Aerodynamics

  • 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
    away a free AirTran airline voucher to two lucky fans in attendance. Sunday
    will be the final Family Pack Sunday and will be sponsored by the Duquesne
    Incline where fans can buy four tickets, four hot dogs, four fountain drinks,
    and four bags of chips for only $48!
