  • More is less… Extra innings continued to be a
    bad omen for the Aeros as they fell to Trenton 4-3 in 10 innings Monday. Both
    teams scored in the first inning as Akron took the early lead on an RBI single
    by designated hitter Jerad Head that scored shortstop Cristo Arnal from second.
    Trenton responded with a leadoff home run by Justin Christian to tie the game.
    Lance Berkman, on rehab appearance with the Thunder, provided Trenton with a
    2-1 lead when he scored on a groundout. Trenton increased their lead when Rene
    Rivera hit a solo home run to make it 3-1. The Aeros come back started in the
    eighth when center fielder Jordan Henry tripled to right field and scored on a
    ground out by Arnal. First baseman Beau Mills led off the ninth, also with an
    extra base hit, as he doubled to center field. He would come home on an RBI single
    by catcher Juan Apodaca to send the game into extra frames. The Thunder made
    short work of the situation from there as Daniel Brewer led off with a single,
    moved to second on sacrifice bunt, and home for the game winning run on
    consecutive singles. Right-handed reliever Omar Aguilar took the loss to fall
    to 2-6 as he gave up the three hits and one run in the 10th. Ryan
    Pope rebounded from blowing the save and earned the win and improved to 4-6.

  • Extra
    inning woes…
    The
    Aeros are 1-9 in extra inning games this year, putting them at the bottom of
    the Eastern League.


  • Hammering
    Henry…
    Center
    fielder Jordan Henry was a home run short of the cycle Monday as he hit a
    single, double and triple in his five plate appearances. It was the Houston
    native’s fifth three-hit game with the Aeros and 23rd multi-hit game
    of the season.

  • Beau
    knows…
    First
    baseman Beau Mills is currently tied with New Hampshire’s Adeiny Hechavarria
    for the third-best batting average in the past week. The Visalia, Calif. native
    is hitting .417 (10-24) over that stretch with three doubles, three RBI, and
    four runs scored. Mills is also fifth in the Eastern league with an on-base
    percentage of .517 in the past week
    .

  • Hit
    me again… and again…
    Outfielder
    John Drennen has had multiple base hits in five out of his past six games. The
    San Diego, Calif. native has been on a tear in August with 12 multiple hit
    games.

  • Playoff
    update…
    The
    Aeros remain 3.5 games behind Harrisburg as the Senators lost to New Hampshire
    8-7. Bowie improved its post season chances with a 2-0 win against Altoona. The
    Baysox are now three games in front of Akron. The Aeros now have an elimination
    number of five with seven games remaining in the season.

  • Player
    of the week…
    Left-handed pitcher Matt Packer is the
    winner of this week’s Akron Aeros Player of the Week award. Packer (1-2, 3.60
    ERA) earned his first win with the Aeros in Saturday’s 9-0 triumph over the
    Erie SeaWolves. The Germantown, Tenn. native celebrated his 23rd
    birthday in a big way as he gave up no runs on six hits and struck out eight
    batters over six innings of work. He is scheduled to start in the last game of
    the current series against Trenton.
