Aeros Stat of the Day:
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.
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
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
