dbacktom 4, Eric Byrnes Sucks 4 These two teams couldn't be separated, two categories ending tied. Byrnes has the edge in hitting, thanks to Lugo's 7 RBI, but Boof Bonser's win and 13 K's allowed dbacktom to come back. Byrnes ERA was a miniscule 1.55; WHIP ended all square at 1.08 to leave honors even.
The Fighting Amish 5, Crazy VIII's 4 League leaders VIII wobbled, yet retain sole possession of first, despite a narrow loss to Amish.

4 K's 4 Gonzo 6, Webby17 4 Gonzo used pitching to get the win, with Oswalt having 12 K's and two wins. Dan Johnson's 10 runs weren't enough to beat good hitting from Webby, who batted .331: Ortiz had 7 RBI. Soriano had 3 SB's for Gonzo.
Tucson Myth 3, Kapsaicin Kids 5 Neither side impressed at the plate, combining for just four homers and a .236 average, with four runs the most for any player. Kids got good pitching, with 11 K's from Santana: that, with an ERA below three, was enough.
7-2 Offsuiters 6, warlords 4 Despite an injury to Howard, 7-2 held on, 7 RBI from Andruw Jones being vital. They had an ERA of 2.38 too, which countered three saves from Cordero for Warlords, who also had Gary Matthews, with 4 homers and 11 RBI.
CoJack Forever 5, Shenanigans 4 Four starters for CoJack had 10+ K's and their ERA of 1.96 led them to victory, in a contest where the teams combined for eleven wins and 92 K's. Capuano had a W and 11 K's for Shenan, but both sides were quiet on offense.
Baked 2, the don quixotes 7 don proved almost unstoppable, sweeping the board in hitting, with Casey Blake's eight runs the top performance. Bonderman (Baked) and Hamels (don) each had a win and 7 K's, though the average ERA was a hefty 5.44.
GregSchulteOverdrive 5, Douchebaggery 4 Power hitting was the order of the day, each team slamming ten homers: Morneau (Greg) had three. Greg's edge through hitting was held on to despite solid pitching from Douche; Wagner had three saves for them.
Desert Dingleberries 6, Chupacabras 3 Chupa started well, behind Lowell's week (3 HR, 9 RBI), but the tide turned when Desert took BA by .002. That set the tone: they won ERA by .07 and WHIP by .06, in a contest that was closer than the final score looked.

Desert Dingleberries vs. Douchebaggery is the ESPN game of the week.
