The Ironbirds didn’t let the Cyclones get comfortable with the lead, and tied up the game in bottom of the first with the help of two Cyclone error, the first by pitcher Casey Meisner, who failed to field a bunt. Amed Rosario was the responsible for the second error of the inning. Three Ironbird runs would score that inning.

Two more Aberdeen runs scored, a two out triple in the fourth, that scored the runner who reached on another fielding error by Amed Rosario. The final Ironbird run came in the seventh, ground out that scored a leadoff triple.
