Who Owned October (#WOO) – Tallies Updated For AL Division Series Game 2, October 5, 2019

colllllllllllllllllllllllle

Karen Warren, Houston Chronicle

The Astros got another dominating performance from an ace as both American League Division Series look lopsided.

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
2019 AL Division Series Game 2:

Receiving 1 WOO

Alex Bregman homered and singled, scoring twice in the Astros 3-1 victory over the Rays.

Gerrit Cole pitched shutout ball into the 8th, finishing with an eye popping 15 strikeouts against 4 hits and 1 walk and no runs as the Astros hung on against Tampa Bay, 3-1.

Didi Gregorius reached base 3 times and launched a grand slam in the third inning that helped give the Yankees 8-2 final over the Twins

Masahiro Tanaka struck out 7 Twins in 5 strong innings, allowing 1 run to earn the 8-2 decision for the Yankees.

 

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Diego Castillo pitched out of trouble in 1 2/3 shutout innings, allowing 1 hit and 1 run as the Rays dropped the 3-1 final to the Astros.

Mitch Garver doubled twice in the Twins 8-2 loss to the Yankees.

Austin Meadows singled and scored the Rays only run in their 3-1 defeat in Houston.

Devin Smeltzer stopped the bleeding with 3 1/3 shutout innings, striking out 4 Yankees, but the Twins were clobbered 8-2.
