Houston Astros Minor League Recap: May 24th

All four teams in the Astros system were in action with the Grizzlies, Hooks, and Jethawks winning. See how the prospects performed last night.

Houston Astros 2017 AL Champs

AAA: Fresno Grizzlies (19-25) won 14-3 (BOX SCORE)

Nice win for Fresno as they inch back to .500. They got off to a good start in the bottom of the 1st when Matt Duffy hit a 3 run HR. In the bottom of the third Duffy homered again, this time a 2 run shot. Stassi added an RBI single to extend the lead to 6-0. In the bottom of the 5th they put up four runs with an RBI double from Kemmer, sac fly from Fontana, and a 2 run double from Singleton. Fresno wasn’t done there either as they would score two in the 6th and then Singleton capped off the scoring with a solo HR, his 13th of the season and 3rd in last two games. Valdez got the start and gave up 1 run over 5 innings of work. Fields and Guduan both allowed one run but the offense had more than enough runs to win it.

AA: Corpus Christi Hooks (27-17) won 7-4 (BOX SCORE)

Corpus flexed their muscles early in this one. In the bottom of the first Alex Bregman hit a solo HR to left (12). Fisher would single bringing up JD Davis who knocked a 2 run HR to left center, his 8th HR. Cy Sneed got the start and was great through the first 5 innings he allowed just one hit, a solo HR. He ran into a bit of trouble in the 6th but ended up allowing just 2 ER in 5.2 innings. Corpus added three more runs in the 5th with a 2 run single from Fisher and Bregman scoring on a fielder’s choice. Gonzalez added an RBI triple to cap the scoring. Peterson and McCurry both allowed one run in their outings but Corpus offense gave them plenty of wiggle room.

A+: Lancaster Jethawks (20-23) won 11-9 (BOX SCORE)

Lancaster breaks out the bats with 11 runs on 11 hits. They got out to a quick start with 6 runs on just 4 hits in the first inning. They got RBIs from Laureano, Muniz, Ritchie, Sewald, and Trompiz. They would continue to play add on with a run in the 2nd inning (Ritchie sac fly), 3rd inning (Martin HR #4), and 4th inning (Nunez scoring on wild pitch). Dykxhoorn got the start and allowed 4 runs, just 1 earned, over 5 innings with 6 strikeouts. They would add another run in the 6th and one more in the 7th on a Martin RBI double. Dorris was dominant closing the game out with 5 K in just 2.1 scoreless innings.

A: Quad Cities River Bandits (18-26) lost 2-1 (BOX SCORE)

Quad Cities offense falls short in tough loss. Perez got the start and pitched really well allowing just 1 run over 4 innings. Keep in mind he is only 18 years old playing in a league where the aveage age is nearly 22 years old. Whitt added a scoreless inning. McCanna pitched the last three innings allowing just 1 run. QC’s offense was able to scratch across 1 run in the 9th with Wernes scoring on a wild pitch, but that is all they would get.

Today’s starters according to MiLB.com:

FRE: Joe Musgrove (2.45 ERA)

CC: Keegan Yuhl (3.26 ERA)

LAN: Elieser Hernandez (7.18 ERA)

QC: Makay Nelson (3.86 ERA)
