We simulate the NL Wild Card Game – Cubs at Pirates

By on @pastapadre

Two NL Central rivals go head-to-head in the one-game Wild Card playoff for the right to advance and play the division winner and top seed St. Louis Cardinals.

On the mound for the Cubs is Cy Young contender Jake Arrieta (22-6, 1.77) and he’ll face the Pirates’ Gerrit Cole (19-8, 2.60). A pitcher’s duel would be a surprise to no one.

How does MLB 15: The Show expect the game to play out? Check out the video below for all the most relevant plays – the outs, hits, and walks – from the simulation completed in The Show!
