NLCS Game 2, PS3 Style

9 Oct

nlcs.jpgAccording the expert analysis provided by The Max’s PS3, the Phillies took Game 1 of the NLCS by a score of 14-3. Because we know you will probably be stuck in traffic while Game 2 is underway, we have simulated this matchup as well. Now, you can drive home from work listening to Mike Francesa already knowing the outcome of the game. Here goes:

 

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Dodgers 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 0 0 3 10 0
Phillies 0 0 0 1 1 0 1 0 1 4 11 0

Phillies lead series 2-0

W – Gordon, 1 IP, 2 Hits, O Runs, 2 K
L – Proctor, 0.2 IP, 2 Hits, 1 Run, 1 ER, 2 K

HR: None

Dodgers
Blake: 3-4, 1 Run, 2 RBI
Loney: 3-4, 1 Run
Ramirez: 0-3, 1 BB

Phillies
Howard: 2-4, 1 Run, 1 RBI, 2 K
Victorino 2-5, 1 Run, 1 RBI, 1 K
Werth: 2-3, 1 RBI, 1 BB

Both teams got strong performances out of their starters (Billingsley and Myers). But in the end, it was Torre using Proctor on back-to-back days (again) that cost the Dodgers.

So there you have it. The computer overlooked Burrell’s huge game at the plate and gave player of the game honors to Rollins. Enjoy watching your girl drool over McDreamy.
