The real world Royals are up 2-0 against the Orioles in the ALCS, but our sim has the series tied. Meanwhile, the Giants took a 1-0 NLCS lead in real life but our Game 1 went to the Cardinals. See our first post about the LCS sims to see how we’ve set these up.
Game 2 of our NLCS sim saw the Giants even the series as they scored two runs against Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal to escape with a 3-2 victory. Rosenthal blew six saves during the regular season but had been perfect during the postseason until he fell apart in the ninth inning of this game.
