The Houston Astros Future is Bright With Hook’s Players

" /

The Astros Double-A Corpus Christi Hooks continue to pitch well and swing a big stick, extending their lead in the South Division to four games. The pitching staff was dominant, posting a sparkling 2.22 ERA with 58 strikeouts and 18 walks. The offense bashed 23 extra base hits and saw production from nearly every spot in the order – including a hit from every member of the starting nine in Thursday’s win in Midland.

Kyle Smith was activated from the seven-day disabled list. Trent Woodward was sent down to Lancaster on Friday. To this point, Woodward had been the team’s best offensive option behind the dish, but he has seen his playing time decrease of late to Roberto Pena.
