Philadelphia-Houston playoff game, 2005

Last updated: October 12, 2005

The last weekend of the 2005 season featured a tight race for the NL wild card. Philadelphia won its last four but was left out of the postseason parade when Houston took care of business. The folks at the Philadelphia Daily News wondered how a playoff game might have turned out had Houston dropped one of its weekend games to fall into a tie, and we were more than happy to help out.

We set up the rosters using the stats for the 2005 season, set up the fatigue information by entering the number of pitches thrown in recent games by the pitchers on both teams, and played the game once. The paper ran a game story in the October 4th edition, but they didn't have room for the boxscore and play-by-play. Here's how the game turned out:
