Let’s see who owned baseball on August 26, 2020.
For an explanation of how WOB works, click here.
Earning Full WOBs:
Michael Conforto reached base 4 times, homered, scored 3 and stole a base to lead the Mets to a 5-4 victory over Miami.
Jacob deGrom dominated the Marlins with 7 innings of 2 hit, 1 run ball, striking out 14 in the process. The bullpen blew his lead but the Mets wound up taking the 5-4 final.
Mike Fiers held the Rangers to an unearned run over 6 frames as the A’s won again, 3-1.
Rowdy Tellez homered twice and added a single as the Blue Jays clobbered the Red Sox, 9-1.
Earning 1/2 WOBs:
Patrick Corbin threw 6 innings, allowing 2 runs, but was not involved in the decision as the Phillies edged his Nationals 3-2.
Whit Merrifield went 3 for 5 with 2 RBI in the Royals 6-5 loss to St. Louis.
Masahiro Tanaka was brilliant through 5 innings, allowing 3 hits, no walks and no rins. But he was lifted and the Yankee bullpen allowed the Braves to come back, 2-1, and finish the double header sweep.
Christian Walker got 3 hits and drove in 4 runs but the Diamondbacks came up short against Colorado, 8-7.

The Cardinals came from behind in a dramatic manner while the Dodgers took care of business methodically.
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.
