Aberdeen, M.D. (August 30th, 2019) - It was only fitting that Aberdeen and Brooklyn exchanged blows in the series finale. In the 9th down one, Jaylen Ferguson's solo homer tied the game. Andrew Daschbach would later walk it off in a 5-4 victory. Aberdeen and Hudson Valley are now tied for the lead in the Division, and the final series of the year acts as the McNamara Division Championship.
