pitch, a single, and struck out 1. Riley Ferrell followed with 1.2 innings; he allowed a run on 2 hits and fanned 2. Jacob Dorris pitched 2 innings and allowed a run on a force out, walked 1, and struck out 1.

Tonight, the Hooks welcome Tulsa to Whataburger Field. Brock Dykxhoorn goes first and he'll go up against Andrew Sopko at 7:05.

Game 1: Salem 5, Buies Creek 4

W- Dedgar Jimenez (5-1)
L- Brett Adcock (1-2, 2-2 season)
S- Trevor Kelley (3)

BC home runs: Jake Rogers (3, 9 season; solo in 5th)

Buies Creek's comeback bid fell one run short.

Jake Rogers led off the 5th with a solo homer. Ryne Birk followed with a double then advanced to 3rd thanks to an error on the play. He would score on an Anthony Hermelyn groundout. Arturo Michelena hit a 2-run single in the 7th to cut the deficit to one run, but that was as close as they could get. Birk finished 2-3 and scored twice.

Brett Adcock pitched 5 innings and allowed 5 runs on 7 hits (solo and 3-run homers), walked 2, and struck out 5. Cristian Javier made his season debut as the first man out of the Buies Creek bullpen and in 1.2 innings, he walked 3 and also struck out 3. Nick Hernandez got the final out of the 7th inning.

Would game 2 have a better result for the Astros?

Game 2: Salem 5, Buies Creek 1

W- Daniel Gonzalez (1-0)
L- Jorge Alcala (1-1, 3-1 season)
S- Gerson Bautista (2)

BC home runs: None.

The Red Sox swept the twinbill to come out on top in the battle of the Carolina League's best.

Anibal Sierra spoiled the shutout with an RBI single in the 7th inning. Pat Porter's double was the Astros' only extra-base hit in game 2.

Jorge Alcala went 3.2 innings and allowed 3 runs (2 earned, 1 inherited runner charged to him) on 5 hits, walked 2, and struck out 5. Howie Brey pitched the final 3.1 innings and the one hit he allowed was a 2-run homer hit by Chad de la Guerra in the 7th inning. He also walked 2 and struck out 3.

Buies Creek is on the road again. Matt Bower will start the first of a 4-game series against the Frederick Keys (Orioles). He'll face Brian Gonzalez at 7:00 Eastern.

Quad Cities 4, Peoria 0

W- Enoli Paredes (1-3)
L- Bryan Dobzanski (0-4)
S- Ryan Hartman (1)

QC home runs: Osvaldo Duarte (3, solo in 2nd)

Osvaldo Duarte took another step towards righting the ship following a rough start in the Carolina League, while Enoli Paredes and Ryan Hartman joined forces to keep the Chiefs off the scoreboard.

Paredes pitched 5 innings and allowed 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 5, while Hartman finished it off by allowing 4 hits and striking out 5 in 4 innings of work.

The Banditos scored a pair in the opening frame off a bases-loaded situation and didn't need a hit to do so: Marcos Almonte walked in Stephen Wrenn and one batter later, Ronnie Dawson got plunked, which allowed Carmen Benedetti to score. Osvaldo Duarte launched a homer to lead off the 2nd and added an RBI single to his ledger in the 3rd. Duarte, Wrenn, Rodrigo Ayarza, and Yordan Alvarez finished with two hits apiece.

Quad Cities welcomes the Beloit Snappers to Modern Woodmen Park for the weekend. Dustin Hunt starts game 1 and he'll go up against Brendan Butler at 6:35.
