3 = credited for 3 games to none sweep for winning and being ahead by 5+ after 8 without using closer based on my study in the link below showing a team has a 14% chance of a 3-game sweep OR a 5-run win.
In all other games, winner credited for 2 wins and loser gets credit for 1 win (team just as likely to win by 5 runs as to sweep 3-game series)

Percent Sweep so far in Statis-Pro: 6 of 32 games or 19%
All 2-game series, and each team must throw 1st & 4th best starters or 2nd & 3rd
Suarez third hit of the game was a 2-run GW 2b in 9th off Hader
In 10th inning, Cain's 4th hit was Game Winner. Aguilar 3-run 3b and 2-run HR.
Archer threw CG shutout among all the slugfests to outduel Flaherty
Incredible Dominican Republic 1-2 punch of Starling Marte and Greg Polanco led them to the my International championship and dominated StL by combining to score 7 of the Pitt 12 runs.
deGrom's 2-hitter almost wasted, but new Mets Rajan Davis pinch ran, stole 2b, to 3b on bunt, score to tie game on Rosario single, then he stole, balked to 3rd and scored GW on Cano SF. New closer Diaz perfect 9th for Sv in 2-1 win.
After 2 PB2-9 pitchers in 1st game, Belt and Posey jumped on Wheeler for back-to-back 1st inn HRs and returned favor with 2-1 win.
Freeman's game-tying homer in the top of the 9th was spoiled when Winkler allowed doubles to the Padres Renfroe and Pirela.
Newly acquired Donaldson singled to start a 5-run 9th and McCann drove in one of the runs to blow open a 2-1 lead - however the Braves did not get credit for a three games to none sweep because the new rules for this year required you are ahead by at least 5 runs after 8 innings.
PH V. Robles 9th inning HPB only 2nd baserunner off Scherzer, then M. Prado 2-out homer made J. Miller come in for 1-out save and 6-2 win. With Bryce Harper gone, Difo's GS HR helped give Was sweep (must be up 5 at end of 8th without using closer, and hold on for win).
Nats 12 hits (5 2bs, HR) gave them 5-0 going to bottom of 8th with chance at 6 games to 0 sweep, but normally clutch SS Difo (CD4) could not come up with smash off one remaining Miami star Realmuto's line drive to cut lead to 5-1 after 8. G. Cooper's 2-run homer in bottom of 9th pulled Miami within 5-3 and chased closer Rosenthal, but Nats held on to get credit for 2 games to 1 win and 5 games to 1 for series.
Having 5 top Rockies players being left-handed does kill their line-up against a great PB2-8 lefty like Robbie Ray, who finished 7 innings in a 1-0 opening win for the Dbacks playing thier 1st game without Goldschmidt. Peralta double in K Marte for the final margin after just 2 batters.
Jake Lamb became the first in my history of playing to hit homers in three straight at bats, the final being an 8th inning grandslam to give the Diamondbacks a 12-2 lead en route to a 12-4 win that counts as a 3-game sweep. We make all the fields "neutral" so their was no batters edge to Colorado being the home team, and the Rockies pitching is decent since we make their ERAs park neutral, bu having the two No. 4 starters in action yielded a lot more runs than the operner of aces and let the Dbacks take first in the NL West as the Dodgers wait to try to get Bryce Harper before playing.
In match-up of strong No. 2 starters (PB2-8 as top 15% of all projected ERAs which is rare for starters) Syndergaard won with 6 innings and 2 runs allowed while Alonso had 3 hits and Ramos a 2-run triple and 1-run double for 8-4 Mets win.
Mets' addition of Cano helping them win, BUT we do play with Cespedes back in lineup with is questionable with his injury from last season. He hit walk off homer to lead of 10th for the 6-5 extra inning win to cap a 4 for 4 that also including an RBI-triple over the Bryce Harper-less Nats.
Brewers Cain-Yelich-Braun top of order combined for 8 runs scored in 11-6 run, including 3 homers, double, 3 singles and 2 walks drawn. Still Bader's third hit of game put tying run on deck in bottom of 8th, and Knebel came in to induce double play and then 1-2-3 for save after a Braun homer in between.
Cards acquisition of ace reliever Andrew Miller dueled with Hader into extra innings, and with both extending the Cards pulled off the 4-3 win in 10 innings to split the series.
Pirates 2 leadoff Dominican hitters (S. Marte & Polanco) stayed hot with doubles, and Korean Kang stayed hottest of all going back to my International season with another homer and three top relievers wrapped up the 3-1 win.
