The Fighting Amish 5, MyWieterGetzLongoria 5

The Amish took most pitching points, with a 2.34 ERA. Wainwright led their hurlers, with a W, seven K's and a 1.00 ERA.

Los Wailoracles 2, Waffles 7
Waffles pounded cellar-dwellers Los, Lee's Win and dozen strikeouts being a cornerstone. They also got two HR and eight RBI from Walker, with Rios adding two HR and seven Runs, as the offense batted a collective .339. Castro gave the Wailoracles two home-runs in a losing cause, their 12th in 13 rounds.

soco knows 5, Ignatius J. Rallies 4
The knows continued to fight their way up, beating the Rallies in a surprise, with Strikeouts level at 43. Their May pick-up of Johnson came good, as he had three HR and 10 RBI, and they took the former by one. Rollins had three HR for the Rallies. Cahill (soco) led all pitchers here with ten strikeouts.

Phoenix Platypi 7, Lil Bitches 3
Lil got three HR apiece from Cruz and Holliday and took that category, but Phoenix fought back with three HR by Posey, and Stubbs scored ten runs while stealing three bases. Pitching was more evenly matched, but the Platypi had Pitcher of the Week Burnett (two W, 15 K, 1.02 ERA) and got the victory.

Week 18 Games

AZ SnakePit vs. The Fighting Amish
Mizzoula Osprey vs. Sofa King Juiced
Alabama Slammers vs. Blonde Streaks
Los Wailoracles vs. MyWieterGetzLongoria
soco knows vs. Waffles
Phoenix Platypi vs. Ignatius J. Rallies
Lil Bitches vs. CompleteGameShutout

Mizzoula vs. Sofa is the game of the week. Sofa were clobbered last week, and a similar result might see them slip down towards the pack clustered below, with only 3.5 points separating 6th and 9th. They're an impressive 14-2-1 in Wins, but Mizzoula are 15-1-1 in Saves, and it should be an interesting match-up, particularly on the mound.
