The Lowell Spinners edged Adam Hall and his Aberdeen IronBird teammates 3 – 2.
Robbie Thorburn and Hall both reached safely and scored to start the game. Thorburn scored on an error on third baseman Korby Batesole. Hall came home on a bases loaded walk by Dalton Hoiles.
But that was it for the IronBirds scoring, as Lowell tied things up in the 5th inning with some strategic baseball. Three straight hits off of Jose Diaz including an RBI single by Jarren Duran gave the Spinners their first run. Zach Matson came in to retire the side and allowed one more run on a sacrifice fly from Trey Ganns.
It all came down to the bottom of the seventh. Ryan Conroy retired the first two batters in order of the inning and then allowed the next two to reach. A single from Tyler Esplin to right field scored Delvin Granberg from second base. For the second time this season, the Spinners earned a walk off win against the IronBirds.
Hall had 3 At Bats, he scored 1 Run, off 1 Hit and 1 Strike Out.
