WHO OWNED THE WORLD SERIES (#WOWS) and WHO OWNED OCTOBER (#WOO) – TALLIES UPDATED FOR WORLD SERIES GAME 6, October 27, 2020

KELLY GAVIN/GETTY IMAGES

Oh man, Blake Snell deserved better. Meanwhile the Dodgers got the job done and we have the final entries for Who Owned October.

Who owned October on October 27th.

Each winning team for every post season game gets a pitcher and a hitter who earn a full WOO (Who Owns October.)

And at my discretion, I award a 1/2 WOO’S to a worthy player on the losing team.

But the World Series deserves its own stats. WOWS (Who Owns the World Series.)

At the end of the post season, we will see who had the highest WOO total as a pitcher and a hitter. The WOWS total will be kept separately. Each game now counts towards both tallies.

A complete description of the rules can be found HERE.

From October 27, 2020 –

GAME 6 of the World Series

Receiving 1 WOO and WOWS

Mookie Betts doubled to set up the Dodgers comeback, scored the go ahead run and then homered to ice the Rays for the 3-1 clincher.

Julio Urías recorded the final 7 outs, striking out 4 Rays to clinch the World Series for the Dodgers with the 3-1 final.

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Randy Arozarena hit his 10th postseason home run and added another hit in the Rays 3-1 eliminating loss to the Dodgers.

Blake Snell dominated the Dodgers, striking out 9 in 5 1/3 innings. He was inexplicably taken out of the game and the Rays lost, 3-1.
