Team Romero took over the leaderboard in Week Two, achieving a 3-0 week of games. Led by their captain Sierra Romero, she had great game management skills and pushed her team to not only a perfect record but also win 18 out of the 21 innings they played for 330 total win points.

A staggering win point column combined with solid individual performances made Aleshia Ocasio and Bubba Nickles the biggest movers of Week Two.

Ocasio rose 35 spots to break into the top 10 at ninth overall on the leaderboard. She added a W to her win column on Saturday after throwing five scoreless innings. In Week Two she logged 72 total points on outs over the weekend without a run scored.

Another member of Romero’s orange squad, Nickles made a 33 spot jump up the rankings. She was 5-for-10 on the weekend highlighted by her walk-off double. The game-winner earned her MVP 1 votes for +60 and MVP 2 for + 40 on Saturday. She had a home run while scoring a pair of runs in their victory over Team Faraimo.
