Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Saturday, May 6, 2017


Colorado Springs 19, Fresno 7

W- Tim Dillard (1-0)
L- Mike Hauschild (0-1)

Fresno home runs: Jon Kemmer (3, solo in 1st)

This game was surely one to forget for the Fresno Grizzlies. Once again, they lost a series opener.

Mike Hauschild and Keegan Yuhl both had tough nights on the mound, and I think I'll leave it at that. Sean Stutzman allowed 2 runs on 4 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1 in 2.1 innings. Aaron West allowed a hit and fanned 2 over 1.1 scoreless, and Andrew Aplin worked around a hit and a walk to throw a scoreless 8th.

Jon Kemmer opened the scoring by whacking a solo homer in the 1st inning. This would be the Grizzlies' last scoring play until the 5th; in the meantime, the Sky Sox scored 18 unanswered.

Max Stassi walked to lead off the 5th. Aplin doubled, and Jack Mayfield drove them in with a double. Mayfield came around to score on a single from Derek Fisher. A.J. Reed walked to lead off the 6th and Stassi drove him in with a double. Stassi advanced to 3rd on a wild pitch and scored on an Aplin single. Aplin eventually scored on a Tony Kemp groundout.

Stassi and Aplin both went 2-3; both of Stassi's hits were doubles. Fisher and Kemmer finished 2-5; Fisher extended his hit streak to 11 games.

Edison Frias will take on Brandon Woodruff in game 2 of this series. First pitch is at 1:30 Mountain.

San Antonio 3, Corpus Christi 2

W- Brett Kennedy (2-1)
L- Kent Emanuel (1-2)
S- Trey Wingenter (1)

CC home runs: Tyler Wolfe (1, 2-run in 8th)

A two-run homer jolted the Hooks back to life but they couldn't push across the tying run in the 9th and dropped their fifth in a row.

Tyler Wolfe was the one who smacked a 2-run homer in the 8th that put Corpus on the board and suddenly made this a one-run game. Garrett Stubbs drew a walk in the bottom of the 9th and managed to advance to 2nd, but he was stranded there to end the game. Drew Ferguson went 2-4 with a double.

Kent Emanuel went 5 innings and allowed 3 runs (all in the 4th) on 6 hits, walked 2, and struck out 2. Dean Deetz turned in 4 scoreless frames, allowing 2 hits, walking 3, and fanning 4.

Josh James starts game 2 of this series. He'll face Kyle Lloyd at 2:05.

Myrtle Beach 8, Buies Creek 4

W- Oscar de la Cruz (2-2)
L- Justin Ferrell (2-2)
S- Kyle Miller (1)

BC home runs: Kyle Tucker 2 (6; solo in 4th, solo in 9th), Christian Correa (1, solo in 8th)

A big inning from the Pelicans doomed the Carolina Stros for the second straight contest.

Kyle Tucker launched a pair of solo shots to turn in the first multi-homer game of his career. Christian Correa smacked a solo homer of his own in the 8th inning. After Little Tuck's second homer in the 9th, Ryne Birk drew a one-out walk and scored on a double from Pat Porter. Tucker and Porter both finished 2-4 on the evening.

Justin Ferrell went 4.1 innings and allowed 4 runs (2 inherited runners charged to him) on 7 hits, walked 1, and struck out 2. Ralph Garza Jr. got the final two outs of the 5th, one via strikeout, but both of the runners he inherited from Ferrell scored on a 3-run homer that he served up to Eddy Martinez. Garza also allowed a 2-run homer to Matt Rose in that 5th inning for Myrtle Beach. Alex Winkelman allowed an unearned run, 2 hits, and struck out 6 in 3 innings; the run scored on a force out in the 6th.

Matt Bower will take on Ryan Kellogg in the series finale. First pitch is at 3:05 Eastern.

Lake County 13, Quad Cities 3

W- Justin Garza (1-0)
L- Forrest Whitley (1-1)

QC home runs: None.

The Banditos fell behind 10-0 after 3.5 innings and Forrest Whitley hit the first speed bump of his young career.

Whitley did strike out the side in each of the two innings that he worked, but he got tagged for 4 runs on 5 hits (3-run homer) in the 1st inning. Reggie Johnson was the first man out of the Quad Cities bullpen and allowed 5 runs on 4 hits while walking 2 in the 3rd inning. Jorge Alcala allowed a run in the 4th, his first inning of work, but he managed to stop the bleeding. Alcala ended up going 4.2 innings and also allowed 4 hits, walked 2, and struck out 7. Salvador Montaño recorded the last 4 outs, all via strikeout. He also allowed 3 runs (all of which came in the 9th) on 4 hits and walked 1.

All three Quad Cities runs came in the 4th inning: Randy César ripped a 2-run double and came around to score on a single from Rodrigo Ayarza. Stephen Wrenn finished 3-4 with a pair of doubles while Ayarza finished 2-4.

Ryan Hartman gets the start as the River Bandits and Captains wrap up their series at 1:15. He'll be opposed by Juan Hillman.
