We cursed incredible Rockies reliever with the piece we did yesterday. He came into a 5-5 tie to face the No. 9 hitters in the Marlins line-up.
Bard's PB 2-8 meant he would keep it on his card if 26 of 36 combinations (dice rolls or in our game fast action card range) but the result was a 10 to leave the card on Nick Fortes card.
The random number was the a 25, the only clean home run number of 64 numbers from 11-88. Fortes home run range is 25-26, but Rockies pitchers turn the highest home run number is change to a fly out, so 25 was the only chance.
If a 27-31 had come up for a deep drive it would have almost certainly been a homer since the subsequent number would have been a homer in 11-77 and only out would have been 78-88. But 25 was the only clear homer.
The surprising Marlins held on for the 6-5 win, then won the nightcap back in Miami 5-3. Every team has now played in our Statis-Pro season except the Washington Nationals.
Below is the picture of the fateful home run flip, followed by both scoresheets.
