Game of the Week Review:
The two top powers of the SC battled it out this week, STP-SF, finishing in exciting fashion. The Apostles managed to pull off a victory with some late magic from from Nick Bondi and Marvin Bakers back-to-back triples in the 9th. Julio Barajas made short work of the Peanuts in the bottom of the 9th for his 2nd win of the season. After the split SF maintains their winning record against STP, 5-3, while also maintaining a 1 game lead in the SC. If the two teams stay this close as the season progresses the edge that SF has on STP could play a crucial role in playoff matchups.
Most Improved Player:
NOLA 3B Kenny Blake
OC ST Jorge Lopez
Biggest injuries this week are a couple short term ones in HOU Brian Taylor and DET Zachery Wiss going down for just a few weeks.
