Ultimately, the IronBirds didn’t need to tack on extra runs, as the collective efforts of the pitching staff held the Cyclones offense. Righty Jordan Kipper started, but he only stayed in for one inning. It was an effective frame, as Kipper allowed just one hit while striking out two. Fenter came in after that and gave the Birds five solid innings. Fellow relievers Nick Vichio and Ryan Conroy kept things rolling from there, as the Cyclones didn’t record a hit after the fifth.
