Wednesday morning, Daniel George of GameSided.com took some time to simulate Game 1 of the 2013 World Series between the St. Louis Cardinals and Boston Red Sox. So how true was it to form? Well, it seemed to predict some of Boston’s stats pretty well but not even a video game could see what would take place with Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright who was shellacked en route to the Cardinals loss.
Today, we’ll see if the Game 2 predictions will be more accurate as everybody’s favorite baseball video game is predicting a win for the Red Sox, giving them a 2-0 series advantage. Unfortunately, Michael Wacha (in his current form) wasn’t able to be found on the roster, so Shelby Miller was forced to take his spot in the simulation.
An early lead in the third inning for the Cardinals put them on the right track, though, uncharacteristically the St. Louis bullpen faltered in the slugfest, giving Boston the walk-off win in the bottom of the ninth inning.
