AERODYNAMICS… 

? Evening the Score… The Aeros won in dramatic fashion Wednesday night by the final score of 5-4 over the Richmond Flying Squirrels as right fielder John Drennen delivered a game-winning RBI single in the bottom of the eighth inning. Second baseman Jason Kipnis began his big offensive night as well with a two-run homer in the first to give the hosts the quick advantage. Richmond finally responded against Akron starting pitcher Paolo Espino in the fifth inning to take a 4-2 thanks to a three-run shot by left fielder Clay Timpner. Aeros center fielder Jordan Henry and Kipnis provided back-to-back run-scoring singles later in that frame while Lonnie Chisenhall was hit by a pitch with one out in the eighth before stealing second and advancing to third on a throwing error by the catcher. Drennen then singled on a clutch 3-1 pitch to left field for the final run as Akron closer Bryce Stowell (1-0) earned the win with two shutout innings and Richmond reliever Andy Sisco (0-4) took the loss. 
? Sun Devil Pride… Kipnis had his eight-game Double-A hitting streak snapped in the opener Tuesday against the Flying Squirrels but responded furiously last night. His first-inning homer was his third for Akron and he now has a .342 batting average with nine runs scored in 10 games since his promotion from Class A Kinston. Both he and the eventual hero Drennen wore old-fashioned stirrups during the contest last night. Cleveland selected the current 23-year-old Kipnis out of Arizona State University in the second round of the June 2009 Draft and he now has a solid .307 batting average in 93 career minor league games. 
? The Closer… The most dominant pitcher for the Aeros over the past month has clearly been the reliever Stowell. He shut down Richmond again yesterday and has now delivered 19 consecutive scoreless innings to begin his Double-A career. He earned the promotion from the K-Tribe back on May 20th and has had an absolutely phenomenal combined season in the Cleveland Indians minor league system. The California, Irvine product is now 2-0 with six saves and a 0.81 ERA in 22 appearances (one start) with 65 strikeouts against only 16 walks and a .203 batting average against in 44.1 innings pitched. 
? Steal My Sunshine… The two stolen bases by Henry and Chisenhall Wednesday tied a team-high for most steals in a game this season. Akron now has six stolen bases against only one caught stealing since Henry was promoted to the team from Class A Kinston last week. The Aeros remain in last in the league with only 18 stolen bases this year, 10 fewer than the next worst team. 
? Catching Up… Akron catcher Damaso Espino also collected a double and a single during the victory Wednesday night at

Canal

Canal Park. He currently leads the team with a .314 batting average and his presence on the roster has been a catalyst for the recent Aeros success. In fact, active catchers Espino and Miguel Perez own a combined 27-20 record in games started this season.

AEROS STAT OF THE DAY:

Akron Aeros right fielder John Drennen, Wednesday night’s hero, now has a .327 batting average in 29 home games this season and also is batting .304 (31-for-104) with runners on base.

Recap 06/23: Drennen Delivers as Aeros Win 5-4

AKRON,
OH – Right fielder John Drennen provided a game-winning RBI single in the bottom
of the eighth inning to lead the Aeros to a 5-4 victory over the Richmond
Flying Squirrels Wednesday night at Canal Park. A crowd of 3,396 fans in
downtown Akron witnessed Drennen and second baseman Jason Kipnis lead the Akron
offense while both were oddly dressed in old-fashioned stirrups. The win helped
the Aeros (35-36) move just a game behind the Bowie Baysox for second place in
the Eastern League’s Western Division while the fifth-place Squirrels fell to
33-39 overall.

Speedy center fielder
Jordan Henry began the Akron half of the first inning with a bloop single to
left field. Kipnis followed immediately afterwards with a high arching home run
to right field against Richmond starter Felix Romero, giving the hosts a quick
2-0 edge.

