Houston Astros Minor League Recap: April 30th


Houston Astros MiLB Recap: April 30th

Another night of minor league baseball in the books.  This picture shows Tucker perfectly. According to scouts he doesn’t have a baseball body but man, all he does is hit. He now has 39 HR and 158 RBI in 203 career minor league games.  Oh and Thomas Shirley keeps rolling along. It sure is a good time to be a fan of Astros Minor League baseball.

 

AAA: Oklahoma City Redhawks (15-12) lost 5-2 (BOX SCORE)

Unfortunately the Redhawks weren’t able to get much going with the bats. Domingo Santana is now hitting .292 with 20 RBIs in 27 games. Robbie Grossman is hitting .319 since being sent down to OKC.

 

AA: Corpus Christi Hooks (16-9) lost 5-4 (BOX SCORE)

On back to back days, the Hooks’ bullpen gave up four runs in the late innings, losing both games.  Preston Tucker now has 6 HR and 17 RBI on the season. Thomas Shirley keeps on rolling, 1.27 ERA on the season.

 

A+: Lancaster Jethawks (16-11) won 2-0 (BOX SCORE)

Great pitching from Lancaster with the combined one hitter. Hader only gave up one hit and zero runs but unfortunately walked five. Not much hitting going on but enough to get the win.

 

A: GAME ONE – Quad Cities River Bandits (11-13) lost 6-3 (BOX SCORE)

A:  GAME TWO – Quad Cities River Bandits (11-13) won 9-8 (BOX SCORE)

Quad Cities finally got to play some games after being rained out.  QC split the doubleheader. Very encouraging to see Emanuel pitching well, now has a 2.45 ERA.

 

Today’s Scheduled Starting Pitchers (according to team websites):

OKC – Nick Tropeano (2.74 ERA)

CC – TBD

LC – Mike Hauschild (4.50 ERA)

QC – Game 1 – Andrew Thurman (5.00 ERA), Game 2 – Chris Lee (2.65 ERA)
