San Antonio Missions 2 – Corpus Christi Hooks 0
Key Statistics RHP Eddie Bonine 7 IP, 5 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 2 Ks; CF Rico Noel 3-5 OA; RF Yeison Asencio 3-4, 2 2B, RBI.
Prospect Watch: The Texas League semi-final match is all tied after the Missions' victory tonight. Knuckelballer Eddie Bonine had the Hooks baffled over seven innings. He got 11 groundouts throughout the game most of which were weakly hit as the Hooks' batters were continually swinging over the top of the knuckler…CF Rico Noel is picking a great time to show his “A Game.” After being the lone offensive highlight yesterday, Noel continued the onslaught with three more hits today. Even more important was his throw that nailed a runner at the plate to end the seventh inning in a tight contest.
