The season finale ended up being the return to the mound for Tucker Davidson, who left his June 15th game against the Red Sox with a forearm injury and hasn’t been seen since until Sunday. Davidson pitched well during an abbreviated outing that lasted three innings giving up a run on one hit and one walk while racking up five strikeouts. Connor Johnstone followed with two scoreless innings in relief before Jay Flaa allowed three runs during an inning to help open this one up. Trevor Kelley, Daysbel Hernandez, and Brooks Wilson each threw a scoreless frame to close out their seasons.

The pitching was strong with one exception, but the offense was putrid putting up three hits and no walks while being shut out in the finale. Johan Camargo doubled, while Chadwick Tromp and Ryan Casteel singled in a no show outing. Drew Waters finished his season going hitless in four at bats while Cristian Pache and Shea Langeliers each failed to reach base during their pinch-hit appearances.
