With a big home run from Evan Gattis, and a 30+ point performance from Lance Lynn on the mound, Swindaman3 posted a hearty effort that had him celebrating his first Gentleman’s Game Cup Series Victory.

Last night was a strange night on DraftKings and in Daily Fantasy Baseball if you decided to venture into the murky waters. In contrast to last week’s high-scoring affair, it seemed like a good lineup last night was simply breaking 100; as evidenced by the contestants in this great pantheon.

“I would rather win a Gentleman’s cup than climb Mt. Everest or finish a marathon,” Swindaman3 said after the hard-fought victory, which saw him edge out t3Bird04 by just over seven points.

The yearly standings see the top three players gridlocked in a tie for first place, while the group still waits for Jsquad34 to join the party.

Yearly Standings:
DStars45 – 14 points
Diamondhoggers – 14 points
t3bird04 – 14 Points
Swindaman3 – 11 Points
Jsquad34 – 7 Points

As for us, we went with highly-rated plays like Jose Abreu (he loves Friday evenings), Mookie Betts, and Kyle Seager. Plays that were regarded by wOBA metrics and Derek Carty and experts alike. This trio yielded two points.
