Tapia went 1-for-5 with two runs scored and a stolen base in Sunday's 4-3 win over Milwaukee.
Both of Tapia's runs came late in the game, including the game-tying run in the ninth to send it to extras. The 25-year-old finishes the 2019 campaign with nine homers and nine stolen bases with 54 runs scored.
Tapia launched a grand slam during his only at-bat in Friday's win over the Brewers.
Tapia hit his home run as a pinch hitter in the sixth inning. It was his ninth long ball of the season, his fourth pinch-hit homer and the second pinch-hit grand slam of his career. After a strong second half to the season, the 25-year-old outfielder is batting .276/.311/.419. If he is able to lock in a consistent spot in the lineup, Tapia may hold underrated potential for the 2020 campaign.
