With all the talent in the Padres' system right now, picking who you're going to watch at any given moment is not easy. From live bullpens featuring six guys with the stuff to be valuable big leaguers, to an ever-growing array of middle infielders, day two at Peoria was a good one.

A combination of poor pitching and poor defense put the Storm in an early hole from which they could never escape as they got pounded 11-1 by the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes.
El Paso wins their fourth straight and San Antonio wins with production at the top of the order and strong pitching. Good pitching eludes Lake Elsinore and Fort Wayne.
Synopsis: On the mound, the Storm should be led by a solid trio of starters, Zech Lemond, Ryan Butler and Justin Livengood. Watch center fielder Auston Bousfield and a strong middle infield tandem of shortstop Jose Rondon and second baseman Fernando Perez.
Both El Paso and San Antonio get wins on the road. Lake Elsinore's offense continues to flat line while Fort Wayne falls just short. Eugene's Walker Weickel continues to struggle and the AZL Padres win.
