Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Saturday, June 3, 2017

Happy Dominican Summer League Opening Day!

Fresno 3, Tacoma 2

W- Dayan Diaz (4-0)
L- Ryne Harper (2-1)

Fresno home runs: None.

The Grizzlies walked off with the win thanks to Preston Tucker's 2-out RBI single in the bottom of the 9th. D.J. Fisher went 2-4 and drove in the other two Fresno runs with an RBI double in the 6th and an RBI single in the 7th. Fisher now has a 9-game hitting streak.

David Martinez turned in 6.2 solid innings, allowing a run (which was an inherited runner that was charged to him) on 4 hits, walking 2, and striking out 2. Brendan McCurry got the final out of the 7th and the first out of the 8th. He allowed an unearned run on 2 hits and struck out 1. Dayan Diaz retired all 5 Tacoma hitters he faced, getting 4 groundball outs and a flyout.

Dean Deetz makes his AAA debut in the series finale. He'll take on Andrew Moore at 1:05 Pacific.

Corpus Christi 5, Tulsa 3

W- Kyle Smith (2-1)
L- Walked Buehler (1-1)
S- Jacob Dorris (3)

CC home runs: Drew Ferguson (6, solo in 1st), J.D. Davis (13, solo in 4th)

The Hooks didn't have much luck against Walker Buehler in Corpus last Sunday. They didn't fare much better on Saturday, getting only two hits off him. However, those two hits were home runs. Neither team put up a crooked number in this game, so the Hooks won in the simplest way possible: by scoring a run in more innings than the Drillers did.

Drew Ferguson got Buehler to lead off the ballgame, and J.D. Davis took him deep to begin the 4th. Ferguson added an RBI single to his ledger in the 7th. Jack Mayfield hit an RBI single in the 8th, and Kyle Tucker ripped an RBI double in the 9th. Davis finished 3-5 with the solo homer and scored on Mayfield's single. Ferguson's two hits both drove in runs.

Kyle Smith was perfect through 5 innings, striking out 4. Akeem Bostick tagged in for 3 innings and allowed 3 runs on 6 hits (solo homer), walked 1, and struck out 1. Jacob Dorris worked around a single and a walk to close it out, striking out 2 in the 9th.

Alex Winkelman will make his second Texas League start in the series finale. He'll face Isaac Anderson at 1:05.

Buies Creek 7, Carolina 3

W- Justin Ferrell (5-3)
L- Kodi Medeiros (3-4)

BC home runs: Anibal Sierra (2, solo in 4th)

The Carolina Stros fought back to earn a series split after dropping the first two games.

Framber Valdez went 4.1 innings and allowed a run on 4 hits, walked 3, and struck out 7. Justin Ferrell was the first man out of the Buies Creek bullpen and threw 3.2 innings, allowing a run on 2 hits, walking 4, and striking out 2. Sebastian Kessay allowed an unearned run on a groundout, a single, and struck out 1 in the 9th.

Jake Rogers put Buies Creek on the board first with an RBI single in the 1st. He then stole 2nd and scored on Alex De Goti's double. Spencer Johnson tripled to lead off the bottom of the 2nd and scored on a single from Myles Straw. Anibal Sierra smacked a solo homer with 2 outs in the bottom of the 4th inning. De Goti added a sac fly to his ledger in the 5th, and Ryne Birk hit a 2-run single in the 6th. Straw finished 3-5 on the evening, while Birk went 2-4. Johnson and Sierra scored two runs apiece from the bottom two spots in the lineup.

The Astros welcome Myrtle Beach to Jim Perry Stadium for a 3-game set starting at 4:00 Eastern. Franklin Perez will go up against Justin Steele.

Kane County 5, Quad Cities 2

W- Jon Duplantier (6-0)
L- Cionel Perez (3-3)
S- Tommy Eveld (11)

QC home runs: Osvaldo Duarte (4, solo in 3rd)

The Banditos were the first team this season to record more than 5 hits against Kane County starter Jon Duplantier, who has mowed down the Midwest League this season. However, they only got two runs to show for it.

Osvaldo Duarte launched a solo homer in the 3rd to put Quad Cities on the board. Daz Cameron scored their only other run on a wild pitch in the 7th. Yordan Alvarez and Chuckie Robinson had 2 hits apiece; Alvarez extended his hitting streak to 9 games.

Cionel Perez went 5.2 innings and allowed 5 runs (3 earned) on 8 hits, walked 1, and struck out 2. Abdiel Saldaña allowed a hit and fanned 2 in 2.1 scoreless innings, and Kevin Hill worked around a walk to throw a scoreless 9th, striking out 1.

Quad Cities and Kane County will wrap up their series at 5:15 as Forrest Whitley faces Emilio Vargas.

DSL Braves 8, DSL Astros Blue 5

W- Walner Polanco (1-0)
L- Angel Macuare (0-1)

Blue home runs: None.

The Braves seized control with 7 runs in the 2nd inning. The Blue team managed to fight back, but that deficit proved to be too much to overcome.

Ozziel Sanchez-Galan hit a one-out triple in the 6th and scored the Blue team's first run of the season on a single from César Cortez. In the 7th, Yorbin Ceuta reached on an error that resulted in Anthony Rodriguez coming in to score; Ceuta was credited with an RBI on the play. Rodriguez scored again in the 9th when Ceuta grounded into a double play. Brandon Benavente scored on another Braves error and Cortez drew a bases-loaded walk. Sanchez-Galan went 2-4 and scored twice.

Angel Macuare went 2 innings and allowed 7 runs (4 earned) on 6 hits and struck out 3. Fabricio Reina was the first man out of the Blue team's bullpen and struck out 3 over 2 scoreless innings. Antonio Pujols allowed a run on a wild pitch, a single, and walked 2 in 3 innings. Jean Reyes worked around a hit to throw a scoreless 8th.

DSL Astros Orange 5, DSL Indians/Brewers 3

W- Angel Ortega (1-0)
L- Wilmy De Jesus (0-1)

Orange home runs: None.

The Orange team scored 4 of their 5 runs in the final 2 innings to come out on top.

Diosward Gonzalez went 4 innings and allowed an unearned run on 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 6. Carlos Perdomo tagged in for 3 innings, allowing 2 runs (1 earned) on 2 hits, walking 4, and striking out 6. Angel Ortega allowed a hit and walked 1 over 2 scoreless.

Deury Carrasco walked to lead off the bottom of the 1st and scored on Samir Caraballo's triple. This was their only scoring play until the 7th; in the meantime, the Brewdians took a 3-1 lead.

Euclides Chavez doubled to lead off the 7th, advanced to 3rd on a Jose Alvarez groundout, and scored on a Gerry Castillo groundout. Team Orange took the lead with 3 in the 8th. Caraballo walked to begin the frame, and Ramiro Rodriguez joined him on the bases with a single. They both advanced when Leandro Gonzalez laid down a sac bunt, and Caraballo scored the tying run on a sac fly from Chavez. Rodriguez scored the go-ahead run on an errant pickoff throw, and Castillo capped off the morning with an RBI single. Chavez finished 2-3, as did Sean Mendoza.

Sunday is an off day for the entire DSL.
