Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Tuesday, June 5, 2018

Back to work...

Fresno 1, Colorado Springs 0

W- Brendan McCurry (2-2)
L- Jorge Lopez (2-2)

Fresno home runs: None.

There was only one scoring play in this game. It belonged to the Tacos and it allowed them to walk off with a victory.

Josh James absolutely dominated the Sky Sox as he allowed just three hits, walked one, and struck out a career-high 13 over seven shutout innings. Unfortunately, Colorado Springs starter Freddy Peralta matched him virtually every step of the way and held Fresno hitless for 6.1 innings. Brendan McCurry allowed two hits and struck out two over two scoreless innings.

Seventeen zeroes were put up on the scoreboard, but the Tacos finally made the breakthrough in the bottom of the 9th. Tyler White led it off with a double. A.J. Reed got plunked and they both advanced on a Jack Mayfield sac bunt. Garrett Stubbs got a free pass to first to load the bases for Jon Kemmer, who finally opened the scoring with a walk-off RBI infield single that he tapped back to the pitcher. Kemmer finished 2-3 on the evening.

Canadian Baseball Hall of Famer Brock Dykxhoorn will take on Friend of WTHB Adrian Houser in game two of this series. First pitch is at 7:05 Pacific.

Corpus Christi 9, Frisco 2

W- Corbin Martin (2-1, 4-1 season)
L- Pedro Payano (2-5)
S- Jorge Alcala (1, 3 season)

CC home runs: Chas McCormick (1, 3 season; 2-run in 2nd)

Corpus took the first game of a new series by busting out for six runs in the 4th.

Corbin Martin allowed a run on five hits, walked one, and struck out one in five innings of work. Jorge Alcala tagged in for the last four innings, allowing a run on two hits, walking three, and striking out two.

Chas McCormick made a pretty good first impression on his new team as he put Corpus on the board with a two-run homer in his first AA plate appearance. The homer put the Hooks on the board and in front in the 2nd inning. The real fun began in the 4th.

The Hooks scored six runs in the 4th because they loaded the bases to start the inning and took advantage. Randy César and Josh Rojas walked and then Jamie Ritchie singled to load 'em up for McCormick, who... did not expect to drive in a run by getting plunked, but it still counts the same. Alex De Goti followed with a sac fly. Aníbal Sierra kept the line moving with an RBI single; an error allowed McCormick to dash home with another run and also allowed Sierra to advance to third. Myles Straw got an RBI base hit of his own and Josh Reddick ripped an RBI double. Reddick scored the last run of the night in the 7th on an RBI single from Ritchie, who finished 3-4. César singled in the 7th to extend his hitting streak to 27 games, which ties a club record. Reddick also went 3-4 in his second rehab appearance.

Akeem Bostick will take on Brett Martin in the second game of this series. First pitch is at 7:05.

Myrtle Beach 7, Buies Creek 4

W- Bryan Hudson (4-4)
L- Carson LaRue (3-3)

BC home runs: Ronnie Dawson (7, solo in 4th)

Both teams scored one run in four separate innings. However, the Pelicans also had an inning in which they scored three runs.

Carson LaRue went six innings, but he allowed six runs on ten hits and struck out four. Tanner Duncan allowed a run on two hits, walked one, and struck out two in two innings, and Colin McKee worked around a walk to throw a scoreless 9th, striking out one.

Ronnie Dawson led off the 4th with a solo homer to put Buies Creek on the board. Abraham Toro ripped an RBI double in the 5th. Luis Payano hit a sac fly in the 6th, and Osvaldo Duarte scored on an error following a J.J. Matijevic single in the 9th. Matijevic and Toro both finished 2-5.

Brandon Bailey will get the start in game two, and he'll face Alex Lange. First pitch is at 6:00 Eastern.

Wisconsin 3, Quad Cities 1

W- Bowden Francis (2-3)
L- Jairo Solis (0-2)
S- Rodrigo Benoit (6)

QC home runs: None.

The Banditos bats went MIA on Tuesday...

Bryan de la Cruz grounded into a double play and a triple play in this game. He also drove in the only Quad Cities run with a single in the 9th inning. Safe to say that he had an eventful night at the plate.

Jairo Solis had to take another loss, but this time he turned in a decent outing. He allowed two runs (one earned) on five hits and walked three in five innings of work. Peter Solomon pitched the final three innings and allowed a run on four hits, walked two, and struck out four.

After eight relief appearances, Enoli Paredes will make his first start of the season. He'll face Nelson Hernandez at 7:05.

DSL Rays1 8, DSL Astros 2

W- Argenis Liriano (1-0)
L- Valente Bellozo (0-1)

DSL home runs: Victor Mascai (1, 2-run in 1st)

The Academy scored twice in the 1st... and that was as good as it got for them on offense.

Victor Mascai went 3-4 and opened the scoring with a two-run homer. He accounted for virtually all of the Academy's offensive production in this one. Sebastian Grullon had the only other hit.

The pitchers had a bit of a rough morning and I'll just leave it at that.

These two teams will play again at the Astros complex at 10:30 AM Atlantic time.
