Round two of VEB's All-Time Sim Tournament started today and in one of the series that we're following here at TGOG, the 1888 Browns are taking on the 2004 Cardinals.
In game one, Silver King threw a two-hitter, allowed only four base runners, and at one point retired seventeen in a row as the Browns beat the Cards 4-0. That's what we call pitching a gem. And so much for the big bats of MV3, who went a collective 0-10 (although the Mighty Pujols did manage a walk).
You can check out the box score here and read a game summary here. Follow the tournament at Cardinal70's tournament site or, as always, at Viva El Birdos. The 1885, 1886, and 1888 Browns are all still alive and fighting for there place in St. Louis baseball history.
