It was down to the wire at Chip Cummings as the ‘Birds dropped Game 1 of our scheduled double header 1-0.
Matthias Layva, who was just activated this morning, was able to get into the 5th inning with only one run allowed, but that’s all the Islanders would need.
Eddie Malone had two of the four ‘Birds hits while Kenny Collins and Raul Shah each added one of their own. They did not have a runner reach second base until the 6th inning.
The series finale starts in less than an hour, first pitch is scheduled for 4:30 PM. With a win the Redbirds will earn a split of the series before hitting the road for a ten day road trip followed by the All-Star Break.
Let’s go Redbirds!
