Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Sunday, May 27, 2018

El Paso 2, Fresno 0

W- Eric Yardley (2-0)
L- Trent Thornton (3-3)
S- Luis Castillo (3)

Fresno home runs: None.

The Grizzlies were held in check on Sunday.

Trent Thornton turned in a solid outing, but unfortunately for him, he did not receive any kind of run support. Thornton went six innings and allowed two runs on three hits (solo homer), walked two, and struck out eight. Buddy Boshers struck out one in a 1-2-3 7th, and Matt Ramsey allowed two hits and struck out one over two scoreless innings.

Cody Bohanek went 2-4 out of the #9 spot in the order. Fresno drew six walks and only struck out twice on offense, but they couldn't get much of anything going.

Rogelio Armenteros will take on Jesse Scholtens in game four of this series. First pitch is at 4:05 Pacific.

Corpus Christi 6, Tulsa 3

W- Alex Winkelman (2-2)
L- Mitchell White (0-2)
S- Erasmo Pinales (2)

CC home runs: Taylor Jones (8, solo in 1st), Randy César (6, solo in 6th)

Both teams had innings in which they scored either one run or two runs. Corpus had two pairs of these innings while Tulsa had just one.

The one run that Alex Winkelman allowed in his five innings came on a solo homer hit by D.J. Peters in the 1st. He allowed one other hit, walked four and struck out seven. Chris Nunn allowed two hits and struck out four over two scoreless innings. Ralph Garza Jr. was next out of the bullpen and in 1.1 innings, he had an unearned run charged to him and struck out two. It got a little challenging in the 9th as Erasmo Pinales allowed a run of his own on three hits, along with one of Garza's runs, but he was able to get the last two outs of the game, one via strikeout.

Both teams got a run in the 1st inning via the home run; Taylor Jones demolished a Mitchell White offering to put Corpus Christi on the board. Ryne Birk walked to lead off the 2nd. He then stole second and scored on a Stephen Wrenn double. Jamie Ritchie joined Wrenn on the bases by drawing a walk, and then they proceeded to advance a base by stealing them. Aníbal Sierra brought Wrenn in with a groundout. Randy César extended his hitting streak to 20 games by launching a solo home run in the 6th inning. The Hooks got a couple of runs in the 7th on a pair of RBI singles from Alex De Goti and Myles Straw. Jones, Ritchie, and De Goti all finished with two hits on the evening. César is the second player in the system to have a 20-game hitting streak; Tony Kemp had a 20-game hitting streak from April 23 to May 14.

The Hooks have today off. They'll begin a three-game series in Springfield tomorrow evening.

Buies Creek 1, Lynchburg 0

W- Brandon Bielak (4-3)
L- Justin Garza (2-2)
S- Hector Perez (1)

BC home runs: None.

There was only one run in this game and it belonged to Buies Creek.

J.J. Matijevic singled to lead off the 2nd and scored the only run of the day on a double from Chas McCormick, which was the only extra-base hit from either side.

Brandon Bielak allowed two hits and struck out six over five shutout frames and Hector Perez completed the shutout by not allowing a hit over the final four innings. Perez walked two and struck out three during his stint on the mound.

Carson LaRue will start the series finale. He'll face Sam Hentges at 6:00 Eastern.

Quad Cities 8, Peoria 3

W- Parker Mushinski (2-0)
L- Alvaro Seijas (1-3)

QC home runs: Mike Papierski (2, 2-run in 1st), Colton Shaver (5, 2-run in 8th)

The Banditos got out to a fast start and had to withstand a bit of a run from the Chiefs, but a three-run 8th inning gave them the breathing room they needed.

Corey Julks opened the scoring with an RBI single in the 1st and on the ensuing error, Bryan de la Cruz was able to score another run. It took a little while, but Julks managed to come home when Mike Papierski smacked a home run. Roman Garcia added an RBI single in the 3rd inning. Papierski led off the 8th with a single and one batter later, Colton Shaver launched a homer. After Garcia went down for the first out of the inning, Jonathan Lacroix walked. He moved to third on a Jake Meyers double and scored the final run of the night on a single from de la Cruz.

Meyers went 3-5 and hit two doubles. Julks, de la Cruz, Papierski, Shaver, and Lacroix all finished with two hits.

Parker Mushinski went five innings and allowed three runs on eight hits, walked two, and struck out three. The bullpen shut it down over the last four innings. Adam Bleday walked one and struck out four in three innings, and Carlos Sanabria worked around a hit to throw a scoreless 9th, striking out one.

Leovanny Rodriguez will start the series finale for Quad Cities. He'll face Zach Prendergast at 5:15.
