As the ALCS continues and the NLCS opens tonight, we’ve moved ahead in our simulation of the playoffs. Read the beginning of my original post to see how I set this up. (And if we don’t say so ourselves, our sim of the ALCS Game 1 wasn’t too far off from reality.)
Orioles’ 8-4 Win Evens the ALCS
The Baltimore Orioles put together a five-run eighth inning that turned a one-run deficit into an 8-4 victory in Game 2 of the ALCS, knotting it at a game apiece. Kansas City Royals starter Yordano Ventura pitched seven good enough innings — with four hits, three runs, and five walks allowed and four batters struck out — to hand the lead to the bullpen.
