I replayed this game tonight, using Payoff Pitch Baseball, the only system where I have the 1977 season.
August 29, 1977: White Sox @ Indians, Cleveland Stadium
Final from Cleveland Stadium:
It didn’t quite turn out the same way, no home run by Duane Kuiper, but still a win for Rick Waits and the Indians.
I rerolled Kuiper’s first at-bat about 50 times, just to see if I could get the right combo (4 on 2d6 from the pitcher’s card, followed by 1-3 on d100 from the batter’s card) but it never rolled that way.
Congratulations on the 40th anniversary of the one career home run, Duane Kuiper. That’s one more than I’ll ever hit in my lifetime.
The Giants took an early lead and knocked Gooden out of the game. The Mets countered with a George Foster grand slam, knocking Krukow out and taking the lead, but the Giants rallied for 2 in the bottom of the 7th and got the win.
Next opponent: Gooden vs. Hawkins @ Jack Murphy Stadium
