Hooks Snap Skid, Hammer Cards

Posted: Updated:

CORPUS CHRISTI (CC Hooks) - The Hooks got a three-run home run from Bobby Borchering and six and two-thirds innings on the mound from starting pitcher Rob Rasmussen to beat the Springfield Cardinals 9-3 and snap a four game losing streak in front of 6,133 fans at Whataburger Field Saturday night.

Each team scored once in the first inning with a little bit of small ball. Kolten Wong singled to start the game for the Cardinals (31-16, 66-51) and moved around the bases on a groundout and an infield single before Jamie Romak drove him in with a sacrifice fly.

In the bottom of the inning Robbie Grossman singled, stole second and moved to third on a grounder to short. Jon Singleton drove him in to tie the score at one.

Corpus Christi (30-18, 67-51) took its first lead of the entire homestand with a run in the second. Jacob Goebbert led off the inning with a hustling double and went to third on an error before he scored on a Borchering sacrifice fly.

Borchering extended the lead in the fourth. After Drew Locke and Goebbert started the inning with consecutive singles through the infield, Borchering hit his fourth home run of the season to put the Hooks in front 5-1.

Springfield added a run in the top of the seventh when pinch-hitter Alan Ahmady doubled with two outs and scored on a Kolten Wong single. The Wong base hit spelled the end of the night for Rasmussen (4-2), who allowed two earned runs on nine hits.

Iden Nazario came in to pitch for the Cardinals to start the bottom of the seventh after starter Seth Maness (9-3) allowed five runs in six innings. After Nazario struck out the first hitter he faced, Grossman singled and Andy Simunic walked. Singleton followed with a two-run double and Goebbert hit a sacrifice fly to make it 8-2 Hooks.

Each team scored a single run in the eighth to establish the final margin.

The Hooks and Cardinals will square off again Sunday night at 6:05 when Springfield sends Scott McGregor (5-1) to the mound against Corpus Christi's Matt Heidenreich (1-1).
