Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Sunday, May 7, 2017

Colorado Springs 7, Fresno 3

W- Brandon Woodruff (5-0)
L- Edison Frias (1-3)

Fresno home runs: Preston Tucker (6, solo in 8th)

The Grizzlies were done in by a couple of big innings from the Sky Sox offense and a lackluster offensive showing on their end.

Fresno didn't get on the board until the 8th when Jon Kemmer hit a sac fly and Preston Tucker launched a solo homer. Jack Mayfield finished 3-4 with a couple of doubles; he led off the 8th with one and scored on Kemmer's sac fly and drove in a run with the second double in the 9th inning. D.J. Fisher singled to extend his hitting streak to 12 games. Reid Brignac finished 2-4.

Edison Frias and Brian Holmes both pitched 4 innings with dramatically different results. Frias allowed 7 runs on 9 hits (2 solos and a 2-run homer), walked 3, and struck out 3. On the other hand, Holmes allowed a hit, walked 2, struck out 5, and kept Colorado Springs off the scoreboard.

Francis Martes returns after getting his last start skipped. He'll face Josh Hader at 6:40 Mountain.

San Antonio 7, Corpus Christi 1

W- Kyle Lloyd (3-3)
L- Josh James (2-1)

CC home runs: None.

The Hooks dropped their sixth straight to fall to .500. They were in this same situation last year and managed to right the ship and win the first half.

Mott Hyde opened the scoring with an RBI infield single in the 2nd. Unfortunately, that was Corpus Christi's only scoring play of the afternoon.

Josh James went 4 innings and allowed 2 runs (1 earned) on 3 hits, walked 2, and struck out 2. Riley Ferrell was the first man out of the Corpus bullpen and allowed 3 runs on 3 hits, walked 2, and struck out 1 in the 5th. Michael Freeman pitched 2.1 innings and allowed 2 runs on 3 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1. Jacob Dorris struck out 3 over 1.2 perfect innings.

The series continues at 7:05 as Rogelio Armenteros faces Barry Enright.

Buies Creek 12, Myrtle Beach 6

W- Matt Bower (2-0)
L- Ryan Kellogg (1-2)

BC home runs: Jason Martin 3 (5; solo in 1st, 3-run in 2nd, solo in 4th), Kyle Tucker 2 (8; solo in 2nd, 2-run in 6th), Anibal Sierra (1, 3-run in 1st), Pat Porter (3, solo in 6th)

Sunday Funday for Buies Creek as they lit up Myrtle Beach's pitchers to the tune of seven home runs. All 12 of their runs scored on those big flies.

Jason Martin wasted little time in getting things started as he sent one out to start the game. Later in the 1st, Anibal Sierra whacked a 3-run homer. Martin launched a 3-run homer in the 2nd to give him two in as many innings. Kyle Tucker followed by cranking a solo shot later in the frame. Martin led off the 4th inning with his 3rd homer of the day, his second solo blast. Little Tuck turned in a second consecutive multi-homer game when he smacked a 2-run homer in the 6th. Pat Porter followed up that dinger by clubbing a solo homer. Porter and Martin both finished with 3 hits on the day. Tucker and Dex McCall both finished 2-4 at the plate.

Matt Bower allowed 4 runs on 7 hits, walked 1, and struck out 3 in 5 innings. Ryan Deemes and Nick Hernandez pitched 2 innings apiece out of the bullpen. Deemes allowed 2 runs on 4 hits and fanned 4, while Hernandez struck out one over a pair of spotless frames.

Buies Creek has Monday off. They'll return to action on Tuesday to start a 3-game series with the Salem Red Sox. Framber Valdez will face Dedgar Jimenez at 7:00 Eastern.

Lake County 3, Quad Cities 1

W- Tanner Tully (1-1)
L- Ryan Hartman (3-1)
S- Ryder Ryan (1)

QC home runs: None.

The Banditos' bats were silenced in the series finale. Both teams scored a run in the 5th inning, but the Captains quickly broke the tie with a couple of runs in the 6th.

Taylor Jones' sac fly in the 5th was Quad Cities' only scoring play. Stephen Wrenn, who scored that run, went 2-3 with a double.

Ryan Hartman went 5 innings and allowed 3 runs (2 inherited runners charged to him) on 5 hits, walked 2, and struck out 4. Lucas Williams didn't allow any runs that were charged to him in his 3 innings of work, but he allowed the two runners he inherited from Hartman to score in the 6th. Williams also allowed 2 hits, walked 2, and struck out 4. Kevin Hill worked around a hit and a walk to throw a scoreless 9th, striking out 2.

The River Bandits will be on the road this week to take on a couple of Eastern Division clubs. Their first stop is Bowling Green, Kentucky, where they'll begin a 3-game set with the Hot Rods at 6:35. Enoli Paredes will start game 1.
