Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Saturday, May 27, 2017

Albuquerque 11, Fresno 6

W- Sam Moll (1-2)
L- Casey Coleman (2-3)

Fresno home runs: None.

Fresno jumped out to an early 5-2 lead but Albuquerque finished this one on a 9-1 run.

Casey Coleman went 6.2 innings and allowed 7 runs (6 earned) on 6 hits (3-run homer), walked 2, and struck out 9. The 4 runs that Brian Holmes allowed in his 1.2 innings came on an 8th-inning grand slam from Rafael Ynoa. Holmes allowed 3 other hits, walked 2, and struck out 1. Ryan Thompson got the final two outs of the 9th without incident.

Teoscar Hernandez opened the scoring with an RBI double in the 1st inning and Colin Moran followed with a 2-run single. Reid Brignac hit an RBI single in the 3rd, and D.J. Fisher smacked an RBI double in the 6th. Fisher finished 3-5, while Moran, Brignac, and Preston Tucker all finished with 2 hits apiece.

David Martinez will take on Ryan Carpenter in game 2 of this series. First pitch is at 1:05 Pacific.

Corpus Christi 1, Tulsa 0

W- Akeem Bostick (2-1, 4-2 season)
L- Josh Sborz (1-3)
S- Kyle Smith (2)

CC home runs: None.

The Hooks were outhit 10-4. Usually, that doesn't bode well for a team when they get outhit by that margin, but Corpus managed to score the only run of the game.

Drew Ferguson's 23-game hitting streak fell by the wayside, but he scored only run of the evening when Jon Singleton drew a bases-loaded walk in the 3rd inning. Trent Woodward's double was Corpus Christi's only extra-base hit.

Akeem Bostick allowed 7 hits and fanned 3 in 5 innings and Kyle Smith completed the shutout, allowing 3 hits and striking out 7 over the final 4 innings.

Dean Deetz would have started the series finale, but he was placed on the DL on Tuesday. His replacement will go up against Walker Buehler at 6:05.

Frederick 6, Buies Creek 0

W- Luis Gonzalez (1-0)
L- Framber Valdez (0-3)

BC home runs: None.

Buies Creek's bats went quiet on Saturday night; all they could muster up on offense was a double from Dex McCall and a Randy César single. They managed to walk 7 times against Frederick starter Ofelky Peralta but couldn't take advantage of the free baserunners.

Framber Valdez went 4.2 innings and allowed 6 runs (2 inherited runners charged to him) on 5 hits (2-run homer), walked 2, and struck out 4. Ralph Garza Jr. didn't allow any runs of his own in 3.1 innings, but the two runners he inherited from Valdez both scored. Garza allowed 2 hits, walked 2, and struck out 4.

The Astros and Keys continue their series at 6:00 Eastern as Hector Perez goes up against Reid Love.

Quad Cities 3, Beloit 1

W- Carson LaRue (6-1)
L- Brendan Butler (1-3)
S- Erasmo Pinales (3)

QC home runs: None.

Carson LaRue had another fine start and Yordan Alvarez remains on fire since joining the Banditos.

LaRue allowed a run on 2 hits, walked 2, and struck out 5 in 7 innings of work. Erasmo Pinales finished it off by allowing 2 hits and striking out 2 over 2 scoreless.

Alvarez ripped two RBI doubles; he opened the scoring in the 1st with the first one and smacked another in the 3rd inning. Alex De Goti brought him in following his first RBI double. Wander Franco went 2-4 with a double and a stolen base.

Cionel Perez threw 7 no-hit innings his last time out; what does he have for a follow-up performance? He'll take on Ty Damron at 5:15.
