Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Saturday, June 2, 2018

Happy Dominican Summer League Opening Day!

Fresno 5, Albuquerque 2

W- Trent Thornton (4-3)
L- Sam Howard (3-4)
S- James Hoyt (4)

Fresno home runs: Tyler White 2 (10; solo in 1st, solo in 8th), Kyle Tucker (8, 2-run in 1st)

The Grizzlies got off to a quick start as they launched two homers in the opening frame.

Kyle Tucker opened things up with a two-run blast and Tyler White made it back-to-back with his first solo shot of the evening. Eduardo de Oleo led off the 7th with a double and scored on an Alejandro Garcia triple. White drove himself in with his second solo homer in the 8th inning. He and Jack Mayfield both finished 2-4.

Trent Thornton went six innings and allowed a run on four hits and struck out six. Reymin Guduan, Brendan McCurry, and James Hoyt all pitched an inning. Guduan recorded a strikeout in a 1-2-3 7th. McCurry allowed an unearned run on two hits and struck out one in the 8th and Hoyt struck out one in a 1-2-3 9th to get the save.

Rogelio Armenteros will start the series finale. He'll face Yency Almonte at 1:35 Mountain.

Corpus Christi 3, Tulsa 2

W- Kit Scheetz (1-0)
L- Dylan Baker (3-3)
S- Riley Ferrell (4)

CC home runs: Alex De Goti (3, 2-run in 9th)

The Hooks stole the win by stunning the Drillers with three runs in the top of the 9th.

Randy César extended his hitting streak to 25 games by leading off the 9th with a single. Ryne Birk followed with a single and Stephen Wrenn moved them both over with a sacrifice bunt. César scored Corpus Christi's first run of the night on a Jamie Ritchie groundout that put them down to their final out. Alex De Goti didn't care though because he whacked a home run that put the Hooks in front and it turned out to be the difference. De Goti's homer was the Hooks' lone extra-base hit on the night.

Alex Winkelman allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits, walked two, and struck out four. Kit Scheetz came on for his Texas League debut and his first task was to get Winkleman out of a bases-loaded, one out jam, which he successfully did without incurring any further damage. Scheetz wound up striking out two over 3.2 perfect innings. Riley Ferrell struck out one in a 1-2-3 9th to get the save.

Corpus and Tulsa will wrap up this series at 1:05. Ryan Hartman will take on Justin DeFratus.

Potomac 8, Buies Creek 2

W- Wil Crowe (7-0)
L- Hector Perez (1-2)

BC home runs: None.

Walks kill.

Luis Payano's two-run double in the 4th was Buies Creek's only scoring play.

Four Buies Creek pitchers issued 15 walks in nine innings. That might have had something to do with how this game shaped out. I will decline to elaborate further. Jesús Balaguer was the only pitcher who did not allow a run; he walked one and struck out two in the 9th.

Gabriel Valdez will take on Joan Baez (not the singer) in the series finale. First pitch is at 2:00 Eastern.

Quad Cities 10, Beloit 9 in 10 innings

W- Humberto Castellanos (1-0)
L- Josh Reagan (0-3)

QC home runs: Jake Adams (8, 2-run in 7th)

The Snappers tied the game in the 9th and took the lead in the 10th.... only to watch the Banditos walk off with the victory.

Leovanny Rodriguez has been excellent since he joined the Quad Cities roster, but he got roughed up for the first time this season as he allowed seven runs on ten hits (solo and three-run homers), walked three, and struck out two. Willy Collado restored order in his season debut as he allowed a run on three hits, walked one, and struck out two in four innings. Humberto Castellanos allowed the leadoff runner to score on a single and struck out one in the 10th.

Jake Meyers doubled to lead off the bottom of the 1st. He proceeded to steal third and scored the Banditos' first run on the errant throw down. Miguelangel Sierra and Mike Papierski hit RBI singles in the 3rd and the 4th, respectively. Meyers led off the 7th with a single. He then stole second and scored on a Jonathan Arauz single. Bryan de la Cruz and Sierra went down to put the rally in jeopardy, but Jake Adams delivered another blow with a two-run home run. De La Cruz put Quad Cities in front with a two-run single in the 8th.

Roman Garcia led off the 10th in scoring position. Papierski grounded out, but Adrian Tovalin drew a walk. Corey Julks was summoned to pinch-hit and he sent everyone home happy by ripping a two-run double to win it for Quad Cities. Meyers and Arauz both finished with three hits on the evening and Papierski went 2-4.

César Rosado will start the series finale. He'll face Xavier Altamirano at 1:15.

DSL Royals1 3, DSL Astros 1

W- Daury Cabrera (1-0)
L- Wender Oberto (0-1)
S- Cruz Noriega (1)

DSL home runs: None.

The Academy could only rue their missed opportunities as they went 0-9 with runners in scoring position and left eight men on base.

Heitor Tokar had an impressive pro debut as he allowed just one man to reach via a walk and struck out one in his four innings of work. The Royals got to Wender Oberto, though. Oberto allowed three runs on five hits, walked four, and struck out one in two innings. Ronny Garcia struck out one in a 1-2-3 7th, and Flaer Gonzalez allowed a hit and struck out three over two scoreless innings.

Enmanuel Morillo led off the 5th with a single. He then advanced to second on a balk, to third on an errant pickoff throw, and then scored the DSL team's first run of the season on a wild pitch. Carlos Hurtado's double in the 8th was their only extra-base hit of the day.

Sunday is a league-wide off day in the Dominican. The Academy will travel to the Royals complex to play them again on Monday.
