Week 3 Results

Baked 6, NiceCrispyBacon 4
Baked got six W's this week, two of them, along with 12 strikeouts, coming from De La Rosa, but it was BA, which they took by just .004, that proved decisive. Things might have been different if Bacon hadn't lost Ramirez to the DL. Dunn homered twice for Baked.

Confederate Generals 3, Sofa King Juiced 7
Neither side pitched well - Sofa's 4.75 ERA was enough for victory, Rodney picking up a Win and two Saves for them. They won, despite benching Konerko and Johnson, who each homered four times. Morneau had two HR and drove in seven for the Generals.

7-2 Offsuiters 5, Shoryukens! 5
The teams hit .315 and .324 respectively; 7-2 had a narrow edge in hitting overall, thanks to Braun (8 RBI, 6 Runs) and Reyes three SB. However, Shoryu came back to level things on the mound: Rodriguez had three Saves and seven K's, and Papelbon a W and two Sv.

Balco's Boys 5, Funny Team Name 5
Boys piled up 53 K's, Hughes getting a W and ten strikeouts, and took WHIP by a narrow margin of .004. However, Funny got the only save through Aardsma, giving them victory. On offense, Bourn (Boys) had seven R + seven SB; Reynolds (Funny) had three HR + 11 RBI.

Moving on Uptons 4, AZ SnakePit 6
Uptons can feel unlucky: they lost W by one, RBI by two and WHIP by .005. Still, they only hit .202: Lopez had a HR and six RBI; Youkilis one and five RBI for Snake, who also got five SB from Cruz. Capps (Uptons) and Qualls (Snake) each posted a trio of saves.

Lady Gaga Regatta 5, Blonde Streaks 5
The week's third contest saw Regatta hit .317: Blake homered twice, and he + Cabrera each drove in eight runs. Morales had three homers and 10 RBI for Blonde. They also took four of five pitching categories, with a 2.21 ERA. Danks was their ace (2 W, 14 K).

warlords 3, The Fighting Amish 5
With Wins and Saves ending tied, it was Amish's sweep elsewhere on the mound which was decisive. A 1.44 ERA and 1.06 WHIP proved enough, with Nolasco getting a W and nine K's. war fought back in hitting, where Gonzalez had four HR, but fell short in the end.
