While it may seem like Jonathan Lucroy got a shaving cream pie from Shaun Marcum out of celebration, the real reason was that Marcum was upset after Lucroy's massive day ruined his predictions.
Two weeks remain in the first part of the season.
Back in Week 6, Kid19 pulled off his second weekly win in three weeks by taking a big lead, then using a low-scoring Twins series to keep himself in the lead. It was a blowout as the next two closest people (brewerspug and Mike2k33) were nine points behind in second place. Winning two of three weeks has helped Kid19 in the overall standings, where he has risen to sixth place and is in competition for a spot in the top three. In those standings, icecreamman maintained a double-digit lead over aaronetc, and with two weeks to go it is starting to look like he will win the first part of the season. Can aaronetc or someone else make a run over the last two weeks and challenge icecreamman? Let's see how these last two weeks play out.
Extra Prediction for the Series: Predict the total number of pitches thrown by both teams in the game. This is only official pitches, not warmup pitches, pickoff throws, or anything else that doesn't count towards a pitcher's official pitch count. If you are within 20 pitches of the actual total, you will get one point. If you are within 10 pitches, you will get two points. If you guess the number of pitches exactly, you will get four points.
