Pitching and Defense

Sanudo made his 2016 debut for the Hooks this week, throwing two and two-thirds innings in relief over the course of two games, allowing one run and two hits while striking out two batters. Sanudo had a 0.00 ERA in 6 games with last year with the Hooks. Aaron West earned two more saves this weekend, bringing him to a team-leading 13 saves on the season.

Keegan Yuhl improved to 7-1 following another pair of terrific outings against San Antonio on Monday and Sunday. On Monday, Yuhl threw five scoreless innings, allowing just one hit and striking out five. On Sunday night, he was breezed through seven innings, allowing a pair of unearned runs while striking out three.

Yuhl is one of five Corpus Christi starters with an ERA under 3.00 (his is 2.10), the other four being David Paulino (1.86), Edison Frias (2.74), Kent Emanuel (2.95), and Evan Grills (1.98). Yuhl’s WHIP now sits and 1.02 this season due in part to his masterful command and his ability to limit walks, only surrendering 1.83 free passes per nine innings.
