Who Owns October (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 4, 2018
Christian Yelich is still owning baseball even if it is October. He and Giancarlo Stanton have each homered in their first post season game. Little solace for Marlins fans.
Meanwhile Hyun-Jin Ryu has no time for Bull Penning and gave the Dodgers a good old fashioned solid playoff start.
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 4
National League Division Series Game 1:
Receiving 1 WOO
Max Muncy hit a 3 run homer and was walked 3 times to power the Dodgers past Atlanta, 5-0.
Hyun-Jin Ryu threw 7 shutout innings, striking out 8 Braves and walking none to earn the 5-0 win for the Dodgers.
Brandon Woodruff held the Rockies hitless over 3 shutout innings, striking out 3 and helped set up the Brewers 3-2 extra inning victory.
Christian Yelich reached base 4 times, including a 2 run homer that put Milwaukee on the board. The Rockies would tie the game in the 9th but the Brewers walked off 3-2 in the 10th.
Receiving 1/2 WOO
Charlie Blackmon drove in the first run in the Rockies game tying 9th inning rally. The Brewers would come back to win, 3-2 in 10.
Freddie Freeman got one of the few hits off of Ryu and made a fine catch into the stands. But it was not enough as the Braves were blanked by the Dodgers, 5-0.
Sean Newcomb stopped the bleeding by coming out of the bullpen in the 3rd and throwing 2 shutout innings. The Braves were still shutout by Los Angeles, 5-0.
Antonio Senzatela performed well in his surprise start, working around a homer to hold the Brewers to 2 runs over 5 innings. He did not factor in the decision as the Rockies fell in 10, 3-2.
