Results for Saturday, July 22, 2017

Fresno 8, Round Rock 7

W- Jacob Dorris (1-0, 2-2 season)
L- James Dykstra (1-4)
S- Jordan Jankowski (8)

Fresno home runs: A.J. Reed (21, 3-run in 1st), Tyler White (19, solo in 4th)

The Grizzlies led 5-0 after the 2nd and 8-2 after the 5th, and then they had to endure some tense moments in the late innings as the Express chipped away at their lead. Fortunately, they pulled themselves together and escaped with the win.

Tyler White hit a one-out double in the 1st and scored the game's first run on a Teoscar Hernandez double. Preston Tucker walked, and then A.J. Reed whacked a 3-run homer. D.J. Fisher added an RBI single in the 2nd. White led off the bottom of the 4th with a homer, and Fisher added a 2-run single to his ledger in the 5th. White (2B, solo HR, 2 R) and Fisher (3 RBI) both finished 3-5. Max Stassi was 2-4 and scored a run out of the #9 spot.

Mike Hauschild went 4 innings and allowed a run on 4 hits, walked 3, and struck out 4. Jacob Dorris and Kevin Comer pitched 2 innings apiece; Dorris allowed an unearned run on 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 3, while Comer allowed 3 runs (1 earned) on 3 hits (solo homer), walked 2, and struck out 2. Jordan Jankowski allowed 2 hits in the 9th, one of which was a 2-run homer to Will Middlebrooks that cut Fresno's lead to one run. Fortunately, the homer proved to be a rally killer, as Jankowski struck out the next three batters to end it.

Rogelio Armenteros gets the start in game 3 of this series and he'll go up against Tyler Wagner at 5:05 Pacific.

Corpus Christi and Midland was postponed

Due to rain. A doubleheader is scheduled to start at noon with Franklin Perez facing Dustin Hurlbutt in game 1. Josh James takes on A.J. Puk in game 2.

Buies Creek 6, Carolina 2

W- Elieser Hernandez (3-3, 4-3 season)
L- Frank Lopez (2-4)
S- Brett Adcock (1)

BC home runs: None.

Elieser Hernandez turned in a fine outing in his return to the Carolina League and the Carolina Stros blew this game open with 5 runs in the 4th.

Hernandez only allowed one hit in his 5 innings of work, a solo homer to Monte Harrison, and struck out 5. Brett Adcock allowed one run on a solo homer hit by Troy Stokes, two other hits, and struck out 5 in the final 4 innings to earn the save.

Anthony Hermelyn walked to lead off the 4th and Randy César joined him on the bases by reaching on an error. They both advanced a base on a wild pitch that Spencer Johnson struck out on. Alex De Goti put Buies Creek on the board with an RBI single, and then stole 2nd. Tyler Wolfe walked to load the bases for Myles Straw, who hit an RBI single. Stephen Wrenn and Yordan Alvarez walked in two more runs, and Taylor Jones capped off the outburst with a sac fly. Alvarez tripled to lead off the 7th and scored on César's double.

César went 3-4, while Alvarez (3B, RBI, R) and Straw (RBI, R, SB) had 2 hits apiece. Straw now has 28 stolen bases on the year.

Cionel Perez will take on Marcos Diplan in the series finale. First pitch is at 2:00 Eastern.

Quad Cities 6, Great Lakes 5

W- César Rosado (3-1, 4-1 season)
L- Jeremiah Muhammad (0-1)
S- Salvador Montaño (4)

QC home runs: None.

The Banditos took control thanks to a 5-run bottom of the 7th and then had to withstand an 8th-inning rally from the Loons to take the opener.

Chuckie Robinson put Quad Cities on the board with an RBI single in the 1st inning. This was their only scoring play until the big 7th inning.

Marcos Almonte hit a one-out single, stole 2nd (11), and scored the first run of the inning on Chas McCormick's single. A Ronnie Dawson walk and a Carmen Benedetti single loaded the bases and prompted a Great Lakes pitching change. Robinson greeted the new pitcher with a 2-run single. Josh Rojas reached on an error to re-load the bases. Benedetti got forced out at the plate, but a wild pitch allowed Robinson to score. Daz Cameron capped off the inning with an RBI single.

Dawson (2 R), Robinson (3 RBI, R), Almonte (2B, R), and McCormick (2B, RBI, R) all finished 2-4 in this one.

