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
