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:

Receiving 1 WOO

Willy Adames got on base 4 times, including a doubles and a homer, to help the Rays stun the Astros, 10-3.

Paul Goldschmidt reached base 4 times, homered and scored the tying run in the dramatic 8th inning rally as the Cardinals walked off on Atlanta, 5-4 in 10 innings.

Chad Green gave the Yankees 1 1/3 shutout innings to earn the 5-1 decision over the Twins.

Miles Mikolas pitched a scoreless 10th inning to earn the 5-4 Cardinals win over Atlanta.

Charlie Morton struck out 9 Astros in 5 innings, allowing 1 run as the Rays ran off with the 10-3 final.

Max Scherzer went 7 strong innings, allowing 1 run while striking out 7 Dodgers to lead the Nationals past Los Angeles, 6-1.

Gleyber Torres homered, hit two doubles, scored 3 runs and provided sparkling defense to lead the Yankees to a 5-1 clinching victory in Minnesota.

Ryan Zimmerman had a pair of hits including a back breaking 3 run homer to help seal the Nationals season saving game, 6-1 against the Dodgers.

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Ronald Acuña Jr. collected 4 hits, including a double and a triple, but the Braves came up short against St. Louis, 5-4.

José Altuve homered and doubled in the Astros 10-3 loss in Tampa Bay.

Dustin May recorded 2 scoreless innings to help preserve the Dodgers’ bullpen as they lost to Washington, 6-1.

Eddie Rosario singled, doubled and homered in the Twins 5-1 elimination game against the Yankees.

Josh Tomlin gave the Braves 4 critical outs in relief before being lifted in the 8th inning. The Cardinals would tie the game in the 8th and win the game, 5-4, in 10.
