It will take a string of road victories and some assistance from the Midland Rock Hounds, but thanks to their current five-game winning streak, there is still an outside chance that Corpus Christi could win the 1st Half title in the Texas League's South Division. If the Hooks win the title, it would clinch the franchise's first trip to the play-offs since the 2006 squad won the Texas League championship.
Entering play tonight, the Hooks and Midland are both five games behind Frisco with eight games left in the first half of the season. Corpus plays two more home games against San Antonio before wrapping up the half with four games at Frisco and two games at San Antonio. Frisco has four games remaining against Midland(two in Frisco and two in Midland) in addition to their series against the Hooks. The first half of the 2012 slate concludes Tuesday, June 19.
