Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Tuesday, June 12, 2018

Let's play two in Buies Creek!

Fresno was off

The Grizzlies will start a three-game series in New Orleans tonight at 7:00. Brock Dykxhoorn will start the opener against Pablo Lopez.

This roadtrip apparently hasn't gotten off to a great start.

San Antonio 5, Corpus Christi 1

W- Jerry Keel (5-2)
L- Akeem Bostick (0-2)

CC home runs: Alex De Goti (8, solo in 7th)

Unfortunately, the Hooks had to settle for the split in this series. They are two games behind the Missions and their elimination number for the first half now stands at five.

Alex De Goti smacked a solo homer in the 7th which represented the only Corpus Christi run of the night. Jamie Ritchie went 2-4 with a double and Randy César extended his hitting streak in his last plate appearance once again. His single in the 9th brings his streak to 34 games.

Akeem Bostick went three innings and allowed three runs on seven hits, walked one, and struck out two. Alex Winkelman allowed a run on a single, walked two, and struck out one in the 4th. Framber Valdez pitched the last five innings and allowed a run on three hits, walked one, and struck out ten. It's the second time that Framber has recorded double-digit strikeouts in a game; he fanned 11 on June 28 last year when he was with Buies Creek.

Forrest Whitley will start the first of a four-game series in Midland. First pitch is at 6:30.

Game 1: Carolina 9, Buies Creek 4

W- Marcos Diplán (3-2)
L- Brett Adcock (3-3)

BC home runs: None.

Both teams scored in three different innings in the first game. Unfortunately, the Mudcats put up crooked numbers in all three of the innings in which they scored.

J.J. Matijevic led off the bottom of the 1st with a single and scored the first run of the afternoon session on a wild pitch that was also called ball four to Jake Adams. Kristian Trompiz hit a one-out single in the 2nd. He moved to second on a Chuckie Robinson groundout and scored thanks to two wild pitches. Abraham Toro smacked a two-run triple in the 5th inning.

Brett Adcock went four innings and allowed six runs (three earned) on five hits, walked three, and struck out three. Jesús Balaguer was the first man out of the Buies Creek bullpen and the three runs he allowed came on a homer hit by Cooper Hummel in the 5th. He allowed two other hits, walked three, and struck out five. Robert Corniel struck out one in a 1-2-3 7th inning.

Game 2: Buies Creek 2, Carolina 1

W- Brandon Bailey (2-6)
L- Conor Harber (1-3)
S- Ronel Blanco (3)

BC home runs: None.

The Carolina Stros earned the split by scoring in more innings than the Mudcats did in the evening session.

Osvaldo Duarte opened the scoring in game two with an RBI single in the 3rd inning. Abraham Toro scored when Kristian Trompiz grounded into a force out in the 6th.

Brandon Bailey allowed two hits, walked three, and struck out five over 5.1 shutout innings. Ronel Blanco pitched the last 1.2 innings and allowed an unearned run on a sac fly, a single, walked one, and struck out three.

Buies Creek and Carolina will wrap up this series at 6:00 Eastern.

Quad Cities 4, Clinton 0

W- Enoli Paredes (1-3)
L- Nick Wells (4-4)
S- Yohan Ramirez (1)

QC home runs: None.

The Banditos locked the LumberKings down in game one of a new series.

Dean Deetz made his season debut, pitching a scoreless 1st. He allowed a double and walked two in the inning, but he picked a man off first base, another man got caught stealing third, and the last out came via strikeout. Enoli Paredes came on for five innings and allowed a hit, walked one, and struck out seven. Yohan Ramirez completed the shutout, allowing two hits, walking one, and striking out six over the last three innings.

Bryan de la Cruz opened the scoring with a two-run single in the 1st. He added another RBI single to his ledger in the 6th and scored the final run of the evening on a single from Adrian Tovalin in the 8th. De La Cruz finished 3-4, while Tovalin and Corey Julks both went 2-4. Jake Meyers went 3-4 with a couple of doubles and scored twice.

Leovanny Rodriguez will start game two of this series. He'll take on Clay Chandler at 6:35.

DSL Astros 2, DSL Red Sox1 1

W- Jose Antonio Hernandez (1-1)
L- Yoelvis Guedez (0-1)
S- Flaer Gonzalez (1)

DSL home runs: None.

The Academy scored in more innings than the Red Sox did, so they won.

Yefri Carrillo tripled to lead off the 5th and scored on a single from Jose Alvarez. Rolando Espinosa walked with two outs in the 7th and scored what turned out to be the winning run on a single from Abraham Castillo. Carrillo and Alvarez both finished with two hits on the day, while Jeury Castillo went 3-3.

Ernesto Jaquez allowed a run on two hits, walked two, and struck out six in 3.2 innings. Jose Antonio Hernandez tagged in for 4.1 scoreless, allowing a hit, walking one, and striking out three. Flaer Gonzalez struck out two in a 1-2-3 9th to earn a save.
