SnakePit Fantasy Baseball, Week 5

New, comment

A tight week of games, with no side managing to score more than six points, and some very close categories. But does that still affect the standings?

AZ SnakePit 4, Trail-Hitters 5
Snake had Hitter of the Week Harper, whose six home-runs and 13 RBI took them within one SB of a sweep in hitting, Pollock adding two HR and seven R. But that tie proved crucial, since Trail did sweep pitching, behind Street's two wins, Familia's three Sv and Salazar's W + 20 K.

MyWieterGetzLongoria 6, Socrates Burritos 3
Wieter took WHIP by 0.0008 - 1.3676 to 1.3684 - plus Saves by one, and that was enough. Storen's Win, two Saves and a 0.33 WHIP was thus crucial. while Wong's two HR and nine RBI led their hitters. Socrates got a pair of homers from Brantley, while DeGrom added a Win and nine K's.

Dirk Ziegler 5, Rougned Hodor 5
The week's closest game saw honors even between Dierk and Rougned. The Zieglers racked up 71 K and a sub-three ERA, behind a W + 15 K from Richards, but hit only .217 with two HR. That led Hodor back in, Rizzo providing three of their 11 home-runs, and driving in seven.

Alabama Slammers 3, What the Hellickson? 5

Mizzoula Osprey 4, Waffles 5
The Osprey came tantalizingly close to their first W, but came up short, despite hitting .301. Betts had three HR and Hosmer two HR + 10 runs driven in. However, Waffles held on, behind Pitcher of the Week Pineda (two Wins and 22 K's), while Feliz saved three and Semien notched two homers.
