Aeros Stat of the Day:

·    The
Aeros have set a single-season high for most extra inning losses with 10. The
previous record was nine, set in 1997, the first year the Aeros were in Akron.


Aerodynamics

·      The
replay…
The Aeros jumped on top with a run in the second inning when first
baseman Miguel Perez doubled to left-center field and crossed home plate three
batters later on a ground out by left fielder Lucas Montero. Akron built their
lead in the fourth when Montero hit an RBI-single to score Perez again. Erie
responded in the fourth after Brandon Jones scored on a bases-loaded walk and
John Murrian hit a sacrifice fly to score Rawley Bishop to tie the game at 2-2.
The Aeros regained control and separated themselves from the SeaWovles in the
10th. With the bases full, Perez reached first base safely on a
fielding error by Brent Wyatt that allowed catcher Juan Apodaca and third
baseman Lonnie Chisenhall cross home and make the score 4-2. Murrian then led
off with a solo home run to bring the SeaWolves within one. After Matt Mansilla
singled, Wyatt ended the game with a walk-off home run to right field on a 3-2
pitch. Right-handed reliever Omar Aguilar took the loss and fell to 2-7 after
giving up the three runs and three hits in the final frame. Cory Hamilton
earned the win for Erie and improved to 4-1.

·     
Here’s Johnny… Outfielder John Drennen
recorded his team-leading 39th multiple hit game Saturday with a 3-4
performance. It’s the eighth time this season the San Diefo, Calif. native has
had three hits in a game. Drennen also had two doubles in the game and tied the
single season mark for the Aeros for the 21st time. Drennen has had
three games this season in which he has recorded two doubles. He’s currently in
a three-way tie for fourth in highest batting average in the Eastern League at
.303.

·     
Lefty Lucas… Left fielder and switch
hitter Lucas Montero has a .394 batting average with 12 hits in 33 at bats in
his last nine games. The speedy Montero has a double, triple, three RBI, and
two runs scored during that stretch.

·     
Mighty Miguel… Catcher and infielder
Miguel Perez recorded the Aeros only two RBI Friday night. The Caracas,
Venezuelan native went 2-4 on the night to bring his batting average up to a
current roster team-leading .357 average when facing the SeaWolves. The highest
batting average this year against Erie belongs to outfielder Jerad Head, who
was transferred to Columbus once again earlier in the week. Head’s batting
average against Erie was .419.

·     
Opposite September… The Aeros went a
perfect 7-0 in the month of September in to finish the regular season in 2009.
So far, Akron is still looking for their first win in the month. The team is
now 49-27 in regular season games played in September.

·     
Breaking even… Akron has never been this
close to .500 this late in the season since 1999 when the team finished 69-71.
The team did finish 71-71 in 1996 when the franchise was the Canton-Akron
Indians.

Akron gave up a two-run lead in extra innings on a pair of home runs to fall to
Erie 5-4 on Saturday night at Jerry Uht Park. The Aeros (70-70) are now 1-10 in
extra inning games this season. Erie (65-75) has now given Akron its fourth
straight loss.

 

The
Aeros jumped on top with a run in the second inning when first baseman Miguel
Perez doubled to left-center field and crossed home plate three batters later
on a ground out by left fielder Lucas Montero. Akron built their lead in the
fourth when Montero hit an RBI-single to score Perez again.

 

Erie
responded in the fourth after Brandon Jones scored on a bases-loaded walk and
John Murrian hit a sacrifice fly to score Rawley Bishop to tie the game at 2-2.

 

The
Aeros regained control and separated themselves from the SeaWovles in the 10th.
With the bases full, Perez reached first base safely on a fielding error by
Brent Wyatt that allowed catcher Juan Apodaca and third baseman Lonnie
Chisenhall cross home and make the score 4-2.

 

Murrian
then led off with a solo home run to bring the SeaWolves within one. After Matt
Mansilla singled, Wyatt ended the game with a walk-off home run to right field
on a 3-2 pitch.

Aeros Stat of the Day:

·    The
Aeros were eliminated from the post-season on Friday. It is the first time
since 2004 that Akron will not be in the playoffs and second time since 2001.


Aerodynamics

·      The
replay…
The SeaWolves scored first in the opening inning when Rawley Bishop
hit a sacrifice fly to score Brandon Douglas. Erie eventually made the score
2-0 as Douglas walked and then scored on a double by Brandon Jones. Erie broke
the game open in the sixth with a seven-run outburst to deflate the Aeros. The
SeaWolves scored the first two runs of the rally on a two-RBI single up the
middle by Kyle Peter that scored Billy Nowlin and Deik Scram. Brent Wyatt soon
followed that up with a three-run home run to make the score 7-0. Bishop hit in
the final two runs of the frame with a single to right center that scored
Douglas and Matt Mansilla. Akron eventually got on the board when third baseman
Lonnie Chisenhall tripled to right field before scoring on a throwing error by
Douglas in the seventh to set the score at 9-1. However, Erie would get the run
back in the eighth when Douglas scored on a Bishop ground out. The Aeros did
not go down easy as they put together a rally in the ninth as first baseman
Miguel Perez scored on another throwing error by Douglas. Shortstop Ron Rivas
highlighted the inning with a three-run home run to right field to make the
score 10-5, but that would be the closest Akron would get.

