SnakePit Fantasy Baseball: Week 23

This may be the only time a Giants pic ever appears on the front page of the 'Pit, but if Pence's *19* RBI this week don't deserve it... - Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The playoffs are under way, with the quarter-finals taking place this week. How did the eight teams in action fare?

Week 23 Results

Championship bracket
(#4 seed) Alabama Slammers 6, (#5) Dirt McGrit 4
A thoroughly enthralling match-up, with the two sides going back and forth all week. In the end, Alabama took Wins by a single point, and that was decisive - Zimmermann's two victories for the Slammers were decisive, with Gordon adding three HR and eight Runs. However, the other Zimmermann was just as effective for Dirt, with four HR and eight RBI, with Price fanning 13. Alabama now face Sofa in the semis.

(#3) Waffles 4, (#6) Moved Upton 6
Upton pulled off the shock of the quarter-finals, upsetting number-three seeds Waffles. Moved got good work on the mound, with Pitcher of the Week Jimenez notching two W and 18 K, with three Saves by Johnson helping them to a 2.77 ERA. Swisher added three HR. Waffles fought back with a collective .288 BA and Holland got three Sv, but they were left to wonder what might have been. Moved take on Mizzoula this week.

Consolation bracket
(#10) AZ SnakePit 4, (#11) CompleteGameShutout 6
Despite an amazing performance from Hitter of the Week Pence, who had six HR and 19 RBI, Snake came up short, as the rest of the line-up had two HR and 14 RBI combined. Complete had the better pitching with both Rivera and Henderson vulturing wins. Hamilton also drove in six for Shutout.

(#12) Phoenix Platypi 3, (#9) Space Wizard 7
Space had the only victory not decided by a single category. They swept the hitting categories, with Trumbo scoring seven runs and driving in six; he and Soriano each had two homers, as did Davis for the Platypi. They got three Sv from Benoit and 16 K by Darvish, but Weavers W + 10 K let the Wizards hold on.
