Astros Minor League Recaps

Results for Tuesday, June 13, 2017

The Astros took on the Rays... in the Dominican Republic.

Fresno 10, Albuquerque 9

W- Reymin Guduan (4-3)
L- Carlos Estevez (0-2)
S- Jordan Jankowski (6)

Fresno home runs: Colin Moran (13, 2-run in 1st)

The Grizzlies withstood a 5-run 3rd from the Isotopes and managed to take an 8-6 lead. That lead was unfortunately short-lived, but they scored a pair in the 8th to regain control.

Colin Moran opened the scoring with a 2-run shot in the opening inning. Jon Kemmer ripped an RBI double in the 4th to get a run back following Albuquerque's 3rd-inning outburst. In the 5th, D.J. Fisher ripped an RBI double and Moran brought him in with a single. Tony Kemp added a 2-run single in the 6th. White walked, and they both advanced a base on a balk. Fisher hit a single to bring Kemp home, but White was thrown out at home to end the inning. He got his revenge in the 8th with a 2-run double that turned out to be the game-winning hit.

Kemp (2 RBI, 2 R, SB) and Moran (2-R HR, 3 RBI) both finished with 3 hits on the night. White (2 2B, 2 RBI, R), Fisher (2B, 2 RBI, 2 R, SB), and Teoscar Hernandez (2 R) posted 2-hit games. Fisher now has 13 thefts on the season, while Kemp has 11.

Casey Coleman went 6 innings and allowed 6 runs on 8 hits, walked 3, and struck out 4. Ashur Tolliver was the first man out of Fresno's bullpen, but he failed to record an out in the 7th. He allowed 3 runs (1 inherited runner charged to him) on 2 hits and walked 1. As a result, Reymin Guduan took ownership of the 7th. He was greeted with an RBI single but got himself together to throw 2 innings. Guduan also allowed a single in the 8th. Jordan Jankowski got a strikeout in a 1-2-3 9th inning and got the save.

David Martinez gets the start in game 2 of this series. He'll take on Ryan Carpenter at 7:05 Mountain.

San Antonio 8, Corpus Christi 4

W- Enyel De Los Santos (3-3)
L- Josh James (3-3)

CC home runs: None.

The Hooks were swept out of San Antonio. The Missions blew them away on Tuesday with a 7-run 3rd inning.

Tony Nuñez finished 3-4 and opened the scoring with an RBI single in the 2nd inning. This would be Corpus Christi's only scoring play until the 7th; in the meantime, the Missions went off and took an 8-1 lead. In the 7th, Drew Ferguson hit an RBI single. He and Nuñez (who singled) both scored on an error that also allowed Jamie Ritchie to reach safely.

Josh James pitched 2.1 innings and allowed 6 runs (2 inherited runners charged to him) on 5 hits, walked 2, and struck out 3. Riley Ferrell was the first man out of the Corpus bullpen and threw 2.2 innings, allowing a run of his own on 4 hits and fanning 3. Sean Stutzman allowed an RBI single in the 6th, which was the only hit that he allowed in his 2 innings of work. Stutzman also walked 2 and struck out 3. Andrew Thome worked around a walk to throw a scoreless 8th, striking out 1.

The Hooks are now in Midland, where they'll start a 4-game series tonight at 6:30. Brock Dykxhoorn faces Joel Seddon to start it off.

Buies Creek 5, Potomac 1

W- Yoanys Quiala (5-1)
L- Luis Reyes (5-6)
S- Sebastian Kessay (2)

BC home runs: None.

The Carolina Stros got a career night from their starting pitcher to get on the board in this series.

Yoanys Quiala turned in the best start of his career on Tuesday as he allowed just 4 hits while striking out 6 over 8 shutout innings. Andrew Walter got 1 out in the 9th via strikeout and had an inherited runner (unearned) charged to him when Sebastian Kessay issued a bases-loaded walk that spoiled the shutout. Kessay got the last two outs of the game without further incident, striking out Edwin Lora to finish it.

