AZ SnakePit 7, Lady Gaga Regatta 2
'Pit were helped by benching Cahill (10 ER in 2 IP), but it was the sweep of hitting that proved decisive: Peralta had two HR and drove in nine, with McCann and Swisher also having two HR weeks. On the mound, Kershaw had a W and 12 strikeouts for AZ; Street saved two games for Lady.

Alabama Slammers 5, Blonde Streaks 5
Slammers remain undefeated, but were pushed very close by Blonde; just one less HR, and Alabama would have lost, so Lind's two for them were crucial. Jones had three HR for Blonde, who had a 0.93 WHIP, with Pitcher of the Week Bumgarner (two W, 15 K). Billingsley fanned 14 for Alabama.

The Fighting Amish 9, Los Wailoracles 0
The Amish came within one Save of a whitewash, but surged into a playoff spot, piling up 63 K's to go with a 1.86 ERA. Colon had a W and 13 strikeouts. On offense, they got three HR from Uggla, while Los's best performances came from Tulowitzki, who homered twice and drove in seven runs.

Ignatius J. Rallies 6, Phoenix Platypi 4
Rallies batted a collective .307, and that proved important, as Platypi were otherwise better at the plate, behind Gonzalez, who had two HR and six Runs before hitting the DL. Stanton had seven R and two HR for Ignatius, who also took pitching, getting a Win and 17 strikeouts from Jimenez.

Mizzoula Osprey 7, Lil Bitches 2
The Osprey took over at the top, with their ninth win: they've outscored the opposition 60-18 over that time. They got four homers from Braun, who also drove in six, and three more HR by Rollins; Sanchez had three HR for Lil, who got two W from Vogelsong. Capuano fanned 11 for Mizzoula.

Bad Wolf 7, warlords 3
Wolf swept hitting with the week's best ERA, 1.59, despite an economy of effort - two pitchers didn't play - Weaver's scoreless W, with six K, was their ace on the mound. war came back at the plate, with Cruz (nine RBI) and Utley (two HR, eight RBI), but Montero (six R, eight RBI) helped Bad hold them off.

Sofa King Juiced 8, Whooping Zoidbergs 2
Sofa had their best week of the year to date, with Ellsbury (nine R, three HR, seven RBI, .462 BA) taking Hitter of the Week honors. They also got three Saves from Kimbrel, while Garza fanned 14. The Zoidbergs enjoyed Upton's week, as he homered twice, driving in 11, but otherwise came up short.
