Life is Sport Games

This is game 2 of a replay of the 1st World Series ever. All 3 games were played in New York. It featured the NL champion Providence Grays vs the AA champion New York Metropolitans. Logos displayed in the replay were created by Pete Manzolillo of Jet Signs of Long Island, and are used with his permission. This replay was done using Pine Tar-1884. The 1884 season has not been released yet but is in development. The project is being funded through Kickstarter. If interested, you can see the Pine Tar Baseball campaign here. 

While I have "finished" the Grays and Metropolitans, the players error ratings will be tweaked slightly before release. This play test and those done by others will help fine tune the season set.

GAME SUMMARYNew York jumped ahead scoring twice in the 3rd. After Roseman walked with 2 outs, Esterbrook hit an RBI double. Orr then drove in Esterbrook with a single to center. The Grays answered with 3 runs in the top half of the 4th. They had 3 hits in the inning and Keefe walked 2 batters, both of whom came around to score. The Metropolitans tied the game in the bottom of the 5th. Nelson led off and reached on an error by Denny. With 1 out, Esterbrook's single putting runners on the corners. Orr followed with an RBI single to right and Troy worked a walk to load the bases. Radbourn then struck out both Brady and Holbert to strand the bases loaded and end the threat.

The Grays would get the decisive runs in their half of the 7th. After 3 consecutive hits, the 3rd by Hines scoring Gilligan, Irwin lifted a sac fly to right to give the Grays a 5 to 3 lead. The Grays tacked on 1 more in the top of the 8th making the final score 6 to 3 Grays.
