Earning Full WOBs:

Asdrúbal Cabrera homered twice, doubled twice and drove in 5 to help give the Nationals a much needed lopsided 16-4 win over the Mets.

Lance McCullers Jr. threw 7 innings of 1 hit shutout ball as the Astros snapped out of a losing streak to top San Francisco, 6-4.

Aaron Nola struck out 10 Braves in 8 strong innings, allowing 2 hits and 1 run as the Phillies rolled to a “not as close as the final score would indicate” 13-8 laugher.

Mike Trout collected 4 hits, including 2 homers. His second home run was a dramatic tie breaking solo shot in the 8th that ended the A’s winning streak and made the Angels 10-9 winners.

Earning 1/2 WOBs:

Charlie Blackmon went 4 for 5 with 3 RBI and a run scored but the Rockies fell to Arizona, 12-8.

Matt Chapman homered twice and tripled, driving in 6. It was not enough as the A’s lost for the first time in 10 games, 10-9 to the Angels.

Dallas Keuchel was effective through 6 innings, but the White Sox bats were dead and dropped the 5-1 final in Detroit.

Dustin May allowed 2 runs over 6 innings, striking out a pair of Padres, but took the hard luck 2-1 loss for Los Angeles.

Who Owned October (#WOO) – Tallies Updated For AL Division Series Game 3 and NL Division Series Game 4, October 7, 2019

Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees took care of business against the Twins while the other 3 series are still alive and well.

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 7
2019 AL Division Series Game 3
2019 NL Division Series Game 4:
