HOMERUN KINGZ THROTTLE CHAMPIONSHIP 13-1!
The Homerun Kingz were true to their name as they demolished the Championship with 11 HR's. The carnage was led by OF Mike Trout who crushed 3 HR's and scored a whopping 13 runs on a .452 Avg. It was a stellar week for the Kingz as their pitching staff struck out 108 batters in the week as well. Of course this week was a few days longer because of the All-Star break but still the Homerun Kingz have put the league on notice. The team that was in last place 6 weeks ago has jumped to 3rd in the standings. Meanwhile the Championship has suffered their 2nd blowout in the last 3 weeks. But don't feel sorry for the Championship as they have delivered many blowouts to their opponents this year.
CALIFORNIA BEARS HOLD OFF GREEN SMOKERS 8-6!
The California Bears used their balance attack to down the Green Smokers. The Green Smokers aren't smoking anymore as they have dropped 3 of their last 4 or maybe they are smoking and that's their problem. Who knows. We do know that the California Bears Catcher Buster Posey went off with 13 RBI's and batted .486 to lead his to victory. We also know that Bears Pitchers Lance Lynn and Aroldis Chapman each fanned 15 batters this week. Stephen Strasburg wasn't bad either contributing 12 K's for the win. The Bears are looking to lock down a Playoff spot as we enter the crunch time.
ALWAYS 2ND PLACE DEFEATS BLUE CRUSHERS TO END SKID!
Always 2nd Place had lost 4 of their last 5 games. This victory over the Blue Crushers helped stopped the skid as Always 2nd Place has gone from contender to also ran while sliding down the standings. OF Andrew McCutchen has taken the team and put them on his shoulders. McCutchen blasted 4 HR's and batted .457 in leading the team to victory. The loss ended the Crushers 3 game winning streak.
TSSAJOS DROPS THE BOOM ON THE FIREBALLS 9-3!
In a game that was closer than the score indicated, Tssajos dropped the bomb on the Fireballs literally. Tssajos blasted 23 HR's in a barrage of HR's with runners on base. That proved too much for the Fireballs who have suddenly been bitten by the injury bug. David Ortiz is now on the DL joining Giancarlo Stanton. The lack of power doomed the Fireballs as they have fallen back to a familiar place...the cellar. The Fireballs will need to start winning consistently to have any chance of making the Playoffs. The Tssajos Ryan Zimmerman crushed 6 HR's and 10 RBI's to lead the assault. 1B Miguel Cabrera sent 5 HR's into the stands as Tssajos starts to make their move up the standings.
