Alvarez got the Hooks on the board with a solo HR in the 2nd inning, his 11th HR of the season. Alvarez added an RBI double in the 6th to make it 3-2. The Hooks would take the lead in the 7th scoring 3 runs on a McCormick 2 run single and another run scoring on a wild pitch. Bielak made his AA debut and pitched well tossing 4.2 scoreless innings with 5 strikeouts. Pinales came on to get the last out and pick up the save.
