Douchebaggery 4, Desert Dingleberries 6
Desert took all five hitting points, thanks to McLouth (9 R, 4 HR, 9 RBI) - Cantu (Desert) and Favis (Douche) had three homers each. Douche had ten saves - five from Gregg - but Burnett's 15 K's helped Desert stop the sweep, and that point was enough to give them overall victory.

The Fighting Amish 2, GregSchulteOverdrive 7

Tucson Myth 2, warlords 8
war got a W and 11 K from both Baker and Pettitte, while Papelbon notched three saves, as they went 5-for-5 in pitching. Myth were a little unlucky, losing HR by one, and BA by .003 - normally, .314 would be enough to win, but Ramirez's .500 week gave that to war.
7-2 Offsuiters 9, last place 1

Adriano Rosario's 9, Shenanigans 2.0 1
An astonishing 65 strikeouts for Adriano, Hamels and Kazmir notching 16, while Verlander had two wins plus 15 K's. Only Howard's week allowed Shen to avoid a clean sweep: he had five of their seven homers. Hamilton drove in 11 for Adriano; a warm-up for his Home Run Derby exploits?
Crazy VIII's 3, Kapsaicin Kids 7
Billingsley had 21 strikeouts for Kids, and the victory he produced was also crucial, as it was their pitching which won this for them, despite four saves from Rodriguez for VIII. McCann homered three times for Kids, while Beltran drove in, appropriately, eight for VIII.
Arizona Muugens 4, Blonde Streaks 5
In contrast to last week, this was the only close game. HR were in short supply - only eight combined - and the resulting tie was enough for Blonde, who batted .313 on the week. Sabathia had two wins and 14 K's for them, while Webb [W + 12 K's] countered for Muugens.
Wimboes Barmy Army 6, SHUperMen 4
