Aerodynamics

  • Early
    fireworks…
    A seven-run eighth inning rally highlighted a 15-10 victory for
    the Aeros as they avoided a sweep by Reading Thursday night. The R-Phils led by
    as many as five runs before Akron scored 13 runs in the fifth through the
    eighth inning to secure the win. Right fielder Jerad Head hit a two-run home
    run in the first to start the scoring and added a second two-run round tripper
    in the fifth to bring the score to 7-6 in favor of the Phillies. The Aeros
    regained the lead in the following inning with two runs, but Reading responded
    with two in the sixth and one in the seventh for a 10-8 advantage. Akron’s
    rally was then started by center fielder Jordan Henry with a two-RBI single
    that scored left fielder Tim Fedroff and designated hitter Lucas Montero. Third
    baseman Lonnie Chisenhall then singled in Henry to take the lead 11-10. A
    bases-loaded walk scored second baseman Jason Kipnis before shortstop Carlos
    Rivero provided the final blow with a bases-clearing double to cap his four-RBI
    night.

  • Winning
    marbles…
    Right-handed reliever Bryan Price earned the win for the Aeros
    Thursday night and improved to 6-3 on the season. The Marble Falls, TX native
    allowed one run on three hits and struck out one over two innings of work. It
    is Price’s second win in his last three outings, as he also earned a victory
    against Reading a week prior.

  • Born to
    Run…
    The Aeros 15 runs Thursday night are the most they have scored in a
    game this season. The previous record was 12, set four times with the last
    coming on August 14th against New Britain. Coincidentally, two of
    the other four games came against Reading on May 7th and July 24th.

  • Heading
    Home…
    Head continues to be an offensive force since returning to the Aeros
    on Tuesday. With his three hits Thursday, the Topeka, Kan. native extended his
    hit streak to 17 games, second-longest of the season for Akron. Head has also
    hit four home runs in the past three days with one coming in a continuation
    game.

  • August
    heat…
    With Bowie and Harrisburg both losing Thursday, Akron now stands
    equally with the Senators, just one game back of the Baysox for the Western
    Division wild card. The Aeros now face their arguably most important week of
    the season with a three game series against Harrisburg before traveling to
    Bowie for another three game series and to complete a continuation game.

  • Fireworks
    encore…
    Fireworks will follow Friday’s game sponsored by Pizza Hut’s at
    Canal Park. August 21st marks the last Super Saver Saturday of the
    seasons where fans can take advantage of $7 tickets
    and $1 specials on hot dogs, draft beer, soft drinks and popcorn. Fans can also
    utilize a 10 percent discount at the Infield Outfitters team shop. In addition
    to all that value, the first 1,000 fans through the gates will receive an Aeros
    dry-fit t-shirt courtesy of FirstMerit.
