I reached pennant race in 30 minutes...

Usually, I'm just a guy that sits around until the last few days of the season to make it to pennant race and sell the rewards. However, I decided to change things a bit this time around and try to make it on the first day. Here's what happened.

Game 1
I had Hal on the mound, my opponent was starting Paxton. As I hadn't faced Paxton that much, I struggled, and so did my opponent against Hal. We went into the fifth inning, still tied up at 0. My leadoff hitter, Tatis comes up and hits a ball I squared up pretty well to the center field warning track. One out. Up is Mantle. He destorys a 98 mph fastball from Paxton, and sends it out. The guy quits.

Game 2
My starter for this one was Paxton, who I was doing ok with. Opponent had 97 Greinke, who I hadn't faced before at all and didn't know how he pitched. I somehow put up 6 runs in the first(including a rbi single for Paxton). Opponent bunt dances down by 6, and I strike out the side. He quits as well.

Game 3
I had Kluber starting for this one, opponent was using Marichal. I score the first run on a typical dinger with Hornsby. Yep, the guy quits.

So, that's how I made it into pennant race in 30 minutes.

It's the little victories that help. Nice work, dude!

Don't get me wrong, I like the free wins, but it does irrigate me when your pitchers energy does down, and you don't even play a 3 inning game, because your opponent quits. They should fix that in next years game.

I get your point but you do get credit for a win and get the ranking increase so some pitcher fatigue is a small price to pay for that. Plus time saved you can spend on the next game.

And bullpen isn't even touched. Fresh arms in the BP is very valuable.

Typically takes me about 30 days.
