We start with the league-leading SWAT who earned another match-up win by a score of 8-4 over Batteries Essential. Jacoby Ellsbury’s four stolen bases and Torii Hunter’s strong week (2HR, 5R, 11RBI) helped Batteries in a couple of categories, but Adrian Beltre (4HR), Robinson Cano (3HR, 10RBI) and Paul Goldschmidt (2HR, 7RBI) powered SWAT’s offence, whilst John Lackey’s 15K’s, David Robertson’s 4 Holds and a combined 5 Saves by Mariano Rivera and Jim Johnson kept the pitching in excellent shape.

The Wright Stuff also completed an 8-4 victory last week, this one coming at the expense of the NE Riverkings. Mat Latos, Patrick Corbin and Grant Balfour led the pitching staff to three of those categories, whilst the offence took all but one category with Adrian Gonzalez’s three homers leading the team. For the Riverkings, a stolen base apiece by Jason Heyward, Shin-Soo Choo and Alcides Escobar was enough to take that category and James Russell and Junichi Tazawa helped them to the Holds category.

My Cheddar Chasers narrowly hauled their way off the foot of the table thanks to a 7-4 match-up win over Iron Men. Alex Gordon, Mike Trout and Kyle Seager got the offence going and Jose Reyes continued his encouraging return from injury, although Jose Altuve’s three stolen bases helped Iron Men to avoid an offensive category sweep. The pitching categories were split equally. Iron Men’s six pitching wins came from six different pitchers, whilst David Price had a great week for the Chasers delivering two wins and fifteen K’s.

Richie’s RBI’s gained a 7-5 win over the Orpington Isoptopes. The outstanding feature of the match-up was the RBI’s stolen base total. Starling Marte’s five stolen bases would have been enough to win this category in other matches all on their own, but Richie’s team added seven more including three from the returning Bryce Harper. Scott Cishek, Chris Perez and Sergio Romo combined to amass five saves for the Isotopes and Yasiel Puig continued his excellent introduction to the Majors.

Norwich No II 28 8 32 3 .228 .703 3 2 59 0 3.99 1.28 3

The Super-Sox took home a 6-5 victory over Norwich No II. It was the familiar characters that led the way for both teams, Miguel Cabrera and Hanley Ramirez got the Super-Sox’s offence moving whilst Chris David continued to stick balls over the fence for No II and Josh Hamilton had the sort of week that his supporters have been waiting for a good year for. The Sox were able to take three of the pitching categories but Norwich No II had their young aces in form with Stephen Strasburg (17K’s) and Jose Fernandez (15K’s) continuing to dominate teams.

Cardiff Redsox 36 10 29 10 .280 .790 1 4 33 1 4.68 1.32 6

The closest match-up of the week was also the most extreme in terms of pitching and offence. Apart from a few homers, the Beck’Nams batting lineup didn’t show up all week and that helped the Cardiff Redsox sweep the offensive categories, although their impressive total of ten stolen bases played a part too. The Beck’Nams’ pitching staff bailed the team out of a desperate position to at least gain five category wins on the week, with Jered Weaver and Greg Holland being the two key contributors.
