The Fighting Amish 5, last place 4

But Amish rode Lincecum to 11 K's and a zero ERA, and Santana added 12 K's. Their staff had a 2.06 ERA on the week, and Lincecum's win was enough for a split there, and overall victory.
Tucson Myth 8, Shenanigans 2.0 2

Adriano Rosario's 7, Crazy VIII's 3
VII's can count themselves a bit unlucky: three Wins and a 2.90 ERA were not good enough, Rosario getting four and a 2.62 ERA - Harden had a W and 11 K's for them, while Peavy had 12 K's for VIII. At the plate, Rosario got three HR and ten RBI from Longoria, and they took four of the five categories.
Desert Dingleberries 5, Blonde Streaks 4

Arizona Muugens 2, SHUperMen 7
SHU were hardly an offensive tornado - .261, 6 HR, 23 RBI - but took all hitting points, and that was the difference. Ramirez and Hart each had two HR for them.

An even easier pick for Game of the Week, as the top two face off in a battle of the titans, Amish vs. warlords. Amish have put together four wins in a row, with a 27-12 record over that time, but warlords showed last week that they didn't get to the top just because of a weak schedule, holding dbacktom to a tie.Their outfield Red Sox duo of Ramirez and Drew have combined for 31 homers and 100 RBI already. However, Amish's 1-2 punch of Lincecum and Santana, with Sherrill's 26 saves, are a formidable opponent.
