AZ SnakePit 1, Uk Dbacks 7
In this Battle of Britain, the home team beat the expats, though many categories were pretty close: three K's and runs, or 4 RBIs. UK's Howard lead in HR and RBI, with Bradley batting an impressive .714 in this abbreviated week.
Man of the Match: Nathan (UK) - 1 W, 1 Sv, 0.00 ERA, 0.50 WHIP
DFA'ders 6, Random Fandom 4
Chipper Jones was largely the difference between these two sides, powering DFA to a sweep in the hitting categories, assisted by Floyd's 6 RBIs. Random hit back with pitching led by 10 K's from Webb and Lackey, but Jones' save proved decisive in giving this match to DFA.
Man of the Match: Jones (DFA) - 5 R, 3 HR, 7 RBI, .615
JByrnesIsMyHomie 5, BigLebowski 3
Good batting was the theme here, the sides hitting .323 and .310 respectively. Guerrero powered Byrnes to victory in all five offensive categories, with half his teams HR and RBI. Big did well in pitching behind Pettitte's 10 K's, but neither team managed a save.
Man of the Match: Guerrero (Byrnes) - 4 R, 2 HR, 6 RBI, /636
Browncoats 4, ?Chalino Sanchez! 5
Probably the closest game of the week, Chalino winning by a single point, and taking BA by .001 points. So, I guess Podsednik's .444 for the week proved their hero. Browncoats were hurt by Pedro going on the DL, and managed only 9 K's for the week, but still took ERA and WHIP.
Man of the Match: Teixeira (Chalino) - 3 R, 3 HR, 8 RBI, .308
GregSchulteOverdrive 4, The Loose Seals 6
Seals rode strong hitting and a .341 average to victory, and held on despite barely making the minimum innings on the pitching side, where Greg's Schilling had more K's than Seals' entire roster. Rivera's two saves were still enough to give them that category, and the win.
Man of the Match: Jones (Seals) - 4 R, 2 HR, 6 RBI, .385
The Fighting Amish 4, 7-2 Offsuiters 3
A close contest here, with each side posting 16 runs, 2 HR and one win. A single stolen base from Rollins proved the margin there, and that point gave Amish the contest overall. Lugo's .545 average for 7-2 helped offset two man below .100, but neither team will be very happy with their overall performances.
Man of the Match: Beltran (Amish) - 4 R, 1 HR, 5 RBI
KarateMonkeyDeathCar 1, BBTNG 9
The biggest whipping of the week went to Karate, but they can consider themselves somewhat unlucky, losing by two runs and one save. They did take WHIP, but otherwise, BBTNG swept the board, with Renteria scoring seven runs, and Iba?ez driving in six, alongside Phat Albert.
Man of the Match: Pujols (BBTNG) - 4 R, 2 HR, 6 RBI, .500

Loose Seals get the TV nod again, this time facing the Amish. Amish have a speedy outfield with Pierre and Crawford combining for 19 SBs this month, and both are batting above .325 over that time too. Saves might be a weakness though, with only thirteen from Rodriguez and Benitez. However, only Rivera has saves for Seals, and Reyes will be a big threat on the basepaths for them, though Damon and Crisp should not be ignored there.
