AA: Amarillo Sod Poodles 6, Corpus Christi Hooks 5

Jorge Barrosa had 3 hits and 3 stolen bases out of the leadoff spot and Blaze Alexander homered while driving home 2. Deyni Olivero allowed 3 hits and walked no one in 5 scoreless innings. Jamison Hill’s first AA appearance turned into a disaster after 5 runs in 2+ innings.

Chad Patrick allowed 3 runs in 4 2⁄3 innings, allowing 5 hits, 2 walks, and 3 strikeouts. Hillsboro tied the game in the top of the 6th thanks to A.J.
