MIDLAND The visiting Corpus Christi Hooks scored four times in the fifth inning and rode that outburst to an 8-2 victory against the Midland RockHounds in Texas League play Sunday at Security Bank Ballpark.

Jake Meyers, Jake Adams and Colton Shaver all homered for the Hooks (56-62 overall), who pulled within three games of the RockHounds (59-59) for the second playoff spot in the South Division with three weeks remaining in the regular season.

Collin Theroux was 1 for 3 with one RBI for the RockHounds, who scored solo runs in the seventh and eighth innings to avert the shutout.

Midland opens a three-game series at 7:05 p.m. tonight in Amarillo.
