We finally had a break from work for the first doubleheader in a while. The next matchup was between the two teams that are in the real MLB playoffs but not in the Statis-Pro playoffs.
Amazing - of the 9 teams in our league, in the real MLB season all are either in the playoffs or within 1 1-2 games of the playoffs if the season ended today. The two differences are the Cubs and Phillies would be in the real playoffs while in our game they would be replaced by the Giants and Marlins.
JT Realmuto homered 3 times in the two games to help beat the Cubs 9-1 and then in a thrilling 5-4 come from. Behind win On the 2-run homer by Darick Hall pictured below on the 25 random number in his 22-26 home run range.
The Phillies are still digging out of an early season Statis-Pro hole, but they catch the Fire be at 24-30 (keep in mind records are better because the teams do not play as many games against the six relegated teams while they must play each of the other eight teams in our game in a series).
Relegated teams 67-89
