Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Friday, May 26, 2017

Fresno 8, Tacoma 7 in 10 innings

W- Dayan Diaz (3-0)
L- Nick Hagadone (2-2)
S- Reymin Guduan (1)

Fresno home runs: Jon Kemmer (5, solo in 5th), Tony Kemp (1, 2-run in 5th), Colin Moran (8, 2-run in 10th)

The Grizzlies earned the split in the Pacific Northwest with an extra-inning victory.

Francis Martes hasn't had the most stellar start to his season but this outing looks to be a step in the right direction. He went 5.2 innings and allowed 2 runs (1 earned) on 6 hits (solo homer), walked 1, and struck out 9. Martes hit 98 MPH on his final pitch of the night. Ashur Tolliver got the final out of the 6th and the first out of the 7th, but he allowed 3 runs (1 inherited runner charged to him) on 3 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1.

Dayan Diaz was next: he didn't allow a run of his own in 2.2 innings, but he did allow the runner he inherited from Tolliver to score, which tied the game at 5. Diaz also allowed 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 3. Aaron West came on for the 10th but allowed 2 runs (1 inherited runner charged to him) on 4 hits and failed to record an out. Reymin Guduan took ownership of the 10th and got a double play (that resulted in one of West's runners scoring) and struck out Leonys Martín to end the game.

Jon Kemmer put Fresno on the board with a solo shot in the 5th inning and Tony Kemp chipped in with a 2-run blast to put them in front. Kemp added a 2-run double to his ledger in the 7th. Fresno broke a 5-5 tie in the first extra frame as Colin Moran launched a 2-run homer and Kemmer added an RBI double to his line.

Kemmer finished 3-4 on the evening. Kemp (2B, 2-R HR, 4 RBI, R), Moran (2-R HR), Reid Brignac, and D.J. Fisher (SB, R) all had two hits in the game. Max Stassi went 0-2 but walked twice and scored twice.

Fresno is back home and they are rolling out the welcome mat for Albuquerque. Casey Coleman will get the start against Jeff Hoffman. First pitch is at 7:05.

Corpus Christi 10, Tulsa 7

W- Cy Sneed (3-4)
L- Andrew Sopko (0-4)

CC home runs: J.D. Davis (11, 3-run in 2nd)

The Hooks stormed out to a 7-2 lead and staved off a Tulsa uprising in the late innings to come out victorious.

Brock Dykxhoorn and Cy Sneed both pitched 4 innings and they both allowed 3 runs. Dykxhoorn allowed 7 hits, walked 1, and struck out 3, while Sneed allowed 3 hits, walked 1, and fanned 6. Andrew Thome allowed a run on 2 hits and struck out 1 in the 9th.

Jon Singleton smacked an RBI double in the 1st inning to put Corpus on the board. Ramon Laureano followed by reaching on an error that allowed Garrett Stubbs to score; he was credited with an RBI on the play. Singleton put the Hooks in front when he scored on a wild pitch while Laureano stole 2nd. Laureano ended up at 3rd and scored on a Jamie Ritchie sac fly. J.D. Davis whacked a 3-run homer in the 2nd, his system-leading 11th of the year. Laureano ripped an RBI double in the 7th and Singleton added a 2-run single to his ledger in the 8th.

Singleton (2B, 3 RBI, 2 R) and Drew Ferguson (2 R, BB, SB) both finished with 3 hits and 2 runs scored; Ferguson extended his hitting streak to 23 games. Stubbs walked 4 times and scored 3 runs.

Akeem Bostick gets the start in game 2 of this series. He'll face Josh Sborz at 7:05.

Frederick 9, Buies Creek 5

W- Mike Burke (1-0)
L- Matt Bower (2-2)

BC home runs: Ryne Birk (4, 2-run in 7th)

The Astros got torched by a 3-homer performance from Frederick's Ryan Mountcastle on Friday night.

Jake Rogers put Buies Creek on the board with a 2-run double in the 3rd inning. Spencer Johnson hit an RBI single in the 4th, and Ryne Birk smacked a 2-run homer in the 7th. Rogers went 2-3 on the night.

Matt Bower got knocked around in his 4.2 innings. I think some things are better left unsaid. Devon Carr issued a walk and got the final out of the 5th. Yoanys Quiala pitched the final 3 innings and the one hit he allowed was a solo homer to Mountcastle, his third of the night. He also walked 1 and struck out 1.

Game 2 of this series starts at 5:00 Eastern as Framber Valdez takes on Ofelky Peralta.

Beloit 6, Quad Cities 3 in 11 innings

W- Yordys Alejo (1-1)
L- Kevin Hill (1-1)

QC home runs: None.

Both teams scored a run in the first extra frame, but the Snappers seized control with 3 in the top of the 11th.

In his first game since coming off the disabled list, Alex De Goti went 2-5 with an RBI double in the 4th inning. Yordan Alvarez also turned in a 2-hit night; one of those two hits was an RBI single in the 5th. He walked to lead off the bottom of the 10th and scored on an Osvaldo Duarte double. Duarte's two hits were both doubles. Stephen Wrenn also went 2-4 out of the leadoff spot.

Dustin Hunt went 4 innings and allowed a run on 4 hits, walked 1, and struck out 4. Abdiel Saldaña and Lucas Williams followed with 3 innings apiece out of the Banditos bullpen. Saldaña allowed a run on 3 hits, walked 2, and struck out 2, while Williams allowed a run on 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1. Beloit got to Kevin Hill for 3 runs on 4 hits in the 11th inning.

The series continues at 6:35 as Carson LaRue faces Brendan Butler.
