SnakePit Fantasy Baseball, Week 6

In contrast to last week's close set of games, there was only one this week decided by a margin of less than four points? Who romped home, and who got a sound thrashing?

Yeah, we saw a bit TOO much of Harper last week...

Angry Saguaro will become the latest to try and halt the unstoppable force which is the Alabama Slammers in the ESPN Game of the Week. The Saguaro  have been powered by their hitting so far, going 4-2 in three offensive categories, and their .287 batting average leads the league. The Slammers, on the other hand, have yet to taste defeat in Saves, going 5-0-1 there, but are also 4-1-1 in K, so will good pitching beat good hitting?
