Don't let score fool you, the JetHawks dominated this game and completed their 3 game sweep of the 66'ers.

George Springer (.303), who'll be playing in the California-Carolina League All-Star Game on Tuesday in North Carolina, collected a couple hits, a couple RBI's and stole a base.

GAME OF THE DAY
Corpus Christi 5 Frisco 0
Saturday night in Corpus was the Jose Cisnero show. Cisnero (4-6) went the whole 9 and threw his first career shutout against Frisco, allowing just 2 hits and striking out 6. Cisnero's shutout was the first in the Texas League this year. Kody Hinze hit a 2 run homer in the 4th for his 8th long ball of the season and 27th RBI. Jonathan Villar went 2 for 5 with a double and collected his 29th RBI. Villar also stole his 30th base of the season last night. Every Hook starter had a hit last night. Carlos Lee finished his rehab stint after 7 innings last night going 2 for 4 and batting .500 in 3 games for the Hooks.
What went right: Two words: Jose Cisnero. Cisnero pitched the first complete game for the Hooks this season and made it a shutout.
What went wrong: Not much went wrong for the Hooks last night. Jon Singleton was the only batter not to collect a hit last night, but that was only because he just had one chance at the plate after coming in to replace Lee in the 8th.
