Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Sunday, August 20, 2017

Let's play two in Palm Beach!

Or not.

The GCL Astros and GCL Cardinals only got one inning in before rain suspended play. They'll continue this game on Friday.

Reno 11, Fresno 8

W- Louis Coleman (1-1)
L- Brendan McCurry (4-1)

Fresno home runs: Tyler White 2 (23; 2-run in 3rd, 2-run in 5th)

The Aces took control with a 6-run 8th.

Both teams scored 2 runs in the opening frame; Fresno's two came on a Tyler White RBI single and a double play that allowed Colin Walsh to score. Walsh ripped an RBI double in the 3rd and one batter later, White smacked a 2-run homer. White launched another 2-run homer in the 5th inning, and Tony Kemp smacked an RBI double in the 9th. Kemp finished 4-5 on the evening, while White went 3-5.

Kent Emanuel went 4 innings and allowed 4 runs on 8 hits, walked 2, and struck out 2. Dayan Diaz was the first man out of the Fresno bullpen and allowed a run on 2 hits and struck out 3 in 2 innings. Brendan McCurry and Reymin Guduan both pitched an inning apiece. McCurry threw a 1-2-3 7th but was shelled in the 8th to the tune of 5 runs (1 inherited runner charged to him) on 5 hits. Guduan took ownership of the 8th and allowed a run on 3 hits (3-run homer; 1 run charged to McCurry) and struck out 1.

Cy Sneed takes on Anthony Banda in game 3 of this series. First pitch is at 7:05 Pacific.

Springfield 7, Corpus Christi 2

W- Austin Gomber (9-7)
L- Akeem Bostick (4-6, 6-7 season)

CC home runs: Ryne Birk (5, 13 season; 2-run in 2nd)

The Hooks got on the board first, but it was all Cardinals afterwards.

Ryne Birk had an excellent series as he homered in all three games: he clubbed a grand slam on Friday, launched a solo shot on Saturday, and whacked a 2-run blast on Sunday. That, unfortunately, was Corpus Christi's only scoring play of the day. Birk and Kyle Tucker both finished 2-4.

Akeem Bostick went 2.1 innings and allowed 6 runs on 9 hits while striking out 2. Ryan Thompson was the first man out of the Corpus bullpen and allowed a hit and struck out 1 over 2.2 scoreless innings. Cionel Perez allowed 2 runs on 4 hits (solo homer) and struck out 1 in 3 innings.

After a day off, Corpus welcomes Midland to Whataburger Field for 4 starting Tuesday. Yoanys Quiala faces Grant Holmes in the first game.

Down East 3, Buies Creek 0

W- Kyle Cody (2-0)
L- Carson LaRue (0-2, 12-6 season)
S- Jeff Springs (1)

BC home runs: None.

The Carolina Stros were swept out of Kinston to end a rough roadtrip in which they dropped 6 of 7.

Rodrigo Ayarza finished 2-3; Anthony Hermelyn had the only other Buies Creek hit. Carmen Benedetti reached base twice by drawing a couple of walks.

Carson LaRue met the minimum requirements for a quality start, allowing 9 hits, walking 1, and striking out 2. Erasmo Pinales allowed 2 hits and struck out 3 over the final 2 innings.

Buies Creek has Monday off. They'll welcome Lynchburg to Campbell University for 3 games starting Tuesday.

Quad Cities 13, Wisconsin 3

W- Kit Scheetz (2-0, 2-3 season)
L- Victor Diaz (2-5)
S- Cristian Javier (1)

QC home runs: Troy Sieber (7, solo in 1st), Josh Rojas (10, 3-run in 3rd), Chuckie Robinson (14, grand slam in 4th)

The Banditos cruised to a Sunday win to take the lead in this series.

Kit Scheetz allowed 4 hits and struck out 6 over 5 shutout frames. The Timber Rattlers spoiled the shutout with a 3-run homer off Cristian Javier in the 8th. In 4 innings, Javier allowed one other hit, walked 3, and struck out 3.

Troy Sieber kicked things off with a solo shot in the 1st inning. Sieber drew a two-out walk in the 3rd and Daz Cameron joined him on the bases after getting plunked. Josh Rojas was next, and he smacked a 3-run homer.

Quad Cities scored 4 in the 4th off an RBI single from Ronnie Dawson and a bases-clearing double from Daz. Chuckie Robinson drove in 4 more in the 5th with a grand slam, and Sieber, who drove in the Banditos' first run, drove in their last run with a single in the 8th. The three home run hitters (Sieber, Robinson, and Rojas) all finished with 2 hits on the day; Sieber and Robinson both scored 3 runs.

Quad Cities and Wisconsin will conclude their series at 12:05. Yohan Ramirez takes on Carlos Herrera.

Tri-City 13, Brooklyn 10

W- Hunter Martin (2-0)
L- Tony Dibrell (0-1)
S- Luis Ramirez (2)

TC home runs: Adrian Tovalin (5, 9 season; 2-run in 1st), J.J. Matijevic (5, solo in 4th)

The ValleyCats came out on top in a crazy back-and-forth affair on Sunday.

Gabriel Bracamonte was the only player in the Tri-City lineup to go hitless and not score a run, but he still chipped in with a sac fly in a 5-run 2nd. Adrian Tovalin whacked a 2-run homer in the 1st to put the ValleyCats on the board and lashed a 2-run double in the 2nd inning.


Alex House went 2 innings and allowed 5 runs (3 earned) on 7 hits and struck out 1. Parker Mushinski was the first man out of the bullpen and went 2.1 innings, allowing 4 runs (3 earned, 2 inherited runners charged to him) on 4 hits, walking 2, and striking out 3. Hunter Martin was next, and he allowed a run on 6 hits and struck out 4 in 3.2 innings. Luis Ramirez struck out 1 in a 1-2-3 9th for the save.

Adam Bleday faces Nicolas Debora in the series finale. First pitch is at 7:00 Eastern.

Jheyson Caraballo allowed a run on 5 hits, walked 1, and struck out 2 in 4 innings. Johsson Arias went 1.2 innings and allowed 3 runs on 4 hits, walked 1, and struck out 2. Cole Watts pitched the final 3.1 innings, allowing 2 runs on 2 hits, walking 2, and striking out 5.
