Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Monday, June 11, 2018

Oklahoma City 5, Fresno 4 in 10 innings

W- Joe Broussard (4-1)
L- Andrew Thome (4-2)

The Grizzlies tied this game with two runs in the 9th... only to see the Dodgers ger their leadoff runner across in the first extra frame.

Josh James dazzled once again as he allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits (solo homer), walked two, and struck out 11 in six innings. Ralph Garza Jr. worked around a hit and a walk to throw a scoreless 7th, striking out one. James Hoyt threw a scoreless 8th, but OKC got to him in the 9th for a couple of runs, both of which were unearned. Hoyt allowed two hits and struck out two in his two innings.

Both teams scored a run in the 2nd; Fresno's came on a solo homer from Jack Mayfield. He added an RBI double to his ledger in the 5th inning and had accounted for all of the offensive production until the 9th inning.

Jon Kemmer hit a flare that turned into an RBI double that brought the Grizz to within one and after Drew Ferguson was intentionally walked to load the bases, Kyle Tucker tied the game with an RBI single. Mayfield and Kemmer both finished with two hits on the evening.

The Grizzlies have today off. They'll begin a three-game set in New Orleans tomorrow evening.

Corpus Christi 6, San Antonio 4

W- Cionel Perez (5-1)
L- Lake Bachar (0-3)
S- Riley Ferrell (5)

CC home runs: Alex De Goti 2 (7; 2-run in 4th, solo in 6th), Myles Straw (1, solo in 1st), Taylor Jones (11, solo in 4th)

The Hooks sent four out of the park as they creep closer to the Missions, who are right in front of them in the race for the Texas League South division's first-half crown and the playoff berth that comes with it. With this victory, Corpus is now one game behind San Antonio in the first-half standings.

Cionel Perez pitched five-plus innings and allowed two runs (one inherited runner charged to him) on four hits, walked four, and struck out seven. He threw five shutout innings, but unfortunately, ran out of gas in the 6th as he allowed the first four men he faced in the frame to reach. The Ferrells pitched the last four innings of the game with contrasting results. Justin allowed two runs on two hits, walked three, and struck out one in 1.2 innings, while Riley allowed a hit and struck out four over 2.1 scoreless to record his 5th save of the season.

Myles Straw opened the scoring when he smacked a homer to lead off the bottom of the 1st. Taylor Jones led off the 4th with a homer and Alex De Goti launched a two-run homer later in the frame. Jones drove in the only run that did not score on a home run when he ripped a double in the 5th. De Goti smacked his second homer of the evening, a solo shot, in the 6th inning. The three home run hitters all finished with two hits in this game.

Akeem Bostick will face Jerry Keel in the series finale. First pitch is at 7:05.

Buies Creek and Carolina was postponed

Due to rain. A doubleheader will be played Tuesday with game one beginning at 2:00 Eastern. Brett Adcock will take on Marcos Diplán in the afternoon session.

Peoria 1, Quad Cities 0

W- Jesús Cruz (1-1)
L- Jairo Solís (0-3)
S- Alvaro Seijas (1)

QC home runs: None.

There was one run in this game and it did not belong to Quad Cities. This game was theirs for the taking, but they stranded ten men on base.

Roman Garcia and Alfredo Angarita had two hits apiece out of the bottom two spots of the lineup.

Jairo Solís pitched well but was forced to take the loss. He allowed the one run on four hits, walked two, and struck out seven in his five innings of work. Humberto Castellanos allowed two hits in two innings and Brendan Feldmann worked around a hit to throw a scoreless 8th.

The Banditos are now two games behind Peoria for the second playoff spot in the first half. They'll begin a huge three-game set with Clinton, the West Division leaders, at 6:35.

DSL Braves 7, DSL Astros 5

W- Eudi Asencio (2-0)
L- Fabricio Reina (0-1)
S- Carlos Caminero (3)

DSL home runs: None.

The Academy has paid dearly for their poor starts this season. This time, the Braves hit back for six in the bottom of the 1st after the Astros had opened the scoring with two in the top of the inning.

Victor Mascai opened the scoring with an RBI single in the 1st and Javier Bermúdez scored on an error that allowed Rolando Espinosa to reach. They got two runs back in the 2nd on a sac fly from Jose Mendoza and an RBI single from Bermúdez. Marco van der Wijst scored on a wild pitch in the 7th.

Fabricio Reina struggled, and I will say no more. Bryan Solano allowed an unearned run (in addition to allowing the three runners he inherited from Reina to score), a hit, walked two, and struck out two in 1.1 innings. Valente Bellozo allowed one hit and fanned six over four scoreless. Alex Blanco allowed a run on two hits, walked one, and struck out three in two innings.
