Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Monday, April 30, 2018

It was a light slate on the final day of April as both A clubs were off.

Fresno 11, Salt Lake 4

W- Trent Thornton (2-1)
L- Osmer Morales (1-2)

Fresno home runs: Tyler White (6, 2-run in 4th)

Fresno put this game away with five runs in the final two innings.

David Paulino made his season debut and allowed three runs (two earned) on four hits, walked two, and struck out five in three innings of work. Trent Thornton tagged in for four innings and allowed a run on three hits, walked two, and struck out five. James Hoyt pitched the final two innings, allowing a hit, walking one, and striking out one in a scoreless outing.

A.J. Reed put the Grizzlies on the board in the 3rd when he got plunked with the bases loaded. J.D. Davis hustled to beat a double play, which allowed Kyle Tucker to score, and then Garrett Stubbs tied the game at 3 with an RBI single. The Grizzlies took the lead with three more runs in the 4th as Tucker ripped an RBI double and Tyler White followed with a two-run homer. They'd put this game away in the 8th when Drew Ferguson ripped a two-run double and came around to score on Reed's single, and Little Tuck capped off the evening with a two-run double in the 9th.

Tucker finished 3-5 on the night with two run-producing doubles and scored twice. Davis, Stubbs, and Jon Kemmer all had two hits; both of Kemmer's were doubles.

Cy Sneed takes on John Lamb in game 2 of this series. First pitch is at 6:35 Mountain.

Frisco 2, Corpus Christi 1 in 12 innings

W- Brady Feigl (1-0)
L- Kevin Hill (0-1)
S- Ryne Slack (1)

CC home runs: Carmen Benedetti (2, solo in 7th)

The Hooks had their chances but all they could muster up in 12 innings was a single, solitary run. And so, Corpus Christi lost to Arlington's AA team for the first time this season.

Ryan Hartman went 5.1 innings and the one run he allowed came on a solo homer hit by Correlle Prime in the 5th. He allowed two other hits, walked one, and struck out seven. Erasmo Pinales was the first man out of the Corpus bullpen and allowed a hit, walked one, and struck out two over 2.2 scoreless innings. Kevin Hill was next and he allowed the go-ahead run (as always, the runner on second in extra innings is charged as an unearned run) on a sac fly, a single, walked two, and struck out four in his 3.2 innings of work. Sean Stutzman got the final out of the 12th.

Carmen Benedetti whacked a solo home run in the 7th which tied the game at 1. Unfortunately, that turned out to be the Hooks' only scoring play. Myles Straw, Stephen Wrenn, and Randy César all finished 2-5.

Corpus begins a new month on the road as they'll play a couple of four-game series in Midland and then San Antonio. Why it isn't San Antonio first and then Midland, I'll never know, but whatever... the schedule is what it is. The Hooks will send TBA to the mound to face Ben Bracewell at 6:30.

Buies Creek was off

Hector Perez will start the first of a three-game series against Down East. He'll face Emerson Martinez at 7:00 Eastern.

Quad Cities was off

The Banditos are in Midland, Michigan as they'll start a three-game set with the Great Lakes Loons. César Rosado will get the start; first pitch is at 7:05 Eastern.
