Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Tuesday, May 30, 2017

Fresno 8, Albuquerque 2

W- Mike Hauschild (1-1)
L- Matt Flemer (2-4)

Fresno home runs: Preston Tucker 2 (10; solo in 2nd, 2-run in 8th), D.J. Fisher (13, 2-run in 1st)

Fresno won a Taco Tuesday game for the first time this season as Preston Tucker bludgeoned the 'Topes with a pair of homers.

I'm not what sure what the Rangers did to Mike Hauschild while he was there, but he hasn't had the greatest start to his 2017. He did turn in his best outing of the season on Tuesday, however, going 6 innings and allowing 2 runs on 5 hits, walking 3, and striking out 3. Kevin Comer, Dayan Diaz, and Tyson Perez all threw a scoreless inning out of the bullpen. Comer was first and worked around a couple of hits and got a strikeout in the 7th. Diaz and Perez both allowed a hit and struck out 1 in the 8th and the 9th, respectively.

D.J. Fisher's 2-run blast in the 1st put the Tacos on the board first. This was his third consecutive game with a homer. The elder Tucker clubbed a solo shot in the 2nd inning. Tony Kemp hit an RBI single in the 5th and added an RBI triple to his ledger in the 7th. One batter later, he trotted home on Tyler White's single. Tucker capped off the evening by whacking a 2-run homer in the 8th.

Kemp went 3-4 and finished a home run shy of the cycle. Tucker's two hits were both homers, and Juan Centeno also had two hits in his return to Fresno.

The Grizzlies have today off. They'll start a 4-game series with Tacoma on Thursday.

Springfield 4, Corpus Christi 3

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

CC home runs: J.D. Davis (12, solo in 6th)

The Hooks kicked off this roadtrip by walking off with a loss in the Ozarks. 

Jack Mayfield opened the scoring with an RBI double in the 2nd inning. Later in the frame, Drew Ferguson drove in a run in painful fashion when he got plunked with the bases loaded. J.D. Davis smacked a solo homer in the 6th. Mayfield (2B, RBI) and Garrett Stubbs both finished 2-4. In their Texas League debuts, Kyle Tucker went 1-4 and Jason Martin was 0-2 with a walk.

Kent Emanuel went 5 innings and allowed 2 runs on 7 hits (solo homer) and struck out 3. Alex Winkelman was the first man out of the Corpus bullpen and allowed a run on 2 hits, walked 2, and struck out 2 in 2 innings. The Cardinals got the winning run off Jacob Dorris with a swinging-bunt RBI single with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th. Dorris allowed one other hit and struck out 1 in 1.2 innings.

Game 2 of this series has Rogelio Armenteros facing Dakota Hudson at 6:30.

Buies Creek was off

The Carolina Stros are back home and they will begin a 4-game series with Carolina tonight at 7:00 Eastern.

Quad Cities 8, Cedar Rapids 2

W- Carlos Sanabria (1-2)
L- Eduardo Del Rosario (4-3)

QC home runs: None.

The Banditos pounded out 16 hits while Carlos Sanabria flirted with a perfect game.

Sanabria was perfect through 6 and ultimately went 6.2 innings. The two runs he allowed came on a homer hit by Jermaine Palacios in the 7th inning. The three hits he allowed all occurred to lead off the inning. He also walked 1 and struck out 7. Abdiel Saldaña retired all four Cedar Rapids hitters he faced, striking out one of them, and Lucas Williams worked around a hit to throw a scoreless 9th, striking out 1.

Yordan Alvarez scored the first run of the evening when Marcos Almonte drove him in with a single in the opening frame. Osvaldo Duarte chipped in with an RBI single in the 4th, and then Quad Cities blew this one wide open with 4 in the 5th.

Chuckie Robinson led off the big 5th with a single, advanced to 2nd on a sac bunt from Almonte, and scored on a Ronnie Dawson double. Dawson advanced to 3rd on a Wander Franco groundout, then Daz Cameron walked and stole 2nd. Taylor Jones came through with a 2-run single which prompted the Kernels to make a pitching change. Jones advanced to 2nd on a wild pitch and Duarte greeted the new Cedar Rapids pitcher with an RBI double. Almonte ripped an RBI double in the 6th and Robinson scored the final Quad Cities run of the game on Franco's groundout.

Dawson and Alvarez both finished with 3 hits and 2 runs scored. Duarte and Almonte both had 2 hits and drove in 2. Robinson also finished with 2 hits on the night; he scored twice and walked twice.

The Banditos and Kernels will continue their series at 6:35. Neither team has announced their starters for this game, so I'm assuming (probably incorrectly) that Quad Cities has a pending transaction.
