It may have been a beautiful Spring Day in Corpus Christi, but no one could tell from the online feed from tonight's Astros and Hooks game. The centerfield camera looked like it had been whipped down with an oil rage. It may have helped mask the outing from Mike Hauschild who started for the Hooks and gave up five runs through three innings. The Astros and Hooks were still able to showcase their talents:

  • Jose Altuve was 2-for-3 with a double.
  • Luis Valbuena was 2-for-2 with a double and an RBI.
