Another day of minor league baseball is in the books and you can see all the Astros affiliates results below.

AAA: Sugar Land Skeeters (18-10) OFF

AA: Corpus Christi Hooks (14-17) lost 19-4 (BOX SCORE)

Hensley put the Hooks on the board in the 3rd with an RBI single. In the 4th, they got 2 more runs on Costes and Matijevic RBI singles. The pitching really got roughed up. Mushinski allowed 8 runs in 1.1 innings. DeJuneas allowed 5 runs and Henderson allowed 4 in relief. Hernandez came in next and allowed 2 runs before we had a position player pitching, Adams, who actually tossed a scoreless inning. Gonzalez did add a solo HR in the 8th, his 7th of the season.

Note: Leon is hitting .474 with 3 2B, 2 HR, 5 RBI in June.

They got another in the 8th on a Barefoot RBI double. Lopez started the “completion” portion of the game and went 6 innings allowing 3 runs, just 1 earned, but the offense was unable to complete the comeback.

Game 2 - lost 5-3 (BOX SCORE)

The Tourists scored 3 runs in the first inning on a Lee RBI single and a Holderbach 2 run single. Ceballos started and went just 1 inning allowing 2 unearned runs.
