## June 29th, Dodgers vs Giants - Simulation

I used my simulator to simulate 100000 baseball games between the Dodgers and the Giants using what to the best of my knowledge will be close to today's starting lineups.  The simulator outputs a win probability for each team, along with the average total runs scored, a distribution matrix of all the final scores and how often they occurred, and an averaged box score tally of all games combined.  The simulator takes into account such things as defense, park factors, home field advantage, pitchers tiring and a proprietary set of hitter and pitcher projections that are calibrated on a daily basis.  There are many references to Vegas win probabilities.  This is just a measuring stick I use to determine how well my simulator does.  This by no means is meant as a tool to use to gamble on baseball games, it is more of an exercise in analyzing baseball games.  You may find it strange that there are so many one run games listed as the most likely score, and that the home team is always favored to win in the top couple of scores.  This is due to basic math and the way that baseball rules play out of having the home team bat last.  Here is a great article explaining this phenomenon.  Here are the latest Vegas MLB odds.

Today's Results... (Last simulation ran Tuesday at 12:05 AM)

Notes:  Vegas is a little more confident in a Giants win Tuesday than the simulator, as the Vegas crowd believes that Ely's magic has worn off.  Get your game score AND special "John Ely Day" over/under guesses in.  For an extra ten points, get all of the correct five over/under questions correct.

1. Pitches thrown: 92.5

2. Hit allowed: 5.5

3. Strikeouts: 4.5

4. Ely walks allowed minus total number of HRs in the game: 1.5

5. Ely ground balls allowed minus fly balls allowed: 1.5
