Down East saw starter Owen White finished the 2021 season with a dominant performance. White took a no hitter into the 8th inning, losing the no no on a one out single, then giving up a two out home run that ended the shutout. The final line was 7.2 IP, 2 hits, 2 runs, 0 walks, 11 Ks. White ends the regular season with a 3.24 ERA. Leury Tejada threw 1.1 shutout innings in relief of White.

Jayce Easley had a single, a double and a walk. Keyber Rodriguez had a single, a homer and a walk. Cody Freeman had a single, a walk and four stolen bases.

The Ducks finish with the second best record in low-A East and are playoff bound.

The Roughriders lose a heartbreaker in 10. Zak Kent started and went 4.1 IP, allowing three runs on eight hits while striking out eight. Chase Lee, protecting a three run lead in the ninth after finishing the seventh and throwing a scoreless eighth, allowed a one out three run home run to tie the game. After Frisco scored a run in the 10th, Daniel Robert, pitching on back to back days for (per Scott Lucas) the first time in his career, gave up a game tying double, hit a batter, got a fielders choice, then gave up a walkoff bomb.

Bubba Thompson had a single, a triple and a homer. Josh Smith had a single, a walk and two doubles. Davis Wendzel had two walks, two singles and a homer. Josh Stowers had a single, a walk and a homer. Blaine Crim had a hit.

Frisco needed either a win, or both Arkansas and Northwest Arkansas to lose, to get in. NWA won, so Frisco is out of the playoffs. Their season is over.

Round Rock, like Frisco, lost on a walkoff homer. Josh Jung had a pair of hits.
