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 Monday. We sincerely regret the error. It shouldn’t be surprising that most entrants in Patch’s Pro Baseball Pick ‘Em Contest 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 teams would score 33 runs (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!

Win one of three $25 gift baskets from Peeps by creating a scene featuring the colorful marshmallow bunnies and chicks.
Sugary, gooey marshmallow Peeps® have been an Easter basket staple for decades. But these little pastel chicks and bunnies have become more than a treat, as general creative types find their cuteness and bright colors fit perfectly in witty art installations. Peeps have been given roles on the White House front lawn, in re-creations of children’s books, historical settings and other, um, unusual situations. Many have been inspired by a contest run by the Washington Post, and now the Milwaukee-area Patches bring you their first official Peeps Challenge! Here is how the contest works: Peeps will present three gift baskets worth $25 each to three winners. So get started creating, and try not to eat the exhibit!
