Prospect Watch: If Tommy Layne is going to have a shot at returning to the big leagues, he is going to have to pitch with more consistency. Layne through 1.2 scoreless innings lowered his ERA to 4.37, but has not thrown back-to-back scoreless outings since August 10th. The only hope for Layne might be Hynes extreme inability to throw a strike in the big leagues.

Prospect Watch: Over his last 17.2 innings (three starts), Oramas has allowed 12 hits, zero earned runs, two walks and 15 strikeouts. In fact, Oramas has not allowed more than one earned run in a start since July 29th. While his 2.84 ERA is already outstanding, take away his one bad start (July 6, 2 IP 8 ER) and he would have the best ERA in the Texas League.
Lake Elsinore 2 - Modesto Nuts 7
Prospect Watch: What happened to Justin Hancock? After going 5-1, 1.73 ERA in 12 starts in Fort Wayne, Hancock has gone 2-7, 5.53 ERA, in 13 starts for the Storm. This was his shortest career start lasting less than one inning.

Ems thankfully have a day off.
AZL Padres 1 – AZL Royals 10
Prospect Watch: Jose Urena threw out a runner at the plate. The AZL home run leader now has not hit one in a week and had his first multi-hit game in nine days. With the Padres getting blown out this might be the only highlight.
