Houston with another Wagner in the system, this time with the Hooks

Will Wagner isn't a pitcher like his father "Billy the Kid," but he's already come up clutch for the Hooks in his first couple of weeks in Double-A.

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Hooks have a familiar name on the roster to seasoned Astros fans: Wagner.

Wil Wagner is the son of former Astros closer "Billy the Kid" Wagner. He was called up to Double-A two weeks ago and hit his first career home run Sunday, a game-winning shot in the ninth inning against the Cardinals.

Wagner's homer helped lead Corpus Christi to a four-game win streak at the time, a streak that was snapped Tuesday against Amarillo with a 10-9 loss to the Sod Poodles.

Just a nice night out on location with the Corpus Christi Hooks.
