Week 24 was the week of 4 splits and one sweep.
John’s team brought the lumber and swept Paul’s team by scores of 16-12, 5-1, 14-1, and 10-9. The last game was tied, 9-9 in the bottom of the 9th when Josh Bell doubled off of Kenley Jansen (3-4). Paul’s team brought in Sean Doolittle, but he promptly gave up a double to Alex Gordon to seal the sweep.
As a result, John now has a 2 game lead over Rich for first place, with Phil only 1 game out of playoff position. In the other division, Robert held a 4 game lead over Chris, with Dougald only 1 game out of playoff position.
