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.

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.
