Houston Astros Minor League Recap: April 8th

All four teams played and the Astros farm system took home three wins. The RedHawks put up runs early and had the game game in hand from the get go. The Hooks went into extras and were bailed out with a game-winning home run by a former first round pick. Lancaster took home an unusually low-scoring win. The RiverBandits had an early 2-0 lead but allowed a walk-off hit to drop below .500 for the season.
