Week 14 Results

AZ SnakePit 5, MyWieterGetzLongoria 5
The ESPN Game of the Week proved a worthy choice, as nothing could separate these two. Wieter had a good week on offense, led by Ross (two HR, six R) and Franklin (two HR, five R), but Snake countered on pitching with Strasburg (W + 17 K) and Papelbon (three Sv).

Phoenix Platypi 7, Got Grittiness? 3
The Platypi had a sub-two ERA, led by Pitcher of the Week Moore's two Wins and 15 strikeouts, backed by Kershaw's two Wins and 11 K's, to sweep pitching. They also got two HR and seven RBI from Uggla; Got's best was nine R and six RBI off the bat of Jennings.

Alabama Slammers 6, Blonde Streaks 4
The Slammers took RBI by one, and that was enough to give them overall victory, with Gordon's two HR and five driven in proving crucial. Gonzalez had three HR and five RBI for Blonde, but their pitchers went winless. Lackey led Alabama on the mound, with a W and 15 K's.

Waffles 6, The Fighting Amish 4
It was just as close here, a Win being all that separated these two teams. Lynn had a W and 15 K for winners Waffles, Latos a W along with 11 strikeouts for losers Amish. On offense, Cruz (Waffles) and Morales (Amish) each homered twice and drove in six for their teams.

Sofa King Juiced 7, Space Wizard 2
Leaders Sofa extended their advantage at the top, pounding 13 homers behind Hitter of the Week Beltre (four HR, .478 BA), with a collective .302 average. Space got two HR and 11 RBI from Hunter, and two W + 11 K by Weaver, but three Sv from Balfour were enough for Sofa.

Mizzoula Osprey 5, CompleteGameShutout 4
Second-placed Mizzoula squeaked past Complete in the week's narrowest win: HR ended tied at eight. They got two HR and seven RBI from Goldschmidt, but Complete batted .310, led by McCann (six R, .600 BA). Rivera Saved three for them, Holland fanned ten for the Osprey.

Dirt McGrit 7, Moved Upton 3
Dirt hit .232, but three HR and 10 RBI by Cano helped their offense, backed by Hosmer (two HR, six RBI), while Price got two W and 15 strikeouts, as they piled up eight Wins. Ibanez led Upton's offense (two HR, .381 BA) and Soriano saved three games in a losing cause.
