The IronBirds scored in the first with Shayne Fontana opening the game with a single. Following a walk to Adley Rutschman, Fontana stole third base and Andrew Daschbach then singled to drive Fontana in.
The Tigers evened the score in the fifth, scoring an unearned run off IronBirds starter Kevin Magee, who deserved a better fate. Magee pitched six innings, allowing just two hits and the unearned run. He struck out eight.
Aberdeen got the unearned run back in the sixth. Kyle Stowers walked, Ian Evans singled and Jean Carmona walked to load the bases with one out. Dalton Hoiles then reached base on a fielding error in left field, allowing Stowers to score the go-ahead run.
Aberdeen went to Kyle Martin out of the bullpen in the seventh and he allowed a walk, two singles and a fielder’s choice which produced two runs.
Martin (2-2) takes the loss and is charged with a blown save. He pitched two innings, allowing two hits, two runs and two walks. He struck out one.