Ex-Astros World Series star Musgrove went 7 shut out innings to give Pirates chance at the 5-run sweep for 5-0 lead, but with bullpen tired from 1st game allowed Reds to rally to tie 5-5 in the 9th and pinch runner Ervin tired to score game-winner from first on a double only to be thrown out by T5 Marte. Pirates eventually did win in 12 innings due to consecutive errors on left side of infield from 3b Suerez and SS Peraza.
Gausman's complete game shutout (a rarity in modern baseball) was helped by Inciarte (T5 best throwing arm) gunning out very fast pinchrunner Galloway (OBR A is fastest) trying to go 1st to hom in the 8th. Inciarte also drove in 1st run in 7th on a G3-1 after a sac fly enabling Braves to score without a hit, and then add one on Freeman single in 8th for 2-0 final.
Braves trailed 3-0 until 8th when Albies, Freeman & Swanson homered for 4-3 win. Donaldson (Clutch Defense CD 4 is best defense except for a few gold glove winners) as he grabbed a would be hit and tagged runner trying to go 2nd and 3rd, and then Flowers (still better throwing arm than reaquired McCann) gunned out PR Gallaway trying to steal in top of 9th
Newly acquired Hosmer reached 6 of 10 times in the series including 3 doubles and they key 9th inning single of Jansen after speedster Margot singled and stole to give Padres 2-1 win
Dodgers best player cards, but like the 1927 Yanks proved vulnerable vs a lefty starter and 5 lefty relievers, and w/ rookie replacing traded Wood, SD's Hosmer's onslaught continued off rookie Ferguson in 5-0 1st inning of 9-2 Sweep.
Another LHP kept LAD in check until Kershaw doubled and scored to overcome unearned run allowed, and newly acquired Kelly (from Red Sox) and Jansen made it hold up.
After weakness vs LHP exposed after Puig and Kemp traded, LAD finally faced a RHP Bellinger went deep twice , despite speedy leadoff SF Hanson's 4th hit in 2 games in 9th and being stranded with tying run.
Still waiting on Harper, Phillies Clutch Defense not good enough 2x as SS Segura could not stop Baez 2-run ground single, then C Alfaro failed to catch foul to lead to several in 9-2 Cubs win.
Phils Hernandez returned favor with grounder SS Baez Clutch Defense could not stop, allowing 2-run single then great closer Dominguez locked down for 3-1 Phillies
Verlander and Greinke were effective despite a rain delay that lowered effectiveness, but Verlander left after an 8th inning homer and Osuna gave up 2 more to lose 5-4 with Bradley shutting down the Astros in the 9th.
The Astros blew their second lead in a row when Harris gave up a clutch (BD) 3-run homer to Avila in the 6th and Chafin struck out Springer with bases loaded in the 9th for the 5-2 win.
Rizzo scored his 2nd run in the 10th to deliver the Cubs win
Bryant's 3-run homer in the 9th completed the Cubs rally from down 0-3 to a 6-3 win.
Former Astro Charlie Morton made his Rays Statis-Pro debut and missed the memo on no starting pitchers - throwing a complete game while Pham homered and A Garcia doubled in a run
Hoskin's 3-run homer & Herrera's 2-run homer in the 3rd helped the Phillies to a 6-1 sweep win to count as a sweep, and former Yankees reliever David Robertson finished it out.
Former Rays pitcher Archer finally have Pirates an ace for a dual against Carrasco (one of many Indians who would be aces for most teams) and dominant stopper Vazquez wrapped it up.
Ramirez reached 4 of 5 times in leadoff spot including a steal and homer to give one of many Indians ace starters, Bauer, the 9-3 win for sweep credit.
AJ Pollock reached three of four times in his Dodgers debut and made a clutch diving catch to end the 6th and keep Clayton Kershaw in a 2-2 tie en route to a 3-2 win. Bellinger made a clutch diving catch in centerfield the batter before, and in the 8th Turner made a diving catch at third base to end what had been a bases load, no outs rally. Bellinger then led off the bottom of the eighth with a game winning homer, and Jensen got the save in the top of the 9th (Ray Sac, K, Kershaw 0 of 2)
Az Dyson (cf) and Peralta (lf) threw runners out at home and Peralta added a clutch defensive diving catch, but an error from Ahmed (ss) on a DP grounder let the Dodgers win 1-0. (Hill 0 of 1)
Posey and Crawford had 4 hits each of Giants 17 hits for 13-2 sweep. Duggar ph for Samarejzija and had 2 hits in 7-run 5th. Crawford 3rd spectacular gem and 2 doubles while Panik's 3-run homer wrapped series.(Flaherty 1 of 2)
11th inning sac fly ended dual of top 2 hitting pitchers, both replaced in 9th by 2 of best closers in Cards Miller and Giants Black. Giants SS Crawford, a rare Clutch Defense 5, made specacular catches in 7th and 10th. (Wainwright 1 of 3, Bumgardner 0 for 3)
disappointing Rockies wasted gem by Mazquez and 2 rbi xbase hits by blackmon when Choo hit clutch base clearing double go cap 9th inn rally (Mazquez 0 of 2)
Rockies blew another 9th inn lead but clutch defense 5 arenado made a diving catch only he cod have made to end top.of 9th and then Dahl launched a GW HR to end it in the bottom of the 9th and salvage a split (Freeland 0 of 2)
Lorenzen / Roark?
