I need to do a little catch up for “Who Owns October?” AKA WOO.
It is the post season answer to Who Owns Baseball? which I did the entire regular season.

Each winning team for every post season game gets a pitcher and a hitter who earn a full WOO.
And at my discretion, I award a 1/2 WOO to a worthy player on the losing team.

For a full explanation, click HERE.

Now that I figured it out, I need to get up to date and figure out the WOOs through the Wild Card Games and each Division Series 2 games in, and from now on I’ll update the new names daily.

From today’s games:

Receiving 1 WOO:

Stephen Vogt‘s walk off single sealed the A’s 1-0 victory over the Tigers.

Sonny Gray threw 8 brilliant shutout innings against Detroit, setting up the 9th inning heroics.

David Ortiz homered in the 1st and 8th off of David Price and put an exclamation point on Boston’s 7-4 win over Tampa.

Koji Uehara sealed the Red Sox win with a flawless 9th inning.

Receiving 1/2 WOO:

Justin Verlander threw 7 shutout innings and wiggled out of trouble constantly before the bullpen lost the game for Detroit.

James Loney drove in a pair and briefly gave the Rays hope against Boston.

Receiving 1 WOO From Previous Games:

Pedro Alvarez homered and scored another run in the Pirates Game 2 victory in St. Louis.

Carlos Beltran’s 3 run homer sparked a 7 run Cardinals rally that sunk the Pirates early in Game 1.

Alex Cobb pitched shutout ball into the 7th inning, working around 8 hits and pitching the Rays past the Indians in the Wild Card game 4-0.

Gerrit Cole not only was excellent in the Pirates series tying game 2 victory with 6 innings of 2 hit ball, but he also drove in a runner as a hitter.

Adrian Gonzalez homered and drove in 2 runs in the Dodgers Game 1 Division Series victory over the Braves.

Desmond Jennings drove in 2 of Tampa’s 4 runs against Cleveland.

Chris Johnson singled home the go ahead run in Atlanta’s Game 2 win in the Division Series.

Clayton Kershaw pitched 7 brilliant innings, letting up 3 hits and striking out 12 Braves in the Dodgers Game 1 Division Series victory.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia drove in 3 of the Red Sox runs in Boston’s Game 1 blowout of the Rays.

Max Scherzer held the A’s to 3 hits and 2 runs over 7 innings in the Tigers Game 1 victory.
