Aeros Stat of the Day:

  • With one more win, the Aeros will
    secure a sixth-straight season of having a winning percentage of .500. Akron
    has not had a losing record since 2004 when they finished 63-78.

  • The replay… Akron struck first in their
    opening at-bat for the third-straight game. Center fielder Jordan Henry led off
    with a single through the hole at shortstop. Henry eventually stole second,
    advanced to second on a ground out, and scored on a single up the middle by
    third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall. Trenton answered as Justin Christian led off
    with a home run to left field. The Thunder would take a 2-1 lead in the second
    inning when Marcos Vechionacci scored on a fielding error by first baseman
    Miguel Perez. Their lead would increase to 3-1 after Christian hit his second
    homer of the game in the fifth inning. The Aeros attempted to come back in the
    sixth as designated hitter Beau Mills singled to right-center field to score
    Chisenhall. Akron could not get any closer as they left two on base to end the
    frame. The Thunder added an insurance run in the eighth as Daniel Brewer
    singled in Christian for the final 4-2 count.

  • Battery
    and Bryson…
    Right-handed
    starter Rob Bryson (1-1) took the loss despite allowing only two runs (one
    earned) on one hit with two strikeouts. It was the Newark, Del. native’s second
    start this year with the Aeros and longest outing this season. Andrew Brackman
    (4-7) earned the win after he allowed two runs on five hits in six innings of
    work.

  • Back
    and forth…
    Akron
    is once again 3.5 games back of the Senators for the wild card and has an
    elimination number of three with five games remaining in the regular season.
    Bowie was also a winner Wednesday and is three games ahead of the Aeros. If
    Akron loses three games, the wild card leader wins three games, or any mixture
    of Akron losing and the wild card leader winning equal to three, the Aeros will
    be eliminated.

  • Half-time… The half game of the 3.5 games separating the Aeros and Harrisburg
    will be made up on Friday when the Senators play a doubleheader against the
    Binghamton Mets. The first game will be a continuation of a suspended game from
    August 12.

  • Consolation
    prize…
    Despite
    being able to tie, at best, this current series with Trenton, the Aeros have
    won the season series over the Thunder with their win on Tuesday night.

  • King
    of the hill…
    Left-handed pitcher Matt Packer won this
    week’s Akron Aeros Player of the Week award after he earned his first win with
    the Aeros in Saturday’s 9-0 triumph over Erie. 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. It was the most
    strikeouts Packer has had in an appearance since sitting down nine batters on
    July 6 in a game against the Lansing Lugnuts as a member of the Lake County
    Captains. This week, the separate Eastern League Player-Pitcher of the Week
    Awards went to Portland’s Ryan Lavarnway and Reading’s Michael Cisco,
    respectively.
