ABERDEEN, Md. — Richland graduate Austin Urban pitched 5 2⁄3 innings of relief, allowing just two hits and striking out four in the Aberdeen IronBirds’ 3-1 victory over the State College Spikes at Ripken Stadium.

 Urban replaced starter Jorge Rivera in the third and coaxed a double-play grounder out of Mason Katz to open his appearance.

Urban retired the last 10 batters he faced before giving way to Harry Marino, who notched the save.

Urban is 1-2 with the IronBirds.

State College’s Andrew Pierce took the loss.
