Romney/Obama as Baseball: 18 October Update
In the bottom of the 6th, Fightin' Joe Biden came in to pinch hit for an exhausted David Axelrod. He made a lot of noise, fouled a lot of balls, and got the Romulans jeering that he was all talk, but finally managed to knock a soft base hit down over first baseman Paul Ryan's head to drive in the runner on second. Team Obama retook the lead, Obama 7 - Romney 6, then two strikeouts ended the inning.
In the top of the 7th, down a run with just a little time left to make it up, Team Romney has certainly resumed the position of the underdog... but it looks like Obama relief pitcher Steph Cutter is tiring out a lot faster than she should. Romney's boys get a base hit and a sacrifice fly to put a runner on second with one out here in the top of the 7th.
Team Obama will win this game 65% of the time. According to FiveThirtyEight.com, President Obama has the same probability of winning re-election.
