Let's discuss the young 'uns as they play their baseball games.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Corpus Christi Hooks (12-6) is at the Midland RockHounds (10-8, OAK), 6:30 CST

Mark Appel vs Jake Sanchez

Lots of awesome prospect things going on in this affair. Can Mark Appel come out and be dominant? It's 75 degrees and the wind is blowing out to right at 7 mph. Can Carlos Correa continue to bat .400? Will Teoscar Hernandez begin to figure things out? Is Tyler Heineman for real?

This Hooks team is awesome. Their record is 12-6, but their pythagorean record is 14-4 (114 runs scored vs 54 runs allowed). They have a team OPS of .806. That's right, the team is slashing .284/.374/.432.

Rancho Cucamonga Quakes (11-8, LAD) at the Lancaster JetHawks (10-9)

Jeff Brigham vs Blaine Sims

Let's see if Sims can find a way to lower that 14.29 ERA.

Cedar Rapids Kernels (12-7, MIN) at the Quad Cities RiverBandits (13-6)

Mat Batts vs Daniel Mengden

Mengden is a fellow Aggie and my facial hair spirit animal. He's also struck out 19 in 12.2 IP and not walked anyone.
