Aberdeen, M.D. - Aberdeen came home after a series win over Tri-City to see the Connecticut Tigers and start five games in three days. Wednesday's doubleheader brought Aberdeen good fortune and two different 6-1 wins.

GAME ONE

UP TWO: For the fourth straight game, the IronBirds took a 2-0 lead in the first two innings. Willy Yahn led off the second with a single and moved over on Nick Horvath's sacrifice bunt. Jean Carmona brought home Yahn with a single, and came home to score on Alfredo Gonzalez's RBI base knock.

NOTHING NEUSTROM: Robert Neustrom got the next two RBIs for the IronBirds. His first came in the third inning on an RBI double that scored J.C. Escarra after his single. 

In the fourth inning Connecticut picked up an earned run on an error from second baseman Jean Carmona.

Neustrom got another in the 5th inning but took three bags because of it. Yahn would smack one through the infield and score Neustrom in that frame to make it 5-1 IronBirds