Puig homered twice and a pitcher finally came through at the plate when the Reds Lorenzen, with the best hitting card of any pitcher (Home Run on 24-26 on Random Number with PB skipped for pitchers batting) doubled and scored in a 3-1. Former Reds Billy Hamilton played centerfield for the opposing Royals. (Lorenzen 1 of 3, 2b, r; Lively 0 of 2)
Sabathia became the 1st pitcher to homer as part of an 11-3 destruction of the Mets in which he gave up 3 runs in 8 innings in a match-up of No. 4/great hitting pitchers with Metz.
Grandal stepped in as new catcher cleanup hitter with 20run homer and Yelich's sac fly in the 12th delivered the Brewers win with Knebel going extra innings for win. (Suter 0 of 2).
Rodriguez 2-run homer offset Yelich's 2-run double tied game in 6th before Hader came in to shut Brewers down and force extra innings. However, on otherwise great fielding team grounder to weakest spot, 2B Perez, resulted in game-winning hit for Tigers in 10th.(Woodruf reached on error and wal, Ross 1 of 2 with single.
Manny Machado's Statis-Pro debut as a Padre could not have gone better for him. He was even better than his projected 0.878 OPS 28-35 Home Run range when he keyed a 3-0 lead with a RBI-double and then scored, followed by a third inning solo home run. However, the fluke Z play injury with Reyes and Margo colliding in the 4th not only led to a double and three run inning, but also left the Padres line-up down for the rest of the game as they finally fell 4-3 in 10 innings. (Leake Sacrafice bunt in only at bat)
Kershaw won behind a 3-run homer from Muncy and 2-run homer by Turner, but the Dodgers missed the sweep on an unearned run and Jansen came in with 2 on to strike out Trout to wrap up the 7-3 win.
Herrera came into strikeout all three batters he faced with the tying run on second and homers by Moncada and Jimenez helped the White Sox upsets the high powered Cubs, who got no hits in 3 at bats from strong hitting pitchers in Lester and Chatwood.
Scherzer allowed just 1 fluke run on an inside-the-park homer when Turner crashed into the wall, and added an RBI 2b and GO. Zimmerman reached 4x and scored 3, & Guerrero debuted 1 of 3 with walk
greinke 1 of 3 no strikeouts, and outdueoed another pb2-8 3-1 due to some marte CD line drive off bat of mccutcheon with bases loaded no outs for DP
Velazquez K and sac and into 7th and saved both pb2-8 to wrap up (Dominguez,Robertson)
Arrieta 1 of 2 rbi and k and 5 ip 1 er for win, Herndandez 2 homers to back him up and Robertson 4 out save
McCutcheon 2 homers including grandslam and 8 RBIs, Realmuto 2 doubles and HR, Seguard 3 of 5 with homer
Braves started homer (Acuna), hit by pitch (Albies) and homer (Freeman) and Donaldson later added a 2-run homer to back 6 scoreless innings from Fried.
Ace Minter got the last out of the 8th with the go ahead runner at the plate and added a 1-2-3 ninth for save.
Carpenter's 2 homers were the only brightspot as the loaded Cardinals continue to get blown out, as Martinez and relievers gave up 18 hits in a 10-3 drubbing by the Twins. Ace Reyes will try to end the bleeding.
Bumgarner, the best hitting pitcher in baseball (HR23-25 with no PB) hit a grandslam to make it 8-1, but the bullpen collapsed to allow an 8-8 tie before SF won. Austin 5 of 5.
Pomeranz just missed shutout, allowing 2 runners in 9th and Will Smith recorded the save. Longoria hit 2 home runs to gert credit for the sweep.
Despite the best pitching card in the game, Sale only went 5 IP with 9 runners and 2 runs allowed, and the Red Sox barely hung on despite Boegerts 1st inning grandlam.
Trailing 4-3 in the 9th, Betts beat out a double play grouner, and Boegerts hit a 2-run GW triple to cap a series with 2 doubles, 2 homers as well. Miami's Rolan would have been the hero with the 2-run HR in the 8th.
