Who Owns October (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 16, 2018

League Championship Series - Boston Red Sox v Houston Astros - Game Three

Boston Herald Staff photo by Christopher Evans

Jackie Bradley Jr. is hitting the hardest .200 I’ve ever seen in a series. He doesn’t get many hit, but MAN he makes them count.

The Red Sox were already up 4-2 when he came up with the bases loaded and two outs in the 8th. J. D. Martinez and Steve Pearce already made their marks with the bat. Nathan Eovaldi continued to be the ace of the post season.

But Jackie Bradley Jr.’s grand slam put the game away and suddenly put the Red Sox, who looked over matched in the series opener, in the driver’s seat.

Meanwhile, the Dodgers took a 13th inning thriller to make sure their NLCS will be a potential classic. Cody Bellinger didn’t start the game, but he made sure to end it.

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.
