Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Thursday, June 8, 2017

Fresno 9, Sacramento 2

W- David Martinez (3-6)
L- Chris Stratton (1-4)

Fresno home runs: Max Stassi (4, solo in 6th), D.J. Fisher (16, 2-run in 8th)

David Martinez had a fine outing and D.J. Fisher continues his mastery of PCL pitching.

Martinez allowed an unearned run on 6 hits, walked 1, and struck out 3 in 7 innings of work. The only hit that Brian Holmes allowed in the 8th was a solo homer to Ryder Jones. Holmes also struck out 2 in the inning. Aaron West struck out 2 in a 1-2-3 9th.

Alejandro Garcia doubled to lead off the 3rd and scored Fresno's first run on a Tyler White groundout. The Grizzlies capitalized on a bases-loaded, no out situation to start the 5th and seized control of the game by scoring 4 runs in the inning. Tony Kemp hit an RBI single, then White followed with a sac fly, which prompted a Sacramento pitching change. Preston Tucker greeted the new pitcher with an RBI single, and Kemp wound up scoring when D.J. Fisher beat a double play attempt. Max Stassi smacked a homer to lead off the 6th, and finally, in the 8th inning, Garcia scored when Tucker grounded into a force play and Fisher capped it off with a 2-run shot.

Stassi reached in all 5 of his plate appearances, going 2-2 with 3 walks. White (2B, 2 RBI) and Fisher (2-R HR, 3 RBI) both went 2-4, and Garcia finished 3-4 with a double and 3 runs scored.

The next stop on Fresno's season-long roadtrip is El Paso. Dean Deetz takes on Zach Lee in game 1, which starts at 7:05 Mountain.

Corpus Christi 11, Frisco 6

W- Brock Dykxhoorn (1-3)
L- David Ledbetter (1-4)

CC home runs: J.D. Davis 2 (16; grand slam in 4th, solo in 7th), Jason Martin (2, 9 season; 2-run in 7th)

The Hooks scored in fewer innings on Thursday, but they put up more runs in the innings which they scored.

Trent Woodward singled to lead off the 2nd, advanced to 3rd when Jack Mayfield hit into a double play attempt that Frisco botched, and scored Corpus Christi's first run on a wild pitch. Mayfield advanced to 3rd on a Jason Martin single. Martin then stole 2nd, and Jamie Ritchie hit a 2-run single to put the Hooks in front.

The Roughriders responded with 3 of their own in the top of the 4th to regain the lead, but Corpus responded with 5 in the bottom of the frame. Kyle Tucker drew a bases-loaded walk and J.D. Davis landed a haymaker when he launched a grand slam. Davis led off the bottom of the 7th with a solo blast and Martin capped off the scoring with a 2-run homer.

Davis (2 HR, 5 RBI), Martin (2-R HR, 2 R, SB), Ritchie (2 RBI), and Tony Nuñez (R) all finished with 2 hits on the evening.

Cy Sneed went 4.1 innings and allowed 6 runs on 8 hits (2 solos and a 3-run homer), walked 1, and struck out 4. The bullpen picked him up with 4.2 scoreless to close out the game. Jacob Dorris allowed a hit, but he got the final two outs of the 5th and spared Sneed from further damage. Brock Dykxhoorn allowed 4 hits, walked 2, and struck out 7 in 3.1 innings, and Ryan Thompson allowed a single to the first man he faced in the 9th, which loaded the bases, but he got the final two outs of the game without further incident.

Framber Valdez makes his Texas League debut tonight at 7:05. He'll go up against Yohander Mendez.

Wilmington 4, Buies Creek 3 in 15 innings

W- Franco Terrero (1-3)
L- Howie Brey (0-1)

BC home runs: None.

The Blue Rocks got a run in the bottom of the 9th to tie, and it took a while, but they also walked off with the win in the 15th.

Jake Rogers put Buies Creek on the board with a sac fly in the 6th and Myles Straw ripped a 2-run triple in the 7th. The two of them went 2-6 on the evening. Spencer Johnson and Pat Porter both had 3 hits and scored a run. Buies Creek left the bases loaded in the top of the 15th.

