The biggest win of the week came courtesy of Norwich No II’s 9-2 success over the Cardiff Redsox. They swept the six offensive categories thanks to impressive weeks from Chris Davis, Matt Carpenter, Brandon Phillips and Jean Segura, whilst Jose Fernandez and Jeff Samardzija added a combined 33 strike-outs to the pitching staff’s total. The Redsox were able to take the WHIP and Wins categories, with the resurgent Jarrod Parker contributing two W’s to the pot.

SWAT swept the offensive categories with Paul Goldschmidt, Adrian Beltre and Dexter Fowler leading the way.

Iron Men are third in the league following an 8-4 match-up win over the NE Riverkings.C.J. Wilson, Madison Bumgarner and Max Scherzer helped the Iron Men to win the majority of the pitching categories, with Hisashi Iwakuma’s pitching win being the only one collected by either team’s pitching staffs. Nate McLouth’s four stolen bases allowed the Riverkings to take that category as Freddie Freeman led the offence with 5 runs scored, 6 RBI and a 1.167 OPS.

Batteries Essential got the better of Mark George’s Orpington Isotopes 7-5. The two teams split the pitching categories, with Mark’s Isotopes amassing six pitching wins, two thanks to a typically strong week from Adam Wainwright. However, the Batteries took four of the hitting categories to take the match-up victory with Jacoby Ellsbury’s five stolen-base game against the Phillies proving to be a real difference maker.

Richie’s RBI’s 32 6 22 3 .255 .685 0 3 49 2 3.24 1.08 6

Richie’s RBI’s edged a contest against my Cheddar Chasers 6-5. Ryan Zimmerman’s three longballs bettered the sum total of the Chaser lineup even before Evan Gattis stuck a couple more over the fence. Yu Darvish racked up 20 K’s for the RBI’s but the Texas Rangers didn’t help him earn a win or two along the way. That was good news for me as my team’s three wins – two of the lucky variety via relievers Fernando Rodney and Jake McGee – managed to take that category.

Finally, The Wright Stuff battled through to earn a 6-6 draw against the Weston-Super Sox despite having seven players on the Disabled List. Five of the six pitching categories went the Wright Stuff’s way as Mat Latos led the team with 14 K’s. The Super-Sox hit back by taking five of the hitting categories. Miguel Cabrera launched three homers and collected eight RBI, Mike Napoli added the same number of runs batted in and Michael Cuddyer had two round-trippers on his way to a 1.730 OPS.
