CORPUS CHRISTI - Julio Robaina and Tyler Guilfoil teamed to throw a three-hitter Sunday afternoon, allowing Kenedy Corona's two-run single in the eighth to be the difference in a 2-1 Hooks victory over San Antonio before a crowd of 3,867 at Whataburger Field.

Guilfoil, making his third appearance of the year, blanked SA in the sixth and seventh before being touched with a sac fly in the eighth.

Trailing 1-0, the Hooks went to work in the home half. Nine-hole hitter Rolando Espinosa ignited the rally with a double down the left-field line. Jeremy Arocho followed by laying down a bunt base hit past the mound on the third-base side. Following an out and a steal of second by Arocho, Corona lined a two-strike pitch into right-center for a 2-1 edge.

Battling back from a pair of walks to start the ninth, Guilfoil recorded three straight outs, breezing two, to pick up his first Double-A win.
