Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Thursday, June 28, 2018

It hasn't been the greatest day for me and I haven't slept well in a long, long, time... so I'll keep it short here.

Fresno 12, El Paso 4

W- Mike Hauschild (6-6)
L- Colin Rea (1-1)

Fresno home runs: Kyle Tucker (13, solo in 1st), Taylor Jones (1, 13 season; 2-run in 1st), D.J. Fisher (4, 2-run in 3rd), Jon Kemmer (11, 3-run in 7th)

The Grizzlies pounded the Chihuahuas to the tune of four home runs to avoid the sweep. Everyone recorded a hit and no one struck out. Seriously.

What a week for Taylor Jones. He earns Texas League All-Star Game MVP honors on Tuesday and then goes 3-5 with a two-run home run in his Triple-A debut on Thursday.



Mike Hauschild allowed two runs on five hits, walked three, and struck out five in 5.1 innings. Reymin Guduan was the first man out of the Fresno bullpen and turned in 1.2 perfect innings, striking out one. Riley Ferrell got the 8th inning for his AAA debut and allowed two runs on two hits, walked one, and struck out one. James Hoyt got three groundouts to retire the side in order in the 9th.

The Grizzlies are in Sacramento this weekend for four. Trent Thornton will start the opener; first pitch is at 7:05 Pacific.

Arkansas 2, Corpus Christi 0

W- Spencer Herrmann (4-4)
L- Jorge Alcala (1-1, 2-5 season)
S- Matt Festa (9)

CC home runs: None.

The Hooks got blanked in the first game of their tour of Arkansas.

On the bright side, Randy César extended his hitting streak to 42 games with a double in the opening inning. He finished 3-4 on the evening.

Jorge Alcala pitched decently but had no choice but to take the loss. He allowed two runs on five hits, walked two, and struck out five in 5.1 innings of work. Justin Ferrell and Erasmo Pinales pitched 1.1 scoreless innings apiece; Ferrell allowed three hits, walked two, and struck out one. Pinales retired all four Travelers he faced, striking out one.

Akeem Bostick will take on Nathan Bannister in game two of this series. First pitch is at 7:10.

Buies Creek 5, Myrtle Beach 0

W- Carson LaRue (4-4)
L- Erick Leal (0-1)

BC home runs: None.

It's been a pretty solid week in South Carolina for Buies Creek.

Carson LaRue, Tyler Ivey, and Ronel Blanco combined to keep the Pelicans off the scoreboard. LaRue allowed four hits, walked one, and struck out three over five innings. Ivey allowed a hit and fanned five in three innings, and Blanco worked around a couple of hits and a walk in the 9th to complete the shutout.

Osvaldo Duarte opened the scoring with an RBI triple in the 1st and scored on Cody Bohanek's single. Carlos Canelón ripped an RBI double in the 6th and scored on a Jake Meyers single. Meyers scored the final run of the night on an error in the 9th. Duarte and Corey Julks both finished with two hits on the night.

Abdiel Saldaña will take the mound as the Carolina Stros look for the sweep. He'll face Cory Abbott at 7:05 Eastern.

Kane County 5, Quad Cities 2

W- Jeff Bain (7-2)
L- Yohan Ramirez (5-7)

QC home runs: None.

The Banditos won 10-6 in the hit column. Unfortunately, this does not determine the winner of a baseball game.

Seth Beer went 2-4 with an RBI single in his Quad Cities debut. Ruben Castro went 2-4 with a couple of doubles; the second one came in the 9th and resulted in a run, but he was thrown out at third to end the game. Miguelangel Sierra went 3-4. Logan Mattix finished 2-3 with a double and scored on Castro's double.

Yohan Ramirez went four innings and allowed three runs on three hits, two of which were solo homers. He also walked three and struck out five. Dariel Aquino pitched the 5th and the two runs he allowed came on a homer hit by Ernie de la Trinidad. Aquino allowed one other hit and struck out the side. Jairo Solís allowed a hit, walked three, and struck out three in three innings.

Enoli Paredes goes up against Jhoan Duran in game two. First pitch is at 6:30.

Hudson Valley 3, Tri-City 1

W- Paul Campbell (2-0)
L- Mark Moclair (0-1)
S- B.J. Myers (1)

TC home runs: None.

The ValleyCats' bats went MIA as the Renegades took the first game of this series.

Austin Dennis singled with one out in the 7th and scored Tri-City's only run on a balk. Jeremy Peña hit a double to lead off the 4th, an inning in which the ValleyCats left the bases loaded.

Tim Hardy went two innings and allowed a hit, walked one, and struck out one. Mark Moclair allowed two runs, a hit, walked two, and struck out one in the 3rd. The one run that Nivaldo Rodriguez allowed in his 3.2 innings came on a homer hit by Chris Betts. Nivaldo allowed two other hits, walked one, and struck out four. Carlos Hiraldo followed with 2.1 scoreless, allowing a hit, walking two, and striking out two.

The ValleyCats and Renegades continue their series at 7:00 Eastern.

W- Oscar Rojas (1-1)
L- Jose Bravo (0-1)
S- Marcos Correa (1)

GCL home runs: None.

Deury Carrasco was one of the few bright spots on what was an otherwise rough afternoon for the Palm Beach Stros as he went 2-4 with an RBI triple in the 9th and stole a couple of bases, his first two of the season.

Jose Bravo and Layne Henderson both labored through two innings. Miguel Figueroa and Bryan Solano fared better during their stints on the mound; Figueroa allowed an unearned run on two hits, walked one, and struck out three in 2.2 innings, and Solano retired all four Mets he faced, striking out three of them.

DSL Red Sox1 11, DSL Astros 4

W- Yoelvis Guedez (1-2)

The Red Sox buried the Astros with an eight-run 6th inning.

Yimmi Cortabarria went 2-4 with an RBI single in the 8th. Valente Bellozo allowed just one hit, walked two, and struck out three over five shutout frames.

I gotta get to work now.
