On the final day of the season for Dayton and Daytona they both wound up being washed out by rain, though Daytona’s game got underway before it came to a halt in the 4th inning. Andrew Abbott put together another good start for Chattanooga that saw him rack up nine strikeouts while Elly De La Cruz stole three bases and picked up two hits in the Lookouts win, and in Louisville a trio of big leaguers rehabbed while Juniel Querecuto homered for the 3rd straight game.
