Who Owns October (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 17, 2018

I guess Clayton Kershaw is getting sick of the “Kershaw can’t pitch in October” narrative. He was great in the Division Series, not so great in his first outing in the NLCS. But look at what we’ve got here!

Kershaw pitched like an ace, 7 innings, 3 hits, 1 run and 9 strikeouts, putting the Dodgers on the brink of their second straight World Series and a date with the lone hole in his Hall of Fame resume.

Meanwhile Andrew Benintendi should have been credited with the save with an all time brilliant catch with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th to put the Red Sox up 3-1 over Houston.

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 17, 2018

Andrew Benintendi doubled twice, scored twice and made a game saving catch with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th to seal the Red Sox heart stopping 8-6 victory over Houston.

Ryan Brasier got 5 key outs from the bullpen, allowing no runs and helped Boston beat Houston, 8-6.

Clayton Kershaw dominated Milwaukee, striking out 9 in 7 innings and earning the 5-2 victory for Los Angeles.

Justin Turner reached base 3 times, driving in a run and scoring another to help the Dodgers beat the Brewers, 5-2.

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Lorenzo Cain singled, doubled and drove in a run, but the Brewers fell short against the Dodgers, 5-2.

George Springer reached base 4 times, including a homer, but the Astros lost a dramatic 8-6 game to the Red Sox.

Brandon Woodruff came out of the bullpen in the first and threw 5 1/3 innings, striking out 8 Dodgers and allowing 2 earned runs and 1 unearned run. But he took the hard luck 5-2 loss for Milwaukee.
