Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Saturday, June 24, 2017

Let's play two in Fresno!

Game 1: Fresno 6, Sacramento 2

W- Casey Coleman (3-4)
L- Roberto Gomez (1-4)

Fresno home runs: None.

The Grizzlies only scored in one inning, but they got what they needed.

Casey Coleman pitched 6 innings and allowed 2 runs on 4 hits, walked 4, and struck out 1. Aaron West had a strikeout in a 1-2-3 7th inning.

All 6 of Fresno's runs in game 1 came in the 4th as they took full advantage of a bases-loaded, no out situation. D.J. Fisher doubled to lead off the inning, then Juan Centeno and Teoscar Hernandez joined him by reaching on a fielder's choice and walking, respectively. A.J. Reed and Reid Brignac followed by drawing walks to put the Grizzlies up 2-1, then Jon Kemmer sent everyone home with a triple. Kemmer trotted home on a Tony Kemp triple. The only batters who didn't score a run were the ones in the top third of the order (Kemp, Colin Moran, and Preston Tucker).

Game 2: Fresno 6, Sacramento 2

W- Brendan McCurry (1-0)
L- Dusten Knight (1-2)

Fresno home runs: Tyler White (11, solo in 4th), Jon Kemmer (10, solo in 5th)

The Grizzlies swept the doubleheader and took the series with another 6-2 decision in the nightcap. They posted the only crooked-number innings in each game.

Tyler White put Fresno on the board in game 2 with a solo homer to start the 4th inning. Kemmer followed up his triple in game 1 with a solo shot in the 5th to put the Grizz in front. One batter later, Max Stassi got plunked. He advanced on Alejandro Garcia's single and scored on an error following a Tony Kemp sacrifice bunt. Fresno got 3 in the 6th on RBI singles from Kemmer, Stassi, and Kemp.

Kemmer finished 2-2 with a stolen base (4) in game 2, which made him the only person on either side to finish with a multi-hit game in the nightcap.

The Grizzlies have Sunday off. They'll start a 4-game series with Albuquerque tomorrow.

Corpus Christi 11, Frisco 4

W- Brock Dykxhoorn (2-4)
L- Collin Wiles (6-4)

CC home runs: Kyle Tucker (6, 15 season; solo in 1st), Jon Singleton (14, solo in 4th), Jason Martin (4, 11 season; 2-run in 4th), Jack Mayfield (6, 7 season; solo in 6th)

The Hooks bashed 4 home runs and blew this game open with 5 runs in the 8th.

Kyle Tucker opened the scoring with a solo blast in the 1st inning. Jon Singleton (solo) and Jason Martin (2-run) went deep in the 4th, and Jack Mayfield whacked a solo shot in the 6th. J.D. Davis hit an RBI single in the 7th.

Mayfield ripped a double to begin the 8th and Martin joined him on the bases by legging out a bunt single. Ramon Laureano hit an RBI infield single to score Mayfield. Tony Nuñez bunted for a single to load the bases. Drew Ferguson was the first casualty of the inning, but Little Tuck came through with a 2-run single. Davis went down on strikes, but Singleton walked to re-load the bases for Garrett Stubbs, who capped off the outburst with a 2-run single.

Tucker (solo HR, 3 RBI, 2 R) and Martin (solo HR, 2 RBI, 2 R) both finished with 3 hits on the evening. Stubbs (2 RBI, R), Mayfield (2B, solo HR, 2 R), and Nuñez (2 R) all had 2 hits.

Canadian Baseball Hall of Famer Brock Dykxhoorn went 6.2 innings and allowed 2 runs (1 inherited runner charged to him) on 3 hits, walked 2, and struck out 5. Jacob Dorris allowed a run on 3 hits and struck out 2 in 1.1 innings, and Riley Ferrell allowed a run on 2 hits in the 9th.

Yoanys Quiala will start the Hooks' final game before the Texas League All-Star break begins. He'll take on Yohander Mendez at 6:05.

Winston-Salem 4, Buies Creek 2

W- Jimmy Lambert (1-0)
L- Franklin Perez (3-2)

BC home runs: None.

A 1st-inning grand slam was all the Dash needed to win this one.

To Franklin Perez's credit, however, he bounced back to complete 5 innings. The grand slam to Seby Zavala was the only run-scoring play that he allowed; he also allowed 4 other hits, walked 3, and struck out 7. Sebastian Kessay threw 3 perfect innings out of the bullpen, striking out 1.

The Carolina Stros got RBI singles from Yordan Alvarez in the 8th and Alex De Goti in the 9th.

Buies Creek and Winston-Salem will wrap up their series at 2:00 Eastern. Ryan Hartman will go up against Tanner Banks.

