The victory put Aberdeen at 22-21 on the season.

Trailing after the fifth, 3-1, Aberdeen scored three in the sixth and four more in the seventh. Tri-City scored its final run in the top of the seventh.

Conor Bierfeldt led the Aberdeen offense with a three-run homer in the sixth and finished the game 3-for-4 with four RBIs.

The IronBirds' Thursday matchup with visiting Mahoning Valley was postponed because of heavy rains that pelted Aberdeen.

The game has not yet been rescheduled.

A ticket refund and exchange policy for those who purchased seats for the Thursday game will be announced at a later date, an official with the IronBirds' media relations office said.
