BIRD NOTES: Will I'Birds Dry Off, Snap Skid?
Patch brings you some notes on the Aberdeen IronBirds before the first pitch.
The IronBirds will play tonight. For once.
And they'll play twice. This once.
After battling rainouts and raindrops recently, Aberdeen wraps up its series at Staten Island Monday night with a double-header before returning to Ripken Stadium for the final time this year.
The IronBirds look to snap an 0-for-7 against the Yankees, giving the ball to right-hander Tyler Wilson for Game 1 against Staten Island (41-24). The last-place IronBirds (22-44) face Yankees right-hander Bryan Mitchell.
The IronBirds send Matt Hobgood to the mound for Game 2.
Here's tonight's Game 1 starting lineup, courtesy the IronBirds Twitter feed:
- CF Glynn Davis
- LF Martin Serrata
- SS Mychal Givens
- 1B Joe Velleggia
- C Wynston Sawyer
- 3B Connor Narron
- DH Austin Knight
- 2B Dudley Leonora
- RF Kyle Hoppy
SP: Tyler Wilson