Quad Cities 3, Cedar Rapids 2

W- Carson LaRue (8-2)
L- Domenick Carlini (3-6)
S- Kevin Hill (3)

QC home runs: Ronnie Dawson (6, 2-run in 4th), Daz Cameron (8, solo in 5th)

The Banditos edged out the Kernels behind a pair of blasts and another nice outing from Carson LaRue.

LaRue allowed 2 runs on 5 hits, walked 1, and struck out 8 in 6 innings of work. Kevin Hill pitched the final 3 innings to earn the save, allowing 2 hits, walking 1, and striking out 4.

Ronnie Dawson's 2-run shot in the 4th tied the game at 2. Daz Cameron put Quad Cities in front with his solo blast in the 5th inning. Troy Sieber (2B, R) and Wander Franco (2B) both went 2-3 on the night.

Quad Cities and Cedar Rapids will wrap up their series at 5:15 as Ronel Blanco faces Clark Beeker.

Vermont 4, Tri-City 2

W- Jhenderson Hurtado (1-0)
L- Colin McKee (0-1)
S- Marc Berube (1)

TC home runs: None.

Both teams scored 2 runs in the innings in which they scored. Unfortunately for the ValleyCats, the Lake Monsters scored in one more inning than they did.

Tri-City's 2 runs came in the 2nd on a Luis Payano RBI double and an RBI single from Andy Piñeda. Corey Julks finished 2-3 with a double and 2 stolen bases.

César Rosado dominated in his 5 innings; he only issued a walk and struck out 6. Vermont, however, got to Colin McKee. In 3.2 innings, McKee allowed 4 runs (3 earned, 2 inherited runners charged to him) on 4 hits, walked 3, and struck out 1. Humberto Castellanos got the last out of the 9th, but not before he allowed the go-ahead 2-run single to Jesus Lopez that allowed McKee's runners to score.

TC and Vermont will continue their series at 5:00 Eastern.

Bluefield 7, Greeneville 6 in 11 innings

W- Mitch McKown (1-0)
L- Johsson Arias (0-1)

Greeneville home runs: Brody Westmoreland (2, solo in 7th)

The Appy Astros tied the game with a couple in the 8th... only to see the Blue Jays break the tie in the 11th to take the series.

Greeneville got 3 in the 3rd on a Reiny Beltre RBI double, a Ruben Castro RBI single, and an error that allowed Castro to score. Castro's run would be the last time that Greeneville would score until the 7th, when Brody Westmoreland launched a solo homer. Wilson Amador hit a 2-run single in the 8th to tie the game at 6.

Castro finished 3-6 with a double and scored twice. Beltre and Carlos Machado both finished 2-5.

Gerardo Bojorquez went 5 innings and allowed 4 runs on 7 hits (2 solo homers) while striking out 2. Javier Navas was the first man out of the Greeneville bullpen and allowed 2 runs (1 earned) on 2 hits (solo homer), walked 1, and struck out 2 in 3 innings. Johsson Arias went 2.1 innings and allowed a run, which was an inherited runner that was charged to him. He also allowed a single, walked 2, and struck out 2. Dariel Aquino issued an intentional walk and allowed the go-ahead sac fly that turned into an inning-ending double play in the 11th.

The Appy Astros will hit the road for the first time in 2017. Their first stop is Bristol, Virginia, where they'll send Hansel Paulino out to start the first of a 3-game series tonight at 6:00 Eastern.

DSL Red Sox 7, DSL Astros Blue 0

W- Andres Jimenez (1-0)
L- Freylin Garcia (0-2)
S- Shair Lacrus (1)

Blue home runs: None.

The Blue team got held off the board on Saturday.

Ronaldo Urdaneta (2B, 3B) and Luis Coronel both went 2-4.

Freylin Garcia allowed 3 runs on 4 hits, walked 2, and struck out 4 in 1.2 innings. Bryan Solano was the first man out of the Blue team bullpen and allowed a run on 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 3 in 3.1 innings. Renny Ugarte was next, and he allowed 3 runs (1 earned) on 3 hits, walked 2, and struck out 1 in 3.2 innings. Oscar Severino got the last out of the 9th with a strikeout.

DSL Dodgers2 12, DSL Astros Orange 1

W- Neifri Contreras (1-0)
L- Mauricio Santana (0-1)

Orange home runs: None.

Team Orange scored first, but the Dodgers scored the game's next 12 runs.

Euclides Chavez went 2-4 and his RBI single in the 1st was the Orange team's only scoring play. Fildex Perfecto, owner of the best name in the Astros system, made his debut as a defensive sub in the 6th and flew out in his only plate appearance.

Mauricio Santana, Fabricio Reina, and Cristofer Melendez all pitched 2.1 innings and they all got knocked around. I'll just leave it at that. Luis De Paula threw a 1-2-3 9th.
