Default Pituitary stalk transsection question

All hormones decrease except Prolactin.

Somatostatin inhibits GH and TSH release (FA13 P.289)
so why isn't there also an increase in GH and TSH with pituitary stalk transection?
Is this due to the effect that GHRH and Somatostatin equal out on the effect on GH? Thanks
