Who Owns the World Series (WOWS) – Tally Updated For WS Game #5 October 28, 2013
Each winning team for every post season game gets a pitcher and a hitter who earn a full WOWS (Who Owns the World Series.)
And at my discretion, I award a 1/2 WOWS to a worthy player on the losing team.
For a full explanation, click HERE.
From October 28th’s game:
Receiving 1 WOWS:
Jon Lester won his second game of the World Series, pitching 7 2/3 innings and allowing just 1 run, striking out 7 and walking none as he dominated the Cardinals, 3-1.
David Ortiz went 3-4, drove in a run in the first and raised his mindboggling World Series average to .733 as he helped the Red Sox top St. Louis, 3-1.
Receiving 1/2 WOWS:
Matt Holliday launched a game tying home run that supplied basically all the offense for St. Louis as they lost 3-1 to Boston.
Adam Wainwright threw 7 innings and struck out 10 to only one walk. It wouldn’t be enough as he was the hard luck loser, 3-1 to Boston.
Current WOWS tallies (World Series Only):
David Ortiz, Red Sox – 2 1/2
Carlos Beltran, Cardinals – 1 1/2
Matt Holliday, Cardinals – 1 1/2
Jonny Gomes, Red Sox – 1
Xander Bogaerts, Red Sox – 1/2
