Around the League: Period 18 Recap
Photo by USATSIAlbert Pujols hadn’t had a big game in the batting average category since week nine’s .438 BA performance. This week finally brought about another big effort. The Machine batted .529 while leading DEADWOODS to a .267 BA overall. His batting average performance this week stopped his six week streak of not meeting the league average in that category. Nevertheless, DEADWOODS stayed in 10th place in the batting average standings, .001 BA behind SPACE COWBOYS. DEADWOODS fell from 6th to 7th in the overall rankings.
Producing the Goods
Photo by USATSIDEADZONES had a great week in the home runs department, cranking out 17 of them. Teoscar Hernandez and George Springer were the key contributors, launching 4 HRs each. Springer rocked back-to-back home runs Monday, including this one on top of the rock pile, before hitting two more on back-to-back days later in the week. DEADZONES moved up the HRs standings for the 2nd straight week, going from 4th to 3rd.
Colt 45s‘ pitchers struck gold this week, but their batters struck out. They finished in first for the week in ERA by putting up a 2.75 ERA, while coming in 2nd in wins. The other half of Colt 45s’ roster came in dead last this week in batting average and home runs with a .214 BA and 4 HRs.
The 5th week of the season found SCHNOOKERS in 3rd place in the WHIP standings. Since then things have been…not so good. Their 1.79 WHIP this week caused them to drop two spots into 11th place. Coach Schneller can look to Trent Thornton and Andrew Heaney when passing out blame for the poor performance. The two combined to record a 2.65 WHIP in 8 and 2/3 innings.
Out to Lunch
SKINS’s bad season got a whole lot worse this week. They fell in behind all other teams, earning only 35.5 category points. SKINS wound up in last place for the week in RBIs and wins by putting up 24 RBIs and 1 win, and also finished 10th in batting average and home runs. They stayed in 10th place in the overall standings this week.
