Astros Minor League Recap: May 2nd, 2019

Another day of minor league action in the books. See the results below.

AAA: Round Rock Express (16-10) won 10-4 (BOX SCORE)

Perez started for the Express but struggled allowing 6 hits and 3 runs in 2.1 innings. Round Rock got on the board in the 4th scoring 2 runs on an Alvarez RBI double and Tucker RBI single. In the 7th, Tucker connected on a 2 run HR, his 6th of the season, to tie the game at 4. Martin pitched in relief and did really well tossing 4.1 scoreless innings with 6 strikeouts. The game went to extra innings but the Express made quick work and scored 6 runs on a Straw RBI single, Mayfield RBI double, Tucker 3 run double, and Tanielu RBI single. Garza closed it out with 1.2 scoreless innings.

Note: Alvarez is hitting .500 with 4 HR, 15 RBI over his last 10 games.

AA: Corpus Christi Hooks (13-14) lost 2-1 (BOX SCORE)

Hernandez turned in another solid start allowing 2 runs over 5 innings while striking out 8. Unfortunately, the Hooks offense struggled most of the night. They did score a run in the 7th on a Rojas RBI single but that is all they would get. Ferrell and Valdez had scoreless outings in relief but the offense was unable to get anything else going.

Note: Hernandez has 5 BB/34 K in 28 innings this season.

A+: Fayetteville Woodpeckers (15-13) won 4-2 (BOX SCORE)

Javier got the start and allowed 1 unearned run over 4.2 innings. He walked 4 but struck out 6. It wasn’t his best outing but it still helped lower his season ERA to 0.73. The Woodpeckers scored 3 runs in the first inning on a Beer RBI single and Shaver 2 run single. In the 3rd inning, Beer connected on a solo HR, his 5th of the season. Rodriguez relieved Javier and allowed 1 run in 2.1 innings. Bravo closed it out tossing 2 scoreless innings while picking up the save.

Note: Javier has a 0.73 ERA with 32 K in 24.2 innings this season.

A: Quad Cities River Bandits (15-10)

Game 1 – won 7-2 (BOX SCORE)

Quad Cities jumped out to an early lead scoring 4 runs in the first inning. One run came on a balk while the others came on RBI singles from Lacroix, Salazar and Dawson. Conine started and was fantastic allowing 1 hit over 7 scoreless innings. McKenna added an RBI single in the 4th for the 5th run. They got some insurance in the 9th on a Valdez RBI double and Pena sac fly. Tejada closed it out allowing 2 runs in 2 innings.

Note: Conine has a 2.25 ERA with 2 BB/34 K in 28 innings this season.

Game 2 – won 1-0 (BOX SCORE)

Dominating performance by Rodriguez who tossed the complete game shoutout (7 innings since double header). He allowed just 2 hits and struck out 9. The River Bandits scored 1 run in the 2nd on a Dawson RBI groundout, but that was all they needed as Rodriguez was great last night.

Note: Rodriguez has a 1.33 ERA with 3 BB/33 K in 27 innings this season.

  • Enmanuel Valdez, 2B: 0-for-1, 2 BB
  • David Hensley, 1B: 2-for-3, R, SB
