Hooks Hold Off Hounds As Buchanan Wins 7th

Posted: Updated:

Corpus Christi (kiii sports) - The Corpus Christi Hooks took advantage of two early errors by Midland second baseman Darwin Perez to hand the RockHounds a 9-5 loss at Whataburger Field.

Jose Martinez picked up 3 hits and knocked in 3 runs in his third game back with the Hooks after moving down from Oklahoma City.

Houston Astros outfielder Justin Maxwell went 0-3 in his first game since breaking his left hand in the Major Leagues in late April. Maxwell did flash his great speed as he easily scored from first base on a double to give the Hooks a 5-0 lead in the third inning.

Jake Buchanan ran his record to 7-0, but saw his minor league-best ERA jump from 0.77 to 0.85 as he gave up an earned run for the first time in nearly a month.
