Another day of minor league action in the books. See the results below.

AAA: Round Rock Express (5-3) won 8-6 (BOX SCORE)

Another comeback win for the Express. Hartman started and was roughed up a bit allowing 6 runs in 3 innings. Fisher got the scoring started for the Express with an RBI single in the first. In the 3rd inning, they put up 3 runs on a Straw RBI double, Fisher RBI groundout, and Mayfield RBI double. They entered the 8th inning down 6-4 but rallied for four runs on a Mayfield RBI single, Tucker RBI double, and Jones 2 run single. Bostick pitched the final 4 innings without allowing a run while picking up the win.

AA: Corpus Christi Hooks (3-5) lost 10-8 (BOX SCORE)

Another night, another 10+ runs allowed for the staff. Adcock allowed 6 of those runs in 2.2 innings. He was relieved by Bravo who allowed 2 runs of his own. The Hooks finally got on the board in the 5th when a run scored on an error and another scored on a McCormick RBI single. In the 6th, Robinson connected on a solo HR, his 2nd of the season. The Hooks would try to battle back getting 2 in the 8th on a Quintana 2 run single and 3 in the 9th on a Wrenn 2 run triple and Rojas RBI single. Unfortunately the comeback fell short as they lost this one 10-8.