Aeros starting
pitcher Paolo Espino and Romero cruised from there before the Squirrels
attacked in the top of the fifth. Richmond started the frame with a single,
double and a single to cut the deficit to just a single run. Left fielder Clay
Timpner then lined a 3-1 pitch from Espino to the right field bleachers for the
final runs of the game for the visitors.

The Akron offense
returned the favor in the bottom half of that fifth to tie the score at 4-4.
Damaso Espino lined a double down the left field line and Henry plated him with
a clutch two-out single straight up the middle. Henry advanced to second on the
throw home and Kipnis continued his fine evening at the plate with another RBI
hit for the fourth Aeros run.

The score remained
tied until the crucial eighth where with one out in the inning, Richmond
reliever Andy Sisco hit Akron third baseman Lonnie Chisenhall with a pitch. The
intimidating 6’9″ lefty then retired Matt McBride for the second out before
Chisenhall stole second and advanced to third on a throwing error by the
catcher. With a 2-1 count, Drennen then smacked the game-winner to left field
to score Chisenhall.

Closer Bryce Stowell
(1-0) shut out the Squirrels offense in the eighth and ninth innings for his
first win of the season as he has now delivered 19 straight scoreless frames to
start his Double-A career. Sisco (0-4) took the loss despite permitting just
the one hit in 1.1 innings of relief. Espino made his first start for Akron
since May 27th and only made one mistake on the Timpner home run,
allowing four runs in five innings with four strikeouts.

Henry and Espino each
collected two hits on the night while Kipnis also finished with a single and with
his third Aeros home run. The one-run victory was Akron’s 12th of the
year and the team is now 15-5 in their past 20 contests decided by two runs or
less.

The Aeros and the
Flying Squirrels start early at 12:05 p.m. Thursday afternoon in the rubber
match of this three-game series at Canal Park. Many local day camps will be on
hand for the contest as Akron continues their weeklong home stand. Highly
touted Aeros left-hander Nick Hagadone (1-0, 6.19 ERA) will look to rebound
from his rough past two starts against dominant Daryl Maday (8-3, 2.09 ERA) of
Richmond. Thursday’s game broadcast begins at 11:50 a.m. on Fox Sports 1350 AM
and at www.akronaeros.com. For more

? Sunday Survival… Akron avoided a three-game sweep at the hands of the Portland SeaDogs with a 3-2 victory at Hadlock Field Sunday afternoon. The Aeros struck first with a single run in the top of the fourth inning on a two-out RBI single by left fielder Tim Fedroff and the SeaDogs tied the frame in fifth on a sacrifice fly. Jerad Head then began his monster outing with a solo home run with one out in the top of the sixth to give the visitors a 2-1 advantage. Head did it again in the eighth, doubling the advantage with his second homer of the contest while Portland plated a final run in the eighth. Each team rallied but failed to score in the ninth as Akron starter Scott Barnes (3-6) earned the victory, SeaDogs reliever Ryne Miller (2-5) took the loss in allowing the first Head home run and new closer Bryce Stowell recorded his sixth save of the season with another scoreless appearance. 
? Red Storm… Barnes held down the fort for the Akron offense Sunday at Hadlock Field, delivering yet another solid start. He allowed just one run on two hits and five walks, and struck out eight batters to move into a tie for third in the Eastern League with 67 K’s on the season. The St. John’s University product has been lights out in his four starts during the month of June where he is 2-1 with a 2.93 ERA and has recorded an amazing total of 28 strikeouts with just seven walks in 21.2 innings pitched. 
? Double Trouble… The designated hitter Head had a career performance during Sunday’s close win against the Portland SeaDogs. He became the first Aero this season to homer twice in a game and it was his first multi-homer outing since July 14, 2006 with the short-season Class A Burlington Indians. With his two shots Sunday, all four of his Akron homers this season have now been of the solo variety. Head turned 27 years old last November and began the 2010 season with the Class AAA Columbus Clippers after appearing at seven different positions in the field and batting .282 in 98 contests with the Aeros last year. 
? Dazzling Debut… Second baseman Jason Kipnis won the first-ever Akron Aeros Player of the Week Award Monday for the week between June 14th and June 20th. He had a team-leading .375 (9-24) batting average in the six road games along with three doubles and two home runs. Since earning the promotion from the Class A Kinston Indians on June 10th, the 23-year-old Arizona State University product now has hit safely in all eight of his games for Akron. Cleveland selected the Illinois native in the second round of the June 2009 Draft and he ranks sixth in the Indians system with a .308 batting average this season. 
? Rocket J. Squirrel… The Aeros begin their home stand tonight for the opener of a mid-week series against the Richmond Flying Squirrels. The Squirrels are the newest team in the Eastern League and remain an affiliate of the San Francisco Giants after formerly being the Connecticut Defenders. Akron defeated the Defenders in the 2009 Eastern League Championship Series.
AEROS STAT OF THE NIGHT: 
The Portland Sea Dogs won two out of three against the Akron Aeros at Hadlock Field this past weekend, the first regular season series victory for Portland against Akron since 1999.

