  •  Part
    One…
    The first
    game ended up being a two-day pitchers’ duel as the only run of the ballgame
    came in Bowie’s sixth inning when Ryan Adams hit a home run over the left field
    fence. As a result, Chen-Chang Lee took the loss and fell to 5-4 despite giving
    up only two other hits and striking out five batters against one walk in 3.1
    innings of work. Brandon Cooney, now 3-2, earned the win after he pitched the
    sixth inning in relief with just one hit. Pedro Beato recorded his 16th
    save of the season. Both teams combined for eight hits with Akron tallying five
    and Bowie three.
  • The
    sequel…
    The
    Aeros finally broke out of their offensive slump in the third inning of game
    two. Shortstop Cristo Arnal and centerfielder Tim Fedroff both reached safely
    on separate fielding errors to start the rally. Second baseman Jason Kipnis
    followed with a single to right field scoring Arnal and sending Fedroff to
    third. Third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall capped the inning with a home run to
    left-center field to put Akron up 4-0. Bowie scored in the bottom of the third
    when Jonathan Tucker scored during Xavier Avery’s swipe of second base. Akron
    got the run back in the next inning when Arnal hit a solo home run to left
    field. Errors plagued the Baysox once again in the fifth as right fielder Jerad
    Head scored on a throwing error by Greg Miclat and made the score 6-1. Two
    Bowie runs were scored in the sixth on two-straight bases loaded walks to put
    the game at its 6-3 final.
  • Cruzin’…
    Left-handed
    starter Kelvin De La Cruz earned the win to improve to 5-6. The southpaw gave
    up one run on four hits with six strikeouts against two walks over five innings
    of work. Bowie starter Ryohei Tanaka took the loss to fall to 6-12 after five
    runs scored (one earned) on seven hits over four innings. Right-handed reliever
    Omar Aguilar then came in to get the final out of the sixth and retired the
    side in the seventh to record his sixth save.
  • Arnal
    night…
    With
    infielder Cristo Arnal’s home run Tuesday night, the Caracas, Venezuela native
    has now hit safely in 10 of his past 12 games. In his past 10 games, Arnal is
    10-32 for a .313 average with a double, triple, home run, four RBI, and eight
    runs.
  • Last
    stand…

    enters tonight 3.5 games back of second-place Harrisburg for the wild card.

    against the Baysox is Akron’s last against either club this regular season.
