There’s no stopping this train. The Astros ‘Corpus Christi Hooks have won 17 of their last 20 games.
If there were any doubts as to which team was in control in the Texas League the Corpus Christi Hooks put them to bed this week, winning four games out of five from the Frisco Roughriders and seven of their eight contests this week. A month ago it was the Roughriders who held a commanding leading in the South Division as the Hooks scuffled out of the gate. With the offense clicking and the pitching staff coming into form, the Houston Astros’s AA affiliate has seized control of their own destiny 69 games into the season. The Hooks have locked up first place in the South Division at the midway point.
Danry Vasquez, Mott Hyde, and Gonzalo Sanudo were activated from the disabled list this week – all seeing action against the Frisco. Pitchers Evan Grills and Edison Frias were placed on the temporary inactive list while lefty Brian Holmes was placed on the disabled list.
