Mike Ekstrom, who led the organization in wins last year for Fort Wayne, gave up just one run on 10 hits in 13.1 innings of work last week. The righty walked two and struck out 10. On the year, he now owns the fifth-best ERA in the Cal League at 2.67. He has allowed just two homers in 67.1 innings of work all year, giving up just 17 walks.
