MLB All-Star Game Results as Predicted by MLB 11 The Show
Do you love baseball but can’t stand how “real” it is? Then MLB 11 The Show’s simulation of the 2011 MLB All-Star Game is just what you need. Instead of watching the best baseball has to offer take the field tonight, watch all the digital highlights right here!
If you’re more of a reader than a visual person, here’s a brief synopsis of the highlights from the simulated version of a real game that will take place tonight:
After falling short in the Home Run Derby the night before, Boston’s Adrian Gonzalez starts the scoring for the American league with an RBI single. The National League quickly responded with a couple runs of their own of a base knock from Los Angeles Dodgers slugger Matt Kemp and a solo home run from Milwaukee Brewers star Ryan Braun. The NL continued widening the gap thanks to a bases loaded double from Troy Tulowitski of the Colorado Rockies, but the AL began mounting their comeback soon after with small ball runs from Asdrubal Cabrera and Michael Young. Despite having tying runs on base in the final two innings, the AL left the game on the bases and fell to the hands of the NL pitching staff, led by Atlanta’s Jonny Venters who scored the winning decision.
Are you still with me, readers? Did you get your fill of fake baseball for the day? Good, now go watch the actual game because that determines home field advantage in the World Series. As an aside to Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig, consider having MLB players play one another in a simulation of the All-Star Game on MLB 11 The Show and having that decide who grabs home field for the October Classic. Just think about it.
