Cardinals @ Reds 5/15 Super Sim

Well I thought I would try something new, just for the fun of it and to see how these things actually hold up, so I popped MLB 2K10 into the Xbox and just simulated tonight's game with the starting pitchers and default batting orders, it looks something like this:

Cardinals

2B Skip Schumaker
RF Ryan Ludwick
1B Albert Pujols
LF Matt Holliday
CF Colby Rasmus
Yadier Molina
3B David Freese
SS Brendan Ryan
Adam Wainwright

Reds

SS Orlando Cabrera
2B Brandon Phillips
1B Joey Votto
3B Scott Rolen
RF Jay Bruce
LF Jonny Gomes
CF Drew Stubbs
Ramon Hernandez
Mike Leake

The super sim has the Reds winning this one 7-6 on a walkoff home run in the 9th by Scott Rolen. Interesting stats to note, both starting pitchers only went 5 and a third innings, Leake giving up all 6 runs, 5 earned before being replaced by Mike Lincoln for two innings. Wainwright was battered for 12 hits and 5 earned while striking out 6. Trever Miller then came in and pitched two scoreless, and then Ryan Franklin got the last two out in the 8th before serving one up to Rolen to end it to lead off the 9th.

As far as the hitters stats, for the Cardinals Yadier Molina was the offensive star, going 2 for 5 with 2 home runs and 4 RBI, and the only Cardinal to collect multiple hits. On the Reds side of things, Rolen and Hernandez both had 5 hit games, Rolen with 3 RBI and Hernandez with 2 RBI.

Again it's just a for fun simulation thing, so we'll see how it turns out, but interesting nonetheless to keep an eye on how well they compare. My gut tells me it's going to be nothing like that, as I really think both starting pitchers are better than that.

So long for now, feel free to add any questions or comments.
