Regular Season Ends Monday With 2:15 p.m. Game

Monday, September 1, 2014 - by Tim Evearitt

Reliever Daniel Coulombe walked the first batter he faced in the top of the final inning but when he struck out Addison Russell, the team poured out on to the field.

The photos tell the rest of the story.

Congress Needs To Get Down To Business And The News Media Report Facts
