Cardiff Redsox 27 3 23 1 .265 .722 2 1 36 1 4.46 1.17 1

Iron Men produced the biggest win of Week 18 with a 10-1 triumph over the Cardiff Redsox. J.J. Hardy hit three home runs, Matt Holliday added two more and Eric Hosmer continued his recent good form with eight RBI and five runs scored as Iron Men swept up the offensive categories. The Redsox were able to take WHIP and earned a split in holds thanks to Luke Gregeson matching Trevor Rosenthal’s single hold. However Iron Men took the other four categories thanks to solid work across the board by the pitching staff, including another win courtesy of Max Scherzer.

SWAT* 35 10 33 7 .305 .903 6 3 39 3 4.24 1.26 10

SWAT extended their lead at the top of the league to ten games following a 10-2 match-up win over the Wright Stuff. The Wright Stuff continued to benefit from Justin Upton’s hot streak as he added three homers to the total, whilst Adrian Gonzalez led the team with eight RBI, but that wasn’t enough to take any of the offensive categories against SWAT’s formidable lineup.  They received home runs from seven different sources, with Adam Jones and Adrian Beltre both going deep twice and adding a combined 15 runs and 15 RBI. SWAT continued their collection policy with six pitchers all adding a win to the team’s tally, whilst David Robertson added three holds. The Wright Stuff will be hoping the forearm tightness that cut shut Chris Archer’s recent start proves to be a minor issue.

Weston-Super-Sox 20 4 25 1 .314 .836 4 2 33 0 3.66 1.22 4

Orpington Isotopes continued their good recent form, moving up to fourth in the league on the back of an 8-4 victory over Weston-Super-Sox. Elvis Andrus was the star offensive performer for the Isotopes with five stolen bases, whilst Wilin Rosario, Andrew McCutchen, Jose Bautista and Yasiel Puig all put up an OPS over 1.000. Miguel Cabrera was once again the unstoppable force for the Super-Sox with four homers and 11 RBI, and the team’s pitching staff was able to capture three category wins, but they were not enough to stop the Isotopes from taking the match-up.

NE Riverkings 37 3 25 4 .333 .877 2 3 38 1 2.55 1.01 7

The NE Riverkings prevailed over my Cheddar Chasers by 7-4. Alex Gordon, Jose Reyes and Mike Trout all made useful contributions for the Chasers and Alex Rios immediately took to his new surroundings as a Texas Ranger to help take four of the offensive categories. The Riverkings’ pitching staff proved to be the difference though, with only Kevin Gregg’s three saves saving me from a pitching category sweep. Clayton Kershaw led the pitching staff with his dominant display against the Rays on Sunday night, although the Riverkings may need to keep in mind that Matt Harvey is likely to be given an early end to his season by the Mets to keep his innings pitched down.

The teams couldn’t be separated in the final two match-ups of the week. Beck’Nams and Richie’s RBI’s both grabbed six points in a dead heat.  Beck’Nams took most of the pitching categories thanks to Justin Verlander (1W, 16Ks), Felix Hernandez (1W, 12Ks) and Greg Holland (3SV, 6K’s, 0.00 ERA). Richie’s RBI’s responded by taking most of the offensive categories with six players hitting the ball over the fence including two by Arizona’s Aaron Hill who also added seven RBI.

Batteries Essential and Norwich No II both came out of their match-up with five category wins and, again, the contest was split between the two sides of the ball. Norwich No II got the better of the batting side thanks to multi-homer weeks from Jayson Werth and the league-leading Chris Davis, whilst Hunter Pence and Jean Segura both stole two bases on the week. the Batteries’ pitching success was the result of strong starts by Tim Lincecum, Dillon Gee, Ricky Nolasco and Hyun-Jin Ryu, with Joaquin Beniot and Addison Reed adding two saves each.
