Opening Day Baseball: MLB 2K11 vs. MLB 11: The Show

Hot summer air, the roar of crowds, the scent of a searing hot dog. I truly love Opening Day for Major League Baseball. Granted, I'm spending it locked inside our hermetically sealed (and air-conditioned) G4 offices, but I'd rather be stuck out in the bleacher getting sunburned and eating food that is terrible for me while washing it down with extremely overpriced beer. So we decided to replicate all of that, except without the beer, thanks to MLB 11: The Show, and MLB 2K11.

To honor baseball's starting day, we've taken our hometown team, the Los Angeles Dodgers, and pitted them against their opening day opponent, the San Francisco Giants. They play for real in just a couple of hours, but we decided to let 2K and Sony simluate everything for us.

Today will mark the 10th time that the Giants and the Dodgers have faced off on opening day in real life since both teams moved to California, and it's a rivalry that has deep roots in the world of baseball. The Giants are the reigning World Series Champs, while the Dodgers haven't won a championship in 22 years. But that doesn't mean you can take this matchup for granted. Hit the break to see how the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox scored the games, then find out what happens tonight

MLB 2K11 has the Giants besting the Dodgers, with the Dodgers taking an early lead thanks to a 4th inning that nearly doesn't stop, and eventually coming out on top of the World Champions 13 to 1. Ted Lilly pitches a valiant one-run game, while the Giants bullpen comes under non-stop attack and they never get anything going either on the mound or at the plate.

On the flipside, MLB 11: The Show has a much closer matchup with a heartbreaker of an ending. Despite a late-game rally and pulling themselves back to within three points of a tie, Andre Ethier of the Dodger hits into an easy toss-out to first base with bases loaded, killing a potential win.
 
 
Wondering how the entire season plays out? We took care of that for you as well. You know, in case you're just way too impatient to wait through an entire baseball season.

Not bad on either side, considering that most sports experts are picking Boston and Philadelphia as two of the powerhouse teams for this season. How will it actually play out? We'll have to wait and see and then remember to check this post in the fall. But for now, Go Blue!
