Desert Dingleberries vs. Kapsaicin Kids is the ESPN game of the week, pitting two teams with identical records against each other. Kids are on a roll, not having lost since Week 5, but all those games were against lower-half teams, so Desert is the sternest test they've faced during the streak. Sosa has four wins in the past month for them, and Swisher has driven in 16 runs, with Taveras batting .344. Desert have ridden Willis and Penny (seven wins each) on the mound, but have a homer-heavy offense with double-figure threats in Pena, Wright and Sosa.
