(Wally Skalij / Los Angeles Times)

The Dodgers scored as many runs before a single batter was retired as the Red Sox have in 2 whole games. Stephen Strasburg went from throwing a memorable masterpiece to a heartbreaking loss and Joe Girardi made one of the great managerial blunders in post season

Yup… it was an amazing day of baseball as only the playoffs can give us.

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 6
2017 National League Division Series Game 1
2017 American League Division Series Game 2:

Receiving 1 WOO

Kris Bryant broke up a no hitter in the 6th with a 2 out RBI single and would later come around to score as the Cubs blanked the Nationals, 3-0.

Carlos Correa homered, doubled and walked, driving in 4 as the Astros rolled again over Boston, 8-2.

Yan Gomes got on base 3 times including a dramatic walk off single in the bottom of the 13th in Cleveland’s wild 9-8 win against the Yankees.

Kyle Hendricks threw 7 shutout innings to earn the 3-0 decision for the Cubs over Washington.

Clayton Kershaw pitched into the 7th, allowing 5 hits and striking out 7 at the Dodgers took the opener against Arizona, 9-5.

Dallas Keuchel struck out 7 Red Sox in 5 2/3 innings to get the 8-2 victory for the Astros.

Josh Tomlin came out of the bullpen in the 12th and retired all 6 Yankees he faced, striking out 3 and setting up the walk off 9-8 finale in Cleveland.

Justin Turner homered in the first inning, reached base 4 times altogether, driving in 5 runs to lead the Dodgers past Arizona, 9-5.

 

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Zack Godley was pressed into service in the second inning and gave the Diamondbacks 5 frames of relief, allowing 2 earned runs and striking out 5. But it was too little too late as Los Angeles took the game, 9-5.

J. D. Martinez got 3 hits, including a homer, in the Diamondbacks 9-5 loss to the Dodgers.

David Price came out of the bullpen to throw 2 2/3 shutout innings and stop the bleeding. Nothing else worked however and the Astros clobbered the Red Sox, 8-2.

Gary Sanchez hit a startling 2 run homer off of Kluber in the first inning and added another hit. But the Yankees had an equally shocking meltdown and fell in 13 innings to the Indians, 9-8.

Stephen Strasburg took a no hitter into the 6th and allowed just 2 unearned runs and 3 hits over 7 innings, striking out 10 Cubs along the way. He would be charged with the hard luck 3-0 decision for the Nationals.

Christian Vazquez reached base 3 times and scored but the Red Sox were once again pounded by Houston, 8-2.

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 8/22/16

P- Jon Lester (vs. San Diego Padres): $12,500. Just to warn you, Monday could be a brutal day for pitching match-ups. Some of the top tier starters who find themselves on the bump have been struggling recently (Strasburg and Carrasco specifically). Lester has been very consistent this season though and he is facing a pretty mediocre offense. Over his last three starts, he has a 2-0 record, 2.29 ERA, and 21 strikeouts in 19.2 innings pitched. Over the last seven days, San Diego has the worst OPS in baseball.

P- Zack Godley (vs. Atlanta Braves): $5,500. Like I said, the pitching match-ups are brutal, so I’ve decided to start a pitcher just based off of his opposing team. The Braves offense has been brutal all year long and they have been exceptionally bad over the last seven days with a .236/.305/.380 slash line. Godley hasn’t been spectacular this year, but he is coming off a very good start his last time out against the Mets. He went 7.1 innings, giving up two runs on five hits. This cheap play really opens up the rest of the offensive picks.
