August 30th, Dodgers Simulation

I used my simulator to simulate 25000 baseball games between the Reds and Dodgers 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.

Today's Results... (Last updated at 9:05AM pdt, with correct lineups)
