There are three primary stories from last night's action.  Anderson Hernandez is the first story as he extended his hit streak to 27 games, and is making a solid case for a September call-up.  It's a really impressive streak. I'm not a Anderson Hernandez fan, but you have to give him credit for this streak, and could be an upgrade over, dare I say it, Angel Sanchez.

The second story is ObieHockey pitching a very good game.  He struggled out of the gate for Corpus but has since turned a few good starts.  I'm not ready to annoint him a top 10 prospect or even a better prospect than Paul Clemens, but he's making a case.  I will at least say he has a better floor than Clemens.

The third, and perhaps the best, is George Springer leading off a double header with a solo shot!  Not only did he hit a bomb in that game, he also hit a double to show off his power.  He then changed gears in the second game to swipe three bags!  I just wish we could have had him in the system a little longer this year to show him off to the rest of the baseball world!
