Week 14 results

AZ SnakePit 5, MyWieterGetzLongoria 4
Snake edged Wieter, with Sv ending tied. AZ otherwise took all the pitching points, with Arrieta notching two W + 13 strikeouts, and also batted .327 for the week, with Gomez getting two HR and 10 RBI. Longoria got two HR and six driven in by Sano, Gray adding a W + 11 K.

Angry Saguaro 7, Rougned Hodor 3
Saguaro's trade for Syndergaard paid off immediately, as he led their pitching with a Win and 13 strikeouts; Quintana added 17 K's. Iwakuma was Hodor's best pitcher (W + nine K), but they managed only two home-runs. Gonzalez alone matched that tally for Angry.

Smell the Glove 3, What the Hellickson? 7
A pair of home-runs by Machado led What's offense to the win, despite a trio of long-balls by Cespedes for Smell. They also did better on pitching where Casilla notched a trio of saves. However, Hellickson held on, behind 10 strikeouts by McCullers and a total of 65 K's.

Socrates Burritos 3, Waffles 7
The Waffles swept the hiting points, getting two home-runs and five driven in from both Grandal and Gonzalez, while Socrates did get four HR by Jones. Their pitching was led by Heaney's two Wins and 11 strikeouts; Cuete countered with a W + 13 K for Waffles, allowing them to hold on.

Trail-Hitters 3, CGS 6
Leaders Trail lost to 3rd-placed CGS, though still hold a commanding lead. CGS used excellent relief pitching, with eight Sv and 0.00 ERA., though the Hitters got five Sv from Famila. CGS also had Hitter of the Week Trout, whose five HR and 10 RBI delivered on his  #1 pick status.

Dirk Ziegler 0, Mizzoula Osprey 10
The Osprey whitewashed last-placed Dirk. Allen and Holland each notched three Saves, the latter also picking up a W, while Lester struck out 16. Uehara notched three Sv for Ziegler, and Kemp homered twice, but it was all Mizzoula; Parra homered twice and Tulowitzki drove in five.

Alabama Slammers 4, Yasmany as Possible 6
Bit of a surprise here, second-placed Alabama going down to Yasmany., for whom Dozier had three HR and 10 RBI. They also had Pitcher of the Week Sale (two W, 16 K), with Gibson adding two W + 13 strikeouts. Boxberger saved three for Alabama, and Martinez added three HR.

Trail-Hitters take on Waffles in the ESPN game of the week. Trail's best category is Saves, where the remain undefeated with a 12-0-2 record. They aren't below .500 in any area, as their weakest area is Wins, with a mark of only 6-6-2.  K and ERA are tied as Waffles's strongest suit, where they have gone 10-4 to date; and they have a winning record across the board on the mound. Hitting, not so much, and they are only 5-9 in both R and SB.
