Aeros Recap 09/03: No Postseason for Aeros After 10-5 Defeat

Akron was eliminated from playoff contention as Erie defeated them 10-5
Friday night at Jerry Uht Park. It is the first time since 2004 that the
Aeros (70-69) will miss the post-season. The SeaWolves improve to
64-75.

The SeaWolves scored first in the opening inning when
Rawley Bishop hit a sacrifice fly to score Brandon Douglas. Erie
eventually made the score 2-0 as Douglas walked and then scored on a
double by Brandon Jones.

Erie broke the game open in the sixth
with a seven-run outburst to deflate the Aeros. The SeaWolves scored the
first two runs of the rally on a two-RBI single up the middle by Kyle
Peter that scored Billy Nowlin and Deik Scram. Brent Wyatt soon followed
that up with a three-run home run to make the score 7-0. Bishop hit in
the final two runs of the frame with a single to right center that
scored Douglas and Matt Mansilla.

Akron eventually got on the
board when third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall tripled to right field before
scoring on a throwing error by Douglas in the seventh to set the score
at 9-1. However, Erie would get the run back in the eighth when Douglas
scored on a Bishop ground out.

The Aeros did not go down easy as
they put together a rally in the ninth as first baseman Miguel Perez
scored on another throwing error by Douglas. Shortstop Ron Rivas
highlighted the inning with a three-run home run to right field to make
the score 10-5, but that would be the closest Akron would get.

Left-handed
starter Scott Barnes to fall to 6-11 after he gave up five runs on five
hits with eight strikeouts against four walks in 5.2 innings pitched.
Duane Below earned the win to improve to 7-12 with one run on two hits
with four strikeouts and one walk over 6.1 innings.

As a reminder
to all fans, since playoff tickets were complimentary, all playoff
tickets are now invalid and cannot be exchanged for any other games in
the future. There is also no refund for the $1 TicketReturn fee for any
playoff tickets ordered online.

Akron can still secure at least a
.500 record on the season with one win in the remaining three games. The
Aeros will attempt to do that Saturday with left-handed pitcher Eric
Berger (6-5, 4.70 ERA) battling the SeaWolves lefty Adam Wilk (2-0, 0.56
ERA). Join Joe Jastrzemski for Saturday’s internet-only broadcast

Game #139 Friday, September 3, 2010 7:05 P.M.
Away Game #68 Jerry Uht Park Erie, PA

Akron Aeros (70-68) at Erie SeaWolves (63-75)

Cleveland Indians            
     Detroit Tigers

Aeros Stat of the Day:

  • The Aeros lost their fourth game of
    the season Thursday when leading after seven innings, tying Altoona for second
    in that category. New Hampshire is first with only one loss.

 

Aerodynamics

  • The replay… The Thunder struck initially in
    the first inning as Austin Romine doubled in Daniel Brewer for a quick 1-0
    lead. Akron did not score until the fourth inning when they took advantage of a
    Trenton miscue. Right fielder John Drennen started the Aeros offense with a
    walk and advanced to second on a single by catcher Miguel Perez. With left fielder
    Lucas Montero batting, Drennen and Perez both advanced 90 feet on a wild pitch.
    A fielding error by Trenton allowed Montero to reach safely while Drennen and
    Perez scored to give Akron a 2-1 lead. Trenton regained control in the eighth
    frame as Justin Christian hit his third home run in two games to lead off the
    inning. An RBI single by Brewer gave the hosts a 3-2 lead. Connor Graham blew
    the save and took the loss to fall to 3-6. Pat Venditte earned his first win
    and only decision with Trenton.

  • Repeat
    performance…
    The
    Aeros right-handed starter Matt Packer turned in his second-straight excellent
    performance as the reigning Akron Aeros Player of the Week allowed one run on
    five hits while striking out eight against two walks in seven innings of work.
    Packer was in line to record the win but took a no decision as Trenton came
    back to defeat the Aeros.

  • Road
    Warrior…
    Center
    fielder Jordan Henry started off the eight-game road trip to end the season in
    a favorable way. The Houston, Texas native weathered the Trenton Thunder storm
    hitting for an average of .500 by going 8-16 at the plate with three walks, a
    double, triple, and three runs scored.

  • Keep
    hitting…
    As the
    season draws toward a close, Akron currently remains at the top of the Eastern
    League in team batting average. The Aeros currently are hitting .274 for the
    season. The Binghamton Mets come in second in that category with a batting
    average of .269.

  • Changing
    tides…
    Akron did
    receive some help from Harrisburg as they lost 3-2 to New Hampshire, but the Western
    Division wild card lead now belongs to Bowie after their 7-2 victory over
    Altoona. The Aeros are four games behind the Baysox with four games to play. In
    order to make the playoffs, Akron must win out with a sweep of Erie and hope
    that the Baysox also get swept by Richmond and Harrisburg loses all five games
    against Binghamton. If that were to happen, Akron would travel to Bowie for a
    play-in game against the Baysox for the wild card spot to face the Altoona
    Curve in the Western Division Championship Series.

