Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Friday, June 22, 2018

Albuquerque 7, Fresno 5

W- Keith Hessler (3-1)
L- Mike Hauschild (5-6)
S- D.J. Johnson (11)

Fresno home runs: Jon Kemmer (10, 3-run in 4th)

The Grizzlies fought back from an early 6-0 hole but couldn't quite complete the comeback.

Jon Kemmer put Fresno on the board and cut the deficit in half by launching a three-run homer in the 4th inning. A.J. Reed and Tony Nuñez hit RBI singles in the 5th and the 8th, respectively. Reed and Kyle Tucker both finished 3-5 on the night. Garrett Stubbs went 2-4 with two runs scored and stole a base (4).

Mike Hauschild... struggled, and I will not elaborate further. Fortunately, the bullpen picked him up by allowing one unearned run over the final seven innings. Ralph Garza Jr. was the first man out of the bullpen and allowed a hit, walked two, and struck out four over 2.2 scoreless innings. Kent Emanuel was next. He allowed the unearned run on two hits and fanned four in 2.1 innings. Andrew Thome and Reymin Guduan both pitched a scoreless inning. Thome allowed a couple of hits in the 8th and Guduan allowed a hit, walked one, and struck out one in the 9th.

This series concludes today with a doubleheader. Game one will start at 5:05 Pacific. Trent Thornton will take on TBA in game one and Rogelio Armenteros goes up against Antonio Senzatela in game two.

Corpus Christi 4, Frisco 0

W- Kevin Hill (2-1)
L- Edgar Arredondo (0-1)

CC home runs: Eduardo de Oleo (1, 2-run in 5th)

The Blue Ghosts only had four hits, but they scored all of the runs in this game. Corpus has recorded three shutouts in their last five games.

Eduardo de Oleo broke up Edgar Arredondo's no-hitter and opened the scoring with a 2-run shot in the 5th inning. Ryne Birk walked to lead off the 7th. He then stole second and scored on a double from Chas McCormick. Randy César capped off the evening with a Little League home run in the 8th; his triple extended the Texas League record hitting streak to 39 games. Yordan Alvarez also had a base hit to extend his streak to 16 games.

Framber Valdez allowed four hits and struck out two over four shutout innings. Kevin Hill, in his first appearance since being activated from the disabled list, allowed a hit in a scoreless 5th. Cionel Perez tagged in for three innings, allowing two hits, walking one, and striking out two. Riley Ferrell completed the shutout by striking out two in a 1-2-3 9th.

Akeem Bostick will take on Jonathan Hernandez in game three of this series. First pitch is at 7:05.

Carolina 7, Buies Creek 2

W- Braden Webb (4-5)
L- Tyler Ivey (0-2, 1-5 season)

BC home runs: J.J. Matijevic (6, 9 season; solo in 1st)

The Carolina Stros scored in the first and the last inning. Unfortunately, the Mudcats scored seven runs in between.

J.J. Matijevic swatted a solo homer in the 1st to open the scoring and Osvaldo Duarte added an RBI single in the 9th.

Tyler Ivey went 4.2 innings and allowed four runs (two earned) on six hits, walked one, and struck out four. Colin McKee allowed a hit and got the final out of the 5th with a strikeout. Carson LaRue tagged in for three innings and allowed three runs on four hits, walked three, and struck out six. Adam Bleday worked around a walk to throw a scoreless 9th, striking out one.

Buies Creek and Carolina will continue their series at 5:00 Eastern.

Beloit 4, Quad Cities 1

W- Nick Highberger (2-3)
L- Yohan Ramirez (5-6)

QC home runs: None.

The Banditos tied the game with a run in the 7th... only to see the Snappers regain control late.

Jairo Solis allowed a run on four hits, walked one, and struck out four over five innings of work. Yohan Ramirez only allowed one hit in his three innings but it was a costly one: Hunter Hargrove got him for a two-run homer that broke the 1-1 tie. Ramirez walked one and struck out three. Dariel Aquino allowed a run on three hits, walked one, and struck out one in the 9th.

Logan Mattix scored the lone Quad Cities run on a wild pitch in the 7th. Alfredo Angarita drew three walks.

TBA will face Mitchell Jordan at 6:35.

Lowell 11, Tri-City 4

W- Rio Gomez (1-0)
L- Juan Robles (0-1)

TC home runs: None.

A 9-0 deficit put the ValleyCats way behind the eight-ball.

All three of Enmanuel Valdez's hits were doubles. Both of Ramiro Rodriguez's hits were doubles. Austin Dennis got his first professional hit and RBI with a single in the 4th and Andy Piñeda followed by drawing a bases-loaded walk. Juan Piñeda ripped an RBI double in the 6th and after he drew a walk in the 8th, Dennis brought him in with a base hit.

Juan Robles and Carlos Hiraldo both threw three innings... and they both had a tough time getting anything going against the Spinners offense. Mark Moclair worked around a hit and a walk to throw a scoreless 7th, striking out one in his pro debut. Luis de Paula allowed a hit, walked one, and struck out two over two scoreless frames.

Bryan Abreu will take on Hunter Hayworth in the series finale. First pitch is at 7:00 Eastern.

GCL Nationals 11, GCL Astros 9

W- Fausto Segura (1-0)
L- Joey Gonzalez (0-1)

GCL home runs: None.

The Palm Beach Stros' comeback attempt against their complex mates fell short.

Nerio Rodriguez and Wilyer Abreu both finished with three hits on the day. Rodriguez ripped a two-run double in the 6th and Abreu smacked an RBI double of his own in the 9th. Abreu also scored three runs. Hector Martinez had a base hit, walked twice, and also scored three times. Nathan Perry and Ronaldo Urdaneta each drove in two.

Edgardo Sandoval allowed a run on two hits in the 1st inning. Jose Bravo allowed a hit and struck out one in the 2nd inning. Joey Gonzalez, the Astros' 28th-round pick from Stetson, was next... and he probably wants a mulligan on his debut. Christian Mejias would probably also like a mulligan on his US debut. Fredis Guerrero allowed a run on three hits in 2.1 innings.

DSL Rays1 13, DSL Astros 3

W- Luis Arias (2-1)
L- Fabricio Reina (1-2)

Tough day for the Academy. Yefri Carrillo and Valente Bellozo were the two bright spots on Friday; Carrillo went 3-4 and smacked a solo homer and Bellozo allowed a hit and struck out one over 3.1 scoreless innings.
