Aeros Stat of the Day:

  • Akron lost the overall season
    series to the Baysox for the first time in over 10 years despite winning this
    week’s series against Bowie. The Aeros finished the year 8-10 against their
    division rival.

  • Back
    on track…
    The
    Aeros did their part to stay in the wild card hunt with an 8-1 win in their
    last regular season game against Bowie. Akron started the scoring early with
    two runs in the first inning when second baseman Jason Kipnis reached safely on
    a single to left field and eventually scored the first run after a wild pitch.
    Designated hitter Jerad Head then hit a sacrifice fly that allowed third
    baseman Lonnie Chisenhall cross home plate and made the score 2-0. In the
    second, left fielder Tim Fedroff hit an RBI single to score right fielder John
    Drennen. The Aeros doubled their lead in the fifth with Chisenhall’s RBI single
    to score left fielder Tim Fedroff, Kipnis’ run on an error, and shortstop
    Carlos Rivero’s sacrifice fly to score Chisenhall. Akron built their lead to
    eight before Bowie hit a home run in the bottom of the seventh to put the final
    at 8-1.

  • Good
    Berger…
    Berger
    limited the Baysox batters to just one hit while striking out two and walking
    two in his first appearance since returning to Akron on Aug. 22. The southpaw
    earned the win to improve to 5-5 on the year with the Aeros. Berger forced
    eight Baysox batters to ground out and had five flyouts.

  • Wright
    time…
    Right-handed
    reliever Steven Wright came on in the seventh for the remainder of the game to
    record his fifth save of the season, allowing one run on four hits with three
    strikeouts and two walks. It is the Torrence, Calif. native’s first save since
    July 7, and has successfully fulfilled his last four save opportunities.

  • POW
    battle…
    Second
    baseman Jason Kipnis and third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall are battling it out
    for team player of the week honors. Kipnis broke out of a five-game hitless
    slump in with six hits in the three-game series against Bowie. Altogether, the
    Northbrook, Ill. native went 6-12 with a double, three runs, and an RBI on the
    short road trip. Kipnis leads the team in batting with a .325 average with 86
    hits, 37 RBI, 54 runs, 17 doubles, four triples and nine home runs. Chisenhall
    went 5-12 against Bowie with a double, home run, three runs scored, and four
    RBI. The Newport, N.C. native leads the current roster with 16 home runs.

  • Anybody’s
    race…
    The Aeros
    will have to take care of business and hope for some help as they remain 3.5
    games behind Harrisburg for the wild card, but are now just two games behind
    Bowie with 12 games to play. Those games include eight against the Erie
    SeaWolves, last place in the Western Division, and four games against the
    Eastern League leading Trenton Thunder.

  • Number
    one fireworks…
    The
    final fireworks show of the season will follow Friday’s game against Erie and
    will be sponsored by KeyBank. On Saturday, the first 1,000 fans will receive a
    foam finger giveaway sponsored by the Akron Canton Airport. The airport will
    also be giving away a free AirTran airline voucher to two lucky fans in
    attendance. Sunday will be the final Family Pack Sunday and will be sponsored
    by the Duquesne Incline where fans can buy four tickets, four hot dogs, four
    fountain drinks, and four bags of chips for only $48!
