Week 19 Results

AZ SnakePit 5, Captain Douchebag 5
Captain went slap-hit happy; with only one homer all week, they hit an Ichiro-esque .372. SnakePit got two HR and six RBI each from Swisher and Overbay, but ten strikeouts from both Hernandez and Garza allowed Captain to take K's by a margin of three, and secure a tie.

Blonde Streaks 5, Balco's Boys 4
Blonde edged this one, with a 1.83 team ERA, though Wilson vultured up a pair of wins for Balco's. Morales (Blonde) was the only player on either side to homer more than once, and also scored nine runs. Jenks (Blonde) had two Sv; Floyd (Balco's) struck out 12.

GregSchulteOverdrive 8, Baked 2
Greg have Player of the Week Howard to thank for the win - his numbers, including four HR and 11 RBI, proved the difference in four of the five hitting categories. They also got a Win and two Saves from Rodriguez, while Baked got 11 strikeouts from Lester.

Arizona Muugens 2, Desert Dingleberries 6
While both sides batted well (.328 + .332), Desert came out ahead, with Jeter (three HR, seven Runs) being crucial in taking all but one hitting category. Things were split evenly on the mound: Danks had a Win + 11 K's for Desert; Pettitte struck out ten for Muugens.

Wimboes Barmy Army 4, Moving on Uptons 5
The teams combined for only six HR, but two by Pujols proved the deciding factor, giving Uptons a tie there, and overall victory. They also got eight RBI from Lee - seven in one game. Wolf gave Army two Wins + 13 K, but a 2.50 ERA for Uptons held off the comeback.

7-2 Offsuiters 7, Kapsaicin Kids 0
Not as one-sided as it seemed; with none of the 'counting stats' categories e.g. Runs, K, etc. decided by more than three. Fielder gave three HR and seven RBI to 7-2; Kouzmanoff drove in eight; Soria had a W and a Sv. For Kids, Fielder had four HR and ten RBI.

warlords 2, Confederate Generals 7
Generals swept hitting, behind four HR by Braun, despite war countering with four from Bay. Kemp delivered, appropriately, seven RBI and two HR for 7-2. war restored respectability to the score on the mound, splitting those categories; Sanchez struck out 13.

The Fighting Amish 5, Shoryukens! 4
Gonzalez scored ten runs and had three HR for Amish, but Abreu's two SB were as crucial in securing the win. Tulowitzki had nine Runs, three HR & eight RBI for Shoryu. Franklin Saved three for Amish; Carpenter (Amish) and Sabathia (Shoru) each had a W + 10 K.

Week 20 Games

7-2 Offsuiters vs. Moving on Uptons

7-2 Offsuiters vs. Moving on Uptons is the MLB Network Game of the Week [some parts of the country may see The Fighting Amish vs. Confederate Generals] League leaders 7-2 bounced back, posting a shutout, and will be looking to retain that form. Their strength is mostly in pitching, particularly K's where they have a record of 13-5-1 this season, and ERA (13-6). The Uptons, on the other hand, are better at the plate: they are 14-4-1 in HR and 14-5 in both RBI and BA. Will good pitching beat good hitting? We should find out this round.
