It was another eventful week for Prognostikeggers.

Saturday ended up being a big day for several people. Not only did the Brewers win big, but it was an unprecedented day for Prognostikeggers. Ten bonuses were hit that day, the most ever hit in a day. Also, not only did we have the first ever five point bonus hit, but two of them were hit in the same day. Vandecm called for a six-run inning, which only happened a couple of times last season and was good for five points. Also, molitorfan made a prediction of two triples, which the Brewers only accomplished once last season and was also worth five points. Not surprisingly, both ended up in the top ten for the week.

When the dust from the week cleared, two emerged on top of the standings. MichaelE1 finished strong this week after losing on the last day last week to get his first weekly win. Joining him is vandecm, who used three five-point days to tie for the lead. Right behind them was icecreamman and jcollins205, who just finished short of getting the win. In the overall standings, two weeks in the top three has given Michael E1 a seven point lead. After him, icecreamman has a solid hold on second place for now, followed by dvtpz in third place. There's still six weeks to go in the first third of the series, so don't give up yet.

Extra Prediction for the Series: Just as teams obsess about pitch counts, you will do the same for this 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.
