Pro Baseball Pick 'Em Contest Winner Announced

Patch user "mp" guessed that the teams would combined for 33 runs, two fewer than the actual total of 35.

Editor's note: Due to an oversight, the winner of this contest was incorrectly announced on Tuesday. We sincerely regret the error.

It shouldn’t be surprising that most entrants in did not give the batters enough credit in making their selections.

Milwaukee outscored Chicago 18-17 in the three-game series over the weekend, and few participants counted on 35 total runs from the teams battling for last place in the division.

By guessing the (Brewers 19, Cubs 14), Patch user "mp" was chosen to win the $100 gift card good for pro baseball apparel.

Thanks to everyone who participated. Enjoy the rest of the baseball season!

Hi William, The winner was selected among all submissions from the Chicagoland and Milwaukee area. Our sites can only link to other Patches in the immediate area, so not all of the submissions were visible on this site. You can find some of the other submissions at http://muskego.patch.com/articles/pro-baseball-pick-em-contest-winner-announced and http://evanston.patch.com/articles/contest-guess-scoring-outcome-in-milwaukee-chicago-series-to-win-100-gift-card-83093a42#pdf-9650046 The original winner was named based on a random drawing. However, we learned that there was a correction made this week to the winner, as one of the Wisconsin contestants actually guessed 33 runs. This story has been updated to reflect that. Thanks for playing. And, as they say, there's always next year!
