Balco's Boys 4, Moving on Uptons 6
[Last time: 2-5] Morneau took Player of the Week honors for Uptons, with five homers and 11 RBI; Lee also drove in ten for them, and Uptons accumulated thirteen homers. Balco's hit back on the mound, where Floyd had a Win and fourteen strikeouts, though still came up short.

Captain Douchebag 5, Kapsaicin Kids 3
[Last time: 7-3] Captain got off the losing trail, due to their pitching staff, led by Fuentes (W and two Saves) and Garza (W and nine K's). Rollins had three HR plus ten RBI for Kids, and Holliday drove in ten too; however, Captain's .306 team average clinched victory.

Arizona Muugens 5, Confederate Generals 3
[Last time: 3-6] Muugens got revenge for that first-week loss, though it was close - Wins and Saves ended tied and they took ERA by .14. Pettitte had 15 K's, and Peralta had eight RBI. Braun and Markakis combined for six homers and drove in fifteen for the General.

Wimboes Barmy Army 4, Shoryukens! 6
[Last time: 7-2] The Army dominated on the mound, with a 0.86 WHIP - Scherzer had a W and 14 strikeouts, while Rivera picked up three saves. However, a sweep at the plate propelled Shoryu to victory: seven Runs and two HR by Reynolds, plus five RBI from Peña.

7-2 Offsuiters 5, The Fighting Amish 5
[Last time: 3-6] The televised game between the top two teams was a classic, honors ending even in a game of two halves. Amish took all the hitting, with three HR and seven RBI from Napoli. But 7-2 roared back with a matching sweep in pitching: Lee getting two Wins.

warlords 6, Baked 4
[Last time: 6-4] A repeat of Week 1's scoreline; Francoeur and Ramirez each had two HR for war, countering Drew's ten Runs for Baked. Sanchez got 13 strikeouts for war, while Broxton picked up a vulture W as well as a save, but Baked's pitching failed them for once.

Arizona Muugens vs. Kapsaicin Kids
Wimboes Barmy Army vs. Confederate Generals
7-2 Offsuiters vs. Shoryukens!
warlords vs. The Fighting Amish

7-2 Offsuiters vs. Shoryukens! is the televised game of the week, leaders 7-2 continuing a tough stretch of their schedule - having fought to a tie with #2-ranked Amish, they now face #3-placed Shoryu. The left side of Shoru's infield is a force to be reckoned with, Reynolds and Ramirez having combined for 130 RBI already, and there isn't even room for Adrian Gonzalez. 7-2's pitching, so effective against Amish, will need to be at their best, Gallardo and Nathan their best performers to date.
