Houston Astros Minor League Recap: August 10th

Another night of Astros minor league play is in the books. See how the prospects performed last night.

Houston Astros 2017 AL Champs

AAA: Fresno Grizzlies (65-53) won 10-8 (BOX SCORE)

Fresno got back on track last night. Rodgers was on the mound last night for Fresno and it didn’t start well as he gave up 3 runs in the 1st inning. He ended up going 6 innings allowing 5 runs, though just 3 were earned. Teoscar got the scoring started with a 2 run double in the 2nd inning. In the 3rd inning they got two runs on an RBI walk to Stassi and a Singleton sac fly. They added another two runs in the 4th with Teoscar singling, scoring on an error and Fisher adding an RBI single to make it a 4-3 game. Fresno entered the 6th inning with a 6-5 lead but added some insurance. They scored 4 times in the 6th on a Fisher RBI single and a 3 run HR from Kemmer, his 13th HR of the season. The bullpen gave up a few runs but was able to hold on 10-8. Kemmer is now hitting .341 with 8 HR, 21 RBI in 27 games since the All-Star break.

AA: Corpus Christi Hooks (69-47) won 5-4 (BOX SCORE)

Corpus got the scoring started in this one with a big 2nd inning. In the 2nd inning they score 4 times on a Ramsay RBI single and a Hyde 3 run double. Emanuel got the start and gave up 4 runs over 5.2 innings. It wasn’t hit sharpest outing but he kept it close. Corpus added another run in the 4th on a bases loaded walk to Stubbs. Comer tossed 2.1 scoreless innings in relief and Thompson picked up his 2nd save with a scoreless 9th inning.

A+: Lancaster Jethawks (64-51) lost 4-2 (BOX SCORE)

Tough night for the offense as they only managed four hits on the night. Armenteros got the start and gave up 4 runs (3 in the 1st inning) over 6.2 innings with 2 BB/7 K. The Jethawks got on the board in the first on a Ferguson RBI single. They would add another run in the 6th on a Ritchie RBI single to make it 4-2. Unfortunately the offense couldn’t get anything else going and they fell 4-2.

    Only certain guys are acknowledged all the time. What about the guys who do their job that make these guys score runs. Guys that SB and SAC and get on base by BB’s that help move their teammates around should be acknowledged too. Ya never know, maybe that’ll build their confidence and you’ll write about them, too

      I try to acknowledge everyone who scores or drives in a run. Sorry if if don’t get to everyone.
