Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Saturday, May 26, 2018

Well, the NBA got their game sevens. Hope they're happy.

Let's play two in the Quad Cities!

El Paso 4, Fresno 3

W- T.J. Weir (2-0)
L- Mike Hauschild (2-5)
S- Robert Stock (1)

Fresno home runs: A.J. Reed (10, solo in 8th)

The Grizzlies got their bats going in the late stages of this game and very nearly erased a 4-0 deficit. The operative words being "very nearly."

Mike Hauschild threw seven innings and allowed four runs (three earned) on four hits, walked one, and struck out nine. Kent Emanuel allowed two hits over two scoreless innings.

Fresno loaded the bases to start off the 7th, but they could only manage to get one run across... when Nick Tanielu scored while Alejandro Garcia grounded into a double play. In the 8th, A.J. Reed launched a solo homer and Tanielu hit an RBI single.

Tanielu finished 2-3 on the night, while Tim Federowicz hit two doubles in his four trips to the plate.

Tyler White failed to reach base for the first time this season. He had an evening to forget as he went 0-4 with a couple of strikeouts. The second strikeout led off the 8th and he was not satisfied with the ruling, and his dissent resulted in getting him the heave-ho.

Trent Thornton will face Chris Huffman in game three. First pitch is at 1:05 Pacific.

Corpus Christi 7, Tulsa 2

W- Framber Valdez (2-1)
L- Logan Bawcom (0-2)
S- Carlos Sierra (1, 3 season)

CC home runs: Alex De Goti (2, 3-run in 8th)

The Drillers got two in the 1st and nothing more. Meanwhile, Corpus got a run back in their half of the 1st and scored the remainder of the runs in this game.

Ryne Birk put the Hooks on the board with a sac fly in the bottom of the 1st and grounded into a force out that allowed Myles Straw to score in the 3rd inning. Randy César and Taylor Jones hit RBI singles in the 5th and the 7th, respectively, and Alex De Goti iced this game with a three-run blast in the 8th.

Straw went 5-5 with a couple of doubles, scored three runs, and stole a base (31). César finished 3-4 and extended his hitting streak to 19 games.

Framber Valdez shook off a two-run 1st inning (one of the runs was unearned) and went on to throw six innings. He allowed four hits, walked two, and struck out six during his time on the hill. Sean Stutzman allowed a hit and walked three in 1.2 scoreless, and Carlos Sierra allowed a hit, walked one, and struck out two in the final 1.1 innings.

Alex Winkelman faces Mitchell White in the series finale. First pitch is at 6:05.

Lynchburg 3, Buies Creek 1

W- Eli Morgan (1-0)
L- Jorge Alcala (1-4)
S- James Karinchak (3)

BC home runs: Ronnie Dawson (5, solo in 4th)

The Hillcats scored in three innings, the Carolina Stros scored in one. My math is a bit rusty, but I'm highly confident that three is greater than one.

Ronnie Dawson went 2-4 and his solo homer in the 4th was Buies Creek's only scoring play.

Jorge Alcala didn't do terribly as he allowed two runs on a couple of solo homers, one other hit, and struck out two in his five innings, but he didn't get much help from his offense. Abdiel Saldaña allowed a run on six hits and struck out two over the last four innings.

Brandon Bielak takes on Justin Garza in game three of this series. First pitch is at 2:00 Eastern.

Game 1: Quad Cities 12, Peoria 0

W- Yohan Ramirez (4-3)
L- Paul Balestrieri (1-2)

QC home runs: Miguelangel Sierra (2, 2-run in 2nd)

The first game of the doubleheader was pretty fun for the Banditos as everyone in the lineup scored a run. Miguelangel Sierra and Jonathan Arauz both went 3-4 in game one.


Yohan Ramirez allowed two hits, walked one, and struck out four over six shutout frames and Dariel Aquino walked one and struck out the side in the 7th to complete the shutout.

Game 2: Peoria 5, Quad Cities 1 in 8 innings

W- Bryan Dobzanski (3-1)
L- Luis Garcia (1-2)

QC home runs: None.

The Banditos held the Chiefs for 14 innings on Saturday before they finally cracked. All of the scoring was done in one inning, and Peoria scored more in their half of the 8th.

Colton Shaver started the 8th at second and scored Quad Cities' only run of game two on a wild pitch. Jake Meyers went 3-4, which accounted for all of their hits in game two.

Cristian Javier allowed one hit, hit a batter, and struck out nine over six shutout innings. Luis Garcia threw the last two innings. He got through the 7th scot-free, but Peoria got him in the 8th. Garcia allowed five runs (four earned) on four hits, walked one, and struck out one.

Parker Mushinski will go up against Alvaro Seijas in game four of this series. First pitch is at 5:15.
