Who Owned October (#WOO) – Tallies Updated For ALCS Game 1 and NLCS Game 2, October 12, 2019

Well the balls are not juiced anymore and pitching seems to be king again. Are we on our way to a New York vs. Washington World Series?

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
2019 ALCS Game 1
2019 NLCS Game 2:

Max Scherzer took a no hitter into the 7th, finishing with 7 shutout innings, allowing 1 hits and 2 walks while striking out 11 Cardinals to earn the 3-1 decision for Washington.

Masahiro Tanaka dominated the mighty Astros lineup with 6 innings of 1 hit shutout ball, walking one and striking out 4 in the Yankees 7-0 victory..

Michael A. Taylor went 2 for 4 with a homer to help the Nationals top the Cardinals 3-1.

Gleyber Torres singled, doubled and homered, driving in 5 runs to lead the Yankees offense to a 7-0 shutout of the Astros.

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Zack Greinke did not walk a batter over 6 innings holding the Yankee offense to 3 runs. But the Astros could not put up a fight and were shutout, 7-0.

José Martínez once again provided most of the Cardinals offense off the bench with an RBI pinch hit double in the 3-1 loss to the Nationals.

Adam Wainwright pitched into the 8th, striking out 11 Nationals over 7 1/3 innings but took the hardluck 3-1 decision for St. Louis.