Recap 06/20: Head Homers Twice in Akrons 3-2 Victory

PORTLAND,
ME – Aeros designated hitter Jerad Head delivered a pair of home runs Sunday
afternoon at Hadlock Field in helping Akron avoid a three-game sweep against
the Portland Sea Dogs with a 3-2 win. His solo one-out homers in the sixth and
eighth innings helped the visitors break an early tie while the unpredictable
relieving corps secured the advantage in the final frames. The win was just the
second in the past eight days for the Aeros (34-35) as they finished off their
two week home-and-road series against the Sea Dogs (36-32) and the New
Hampshire Fisher Cats with a 7-5 record.

Portland’s
Kyle Weiland was perfect through three innings while his Akron counterpart
Scott Barnes only surrendered two walks and a single in the early pitcher’s
duel. The Aeros then pounced for a run in the fourth as Lonnie Chisenhall and
John Drennen each drew walks and hot-hitting Tim Fedroff collected a two-out
RBI single.

The
Sea Dogs tied the score at 1-1 in the bottom of the fifth by playing a small
ball style of offense. Juan Apodaca hit a leadoff single, Ohio native Will
Vazquez walked while a sacrifice bunt and a Nate Spears sacrifice fly
eventually scored Apodaca. Portland replaced Weiland with Ryne Miller in the
next half inning and after striking out Drennen, he permitted the first solo
shot to center field from Head.

The
2-1 advantage stayed until the eighth inning where Head was again the second
batter that reliever Mitch Herold faced, and he promptly drilled a 3-1 offering
into the left field bleachers. The final few frames would get dramatic as the
Sea Dogs added in one final run in the bottom half of that eighth on a
run-scoring single by Ryan Khoury. Akron collected three hits in the top of the
ninth but failed to score while closer Bryce Stowell then stranded a runner on
second base with two straight strikeouts to end the game.

Barnes (3-6) was
solid in earning the win, striking out eight Portland batters and allowing just
one run on two hits and five walks in five innings pitched. Miller (2-5) took
the loss by allowing the crucial second run of the ball game and the Akron
bullpen was tremendous for the first time all week. Connor Graham avoided
trouble in two frames while Wright allowed the final run in the eighth and new
closer Stowell recorded his sixth save.

Head’s home runs were
his third and fourth of the season in 22 games played for Akron and it was his
first multi-homer performance since July 14, 2006 with the short-season Class A
Burlington Indians. Chisenhall smacked three hits including a double while
Jason Kipnis extended his hitting streak to all eight of his Double-A games with
two singles.

