Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Thursday, August 24, 2017

Fresno 10, Tacoma 1

W- David Martinez (7-11)
L- Christian Bergman (9-4)

Fresno home runs: None.

On a special Taco Thursday, Fresno dominated Tacoma in all facets of the game and cruised to the win.

David Martinez allowed one run on a solo homer, one other hit, walked 2, and struck out 10 in 7 innings of work. Dayan Diaz allowed a hit and struck out 1 over the final 2 innings.

A.J. Reed opened the scoring with an RBI single in the 1st inning. The Tacos busted this one wide open with a pair of 4-run innings. They put up 4 in the 2nd thanks to Alejandro Garcia's 2-run double; he and Rico Noel scored on an error on a botched force out attempt.

Drew Ferguson walked to lead off the 3rd inning. He stole 2nd, advanced to 3rd base on a balk, and scored on an error that allowed Garrett Stubbs to reach. Stubbs scored when Tony Kemp grounded into a force out. Carlos Correa hit an RBI single and Kemp scored on an error. Correa drove in the final run of the night with a sac fly in the 5th.

Kemp, Ferguson, Stubbs, Garcia, and Noel all scored twice. Noel went 3-4 with a double, while Reed finished 2-5 on the night.

Lance McCullers makes his first rehab start at 7:05 Pacific.

Corpus Christi's doubleheader with Midland was canceled
Due to the threat of Hurricane Harvey. These were supposed to be the last two games between the Hooks and Hounds, so they won't be made up this year.

Corpus is in San Antonio for 4 starting tonight at 7:05 and Josh James is scheduled to take on Enyel De Los Santos. The Missions had a Pat Green post-game concert on the docket, but that's been nixed. The game is still set to go on, but this is most likely going to change.
