The offense got 2 runs in the bottom of the first on Madris and Lee RBI singles. Endersby relieved Bielak and went 2 innings allowing 1 run. The Sugar Land offense put two on in the bottom of the 7th but were unable to score as they dropped game 2, 3-2.

AA: Corpus Christi Hooks (0-1)

Game 1 – lost 5-0 (BOX SCORE)

Gordon started game 1 for the Hooks but struggled a bit as he allowed 5 runs over 3.1 innings. While the offense picked up five hits, including doubles from Whitcomb and Stevens, they were unable to scratch across any runs as the Hooks fell 5-0 in Game 1.

Game 2 – lost 9-8 (BOX SCORE)

Kouba got the start in game two and was solid allowing 2 runs, 1 earned, over 3.2 innings with 5 strikeouts. The offense got on the board in the 3rd scoring 5 runs on a Daniels RBI double, run scoring on a wild pitch, a Barber RBI single and a Schreiber 2 run HR. The wheels came off for the pen in the 6th as Brown allowed 7 runs, 4 earned, while retiring just two batters as the Hooks fell behind 9-5. In the bottom of the 7th, Schreiber connected on a 3 run shot to make it 9-8 but that would be it from the offense.
