One ace looked the part in the Wild Card Game and the Red Sox bats timed their hits against the Yankees.
Who owned October on October 5?
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 5, 2021 –

Nathan Eovaldi pitched brilliantly into the 6th, finishing with 1 run over 5 1/3 innings, fanning 8 Yankees while walking none to earn the 6-2 decision for the Red Sox.
Receiving 1/2 WOO
Clay Holmes kept the Yankees in the game with 2 shutout innings of relief. The damage was already done as Boston took the 6-2 final
