Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Friday, April 27, 2018

Friday featured dramatics and dominance on the mound.

Tacoma 3, Fresno 1

W- Casey Lawrence (2-1)
L- Kent Emanuel (2-1)
S- Erik Goeddel (4)

Fresno home runs: A.J. Reed (2, solo in 2nd)

The Grizzlies were held in check on Friday.

A.J. Reed's solo blast in the 2nd inning represented their only scoring play. Tony Kemp finished 2-4 with a stolen base, his seventh of the year.

Kent Emanuel went 5 innings and allowed two runs on six hits, walked one, and struck out 4. Reymin Guduan walked the bases loaded in the 6th, but he managed to escape, striking out one in the inning. Andrew Thome issued a walk and struck out one over two scoreless innings, and James Hoyt allowed a run on two hits while striking out the side in the 9th.

Mike Hauschild will take on Ariel Miranda in game 4. First pitch is at 7:05 Pacific.

Corpus Christi 4, Frisco 3 in 10 innings

W- Alex Winkelman (1-0)
L- Adam Choplick (0-1)

CC home runs: None.

After getting shut out for eight innings, the Hooks' offense came alive and snatched a victory from right under the Roughriders' noses.

Akeem Bostick allowed a run on four hits, walked two, and fanned six in his 5.2 innings of work. Alex Winkelman tagged in for 4.1 innings and allowed two runs (one earned) on two hits, walked three, and struck out six.

Myles Straw led off the bottom of the 9th with a single and scored the tying run on Yordan Alvarez's double. Taylor Jones got a free pass to first, but Nick Tanielu grounded into a double play and that's how we got extra innings. The Riders scored twice in the top of the 10th to break the tie.

Tanielu started the 10th in scoring position. Ryne Birk flew out, but Lorenzo Quintana came through with an RBI double. Alex De Goti drew a walk, which prompted a Frisco pitching change. Arturo Michelena struck out, which threatened the comeback attempt, but Myles Straw kept the game alive by legging out an infield single to load the bases for Stephen Wrenn, who hit another infield single to score Quintana. De Goti followed with the winning run when Frisco 3B Luis Marte threw the ball away. Wrenn finished 3-5 on the night while Straw finished 2-5.

Cionel Perez faces Brett Martin in game 2 of this series. First pitch is at 7:05.

Buies Creek 4, Frederick 0

W- Corbin Martin (2-0)
L- Brian Gonzalez (0-2)
S- Brett Adcock (1)

BC home runs: None.

Corbin Martin and Brett Adcock put on a show as they joined forces on a one-hitter.

Martin allowed the one hit, walked one, and struck out five in his five innings. Adcock finished things off, walking one and striking out nine over the final four frames. Martin, the former Aggie and Cy Ranch star, has allowed just four hits in 19 innings this season.

Ronnie Dawson walked to lead off the bottom of the 1st and then left the game, so Luis Payano took his place in the lineup and entered the game as the left fielder while Osvaldo Duarte slid over to center. Josh Rojas followed by opening the scoring with an RBI double. Rojas came home on the first of Chas McCormick's two RBI singles. Rojas led off the 3rd with the double and McCormick brought him home with his other RBI single. In the 7th, Aníbal Sierra drew a leadoff walk, stole second when Payano struck out, and scored the final run of the evening on Rojas' third double of the night. Rojas and McCormick were the only two players on either side to finish with more than one hit in the game.

Jorge Alcala will go up against Ofelky Peralta in game 2. First pitch is at 6:00 Eastern.

Quad Cities 6, Cedar Rapids 5 in 13 innings

W- Adam Bleday (2-1)
L- Jovani Moran (0-1)

QC home runs: Adrian Tovalin (2, 2-run in 12th)

Cedar Rapids forced extra innings but in the end, the Banditos walked off with the victory.

Four Quad Cities pitchers combined to strike out 20 in this one. Peter Solomon allowed two runs on four hits, walked two, and struck out seven in five innings. Yohan Ramirez was the first man out of the Banditos bullpen and allowed a run on two hits, walked two, and struck out four in 3.1 innings. Robert Corniel came on for three innings and allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits while striking out seven, and Adam Bleday struck out two over 1.2 perfect frames.

Cody Bohanek put Quad Cities on the board in the 3rd in rather painful fashion when he got plunked with the bases loaded. One batter later, they took the lead when Gabriel Bracamonte reached on an error that resulted in two runs scoring. Those would be the last two runs for Quad Cities until extra innings; in the meantime, the Kernels scored in the 8th to tie and then scored twice in the 12th to take the lead. Bryan de la Cruz started the inning in scoring position and Adrian Tovalin tied the game by launching a home run to lead things off.

Bracamonte led off the bottom of the 13th in scoring position. Marcos Almonte and Jake Meyers joined him on the bases by drawing walks, and Corey Julks won the game via shrimp. That's a walk-off walk, if you're not familiar with the terminology. De La Cruz and Colton Shaver both finished 2-5 on the night.

They'll play two in Davenport today, with game one starting at 1:15. Luis Garcia will take on Randy Dobnak in the first game, while Cristian Javier faces Melvi Acosta in game two.
