Houston Astros Minor League Recap: April 26th

Houston Astros Minor League Recap: April 26th

Tough day for the Astros system without three out of four walking away with a loss. Still some great performances though. See how the prospects performed last night.

AAA: Fresno Grizzlies (8-10) lost 7-3 (BOX SCORE)

Fresno has yet to get rolling. Two big innings with three runs in the 3rd and four runs in the 8th were enough to down the Grizzlies. Starter Brad Peacock overall had a decent start striking out 9 over 5.2 IP while giving up three runs. Fresno made a comeback in the top of the 8th when Colin Moran hit a 2 out, 3-run double to tie the game. The lead didn’t last long as Chapman came in and gave up four runs.

AA: Corpus Christi Hooks (9-8) won 2-0 (BOX SCORE)

The Hooks lose a tough one 2-0 and now have gone scoreless for 21 straight innings, but there was a silver lining. Starter Joe Musgrove went 5 IP, 0 ER, 0 BB, 7 K for the Hooks. He now has 2 BB/21 K in 17.1 IP and a 0.52 ERA. The Hooks managed seven hits, but couldn’t get the big one. Derek Fisher was on base three times with a triple and two walks. The second half of the tandem, Yuhl, pitched well giving up 1 ER over 4 innings.

Lancaster with the sole win in the Astros system last night. Starter Evan Grills threw five hitless innings walking one and striking out four. Lancaster got six hits from five different players. Alejandro Garcia had two hits and two RBI. He is starting to come around with six hits in his last four games. Martin and Ritchie both added an RBI each.
