But I think AftermathSports beat both of us....
 
4-3 Boston
 
14 Hits   15 K's
 
He was only 2 off on both tie breakers
 
I was 2 off on the hits and 3 off on the K's
 
You were 1 off on the hits and 6 off on the K's
 
I'm not sure how they'll grade it, but I'm guessing Aftermath gets it...

i assumed that they went by the first tiebreaker, and if it was still tied after that, they went to the second tiebreaker.
 
so because i was closest to the correct number of hits, i win the first tiebreaker and therefore get first place.
 
that's how every other contest i've ever played in goes, but maybe this one is different. so i'm thinking i got first, he gets second, and you get third.
 
however it works, still good picking boys.

Hey Guys,
 
First week where we've seen 3 people all pick the winning scores. Score was 4-3 Bo-Sox with 16 total hits and 17 strike outs.
Congratulations guys. Breakdown of winners is as follows:
 
1) Nolesy 4-3 Sox 15 Hits 11 Ks
2) AftermathSports 4-3 Sox 14 Hits 15 Ks
3) altheatholder 4-3 Sox 18 Hits 14 Ks
 
Everyone of the winners had the same score. So we move to the first tie breaker. Nolesy is 1 off which gives him first. AftermathSports is 2 off, but so is altheatholder. Thus, the second tie breaker is necessary to determine 2nd and 3rd place. 15 is the closest to 17, so AftermathSports takes 2nd place. altheatholder in 3rd.
 
So that's it for now. The winners will get an instructional e-mail at some point today. Please make sure your addys are up-to-date in your profile so I can reach you.
 
Cheers boys,
 
-Lou

Thanks Lou.
I'm kicking myself because I originally had 15 and 15 which would've won it but oh well. 2 off with each tiebreaker is as close as you can get without winning the whole thing. Good job to the winners.
