Johnny, who's going to come on down?

Alfred, come on down!

Alfred- 425
Natalie- 315
Elaine- 300
Patricia- 435

ARP: $415

Natalie will play another fairly new game called 3 STRIKES for a 1976 Chevrolet Chevette.

In 3 STRIKES, the contestant is shown eight baseballs, four white ones of which have a unique digit representing one of the four numbers in the price of the car, and three red ones that each have an X called a strike. The balls are placed into a rotating drum, designed for blind draw access, and shuffled.
The contestant blindly draws a ball from the bag. If they pick a white ball with a number, they must decide which position (spot) that digit belongs (e.g.: "the third digit"). If they are correct, the ball is discarded into a slot in the game board and the digit is lit up in the price display. If they are incorrect, a buzzer will sound and a giant "NO" symbol will be superimposed over the whole board. However, this does not count as a strike. The ball gets returned to the bag and the contestant draws again. If the contestant draws a red ball with a strike, an X marker is lit on the board and that ball is discarded into the slot.
The contestant may continue to draw as many times as possible until he or she either correctly place each digit on the spot in the price of the car and either wins the car or draws the three strikes and loses the game.

The Numbers today are 5, 6, 3, and 7. There are also 3 STRIKES- avoid them if possible.

PICK 1: X- STRIKE ONE!
PICK 2: X- STRIKE TWO!
PICK 3: 5- Natalia says it's in the 2nd spot- NO!
PICK 4: X- NATALIE IS OUT!

What makes this so bad was that the poor girl didn't get a single number. The Car was $3,657.
