Charlie Morton and Marcus Stroman each threw 7 innings of 2-hit shutout baseball before both ran out of endurance to bring in even higher rated PB 2-8 relievers for the final two innings.
The picture shows the Braves AJ Minter facing his first batter, the Cubs Cody Bellinger. We show the top of the first three cards in this matchup.
PB 9 - Minter failed to keep the ball in his PB 2-8 range.
RN 31 - the random number 31 falls in Bellinger's DEEP range of 27-31, meaning we refer to the ballpark chart which shows an 11-27 is a homer and a 28-88 is caught on a deep drive.
RN 27 - yes, you can come no closer as the last number in the 11-27 Wrigley Field home run range for a game winning homer.
In real MLB the Cubs fell one win short of the last wildcard spot, letting Arizona into the playoffs and then a stunning run to the World Series.
In our season it was Arizona missing the playoffs by one game and the Cubs making the same stunning wildcard run to the World series.
They face the Houston Astros, who also fell one game short in the real season as well - losing in Game 7 to the eventual champion Texas Rangers.
The first two games will be played by our Montana Commissioner at Houston, which hope the Statis-Pro Series repeats the real season with the champion from the state of Texas crushing the shocking wildcard NL team.
Here is the Cubs clinching win.