  • Sinking SeaWolves… The Aeros have more wins against the Erie SeaWolves this season
    than against any other team in the Eastern League. No other team has more wins
    against the SeaWolves this season. Akron is 13-5 against Erie in the 2010
    campaign, but only three of those wins have come at Jerry Uht Park. The
    SeaWolves defeated the Aeros at Canal Park last Sunday in a battle of today’s
    starters. It was the first win for Erie in Canal Park since May 24, 2009.

 

Aeros Recap 09/02: Aeros Fall to Thunder 3-2

Akron’s
playoff chances took a sharp decline as Trenton took the lead in the eighth
inning to win 3-2 at Waterfront Park. The Aeros (70-68) now have an elimination
number of one while the Thunder (81-57) is up by two games on New Hampshire.

 

The
Thunder struck initially in the first inning as Austin Romine doubled in Daniel
Brewer for a quick 1-0 lead.

miscue. Right fielder John Drennen started the Aeros offense with a walk and
advanced to second on a single by catcher Miguel Perez. With left fielder Lucas
Montero batting, Drennen and Perez both advanced 90 feet on a wild pitch. A
fielding error by Trenton allowed Montero to reach safely while Drennen and
Perez scored to give Akron a 2-1 lead.

 

Trenton
regained control in the eighth frame as Justin Christian hit his third home run
in two games to lead off the inning. An RBI single by Brewer gave the hosts a
3-2 lead.

 

The
Aeros right-handed starter Matt Packer turned in his second-straight excellent
performance as the reigning Akron Aeros Player of the Week allowed one run on
five hits while striking out eight against two walks in seven innings of work.
However, he would take the no decision as reliever Connor Graham blew the save
and took the loss to fall to 3-6. Pat Venditte earned his first win and only
decision with Trenton.

 

Akron
did receive some help from Harrisburg as they lost 3-2 to New Hampshire, but
the Western Division wild card lead now belongs to Bowie after their 7-2 victory
over Altoona. The Aeros are four games behind the Baysox with four games to
play. Elimination from the postseason could happen as early as Friday if the
Aeros lose or Bowie wins.

 

The
Aeros now travel to Erie to finish the regular season. Left-handed starter
Scott Barnes (6-10, 5.10 ERA) will head to the hill to battle fellow southpaw
Duane Below (6-12, 5.11 ERA) on Friday, with a first pitch time of 7:05 p.m.. Join Ken Carman for Friday’s internet-only broadcast

    has not had a losing record since 2004 when they finished 63-78.

 

Aerodynamics

  • The replay… Akron struck first in their
    opening at-bat for the third-straight game. Center fielder Jordan Henry led off
    with a single through the hole at shortstop. Henry eventually stole second,
    advanced to second on a ground out, and scored on a single up the middle by
    third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall. Trenton answered as Justin Christian led off
    with a home run to left field. The Thunder would take a 2-1 lead in the second

    Miguel Perez. Their lead would increase to 3-1 after Christian hit his second
    homer of the game in the fifth inning. The Aeros attempted to come back in the
    sixth as designated hitter Beau Mills singled to right-center field to score
    Chisenhall. Akron could not get any closer as they left two on base to end the
    frame. The Thunder added an insurance run in the eighth as Daniel Brewer
    singled in Christian for the final 4-2 count.

  • Battery
    and Bryson…
    Right-handed
    starter Rob Bryson (1-1) took the loss despite allowing only two runs (one
    earned) on one hit with two strikeouts. It was the Newark, Del. native’s second
    start this year with the Aeros and longest outing this season. Andrew Brackman
    (4-7) earned the win after he allowed two runs on five hits in six innings of
    work.

  • Back
    and forth…
    Akron
    is once again 3.5 games back of the Senators for the wild card and has an
    elimination number of three with five games remaining in the regular season.
    Bowie was also a winner Wednesday and is three games ahead of the Aeros. If
    Akron loses three games, the wild card leader wins three games, or any mixture
    of Akron losing and the wild card leader winning equal to three, the Aeros will
    be eliminated.

  • Half-time… The half game of the 3.5 games separating the Aeros and Harrisburg
    will be made up on Friday when the Senators play a doubleheader against the
    Binghamton Mets. The first game will be a continuation of a suspended game from
    August 12.

  • Consolation
    prize…
    Despite
    being able to tie, at best, this current series with Trenton, the Aeros have
    won the season series over the Thunder with their win on Tuesday night.

