Another matchup, another 8-3 as the Riverkings defeated the Chasers. The hitters and pitchers each took four categories. Montero and Desmond each had three-homer weeks, while Robertson, Allen and Blevins took care of saves and holds. It was hardly a vintage week for the ERA of both staffs, but Buehrle made the difference for the Riverkings. Kipnis and Leonys Martin each had two steals for the Chasers, while Miguel Cabrera, Pence and Crisp posted huge OPS stats. Ryu was the pick of the starters.
