Week 20 Results

AZ SnakePit 2, CGS 7
CGS hit their way to victory, sweeping all five batting points behind two HR and five RBI from Hamlton, while Heyward scored six and drove in seven. Frazier had two HR for Snake, who did better on the mound with Kennedy getting a W + 11 K, but McGee's W + Sv let CGS cruise home.

Gregorius B.I.G. 6, Waffles 4
A slugfest saw the team combine for 21 homers: Cruz (Waffles) and Arcia (Gregorius) each notching three, but the latter's eight RBI helped BIG pull away; Peralta added two HR and six RBI. They also got three Saves by Janssen, which countered the Win and two Saves posted for Waffles by Allen.

Sofa King Juiced 4, Trumboner 6
Sofa had the Hitter of the week in Duda, who homered five times and drove in 11, but it wasn't enough to escape defeat. That's because Trumboner took all the pitching categories, with Bumgarner geting a W + 12 K's and Rodney notched three Sv. Scherzer had a W + 13 K's for Juiced.

MyWieterGetzLongoria 6, Mizzoula Osprey 2
Leaders Mizzoula suffered a surprising defeat at the hands of Wieter, despite having Pitcher of the Week Fiers (two W, 13 K). Longoria had a collective 2.28 ERA, led by Archer's 12 K and 1.42 ERA. Dickerson had two HR for the Osprey, but they only hit .185. Calhoun scored six for Wieter.

Trail-Hitters 5, Angry Saguaro 5
The Saguaro held the Hitters, with Kershaw's win and 10 K's anchoring the former's rotation. Shields had a W and six K for Trail, who also got two HR and five Runs from Posey. But Angry countered with three HR and seven Runs by Marte, and a tie was fair, with RBI, W and Sv all decided by one.

Got Grittiness? 3, Space Wizard 7
Got continued their ceaseless match towards relegation with four on the DL and another spot just left empty. Ozuna had three HR and eight RBI, with Trout and Ortiz homering twice for Space. They also got three Saves from Papelbon, and Strasburg picked up a W and eight strikeouts.

The Rusty Trumbones 2, Alabama Slammers 6
The televised game of the week saw Alabama move into first place, with a pitching staff that racked up 89 K's along with a 2.02 ERA. Sale notched 15 strikeouts, with Rondon getting four Sv and Holland three. Soriano won two for Rusty, and Upton had two HR and 11 RBI. Martinez matched the latter for the slammer.

No questions about the televised game of the week, as Alabama Slammers take on the Mizzoula Osprey, in a battle of the top two teams. While it would be a major shock if either were to end up outside the playoff, seeding positions and a very helpful first-round bye remain at stake. There are only two rounds of games before the playoffs begin, so a decisive result here could lead to a significant change in the standings, and set up some interesting scenarios for the final week.
