AZ SnakePit Fantasy Baseball: Week 5

Bob Levey

A good week for pitching, especially if you had Yu Darvish or Justin Verlander. But there were some good hitting performances too, led by Trumbo.

Week 5 Results

AZ SnakePit 3, Sofa King Juiced 6
Sofa's offense exploted, led by Fielder (three HR, 10 RBI) and Holliday (eight R, three HR), as they took all five hitting points. Snake fought back on the mound, behind Strasburg's 16 strikeouts: Reed saved two for them, as Balfour did for Juiced: wins ended tied at three apiece.

MyWieterGetzLongoria 4, Waffles 6
Waffled edged Wieter, but it could have gone either way: Waffles took BA by just .001. Rizzo's two SB and .357 for the winners likely proved key, though Segura also had three HR. Fernandez got a W + 13 K's for Wieter, Samardzija adding 13 K's. Gonzalez got a W + 14 K for Waffles.

Phoenix Platypi 1, Alabama Slammers 8
The week's biggest blowout saw Platypi implode almost completely, K's being their only win behind Darvish's W + 23 K. Otherwise, it was all Alabama: Gonzalez had two HR and six Runs, Romo picked up a Win and four Saves, and Slowey notched a W plus 15 strikeouts.

The Osprey had a good week from Cabrera, who had three HR, eight Runs and 10 RBI; Machado also had three HR for Grittiness, as both teams batted over .300 for the week. Garza had two Wins and six K's for Mizzoula, but Got had Pitcher of the Week Verlander (two W, 17 K).

Dirt McGrit 5, Blonde Streaks 4
The week's closest game saw Dirt edge Blonde, SB ending tied. McGrit were ahead on offense behind Reynolds (five R, five RBI), despite the Streaks' Sandoval, who had six R and drove in five. Hammel's two W and 10 K's led Blonde's pitching, but Lester fanned 12 as Dirt held on.

CompleteGameShutout 7, The Fighting Amish 2