The two runs that Cristian Javier allowed in his 5 innings came on a homer hit by Cody Thomas in the 1st. He allowed 5 other hits, walked 1, and struck out 5. César Rosado was the first man out of the Quad Cities bullpen and went 2.2 innings, allowing 3 runs (2 earned, 1 inherited runner charged to him) on 3 hits, walking 3, and striking out 6. Salvador Montaño got a 4-out save, walking 1 and striking out 2 in the process.

Carlos Sanabria faces Jordan Sheffield in game 2. First pitch is at 5:15.

Tri-City 5, Lowell 1

W- Dallas Keuchel (1-0)
L- Tanner Houck (0-2)
S- Kit Scheetz (1)

TC home runs: Abraham Toro-Hernandez (5, solo in 7th)

It looks like Dallas Keuchel's second rehab appearance went without a hitch. Keuchel allowed a run on 3 hits and struck out 5 in 5 innings and he looks to be on track to rejoin the Astros during their current roadtrip.

Kit Scheetz followed Keuchel out of the bullpen and shut it down, allowing just one hit and striking out 6 over the last 4 innings.

Neither team posted a crooked number on offense, so the ValleyCats simply scored in more innings than the Spinners to win this game.

Abraham Toro-Hernandez walked and then scored the first run of the evening on a J.J. Matijevic double in the 1st inning. This play occurred again in the 3rd, only Toro singled before Matijevic ripped a double to bring him in. Miguelangel Sierra ripped an RBI double in the 6th, Toro launched a solo homer in the 7th, and Jonathan Arauz scored the last run of the game on an error following a Toro single.

Toro finished 3-4 and scored 3 runs, while Matijevic's two doubles brought Toro in each time.

Tri-City begins a 3-game series in Vermont tonight at 5:05 Eastern.

Pulaski 10, Greeneville 6

W- Abel Duarte (3-1)
L- Gerardo Bojorquez (2-1)

Greeneville home runs: Colton Shaver (4, 2-run in 2nd)

The Yankees seized control of this one with a 6-1 run over the last 4 innings.

Colton Shaver smacked a 2-run homer in the 1st to put the Appy Astros in front. They got 3 in the 2nd on a Reiny Beltre RBI single and a 2-run double from Frankeny Fernandez. Brody Westmoreland hit an RBI single in the 9th. Beltre (RBI, R) and Fernandez (2B, 2 RBI, R) both had 2 hits on the evening.

Jheyson Caraballo went 2.1 innings and allowed 4 runs (3 earned) on 3 hits (2 solo homers), walked 4, and struck out 3. Ian Hardman was the first man out of the Greeneville bullpen and struck out 3 in 2.2 perfect innings. Gerardo Bojorquez pitched the last 4 innings and allowed 6 runs (3 earned) on 5 hits (2-run homer), walked 3, and struck out 6.

Hansel Paulino will get the start in game 3 as the Appy Astros look to avoid a sweep. First pitch is at 6:00 Eastern.

GCL Astros 5, GCL Marlins 1 in 7 innings

W- Maikel Sepulveda (2-2)
L- Miguel De Los Santos (1-1)

GCL home runs: None.

This game was called early due to rain.

Juan Piñeda opened the scoring with a single in the 1st, then Alfredo Angarita ripped an RBI double in the 2nd inning. The Palm Beach Stros got 3 in the 5th on an RBI double from Ozziel Sanchez-Galan, an RBI triple from Piñeda, and an RBI single from Carlos Machado. Piñeda, Machado, and Carlos Diaz all finished 2-4 on the day.

Chad Donato allowed 2 hits, walked 2, and struck out 4 in 3 innings of work. Saul Martinez allowed a hit in a scoreless 4th, and Maikel Sepulveda allowed a run on 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1 in 2.2 innings.

Flaer Gonzalez allowed 3 runs on 3 hits, walked 1, and struck out 2 in 3 innings. Manny Ramirez, Denilson Lugo, and Jonger Ochoa all went 2 innings. Ramirez allowed a run on a sac fly, a single, walked 4, and struck out 1. Lugo allowed 4 hits, and Ochoa allowed a run on 2 hits and walked 1.

DSL Astros Orange 2, DSL Rangers1 1

W- Yulian Frontado (1-1)
