Who Owns October In MLB Playoffs 2015? (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 14, 2015
A throw back from the catcher gone wrong, Canadians gone nuts, Rangers infield gone bad and a bat flip heard from Canada started the day. Johnny Cueto adding tens of millions of dollars to his off season value ended the day. The ALCS is set and the state of Texas has a lot of reasons to be sad.
Time to figure out who owns October!
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.
At the end of the post season, we will see who had the highest WOO total as a pitcher and a hitter.
A complete description of the rules can be found HERE.
From October 14th. AL Division Series, Game 5:
Receiving 1 WOO’s
Johnny Cueto retired the last 19 batters he faced, going 8 innings, with 2 hits, 2 runs and 8 strikeouts to clinch the Division Series for the Royals, 7-2 over the Houston.
Jose Bautista doubled home a run and then hit the tie breaking dynamic three run homer that led the Blue Jays to a hair raising 6-3 Division Series clinching win over the Rangers.
Alex Rios singled and hit a go ahead 2 run RBI double in the 5th that put the Royals up for good to beat the Rangers, 7-2 and win the Division Series.
Marcus Stroman pitched 6 strong innings, allowing 2 hits, 1 walk and 4 strike outs. He did not get a decision but set up Toronto’s 6-3 clincher over Texas.
Receiving 1/2 WOO’s
Cole Hamels pitched into the 7th, allowing 2 earned runs over 6 1/3 innings, striking out 8. The Rangers errors were his undoing as he got a hard luck 6-3 loss in Toronto.
Rougned Odor collected 2 hits and alertly scored on a deflected throw from the catcher and briefly gave the Rangers the lead. The Blue Jays would come back and win, 6-3.
Luis Valbuena homered and gave the Astros an early 2-0 lead. The Royals would come all the way back and win the game 7-2 and clinch the Division Series.
