WHO OWNED OCTOBER (#WOO) – TALLIES UPDATED FOR NLCS GAME 1 and ALCS GAME 2, October 12, 2020

Fox Sports

The LCS for both leagues have started!

Who owned October on October 12?

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 12, 2020 –

GAME 1 of the NLCS and GAME 2 of the ALCS

Receiving 1 WOO

Max Fried held the Dodgers to 1 run while striking out 9 over 6 innings, setting up the Braves 5-1 win.

Manuel Margot hit a 3 run home run and made a great defensive play to help the Rays take the 4-2 final from Houston.

Charlie Morton threw 5 shutout innings, striking out 5 Astros to earn the 4-2 victory for Tampa Bay.

Austin Riley broke a tie with a lead off home run in the 9th inning to power the Braves to a 5-1 victory over Los Angeles.

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Walker Buehler fanned 7 Braves in 5 innings but was long gone when the Dodgers bullpen collapsed in the 5-1 final.

Carlos Correa homered but the rest of the Astros bats were dead in the 4-2 defeat to the Rays.

Kiké Hernández homered to provide the Dodgers their only run in the 5-1 final against Atlanta.

Lance McCullers Jr. was outstanding, striking out 10 Rays in 7 innings, allowing 1 earned run. But 3 unearned runs were the Astros undoing in the 4-2 loss.

TEAMS WITH MULTIPLE PITCHERS WITH POST SEASON SAVES SINCE 1969 (Updated for 2017 ALCS)

mccullers

Karen Warren/Houston Chronicle

The save became an official stat in 1969. Teams in the post season initially played to the situation instead of using the closer in all close 9th innings. But as saves began to pile up (especially after Tony LaRussa began using Dennis Eckersley one inning at time) and the prices of an innings closers sky rocketed, managers seemed to manage by the book and stick the closer in no matter what.

Every once in a while, a team will have multiple pitchers record a save in a post season. It does not happen often, but they pop up. Mike Montgomery did not have a career save in the majors or minors until Game 7 of the 2016 World Series. Not a bad time to get your first one.

So here are all the teams to use more than one pitcher to save a game since 1969.
