WHO OWNED OCTOBER (#WOO) – TALLIES UPDATED FOR NLCS GAME 2 and ALCS GAME 3, October 13, 2020

Kevin Jairaj, USA TODAY Sports

A wild night of baseball ended with 2 teams taking control.

Who owned October on October 13?

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 13, 2020 –

GAME 2 of the NLCS and GAME 3 of the ALCS

Receiving 1 WOO

Freddie Freeman broke a scoreless tie with a 2 run homer and added another RBI single as the Braves held on to top the Dodgers, 8-7.

Tyler Matzek threw a pair of shutout innings to earn the 8-7 decision for Atlanta over the Dodgers.

Joey Wendle got a pair of hits including the 2 run single that put the Rays up for good against Houston en route to a 5-2 victory.

Ryan Yarbrough threw 5 strong innings, striking out 5 Astros, allowing 3 hits and earned the 5-2 win for the Rays

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Michael Brantley got a pair of hits, including a home run, but the Astros dropped the 5-2 game to Tampa Bay.

Jake McGee worked out of a jam with a pair of strikeouts in the Dodgers 8-7 loss to the Braves.

Corey Seager reached base 3 times, including a home run and a double, driving in 4, but the Dodgers comeback fell just short to Atlanta, 8-7.

José Urquidy allowed 1 earned run over 5 innings but his defense betrayed him as the absorbed the 5-2 Houston loss to Tampa Bay.
