It was a pitcher’s duel from the start. Both Aberdeen Ironbirds starter Alex Wells and Brooklyn Cyclones starter Raul Jacobson each pitched scoreless frames through 5 innings.

The Top of the 6th saw some pitching changes, as Max Knutson was summoned in to pitch in place of Wells. Kuntson ran into trouble from the get-go.
