8-7 in 14 innings; losing the Texas League championship 3 games to 1. The Wranglers were so good the 2nd half of the season, but ran into a Corpus Christi Hooks squad that played like they really, really wanted the championship. Who would have guessed that out of what looked to be a stellar playoff rotation - Greinke, Buckner, Hochevar, and Lumsden - that 3 of them would get lit up in the first few innings? Only Buckner pitched well this series, and that's why they lost.
Congrats to Hunter Pence and the Hooks, I guess.
