Akron Aeros (67-64) vs. Erie SeaWolves (59-72)
Aeros Stat of the Day:
Aeros winning percentage in shutout games is .733, currently the best in the
Eastern League. Akron has played in 15 shutout games and has won 11, second
most in the league.
- Goose egg… The Aeros defeated Erie by a
12-0 count Thursday for their 11th shutout of the season. Akron
jumped out to 6-0 lead thanks to home runs by third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall,
right fielder John Drennen, and left fielder Tim Fedroff, and alert base
running by second baseman Jason Kipnis who came in from second after a throwing
error. Akron poured on the runs in the seventh in a rally started by designated
hitter Jerad Head when he hit an RBI single up the middle to score center
fielder Jordan Henry from second. Mills then walked to load the bases to set up
Perez. The Caracas, Venezuela native singled to score Kipnis, but an error on
Erie’s left fielder Brandon Jones allowed Head to come home. Drennen made it
11-0 with a deep double to left-center field that brought home Mills and Perez.
Erie hurt itself again when Pounds threw the ball wide of first base and
Drennen advanced home from second to make it 12-0. SeaWolves starter Anthony
Shawler took the loss and is now 4-3.
- White’s out… Right-handed starter Alex
White had a fantastic outing as he improved to 8-7 with three hits, five
strikeouts and one walk. He threw seven shutout innings, matching his longest
outing of the season. The former Tar Heel has a team leading 12 quality starts
of fewer than three earned runs in at least six innings pitched. Relievers Nick
Hagadone and Rob Bryson came in and pitched an inning each with Bryson giving
up the only other hit of the game.
- Lunar Lonnie… With Chisenhall’s home run
in the first inning Thursday, The Newport, N.C. native now has 17 round trips
and has tied current Columbus Clipper Matt McBride for the most by any Aeros
player this season. It is Chisenhall’s second home run of the week after
hitting one on Tuesday in Bowie.
- Taking advantage… The Aeros have scored
four runs in the past three games on plays where opponents have made an error.
Akron’s opponents in the past three games have committed a total of nine
errors, the most over any three-game stretch this season.
- No love…The Aeros didn’t receive any help
tonight in the Western Division wild card race as Bowie came back to defeat New
Britain and Harrisburg defeated Trenton. Akron remains 3.5 games back of the
second-place Senators, but now has an elimination number in single digits at
nine with 11 games to play.
- Number one fireworks… The final fireworks
show of the season will follow Friday’s game against Erie and will be sponsored
by KeyBank. On Saturday, the first 1,000 fans will receive a foam finger
giveaway sponsored by the Akron Canton Airport. The airport will also be giving
