Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Friday, June 1, 2018

Fresno 10, Albuquerque 3

W- Mike Hauschild (3-5)
L- Jeff Hoffman (3-4)

Fresno home runs: Jack Mayfield (6, solo in 2nd), D.J. Fisher (1, 3-run in 7th), Jon Kemmer (9, solo in 9th)

Sounds like D.J. Fisher's rehab is going well because he hit for the cycle in this game. He doubled to lead off the game, singled to lead off the 3rd, tripled to start the 5th, and completed the cycle with a three-run home run in the 7th. He added an RBI single in the 8th for good measure. Jack Mayfield went 3-5 with a homer to start the 2nd, and Drew Ferguson went 3-4 with an RBI single in the 4th and scored twice. Kyle Tucker opened the scoring with an RBI single in the 1st and drove in two more runs on a sac fly in the 5th and a groundout in the 8th.

Mike Hauschild went six innings and allowed three runs (one earned) on seven hits and struck out eight. Buddy Boshers allowed a hit and struck out four in two scoreless innings, and Andrew Thome allowed a hit in a scoreless 9th.

Trent Thornton takes on Sam Howard in game three of this series. First pitch is at 6:35 Mountain.

Tulsa 4, Corpus Christi 3

W- Logan Ondrusek (1-0)
L- Framber Valdez (2-2)
S- Ariel Hernandez (3)

CC home runs: None.

The Drillers snatched this one thanks to a three-run 7th inning.

Framber Valdez went 6.1 innings and allowed four runs on nine hits, walked two, and struck out four. Carlos Hiraldo pitched the last 1.2 innings without allowing a hit; he walked on and struck out two.

Taylor Jones opened the scoring with a sac fly in the 3rd. Randy César was next, and he extended his hitting streak to 24 games with a single. Josh Rojas scored on the ensuing error. After Alex De Goti led off the 4th with a double, Rojas brought him in with a sac fly. De Goti and Ryne Birk both finished 2-4 on the evening. Myles Straw went 1-4 with a stolen base, his 33rd of the season.

Alex Winkelman takes on Mitchell White in game two of this series. First pitch is at 7:05.

Buies Creek 6, Potomac 5

W- Ronel Blanco (4-1)
L- Jeremy McKinney (0-2)

BC home runs: Abraham Toro (8, 2-run in 3rd)

The Carolina Stros started their weekend off right with a win.

Chas McCormick drew a one-out walk and scored the first Buies Creek run of the night when he stole home in the 1st inning. He ripped an RBI triple in the 3rd and came home when Abraham Toro launched a home run. Both teams scored a run in the 6th; the Carolina Stros' run came when Ronnie Dawson scored on a wild pitch. The Nats scored twice in the top of the 7th to tie the game, but McCormick put Buies Creek back in front with an RBI single. He and Dawson finished with two hits apiece.

Abdiel Saldaña went 6.1 innings and allowed five runs (two inherited runners charged to him) on five hits, walked two, and struck out seven. Ronel Blanco pitched the last 2.2 innings and allowed two hits, walked one, and struck out one.

Hector Perez will face Wil Crowe in game two of this series. First pitch is at 5:00 Eastern.

Beloit 4, Quad Cities 2

W- Ty Damron (3-2)
L- Enoli Paredes (0-3)
S- Jesus Zambrano (2)

QC home runs: None.

The Snappers scored one to take the lead in the 8th and got some insurance in the 9th. Quad Cities had a chance to tie or more in the bottom of the 9th, but they couldn't capitalize on a bases-loaded situation.

Parker Mushinski went four innings and allowed a run on three hits, walked one, and struck out six. Enoli Paredes tagged in for 3.2 innings and allowed two runs (one earned, one inherited runner charged to him), walked four, and struck out five. Brendan Feldmann allowed an unearned run on two hits and struck out one in 1.1 innings.

Jake Meyers tripled to lead off the bottom of the 1st and scored the first run of the evening on a single from Corey Julks. Jonathan Arauz, who missed an opportunity to bring Meyers in himself when he struck out right after the triple, made up for it with an RBI single in the 2nd. He finished 2-5 on the night.

Leovanny Rodriguez will get the start in game two. He'll face Wyatt Marks at 6:35.
