Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Sunday, June 4, 2017

Tacoma 9, Fresno 5

W- Ryne Harper (2-1)
L- Dean Deetz (0-1, 4-3 season)
S- Jean Machi (7)

Fresno home runs: None.

The Grizzlies were foiled in their bid to sweep the series as Dean Deetz received a rude welcome to the Pacific Coast League. Fresno took advantage of some Tacoma blunders, but the Rainiers built a 7-3 lead after the first three innings.

Deetz only lasted 2.1 innings and allowed 7 runs (1 inherited runner charged to him) on 9 hits (solo homer), walked 2, and struck out 1. Aaron West stopped the bleeding with 2.2 scoreless, allowing 4 hits and striking out 1. Brian Holmes pitched 1.1 innings and allowed 2 hits, had an inherited runner charged to him, walked 2, and struck out 1. Tyson Perez got the last 2.2 innings and allowed a run on 3 hits, walked 2, and struck out 1.

Jon Kemmer put Fresno on the board with an RBI single in the 2nd inning. One batter later, Max Stassi reached on an error that allowed Colin Moran and Tyler White to score. The Grizzlies scored two more runs off Tacoma's gaffes in the 5th as Tony Kemp scored on a wild pitch and Preston Tucker came home on an error that allowed Teoscar Hernandez to reach safely. No one turned in a multi-hit game, no one scored more than once. A.J. Reed's double in the 9th inning was the Grizzlies' only extra-base hit.

The Grizzlies will hit the road for 11 games. Their first stop is Sacramento, where they'll play 4 with the RiverCats beginning tonight at 7:05 Pacific. Trent Thornton will take on Michael Roth in game 1.

Tulsa 10, Corpus Christi 9

W- Karch Kowalczyk (3-1)
L- Sean Stutzman (1-1)

CC home runs: J.D. Davis (14, 2-run in 1st). Jason Martin (1, 11 season; solo in 3rd), Jon Singleton (10, solo in 4th)

The Hooks scored 2 in the 8th to break a 7-7 tie, only to see the Drillers walk off with the win after they scored 3 in the bottom of the 9th. Corpus dropped 2 of 3 in both series in this roadtrip.
J.D. Davis opened the scoring by launching a 2-run homer in the opening frame. Jason Martin smacked a solo shot in the 3rd to tie the game at 3, his first home run in the Texas League. Jon Singleton led off the 4th with a homer. Later in the inning, Tony Nuñez added a sac fly and Martin ripped a 2-run double. In the 8th, Trent Woodward hit an RBI single and Garrett Stubbs scored on a wild pitch.

Alex Winkelman went 5 innings and allowed 6 runs (5 earned) on 7 hits (2-run homer), walked 2, and struck out 2. Ryan Thompson allowed a run on 3 hits and struck out 2 over 2.2 innings. The Drillers homered twice off Sean Stutzman in the bottom of the 9th: Edwin Rios tied it with a 2-run homer with 1 out in the inning and Matt Beaty won it with a solo shot with 2 outs. Stutzman got the final out of the 8th and 2 outs in the 9th, walking 1 and striking out 2.

Corpus is back home and they have the day off. They'll start a 4-game series with Frisco tomorrow at 7:05 as Kent Emanuel faces Ariel Jurado.

Myrtle Beach 8, Buies Creek 5 through 9.5 innings

This game was suspended in the middle of the 10th due to storms. It'll resume at 6:00 Eastern, with the scheduled game to follow immediately after. Brett Adcock will take on Mike Rucker in that game.

Quad Cities 14, Kane County 5

W- Carlos Sanabria (2-2)
L- Sam Lewis (0-2)

QC home runs: Yordan Alvarez (3, 3-run in 3rd), Ray Henderson (3, 3-run in 7th)

The Banditos got on the board with 3 in the 3rd to tie the game, then took control with 5 in the 7th. When the Cougars tried to get back in the game with a pair in the 8th, Quad Cities put the game away with 6 in the bottom of the 8th.

Forrest Whitley went 3 innings and allowed 3 runs on 6 hits, walked 2, and struck out 3. Salvador Montaño picked him up by allowing a hit and striking out 2 over 2 scoreless innings. Carlos Sanabria followed with 3 innings, allowing 2 runs on 2 hits, walking 2, and striking otu 3. Erasmo Pinales struck out 2 in a 1-2-3 9th.

Yordan Alvarez put Quad Cities on the board by launching a 3-run home run into the Mississippi River, which extended his hitting streak to 10 games.

Alvarez added an RBI single to his ledger in the 7th inning. Chuckie Robinson followed with an RBI single, and Ray Henderson delivered a haymaker in the form of a 3-run homer. The Banditos compounded the Cougars' misery by parlaying a bases-loaded, no out situation into 6 runs in the 8th.

Osvaldo Duarte and Alvarez both drew bases-loaded walks, then Robinson hit a 2-run double. Henderson added a sac fly, and Carmen Benedetti capped off the scoring with an RBI single. Benedetti and Taylor Jones both finished 3-4 on the evening. Alvarez (3-R HR, 5 RBI, 3 R) and Robinson (2B, 3 RBI, 2 R) had two hits apiece.

Quad Cities has the day off before embarking on a tour of Wisconsin. Their first stop will be Appleton, where they'll play 3 with the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers starting tomorrow evening.