Walks doomed Jorge Alcala, who otherwise pitched well in his 4 innings. He allowed 2 runs (1 earned) and just 1 hit, but he also issued 6 walks while striking out 4. Sebastian Kessay was the first man out of the Carolina Stros' bullpen and threw a 1-2-3 5th inning. Yoanys Quiala tagged in for 4 innings and allowed the tying run (which was unearned) on 3 hits, walked 1, and struck out 7. Nick Hernandez allowed 2 hits, walked 1, and fanned 2 over 3 scoreless. Howie Brey pitched 2.1 innings and allowed the winning run on 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1.

Framber Valdez was originally scheduled to start tonight's game... but he's in Corpus now. His replacement will face A.J. Puckett at 7:05 Eastern.

Wisconsin 8, Quad Cities 3

W- Jordan Desguin (4-2)
L- Dustin Hunt (0-5)
S- Parker Berberet (3)

QC home runs: None.

The Banditos were foiled in their bid to sweep the series as the Timber Rattlers rattled off 7 of their 8 runs in a 4-inning span.

Dustin Hunt pitched 4 innings and allowed 4 runs (3 earned) on 7 hits (2 solo homers), walked 2, and struck out 1. Kevin Hill was the first man out of the Quad Cities bullpen and allowed 3 runs on 4 hits in 1.1 innings. Lucas Williams came on and pitched the final 2.2 innings following a 56-minute rain delay, allowing an unearned run on a wild pitch strikeout/error, a single, walked 1, and struck out 4.

Jonathan Arauz put Quad Cities on the board with an RBI triple in the 3rd and trotted home on a Daz Cameron double. Marcos Almonte drove in the River Bandits' other run with an RBI single in the 4th. Almonte, Ray Henderson, and Arauz all went 2-4 on the evening.

Quad Cities wraps up its tour of Wisconsin with 3 games in Beloit. First pitch is at 7:00.

DSL Astros Blue 8, DSL Red Sox 2

W- Fredis Guerrero (1-0)
L- Junior Figueroa (0-1)

Blue home runs: None.

The Blue team removed all doubts regarding the outcome of this game with 5 runs in the 8th.

Ozziel Sanchez-Galan opened the scoring with an RBI triple in the 1st and came home on a Ronny Rafael groundout. Yorbin Ceuta scored on a wild pitch in the 6th.

Rafael doubled to lead off the 8th and scored on an Anthony Rodriguez double. Rhandall Sanchez chipped in with an RBI single, and Yeuris Ramirez ripped an RBI double. Kendy Moya capped off the day with a 2-run triple. Rodriguez went 2-4 and was the only player on either side with a multi-hit game.

Nivaldo Rodriguez went 4 innings and allowed 2 unearned runs on 3 hits, walked 1, and struck out 4. Gustavo Almonte worked around a hit to throw a scoreless 5th, striking out 1. Fredis Guerrero walked 1 and fanned 5 over 4 scoreless to get the win.

DSL Dodgers2 6, DSL Astros Orange 4

W- Raul Tales (1-0)
L- Carlos Quintero (0-1)
S- Elio Serrano (1)

Orange home runs: None.

The Orange team only allowed one scoring inning. Unfortunately, that was all the scoring the Dodgers needed.

Christian Mejias allowed 2 hits, walked 2, and struck out 2 in 4 innings. The 5th proved to be a nightmare as Carlos Quintero and Fredy Medina combined to issue 6 walks in the inning. Quintero bore the brunt as all 6 runs were charged to him; 3 were earned and 2 were inherited runners charged to him. He got 2 outs in the inning, allowing a hit and striking out 1. Medina got the final out, but not before allowing a hit and walking 2. Jose Alberto Rivera allowed 3 hits, walked 1, and struck out 3 in 3 innings.

Leonardo Gonzalez opened the scoring with an RBI single in the 3rd. In the 7th inning, Gerry Castillo ripped an RBI triple and scored on a Hector Martinez double. Martinez scored on a botched pickoff attempt.

Team Orange faces the Dodgers 2 again at 10:30 AM Eastern.
