CC home runs: A.J. Reed (11, 34 season; solo in 7th)

The Hooks buried the Roughriders early and cruised to the win.

George Springer doubled and scored a run in 4 at-bats as his rehab continues. Here's hoping that he's good to go by the weekend.

Colin Moran kicked things off with an RBI single in the 1st, and then Corpus opened the floodgates in the 2nd inning.

Moran added another RBI single to his ledger, and an error on the play resulted in Danry Vásquez scoring another run. Moran, who went to 3rd on the error, scored on a wild pitch. A.J. Reed, who was at the plate at the time, drew a walk and came all the way around to score on a triple from Jon Kemmer. Jack Mayfield brought him home with a double, and Conrad Gregor finished the scoring in the inning with an RBI single. In the 6th, Alfredo Gonzalez hit an RBI single, and Chan-Jong Moon ripped an RBI double. Reed capped off the scoring with his Minor League-leading 34th home run, a solo shot in the 7th. Moon finished 3-5, while Moran, Kemmer, Gregor, and Gonzalez all had 2-hit nights.

Kyle Westwood allowed 5 hits, walked 1, and struck out 5 over 7 shutout innings. In his AA debut, Albert Minnis allowed a 2-run homer to J.T. Wise in the 8th, which were the only 2 runs he surrendered in his 2 innings. Minnis allowed 2 other hits and walked 1.
