July 10, 1934 - 1934 MLB All-Star Game - Strat-o-matic Baseball

This was the second all-star game. It ended in a 9-7 American League victory. The game was made famous for Carl Hubbell's feat of striking out 5 consecutive future Hall-of-Famers (Ruth, Gehrig, Foxx, Simmons, and Cronin). I knew it would be unfair to expect Hubbell to do it again for me on my tabletop, but I thought I'd give him a shot anyway!

Replay

Hubbell held the American Leaguers scoreless in the first two innings, although he did not record a strikeout. The National League got on the board first in the bottom half of the 2nd inning. Boston Brave Wally Berger led off with a walk off the Yankee's Lefty Gomez. He moved to second on a wild pitch and came home when the Giants' Travis Jackson tripled to deep center field. Jackson sprinted home on Gabby Hartnett's grounder to short and the NL led 2-0 after two.

That score stood through 6 innings, as both Gomez and Hubbell were pitching great games. In the top of the 7th, the AL finally got going. With one out, the Senators' Joe Cronin singled and came home when Yankee Bill Dickey followed with a triple. Dickey was a little too zealous on the bases, however, as he was thrown out at home by the drawn-in Frankie Frisch. Yankee Ben Chapman came around to score on Frisch's error later in the inning to tie the score at 2-2.

In their half of the 7th, the NL retook the lead off the new AL pitcher, Cleveland's Mel Harder. With one out, Hartnett singled. Pinch hitter Mel Ott walked and then Frisch followed with an RBI single. After Pepper Martin lined to Jimmy Foxx at third, Ducky Medwich lined a base hit, scoring Ott with the fourth NL run.

The NL would get another run in the bottom of the 8th as Berger trotted home on a sac fly off the bat of Hartnett.

With the score 5-1, the AL came up in the 9th against NL reliever Dizzy Dean. Cronin bounced out to Dean, but Dickey followed with a double (his second extra-base hit of the day). After Earl Averill's singled moved him to third, Dickey scored on Charlie Gehringer's fly out to center. Heinie Manush lined out to Frisch at second, though, to end the AL rally and the game.

American League 3 7 1
National League 5 9 1

WP - Hubbell 7 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 K, 4 BB

October 21, 1976 - Boston Celtics vs. Indiana Pacers - First NBA Game with Merged "ABA" Team - Real Life Basketball Classic

The ABA and NBA merged in after their respective seasons in 1976, with 4 ABA teams (Indiana, San Antonio, Denver, and New York Nets) joining the NBA for the start of the 1976-77 season. To welcome the ABA teams, the NBA scheduled the NBA champion Boston Celtics to open their season against the former-ABA's Indiana Pacers. The game went into overtime after the Celtics came back from a 9-point deficit through 3 quarters. In the overtime period, Boston outscored Indiana 16-7 to take a hard-fought 129-122 victory. Certainly, the Pacers performed as a team ready and able to compete among the best of the NBA.

Replay

My tabletop Pacers outperformed their real-life counterparts and stunned the Boston Celtics, 115-100. The game was tied at 80-80 after 3 quarters, but the Pacers just blew out the Celtics in the 4th quarter behind Don Buse (16 points, 10 in the 4th Q) and Billy Knight (team-high 28 pts, 7 in 4th Q). For the Celtics, Charlie Scott gave a valiant effort with a game-high 32 points, including 10 in the 4th quarter when Boston's offense was otherwise struggling. The Celtics offensive problems late in the game were exacerbated when John Havlicek fouled out early in the 4th and the bench could not compensate. Indiana's bench out-scored Boston's 46-13.

JoJo White contributed 22 points for the Celtics in the lost cause. Dave Robisch came off the bench to pour in 20 for the Pacers.

Boston 20 31 29 20 100
Indiana 31 26 23 35 115
