Nicktoons MLB: Rangers Will Take The World Series Title

by Jeff Cork on Oct 26, 2011 at 05:13 AM

If you're in the sports-game business, chances are you're going to run some simulations on real-world contests to see who'll win. Just because 2K Play's MLB game happens to include the likes of SpongeBob SquarePants, ZIM, and Stimpy, it doesn't preclude the company from making a prediction. If you're a betting man, call your bookie now: according to their Nicktoons MLB simulation, the Rangers are going to win.

According to 2K Play, the game will end 6 to 5 in game 6, with the Texas Rangers taking the Commissioner's Trophy. Here are some of the hard-hitting highlights:

Cardinals' CF Jon Jay hit a frozen rope and legged out a triple for the first hit of the game in the 2nd inning and later scored.

In the 4th inning, Albert Pujols mashed a two-run homer off SpongeBob for a 3-0 St. Louis lead.

Rangers' slugger Mike Napoli drove Stimpy's stinkball into the gap, scoring ZIM in the 5th.

Michael Young slid under the tag attempt of Aang in the 6th, later scoring to take the lead.

Katara went down swinging with the bases loaded as catcher Yadier Molina called for a fastball to end the Rangers' threat.

In the bottom of the 9th, Adrian Beltre's miraculous two-out diving catch strands Patrick Star on third base and secures the Rangers' first-ever World Series!


How exciting! Congratulations, Rangers, victory is as good as yours.