Rodrigo Ayarza put Buies Creek on the board first with an RBI double in the 1st. He'd come around to score on a Randy César single. César hit another RBI single in the 5th. Spencer Johnson doubled to lead off the 8th and scored on a Pat Porter RBI infield single. Myles Straw walked to start the 9th and came home on Ayarza's second RBI double of the evening.

Straw (2B, 2 R), Ayarza (2 2B, 2 RBI, R), Johnson (2B, R), and César (2 RBI) all had 2 hits on the evening; for Straw, it's the 6th consecutive game in which he had 2 hits.

Buies Creek and Potomac will wrap up their series at 7:05 Eastern as Jorge Alcala faces Grant Borne.

Cedar Rapids 10, Quad Cities 5

W- Sean Poppen (5-1)
L- Carson LaRue (7-2)
S- Hector Lujan (5)

QC home runs: Yordan Alvarez (6, 2-run in 3rd)

Both teams put up crooked numbers in all of the innings in which they scored. The problem here is that the Kernels posted more crooked numbered innings.

Carson LaRue pitched 3.2 innings and allowed 6 runs (4 earned) on 6 hits, walked 2, and struck out 4. Dustin Hunt was the first man out of the Quad Cities bullpen and allowed 2 runs on 2 hits, walked 3, and struck out 1 in 4.1 innings. Cedar Rapids' 2 runs in the 9th came on a homer from Jermaine Palacios off of Lucas Williams, who allowed a triple, a single, and walked 2.

Daz Cameron doubled to lead off the 3rd, stole 3rd (14) and scored on the ensuing error. Two batters later, Yordan Alvarez launched a 2-run homer. In the 8th, Jonathan Arauz hit an RBI infield single and Daz added a sac fly. Chuckie Robinson went 2-5 with a double and scored a run.

Cionel Perez starts game 2 of this series. He'll take on Domenick Carlini at 6:35.

DSL Rays1 7, DSL Astros Blue 0

W- Wilson Garcia (2-0)
L- Freylin Garcia (0-1)

Blue home runs: None.

The Blue team did not put up any resistance against the Rays 1.

Angel Tejeda and Freddy Chirino both singled. That was all she wrote on offense.

Freylin Garcia allowed a run on 2 hits, walked 3, and struck out 4 in 4 innings. Fabricio Reina got the first out of the 5th with a strikeout. That, unfortunately, was as good as it got for him as he allowed 4 runs (1 inherited runner charged to him) on 3 hits and walked 2. Christopher Javier walked 1 and struck out 2 in 2.2 innings. Gustavo Almonte got 2 outs in the 8th and allowed 2 runs on 2 hits, walked 1, and struck out 1. Bryan Solano was the last man out of the Blue team bullpen, and in 1.1 innings, he allowed a hit and fanned 2.

These two teams play again at 10:30 AM Eastern.

DSL Rays2 9, DSL Astros Orange 8

W- Rodolfo Sanchez (1-0)
L- Miguel Matos (0-1)
S- Jose Roca (1)

Orange home runs: Ramiro Rodriguez (1, solo in 3rd)

The Rays 2 went on a 9-0 run after the Orange team stormed out to a 6-0 lead. Team Orange cut the deficit to one run, but that was as close as they could get.

An error in the 1st inning allowed Hector Martinez and Deury Carrasco to score the first two runs of the day. Samir Caraballo scored another run in the opening frame when Jose Carrillo beat a double play bid. In the 3rd, Ramiro Rodriguez smacked solo homer, Leonardo Gonzalez hit an RBI single, and Luis Barajas scored on an error. Gonzalez hit another RBI single in the 8th and scored on Martinez's groundout. Carrasco went 3-5 with a triple.

Cristofer Melendez went 3.2 innings and allowed 5 runs (2 earned) on 5 hits, walked 2, and struck out 2. Fredy Medina struck out 2 in 1.1 perfect innings, and Miguel Matos allowed 4 runs on 3 hits, walked 4, and struck out 3 in 3 innings.

These two teams play again at 10:30 AM Eastern.
