Pick 6: Win A Free T-shirt! Plus SnakePit Fantasy Baseball

End of the week for both Pick 6 and the SnakePit Fantasy Baseball. As mentioned last night (see there for the official rules, etc), for the next four weeks, we'll be giving away two Pick 6 shirts per week, to the overall weekly winner, and the players with the largest single-day score. You've still got time to get your choices in for the first day of the contest, as games don't start until 4pm. Here are the numbers for yesterday, and the totals for last week, in which Canadiamondback kicked all your (not New York) Yankee asses. Are you going to stand for that, America? :-) Hey, what do I know: this Limey was last yesterday. Yep. Again...

Alabama Slammers 6, Sofa King Juiced 4

AZ SnakePit 5, Los Wailoracles 4
A battle of cellar-dwellers went Pit's way, with HR ending tied at four. AZ swept hitting otherwise, behind McCutchen (three HR, six RBI) and Cabrera (seven RBI). But Los did almost as well on pitching, behind Halladay's 17 K's and Feliz (two W, 13 K). Niese's nine strikeouts gave that, and overall victory, to the 'Pit.

Mizzoula Osprey 4, The Fighting Amish 6
This was close, despite Amish getting the best week in AZSP fantasy history from Hamilton - nine HR, 18 RBI, more in both categories than the Osprey managed in total. But Osprey almost swept pitching, with Hanson giving them a W and 10 K's - in the end, Amish's win by .01 in WHIP proved decisive.

Alabama Slammers 6, Sofa King Juiced 4
A K-filled contest, the sides combining for 150. Slammers swept pitching, with two Wins and 10 K's by Volquez, and 13 strikeouts from Strasburg. Bell vultured two W's for Sofa, and they also got two home-runs and seven drvien in by LaRoche. But Slammers edged SB by one, to give them their final margin.

Blonde Streaks 6, CompleteGameShutout 3
Blonde's victory kept their hold on the top spot, taking three points in both pitching and hitting. Craig had four HR and nine RBI for them, while in any other week, Beltran's six HR, 13 RBI week would have won hitting honors for Complete. Sabathia got a Win and 10 strikeouts for the Streaks.

soco knows 3, MyWieterGetzLongoria 5
Pitching was split evenly here, two points apiece, with Sv shared. Zambrano (Wieter) has the best individual numbers, with a W + 16 K's. Votto led the hitter for them too, with three HR and eight RBI. Pedroia scored eight and drove in nine for soco, and Greinke struck out 11 batters as well.

Phoenix Platypi 3, Waffles 7
The Platypi had Pitcher of the Week Verlander (two W, 14 K) and Johnson got three Saves, but that didn't lead them to victory. Waffles countered with a Win plus 14 strikeouts from Lynn, ten runs from Andrus, and Bruce homered twice while driving in eight runs, as well as a collective 2.41 ERA for the week.

Lil Bitches 5, Ignatius J. Rallies 4
Lil edged the Rallies, with RBI ending level at 23. Markakis (Lil) and Bautista (Rallies) each homered three times for their respective sides, but the former's seven RBI, compared to the latter's three, proved decisive. Lilly picked up a pair of Wins for Lil, who edged the Ralies by just 0.02 for ERA.
