Jake Arrieta was unstoppable and Kyle Schwarber sent a ball into the stratosphere, making them the easy picks for last night’s Mr. Octobers.
With the LDS round about to begin, all Mr. Octobers of the coming round get 3 points (6 if it’s a Game 5).
Standings so far (PP= Position Player, P= Pitcher, * means eliminated from playoffs):
P Dallas Keuchel 1
PP Colby Rasmus 1
PP Kyle Schwarber 1
P Jake Arrieta 1
Recently called back up, Kyle Schwarber fell just a triple short of the cycle last night, unlike Shin-Soo Choo, who did hit for the cycle. However, Schwarber’s near-cycle had TWO home runs, including a game-tying one in the 9th and a game-winning one during extras. So he’s the MVP of Yesterday.
Standings, as always, after the jump:
