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.
For a full explanation, click HERE
From October 3rd LDS games:
Receiving 1 WOO
Matt Carpenter homered and then hit a bases clearing go ahead 3 run double in the 7th as the Cardinals pulled ahead to stun the Dodgers, 10-9.
Kevin Gausman gave the Orioles 3 2/3 innings of 1 run relief that kept the Tigers from pulling away. Eventually Baltimore would come back to win, 7-6.
Marco Gonzales was the winning pitcher of the most anticipated pitching match up of the year. His one inning of scoreless relief was one of the lone pitching highlights of the Cardinals 10-9 slug fest win against the Dodgers.
Eric Hosmer got on base 4 times, scored a pair and launched the go ahead and eventual game winning 2 run homer in the top of the 11th, leading the Royals to yet another thrilling Royals postseason win. This one was 4-1 over the Angels.
Joe Panik got an RBI single and later tripled and scored and played solid defense, leading San Francisco to a 3-2 victory against the Nationals.
Jake Peavy threw shutout ball into the 6th, finishing with 5 2/3 innings allowing 2 hits and earned the 3-2 win for the Giants in Washington.
Yordano Ventura gave the Royals 7 strong innings, allowing 1 run and 5 hits. He would not get the decision but he set the stage for the 4-1 extra innings victory over the Angels.
Delmon Young hit a pinch hit 3 run double that sparked a wild 8th inning Orioles come back that sunk Detroit, 7-6.
Receiving 1/2 WOO
Miguel Cabrera doubled and went 3-4 with a run scored. It wasn’t enough as the Tigers blew a late lead and fell 7-6 in Baltimore.
Kole Calhoun got a pair of hits and scored the Angels only run in their 4-1 extra inning loss to Kansas City.
A. J. Ellis went 4-5 with a homer, 3 runs scored and 2 RBI in the Dodgers shocking 10-9 loss to the Cardinals.
Bryce Harper went 2-4 including a towering homer that put the Nationals on the board. They would lose to the Giants, 3-2.
Matt Shoemaker did not allow an earned run over his 6 innings of work, walking none while striking out 6. He would not get a decision as the Angels would lose 4-1 in 11 innings.

I recorded today’s podcast from the center field bleachers of PetCo Park in San Diego California, home of the Padres.
That’s right, I was in the ONLY Southern California baseball stadium not hosting a playoff game today.
I discussed the underrated misery of San Diego fans, the predictability of the Tigers’ bullpen failure, the insanity of the Royals playoff games and my love for a Quadruple Header in baseball today.
It is a Staying Classy in San Diego episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

With Baltimore taking a 1 – 0 advantage on the Tigers yesterday, the oddsmakers now have them tied with the Nationals for the best odds to win the World Series.
I don’t agree with this at all. If you still like the Detroit club, the time to bet is right now. Justin Verlander has a proven playoff track record, and the squad has David Price and Max Scherzer in Games 3 and 4, with Max Scherzer back for a potential game #5.
You always see these swings on a 1 game basis in the postseason.
The Dodgers will only be at this clip for 1 day too. If you want to put some cabbage on them, do it before Clayton Kershaw takes the hill and wins tonight.
Kansas City is favored to win the series versus the Angels at -175, to LAA’s +145, but are still a bigger longshot to win the World Series.
My advice: plunk some money down on the LAA for the ALDS series at that mark. It was a close game last night, and the Royals will not make it easy on themselves in the series.
I would still wait on the St. Louis team if you wish to bet them at all, as well as the Giants. Both teams have a tough nature to knock off, as their World Series in 3 of the last 4 years indicates.
You think the odds are high now, wait if they lose tonight’s games. It will jump to near +1400 or +1600. Wait a day for those guys.

When asked which Nationals are key to winning in October the trendy picks are going to be Jayson Werth and his .264/.374/.586 postseason batting line or Bryce Harper along with the fact that he has the most raw talent of any National, hit .288/.359/.454 in the second half of the season, and is fully capable of a month like he had in April 2013 when he hit .344/.430/.720. Both of them are full capable of carrying the Nats for a month, but there is another Nat that is known for crazy hot streaks and can carry the team and that is Ian Desmond.
Ian Desmond finished the season with his best month hitting .277/.351/.458 and while that isn’t a particularly hot month for Ian Desmond he never had a truly cold month this season with April being his worst month with a .644 OPS. Ian Desmond never truly had one…