  • King
    of the hill…
    Left-handed pitcher Matt Packer won this
    week’s Akron Aeros Player of the Week award after he earned his first win with
    the Aeros in Saturday’s 9-0 triumph over Erie. The Germantown, Tenn. native
    celebrated his 23rd birthday in a big way as he gave up no runs on
    six hits and struck out eight batters over six innings of work. It was the most
    strikeouts Packer has had in an appearance since sitting down nine batters on
    July 6 in a game against the Lansing Lugnuts as a member of the Lake County
    Captains. This week, the separate Eastern League Player-Pitcher of the Week
    Awards went to Portland’s Ryan Lavarnway and Reading’s Michael Cisco,
    respectively.

Aeros Recap 09/01: Aeros Thunderstruck by Trenton 4-2

The Aeros handed away the game they earned Tuesday in the wild card standings
as they lost to Trenton 4-2 Wednesday at Waterfront Park. The loss brings Akron

fielding error by first baseman Miguel Perez. Their lead would increase to 3-1
after Christian hit his second homer of the game in the fifth inning.

 

The
Aeros attempted to come back in the sixth as designated hitter Beau Mills

Aerodynamics

  • Light of Day… The Aeros were triumphant over
    Trenton 10-4 as Akron scored in each of its first five innings. Akron started hot as second baseman Jason Kipnis sparked
    the first inning with a triple to right field. After a walk by third baseman
    Lonnie Chisenhall, designated hitter Jerad Head hit an RBI single to score
    Kipnis. First baseman Beau Mills then highlighted the inning with a three-run
    home run to right field. Trenton cut the Aeros lead to 4-2 after a pair of RBI
    singles in the bottom of the first. The Aeros added to their advantage in the
    next two frames. A Kipnis double allowed right fielder Lucas Montero to score from
    second in the second and Mills scored on a sacrifice bunt by catcher Juan
    Apodaca in the third. However, the Thunder responded once again on another pair
    of RBI singles by Daniel Brewer and Romine to make the score 6-4. It was the
    closest Trenton would get as Akron broke the game open in the following couple
    of innings. Head hit an RBI-double to score center fielder Jordan Henry and
    Chisenhall in the fourth and Montero followed with a two-RBI single through the
    hole at second base to plate shortstop Cristo Arnal and Apodaca in the fifth
    for a 10-4 Aeros lead. Both teams remained scoreless from there on out.

    recorded a hit in 17 of his past 19 games. During that stretch, the Newport,
    N.C. native is 25-66 for a .379 average. Chisenhall has also reached first base
    safely in 20 out of his past 21 games.

  • Back
    and forth…
    With the win, Akron gains a game in the Western Division wild card
    chase as Harrisburg fell 1-0 to New Hampshire in extra innings and Altoona
    defeated Bowie 9-1. The Aeros are now 2.5 back of the second-place Senators and
    two games behind the Baysox with six crucial games remaining in the regular
    season. With the Curve’s win, Altoona clinched the Western Division regular
    season title and will be have home field advantage against the wild card
    winner.

  • 700
    Club…
    The Aeros
    congratulate former skipper Brad Komminsk on his 700th victory as
    manager. Komminsk recorded the milestone win during Bowie’s 2-0 win over
    Altoona on Monday. Komminsk was in Akron from 2002 to 2003 and won 244 games
    and led the Aeros to the Eastern League championship in 2003, the first in
    franchise history.

    batters over six innings of work. He is scheduled to start in the last game of
    the current series against Trenton.

Aeros Recap 08/30: Extra Innings Doom Aeros Again

Extra
innings continued to be a bad omen for the Aeros as they fell to Trenton 4-3 in
10 innings Monday at Waterfront Park. The loss puts Akron (69-66) closer to
elimination from the post-season while the Thunder (79-56) stays ahead of New
Hampshire for first place in the Eastern Division.

Aerodynamics: LHP Matt Packer Named Aeros Player of the Week

Left-handed
pitcher Matt Packer is the winner of this week’s Akron Aeros Player of the Week
award, the team announced today. Packer (1-2, 3.60 ERA) earned his first win
with the Aeros in Saturday’s 9-0 triumph over the Erie SeaWolves. The
Germantown, Tenn. native celebrated his 23rd birthday in a big way
as he gave up no runs on six hits and struck out eight batters over six innings
of work.

 

Packer
was promoted from Class A Lake County on August 3 where he finished 8-5 with
one save and a league-leading 1.60 ERA in 95.2 innings pitched. In five games
and four starts with the Aeros, he has allowed 13 runs (12 earned) on 30 hits
with 23 strikeouts against seven walks in 30 innings pitched.

 

The Akron
Aeros will award their Player of the Week honor to an individual player every
Monday for the rest of the season. In the case of a Monday closure of the team
offices, the Aeros will announce the award Tuesday. Akron outfielder Jerad Head
won the award last week. This week, the separate Eastern League Player-Pitcher
of the Week Awards went to Portland’s Ryan Lavarnway and Reading’s Michael
Cisco, respectively.
