Arozarena Continues Hot October With Three Homers, Five RBI, .320 Average, Named MVP As Rays Take First Title

GLEN HEAD, N.Y. - eTradeWire -- Randy Arozarena (.320, 3 HR, 5 RBI), Joey Wendle (.348, 4 runs scored), Brandon Lowe (2 home runs, 5 RBI), and the tandem of Nick Anderson and Diego Castillo (10.1 IP, 0 runs, 15 K) helped Tampa Bay to a win over Los Angeles, four games to two, as Strat-O-Matic (www.strat-o-matic.com), the leader in sports simulation games, announced the results of its simulation of the series, scheduled to begin tonight in Arlington, Texas.

Arozarena earned MVP honors, homering in games 1, 2, and 5, to back the solid Tampa Bay pitching staff which limited Los Angeles to a .187 batting average through the series. Mike Zunino's two-run home run in the seventh extended a 5-2 TB lead to put the game out of reach and secure Tampa Bay's first championship in franchise history.

Los Angeles was paced by AJ Pollock (.333 batting average), Mookie Betts (.280, 5 runs) and Justin Turner (home run, 4 runs, 4 RBI).

"Fans across the country learned who Randy Arozarena was this October, and that translated well to our World Series simulation," said Hal Richman, Strat-O-Matic President. "Tampa Bay's team has been strong in our other simulations this year, so it's not too surprising to us that the American League's best team won it all."

About Strat-O-Matic

Strat-O-Matic was invented by 11-year-old Hal Richman in his bedroom in Great Neck, N.Y. in 1948 as a result of his frustration with the statistical randomness of other baseball board games. He discovered that the statistical predictability of dice would give his game the realism he craved. Over the next decade, he perfected the game at summer camp and then as a student at Bucknell University. After producing All-Star sets in 1961 and '62, he parlayed a $5,000 loan from his father (and made a deal that if it didn't work out he would work for his father's insurance company) into the original 1962 Strat-O-Matic Baseball season game.
