The Philly Pikachus fantasy baseball team dropped another series this past week, winning only 3 of 6 games against Dileep kumar’s team.
The Pikachus struggled to get their bats going, having only 30 runs, 23 RBIs and six home runs. Starling Marte led the lineup with six runs, four RBIs and two home runs. Mike Trout scored six runs, two RBIs and a homer.
On the mound, only Santiago Casilla picked up two wins. Jon Lester led the Pikachus with 10 strikeouts, followed by Scott Kazmir with seven.
The team will have to do some minor rotation in their lineup as Ben Zobrist is scheduled to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee while Hisashi Iwakuma continues to nurse a right lat strain. Iwakuma has done some very light throwing as well as strengthening exercises in recent days.
Despite the loss, the Pikachus are sitting comfortably in sixth place. They play 10th-ranked Jason K’s Crazy Team.
