New Orleans scored first in the bottom of the fifth.

Single-A Short Season (New York-Penn League)

Batavia Muckdogs (6-23)

Batavia lost their sixth game in a row in a Saturday evening matchup with the 13-16 Aberdeen Ironbirds by a 9-0 final score in front of 808 at Dwyer Stadium.

Reilly Hovis (2-3, 6.23) finished the game with a GameScore of 23, allowing six earned runs on 10 hits and a walk in only 3.1 innings. Jeong-Hyeon Yoon (1-2, 4.11) earned the win for the Ironbirds in relief, fanning two and allowing a hit and a walk in 2.2 innings.
