Mark Appel (1-2, 3.15 ERA in six games with Corpus) is coming off the best start of his professional career and will look to shut down the Padres' AA affiliate (and his critics) and end what has been a tumultuous first full season on a high note.

Hooks Lineup:

A+ Lancaster: Kent Emanuel vs. Trevor Foss and the Inland Empire 66ers

Start Time: 7:05 CT

Kent Emanuel (9-4, 4.24 ERA in 20 games with Lancaster) is also coming off a strong start; he threw seven shutout frames against these same Inland Empire 66ers (the Angels' A+ affiliate) one week ago today. He'll look to finish a solid first season with another good game against one of the California League's weaker offensive units.
