Rookie Andrew Dilz (first nomination) has found himself in a playoff race all of a sudden with Chuggin Chorizos after two big wins, thanks to his pitching and hitting. Dilz batted .533 on the day with an OPS of 1.333 (top of the league for the week), including 4 doubles and a walk off RBI against the Twits. He also pitched 18 innings on the day, giving up 1 run and striking out 18. Not bad!
Our first of many pitchers again this week, Matt Dreyfus (9 nominations, 1 win) doesn’t usually pitch, but maybe he should. In one game against SacBunt, Dreyfus threw a perfect game, striking out 4. He hit .300 on the day, with an RBI.
Chris Keevan (6 nomination, 0 wins) has had to fill the big shoes left by Joe Thaman this year, and has been doing well so far, only giving up 3 runs so far all year. This week, Keevan pitched a perfect game against Dupont Circle Jerks. On the day, Keevan had a 0.00 ERA, gave up 3 hits in 11.5 IP, 0 runs, and 9 strikeouts. He also batted .308 with a homerun and 2 RBIs.
Jeffrey Nitto (5 nominations, 2 wins) missed a few games early on in the season, but has come back nicely for the Gumballers. This week, Nitto perfecto’d DC Twits. In 12 IP, Nitto gave up 1 hit, 0 runs, and struck-out 8. He didn’t have the best day at the plate, only going 1 for 11 (.091).
If you missed it, there was a lot of “trash talk” going on with Suns Out and Moose this past week, so make sure to circle your calendars for June 8th at 3:30p when they play each other. This week though, Chris Mazur took to the mound and threw a no hitter against Besley Bashers ( there was 1 error ). On the day, Mazur pitched 10 innings, allowed 1 unearned run, had 8 strikeouts, and batted .333.
