Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Wednesday, May 30, 2018

Fresno 12, Albuquerque 11 in 11 innings

W- Jacob Dorris (2-0)
L- Austin House (1-2)

Fresno home runs: Kyle Tucker 2 (7; solo in 1st, 2-run in 2nd), Jack Mayfield (5, 2-run in 1st), Jon Kemmer (8, 2-run in 5th)

The Grizzlies saw an 8-3 lead vanish and needed extra innings to escape with the win. They thought they had it won in the 10th with three runs, but the Isotopes managed to get all of those runs back to extend the game. Fortunately, Fresno was able to push their leadoff runner across in the 11th with a sac fly.

Everyone in the Fresno lineup recorded a hit; Tyler White was the only player in the lineup to not score a run.

Brock Dykxhoorn went four innings and allowed three runs on four hits, walked two, and struck out six. Andrew Thome was the first man out of the Grizzlies bullpen and allowed a run on a single, walked one, and struck out one in two innings. Reymin Guduan came on for the 8th, but he was only able to get one out via strikeout as Albuquerque took him deep twice in the frame and got four runs. Guduan allowed one other hit and walked one. Brendan McCurry was next, and he allowed a hit, walked two (one intentionally), and struck out two in 1.2 innings. James Hoyt recorded a strikeout in a 1-2-3 9th. Jacob Dorris pitched two innings and allowed three runs (two earned) on two home runs in the 10th. He walked one and struck out one. It was a rough 10th, but Dorris had a slightly less stressful 11th as he got the one strikeout and induced the game-ending double play.

Cy Sneed gets the start in game two and he'll take on Antonio Senzatela at 6:35 Mountain.

Corpus Christi 11, Springfield 4

W- Justin Ferrell (2-1, 3-1 season)
L- Jake Woodford (2-6)

CC home runs: Taylor Jones 2 (10; 3-run in 1st, 2-run in 8th), Randy César (6, solo in 1st), Josh Rojas (3, 4 season; solo in 5th), Stephen Wrenn (3, 3-run in 7th)

The Hooks put on a show of force in the Ozarks as they launched five home runs which accounted for ten of the eleven runs they put on the scoreboard.

Two of those homers came off the bat of one Taylor Jones, who opened the scoring with a three-run blast in the 1st. His two-run shot in the 8th capped off the evening. Randy César wasted little time in extending his hitting streak as he sent a solo shot out in the 1st; his streak now stands at 22 games. Josh Rojas led off the 5th with a homer. César also drove in the only run that did not score on a home run with an RBI single in the 7th. Stephen Wrenn whacked a three-run homer later in the inning.

Both of Jones' hits left the ballpark. Rojas, César, Wrenn, and Alex De Goti all finished 3-5 on the evening; De Goti was a home run shy of the cycle, while Rojas and Wrenn were missing the triple. Myles Straw went 3-4, but he did not have a fun night on the bases as he was picked off first base twice and got tossed after arguing a caught stealing call in the 7th.

Corbin Martin and Justin Ferrell both pitched three innings. Martin did not allow a run in his three innings, but he had to labor through them. He allowed two hits, walked three, and struck out three. Oklahoma Ferrell allowed three runs on four hits (two-run homer), walked two, and struck out one. Erasmo Pinales pitched 1.2 innings and allowed an RBI single, issued a walk, committed a balk, and struck out five, four of which occurred in the 7th inning. Riley Ferrell retired the last four Springfield batters of the evening, striking out one of them.

Cionel Perez will get the start as the Hooks look for a sweep. He'll face a rehabbing Carlos Martinez at 7:10.

Down East 1, Buies Creek 0

W- Jonathan Hernandez (4-2)
L- Brandon Bailey (1-5)
S- C.D. Pelham (9)

BC home runs: None.

There was only one scoring play in this game. Unfortunately, it did not belong to the Carolina Stros.

Ronnie Dawson, Abraham Toro, and J.J. Matijevic had one hit apiece; Toro's was a double. Dawson also stole a base, his 18th of the season.

Brett Adcock allowed two hits and struck out six over five shutout frames. Brandon Bailey went 2.2 innings and allowed the one run, which was unearned due to an error, on a double. He allowed one other hit, walked four, and struck out two. Robert Corniel recorded the final out of the 8th inning.

TBA gets the start in the series finale. Whoever he is will face Christian Torres at 7:00 Eastern.

Clinton 13, Quad Cities 6

W- Chris Castellanos (3-0)
L- Jairo Solis (0-1)

QC home runs: Jake Meyers (5, led off game), Jake Adams (7, 2-run in 1st)

The Banditos got taken to the woodshed on Wednesday.

Jairo Solis would probably like a mulligan on his season debut. It was not a fun night for Quad Cities' pitchers and I think it would be for the best if I didn't elaborate any further.

The two Jakes launched home runs in the opening frame to open the scoring. Corey Julks ripped an RBI double in the 7th and scored on a Miguelangel Sierra single. Mike Papierski scored on a Roman Garcia groundout in the 8th. Sierra finished 3-5 on the night.

Yohan Ramirez will start the series finale. He'll go against Ryne Inman at 6:30.