·     
Déjà vu… Left-handed starter Scott Barnes
to fall to 6-11 after he gave up five runs on five hits with eight strikeouts
against four walks in 5.2 innings pitched. Duane Below earned the win to
improve to 7-12 with one run on two hits with four strikeouts and one walk over
6.1 innings. The same two pitchers faced off last week at Canal Park resulting
in the same decision with a loss for Barnes and a win for Below.

·     
Chill… Chisenhall collected his 32nd
multi-hit game of the season Friday night. That puts the Newport, N.C. native
third on the active roster behind outfielder John Drennen with 38 and
outfielder Tim Fedroff with 33.

·     
Riveting Rivas… Rivas collected his first
hit with the Aeros and Double-A level with his three-run home run. It’s only
his fifth professional career home run and first since June 20 while in Lake
County.

·     
Down under… Outfielder Trent Baker also
recorded his first hit with the Aeros and Double-A level with a double against
Erie. The Brisbane, Australia native also scored a run.

·     
Above water… The Aeros still win to
secure a .500 season. Akron hasn’t had a losing season since 2004, the last
time they missed the post season, when they finished 63-78.



Aeros Recap 09/03: No Postseason for Aeros After 10-5 Defeat

Akron was eliminated from playoff contention as Erie defeated them 10-5
Friday night at Jerry Uht Park. It is the first time since 2004 that the
Aeros (70-69) will miss the post-season. The SeaWolves improve to
64-75.

The SeaWolves scored first in the opening inning when
Rawley Bishop hit a sacrifice fly to score Brandon Douglas. Erie
eventually made the score 2-0 as Douglas walked and then scored on a
double by Brandon Jones.

Erie broke the game open in the sixth
with a seven-run outburst to deflate the Aeros. The SeaWolves scored the
first two runs of the rally on a two-RBI single up the middle by Kyle
Peter that scored Billy Nowlin and Deik Scram. Brent Wyatt soon followed
that up with a three-run home run to make the score 7-0. Bishop hit in
the final two runs of the frame with a single to right center that
scored Douglas and Matt Mansilla.

Akron eventually got on the
board when third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall tripled to right field before
scoring on a throwing error by Douglas in the seventh to set the score
at 9-1. However, Erie would get the run back in the eighth when Douglas
scored on a Bishop ground out.

The Aeros did not go down easy as
they put together a rally in the ninth as first baseman Miguel Perez
scored on another throwing error by Douglas. Shortstop Ron Rivas
highlighted the inning with a three-run home run to right field to make
the score 10-5, but that would be the closest Akron would get.

Left-handed
starter Scott Barnes to fall to 6-11 after he gave up five runs on five
hits with eight strikeouts against four walks in 5.2 innings pitched.
Duane Below earned the win to improve to 7-12 with one run on two hits
with four strikeouts and one walk over 6.1 innings.

As a reminder
to all fans, since playoff tickets were complimentary, all playoff
tickets are now invalid and cannot be exchanged for any other games in
the future. There is also no refund for the $1 TicketReturn fee for any
playoff tickets ordered online.

Akron can still secure at least a
.500 record on the season with one win in the remaining three games. The
Aeros will attempt to do that Saturday with left-handed pitcher Eric
Berger (6-5, 4.70 ERA) battling the SeaWolves lefty Adam Wilk (2-0, 0.56
ERA). Join Joe Jastrzemski for Saturday’s internet-only broadcast
beginning at 6:50 p.m. on at http://www.akronaeros.com as football will bump
the Aeros on that day. For more information, please call the Akron Aeros

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.

 

Aerodynamics

  • 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.

Akron’s
playoff chances took a sharp decline as Trenton took the lead in the eighth
inning to win 3-2 at Waterfront Park. The Aeros (70-68) now have an elimination
number of one while the Thunder (81-57) is up by two games on New Hampshire.

 

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.

 

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.
However, he would take the no decision as reliever 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.

 

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. Elimination from the postseason could happen as early as Friday if the
Aeros lose or Bowie wins.

 

The
Aeros now travel to Erie to finish the regular season. Left-handed starter
Scott Barnes (6-10, 5.10 ERA) will head to the hill to battle fellow southpaw
Duane Below (6-12, 5.11 ERA) on Friday, with a first pitch time of 7:05 p.m.. Join Ken Carman for Friday’s internet-only broadcast
beginning at 6:50 p.m. on at www.akronaeros.com as football will bump
the Aeros on Friday and Saturday. For more information, please call the Akron

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.

 

Aerodynamics

  • 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

    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.
