Ivan Rodriguez Wins the Home Run Derby & the NL Nips the al 8-6 in a Closely Fought All-Star Game on MLB™ 2006 For PlayStation®2
Company: S.C.E.E.
The National League will snap an eight-year winless streak at the 76th annual Major League Baseball All-Star game as predicted by a precise simulation on MLB™ 2006 for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system. The squad of National League all-stars combined speed on the bases and a prolific 4th inning to pound out an 8-6 victory. Albert Pujols took home the MVP honors after a flawless effort against the best pitchers in
the league. Pujols hit a two-run shot in the 4th and added a 2-run double in the 7th to finish the game two for two with 4 RBI. As it stands, in
reality, the NL holds a 41-32-2 edge in the 76-year-old tradition, but from the results of the MLB 2006 simulation on PlayStation 2, they look poised
to make it 42 victories overall.

In MLB 2006’s Home Run Derby simulation, Ivan Rodriguez, the local favorite, rode home field advantage to a much-celebrated victory. He blasted 9 homeruns in the final round, out slugging all competitors, to the riotous cheers from the fans in an exquisitely detailed recreation of Comerica Park. David Ortiz had the longest shot of the day, making PlayStation 2 highlight reels as he blasted a pitch 465 feet into right field.

The 2005 All-Star Game and Home Run Derby were simulated by utilizing the Artificial Intelligence (AI) in MLB 2006, exclusively for the PlayStation 2
computer entertainment system.
