Simulating The Pine Tar Game

34 years ago yesterday George Brett took Goose Gossage deep in Yankee Stadium only to be called out a couple minutes later for having too much pine tar on his bat. The Royals protested the game and won and came back to Yankee Stadium in August and finished off the Yanks for the victory. I decided to use Out of the Park Baseball to simulate the 1983 season right up to July 24th and manage the Royals against those Yankees.

 Below is a video of the simulated game. Below the video is the write up and box score of the game.




 Yankees Bridle Royals, 4-2 

The New York Yankees picked up a win at Yankee Stadium, knocking off the Kansas City Royals, 4-2. On the mound for New York was left-hander Shane Rawley, who played a pivotal role in the win. Rawley picked up the win for New York, going 8 innings. He gave up 2 runs on 7 hits. He now sports a record of 5-11. Rich Gossage got the save, his 22nd in 26 chances.

 The outcome was still in doubt with two out in the top of the eighth inning, but Rawley was able to pitch out of a jam. With a runner on 1st and Kansas City trailing 3-2, Rawley retired Amos Otis, who flied out. Today's win puts New York at 46-47, while Kansas City falls to 29-61.
