Aeros Recap 09/05: Aeros Fall in Pitchers’ Duel, 1-0

Akron
lost a defensive battle with Erie and fell 1-0 in front of 2,432 fans Sunday
afternoon at Jerry Uht Park. The Aeros (70-71) have now lost five straight
overall and four straight to the SeaWolves (66-75).

 

The
lone run of the game came when Alden Carrithers scored in the fifth inning.
Carrithers singled to second base and advanced to second on a single by Brandon
Douglas. Brandon Jones doubled in the next at-bat and allowed Carrithers to
score.

went five innings, his longest outing of the season.
