IronBirds snap losing skid and scoreless streak, top Lowell 6-3

Having not scored in their previous 25 turns at the plate, the Aberdeen IronBirds snapped their run drought in the opening inning of Tuesday's home game with Lowell, plating two runs en route to a 6-3 victory over the Spinners.

With the win, Aberdeen improved to 25-36 for the season.

Before coming through with two runs in the bottom of the first, the last time Aberdeen had brought a runner home was the second inning of a Saturday loss to Connecticut. That game was followed by back-to-back shutouts, also at the hands of Connecticut.

Following the two-run rally in the first, the IronBirds scored once in each inning from the third to the sixth.

Aberdeen's Creede Simpson belted a solo homer, his second round-tripper of the season, and finished the game 3-for-5 with one run and two RBIs. Leadoff man Anthony Vega was 2-for-4 with a triple and two runs scored, while teammate Sam Kimmel went 3-for-5 with one RBI and one run.

Picking up his second win in the last five days was Aberdeen reliever Sander Beck (3-3), who struck out five, walked two and allowed two earned runs on two hits over four innings.
