Desert Storm BC vs. Arizona Muugens
The ESPN game of the week sees The Fighting Amish take on Shenanigans 2.0. Amish have a solid 8-3 record that has seen them climb to second place, and they'll be looking to narrow the gap on leaders warlords. But Shen had a solid victory over dbacktom, and seek to add another scalp to the list. Amish have benefited from the .427 hitting of Damon over the past month, and a 1-2 punch of Santana and Lincecum has also proven effective. Shen have a pair of powerful sluggers in Burrell and Howard, and probably have the edge there; however, their pitching staff has been shaky of late, with only Millwood and Maholm having more than one win in the last month.
