Quad Cities (41-21)
Uhhh. I don't know what to do with this. Quad Cities and Great Lakes met for the final time of the season, but inclement weather suspended the game in the 6th with the score tied at 3-3, so they'll count it as a tie, the first since 2003. The game won't be resumed, but it's official and all stats will count, though each team's records remain unchanged. So let's get Weird.
Akeem Bostick threw 6IP, 5H/3R (1ER), 7K:0BB.
Sean McMullen was 2x3 with a double and a stolen base; Jacob Nottingham was 1x3 with a 2-run homer in the 1st inning. Ramon Laureano hit an RBI sac fly.
Man of the Not-Match: Akeem Bostick. But there's no tying in baseball.
