- Akron broke a string of four
games of scoring no runs or one run with Tuesday’s 6-3 victory over the Baysox.
The Aeros are 10-47 when scoring three runs or less.
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.
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.
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.
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
enters tonight 3.5 games back of second-place Harrisburg for the wild card.
