Who Owns October In MLB Playoffs 2016? (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 7, 2016
A bunch of aces threw today. Some were bombed. Some disappointed. But 3 were amazing and one of them took a horribly tough loss.
Time to see who owned 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 7th.
AL Division Series Game 2 and NL Division Series Game 1:
Receiving 1 WOO’s
Javier Baez hit a solo homer that accounted for all the scoring in the Cubs 1-0 defeat of the Giants.
Corey Kluber threw 7 shutout innings, allowing 3 hits while striking out 7 Red Sox batters to give the Indians a decisive 6-0 victory.
Brandon Guyer went 3 for 4 with 2 runs scored and an RBI to propel the Indians past Boston, 6-0.
Kenley Jansen entered a tense game in the 8th and finished a 5 out save, striking out 3 in the process, preserving the Dodgers 4-3 final over the Nationals.
Jon Lester threw 8 shutout innings, walking none and allowing only 5 San Francisco hits as he won a tense 1-0 pitchers duel for the Cubs.
Roberto Osuna entered the game in the 8th with the Rangers rallying and stopped any Texas momentum. He recorded a 5 out save to nail down the 5-3 Game 2 final for Toronto.
Troy Tulowitzki singled and hit a 2 run homer to lead the Blue Jays firepower past Texas 5-3.

Mookie Betts reached base twice but could not be driven in as the Red Sox were blanked by Cleveland, 6-0.
Johnny Cueto was brilliant over 8 innings, allowing 3 hits and 1 run on a solo homer, walking none and striking out 10 Cubs. That one run was enough however to earn a hard luck 1-0 San Francisco loss.
Ian Desmond collected 3 hits, including a double, driving in 2 in the Rangers’ 5-3 loss to Toronto.
Buster Posey singled and doubled but could not be driven home as the Giants fell to the Cubs, 1-0.
