AZ SnakePit 7, Blonde Streaks 3
Blonde hit .308 for the week, and got four Saves from Brian Wilson, but that wasn't enough, with the 'Pit rolling to a relatively easy victory. They racked up 11 HR behind Sandoval's trio, while Hanson racked up a Win and 14 strikeouts. McClellan won two for Blonde, while Reyes has three SB for the 'Pit.

Alabama Slammers 8, Whooping Zoidbergs 2
Slammers got some great pitching this week, with a collective 2.17 ERA, seven Wins and 74 strikeouts. Billingsley fanned 17, while Pineda won twice, and Valverde got two W's plus a save, as they swept pitching. Hitting was closer - Rasmus scored ten Runs for Zoidbergs - but the Slammers prevailed.

Lady Gaga Regatta 2, Los Wailoracles 7
Tulowitzki (Los) was the outstanding batter in this game, hitting .519 with four HR and eight RBI and providing half of his teams homers in this contest. Team-mate Pence drove in 7, and Los batted .305. Holliday scored eight Runs for Lady, and Bell vultured a Win as well as two Saves, in a losing cause.

The Fighting Amish 5, Phoenix Platypi 5
Champions Amish are still looking for their first win, being held by the Platypi to a tie, in a game with few standout performances: nobody had more than one HR or ten strikeouts, and only Gonzalez (Platypi) had more than six R or RBI - he drove in eight. Farnsworth got a W + two Sv for the Amish.

Ignatius J. Rallies 2, Lil Bitches 7
Lil continued their good start with another clear victory, despite Haren notching two Wins, 14 K's and a 1.17 ERA to take Pitcher of the Week honors for the Rallies - they lost Mauer to the DL. Lil got two HR from Granderson, while Volquez got then a Win plus 11 strikeouts.

Mizzoula Osprey 7, warlords 3
New arrivals Mizzoula were lucky to meet an opponent having a poor week - normally, hitting .221 with 22 RBI and two W won't succeed, but war hit .178 with 14 RBI and zero W. Mizzoula did have the Hitter of the Week, as Berkman had six HR with a dozen RBI - that was 75% of all the homers in this game!

Bad Wolf 6, Sofa King Juiced 4
A close contest, with R, HR and W all decided by a single tally. Sofa hit very well, batting .320, led by Kemp who hit .520 and drove in eight, but Pujols scored ten Runs with three HR for Bad. Lester (Wolf) and Dempster (Sofa) each got a W + 13 K's, but Rivera (W + three Sv) helped Bad sweep pitching for overall victory.

Week 3 Games

AZ SnakePit vs. Lady Gaga Regatta
Alabama Slammers vs. Blonde Streaks
The Fighting Amish vs. Los Wailoracles
Ignatius J. Rallies vs. Phoenix Platypi
Mizzoula Osprey vs. Lil Bitches
Bad Wolf vs. warlords
Sofa King Juiced vs. Whooping Zoidbergs

No question about the ESPN Game of the Week, as league leaders Lil Bitches take on second-placed Mizzoula Osprey. Both teams have come out of the gates firing on all cylinders, scoring seven or more points each week, but that's a run which will come to an end for one of them. Votto (#5 player overall) leads Lil's offense, while Berkman (#6) does the same for Mizzoula. It's a game likely to be decided by hitting, as neither team owns a pitcher currently ranked in the top forty.
