It really couldn’t be much closer at the top of the BaseballGB Fantasy League, with the top five teams just two games apart. There’s been another change at the top as well …

We begin with the biggest winner of the week, as Matt’s Chasers dealt the Sox an 11-1 loss. Tyson Ross collected a win, did not allow an earned run and struck out nine, while Joe Smith had a win and three saves and Benoit notched three holds. Simmons hit .458 for the week, driving in seven while Miggy scored eight runs. Altuve and Rollins swiped two bases each for the Sox, whose shallow pitching staff pitched pretty well but had nothing to show for it.

Norwich are just two games off the top after defeating the Angels 8-3. Rendon, McCutchen and Freeman helped take five offensive categories, while it was another monster week for the bullpen, with Britton saving four on his own. Hunter and Springer had multi-homer weeks for the Angels, while Kazmir struck out 15 and helped take ERA.

The Bananas handed Batteries Essential a 7-3 loss, coming a steal away from an offensive sweep. A pair of Nats – Werth (seven runs, two homers, nine RBIs) and Zimmerman (.524, six RBIs) – did most of the damage. McHugh struck out 12 and Gregerson had two holds. Batteries Essential had the benefit of more Lincecum magic, as Timmy’s two wins and stellar ERA and WHIP saw them salvage three categories.

Another matchup, another 7-3. This time it was the Knights who emerged victorious against Bits & Bytes, again a steal shy of an offensive sweep. The inspired pickup of Steve Pearce really paid off, as the Oriole hit two homers, drove in seven, stole two bases and hit .360. Gray and Haren each had a win and five strikeouts. Bits & Bytes had a seven-RBI week from Kendrick while Ziegler had two holds and Kershaw and Hernandez took ERA and WHIP for the umpteenth week in a row.

Despite being heavily behind early in the week, my Isotopes not only beat the Butchers 6-5 but went top in the process. The offense did all of the work with a sweep, as Cruz homered twice, scored five times and drove in five while hitting .345. Puig scored six times and the belated returns of Hanley (injury) and Machado (suspension) did help. Soriano’s save on Sunday proved vital to the win. The Butchers saw Richards, Price and Hahn combine for five wins and 49 strikeouts and Kalhoun homered twice.
