Joy Standridge posted on social media Oct. 6 that her husband, Jason Standridge, “pitched his last game last night — maybe forever.” The Chiba Lotte right-hander started the Marines’ final game of the 2016 season at home, and he won, beating the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles, 7-1.

The victory evened Standridge’s record for the year at 8-8, and he lowered his ERA to a respectable 3.56, ninth best among Pacific League hurlers with the minimum 143 innings pitched. He most likely would have played in the PL Climax Series Final Stage had the third-place Marines defeated the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks in the first stage, but Lotte lost and his season was over.
