Who Owns October (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 2, 2018
Not a bad way to start the playoffs, eh? A 13 inning marathon whose great starting pitching was regulated to footnote as one of the most unlikely of players became an October hero.
I almost gave the WOO to Trevor Story, who got 3 hits and scored the eventual winning run. But honoring Wolters was too great to pass up.
So 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 2
National League Wild Card Game:
Receiving 1 WOO
Kyle Freeland threw a shutout into the 7th, finishing with 6 2/3 innings, no runs and struck out 6 Cubs. He did not get the decision but the Rockies held on to win 2-1.
Tony Wolters did not start the game but delivered the 2 out 13th inning RBI single that put the Rockies up for good as they topped the Cubs, 2-1.
Receiving 1/2 WOO
Javier Baez smacked a double that tied the Wild Game at 1 in the 8th inning. The Cubs would go on to drop the 2-1 final to Colorado.
Jon Lester kept the damage to a minimum after a 1 run first inning. He settled down struck out 9 Rockies in 6 innings and did not get the decision in the Cubs 2-1 extra inning loss.
