Ridge Bolts 25 5 24 1 0.254 0.754 1 4 37 3 5.03 1.59 2

We begin with the biggest winners of the week, Matt’s Chasers, who swept  the offensive categories to beat the Bolts 10-2, with Joyce and Stubbs doing  much of the damage. Romero won twice and posted nine Ks with Colby Lewis. Bell,  Marshall, Downs and Chapman took care of holds and saves for the Bolts, who  played better than the score would suggest.

Another offensive sweep saw the Angels give my Isotopes a heavy defeat.  Mike Napoli had a five-homer week, single-handedly outproducing my collective slumping offense, while Cueto and the now injured Cliff Lee took ERA and WHIP.  Walden picked up the lone save of the matchup and Garza helped me salvage  strikeouts.

The third offensive sweep in a row saw the Sox defeated Margaret 9-3, with  Cuddyer, Jennings and De Aza the pick of the hitters. Henry Rodriguez, Guerra  and Hanrahan combined for six saves and Hanson struck out 11. Verlander, Vargas  and Crain helped Margaret’s team take wins, holds and ERA.

SWAT took five out of six offensive categories to defeat Tavira 7-4, thanks  to the efforts of Beltran, Bourn, Encarnacion and Doumit. Tavira rebounded by  taking four pitching categories, and you have to tip your hat to their manager for the inspired choice of Philip Humber. His perfecto, unsurprisingly, saw the Expats take wins, ERA and WHIP.

The Vendors’ terrific form continues with a 7-4 win against Beck ‘Nams, with Kemp, Sabathai and King Felix the pick of their players. Beck ‘Nams had  speed from Aviles, Andrus and Cruz and Veras, Papelbon and Wandy Rodriguez helped take wins, saves and ERA in a matchup which was overall very well pitched.

    17th after 3 weeks. Not the best of starts!

      It’s a long season with many a twist and turn to come, as I’ll no doubt come to lament as my positive start goes by the wayside again!
