Aeros Stat of the Day:

  • The Aeros lost their fourth game of
    the season Thursday when leading after seven innings, tying Altoona for second
    in that category. New Hampshire is first with only one loss.

  • The replay… The Thunder struck initially in
    the first inning as Austin Romine doubled in Daniel Brewer for a quick 1-0
    lead. Akron did not score until the fourth inning when they took advantage of a
    Trenton miscue. Right fielder John Drennen started the Aeros offense with a
    walk and advanced to second on a single by catcher Miguel Perez. With left fielder
    Lucas Montero batting, Drennen and Perez both advanced 90 feet on a wild pitch.
    A fielding error by Trenton allowed Montero to reach safely while Drennen and
    Perez scored to give Akron a 2-1 lead. Trenton regained control in the eighth
    frame as Justin Christian hit his third home run in two games to lead off the
    inning. An RBI single by Brewer gave the hosts a 3-2 lead. Connor Graham blew
    the save and took the loss to fall to 3-6. Pat Venditte earned his first win
    and only decision with Trenton.

  • Repeat
    performance…
    The
    Aeros right-handed starter Matt Packer turned in his second-straight excellent
    performance as the reigning Akron Aeros Player of the Week allowed one run on
    five hits while striking out eight against two walks in seven innings of work.
    Packer was in line to record the win but took a no decision as Trenton came
    back to defeat the Aeros.

  • Road
    Warrior…
    Center
    fielder Jordan Henry started off the eight-game road trip to end the season in
    a favorable way. The Houston, Texas native weathered the Trenton Thunder storm
    hitting for an average of .500 by going 8-16 at the plate with three walks, a
    double, triple, and three runs scored.

  • Keep
    hitting…
    As the
    season draws toward a close, Akron currently remains at the top of the Eastern
    League in team batting average. The Aeros currently are hitting .274 for the
    season. The Binghamton Mets come in second in that category with a batting
    average of .269.

  • Changing
    tides…
    Akron did
    receive some help from Harrisburg as they lost 3-2 to New Hampshire, but the Western
    Division wild card lead now belongs to Bowie after their 7-2 victory over
    Altoona. The Aeros are four games behind the Baysox with four games to play. In
    order to make the playoffs, Akron must win out with a sweep of Erie and hope
    that the Baysox also get swept by Richmond and Harrisburg loses all five games
    against Binghamton. If that were to happen, Akron would travel to Bowie for a
    play-in game against the Baysox for the wild card spot to face the Altoona
    Curve in the Western Division Championship Series.

  • Sinking SeaWolves… The Aeros have more wins against the Erie SeaWolves this season
    than against any other team in the Eastern League. No other team has more wins
    against the SeaWolves this season. Akron is 13-5 against Erie in the 2010
    campaign, but only three of those wins have come at Jerry Uht Park. The
    SeaWolves defeated the Aeros at Canal Park last Sunday in a battle of today’s
    starters. It was the first win for Erie in Canal Park since May 24, 2009.