The Aeros will be
travelling by bus overnight Sunday on their return back to the state of Ohio
and will enjoy a much-deserved rest day Monday. The team then returns to action
Tuesday night for the start of a weeklong home stand with a 7:05 p.m. first
pitch time at Canal Park against the Richmond Flying Squirrels. It is another
Two for Tuesday and athe second buyout night of the season fans can find FREE
ticket vouchers at any local Applebee’s restaurant.  Aeros lefty Eric Berger (3-4, 5.25 ERA) matches
up in the series opener against Richmond’s Mike MacDonald (1-6, 4.96 ERA). Monday
night’s game broadcast begins at 6:50 p.m. on Fox Sports 1350 AM and at www.akronaeros.com and for more

Aerodynamics Game #66: 06/17/10

GAME #66 ? THURSDAY, JUNE 17, 2010 ? 7:05 P.M.
ROAD GAME #32 ? MERCHANTSAUTO.COM STADIUM ? MANCHESTER, NH
AKRON AEROS (33-32) AT NEW HAMPSHIRE FISHER CATS (40-26)
CLEVELAND INDIANS                         TORONTO BLUE JAYS
AERODYNAMICS…
Tighten Up… Solid pitching again led the way again Wednesday for the Aeros at Merchantsauto.com Stadium in Manchester as Akron defeated the host New Hampshire Fisher Cats by the final score of 4-1. The Cats struck first against Aeros starter Eric Berger in the bottom of the fourth on an RBI single by Shawn Bowman. New left fielder Tim Fedroff then made the score 1-1 with a single to score DH Jerad Head in the fifth. In the seventh inning, Akron took the lead for good in the seventh as a Manny Mayorson error at short allowed catcher Miguel Perez to score the go-ahead run on a fielder’s choice. Two batters later, first baseman Matt McBride delivered a clutch two-run single to provide for the final margin. Chen-Chang Lee (4-3) earned the win in relief for Akron with two shutout innings while Drabek (7-6) took the loss and closer Bryce Stowell recorded the save.
?Good Berger… Berger has been dominant in his last four outings and limited the Fisher Cats offense through the first five innings Wednesday. He permitted the lone run on four hits and a walk with three strikeouts, finishing just three outs shy of yet another quality start. Dating back to May 30th at Binghamton, the University of Arizona product now has 24 strikeouts in 23.2 innings pitched with a 1.90 ERA. He joined the Aeros roster from extended spring training on April 26th and is now second on the team with 10 starts. The 22-year-old was 3-1 with a 2.67 ERA in six outings during the end of the 2009 regular season for Akron.
?Bryce Maximus… Akron’s bullpen continues to be stellar over the past six weeks and Stowell’s presence has been one of the highlights. He struck out four in two scoreless innings Wednesday night for his fifth save with Akron and the fifth of his brief minor league career. He has also now delivered 16 straight shutout frames since his promotion from Class A Kinston on May 20th and combined on the season, has 60 strikeouts against 16 walks in 41.1 innings pitched with a 0.87 ERA. The Indians selected Stowell in the 22nd round of the June 2008 Draft and he had a 4.76 ERA between Kinston and Class A Lake County in 2009.
?Mighty Matt… McBride’s two-run single in the seventh was the deciding blow Wednesday night as the new Akron first baseman continued his impressive offensive streak away from Canal Park. The 25-year-old native of Bethlehem, PA has now successfully reached base in all 26 of his road contests during the 2010 season. That is the longest such streak in Double-A baseball this year and McBride is batting .300 (30-100) with 17 runs scored, 14 RBI and all four of his home runs on the road.
?The Granite State… The Aeros will attempt to win their fifth straight series in the month of June with the rubber match of this three-game set tonight in Manchester. After the game, the team will embark upon the two-hour bus ride to Maine for a weekend get-together with the Portland Sea Dogs. Akron won two of three against the Sea Dogs last week at Canal Park.
AEROS STAT OF THE NIGHT:
The Akron Aeros pitching staff currently leads the Eastern League with 496 strikeouts this season. The team also has 306 K’s against just 135 walks in the last 41 games played.

Recap 06/16: Aeros Rally in Seventh for 4-1 Victory

MANCHESTER, NH – Looking to avoid a third straight loss, the Aeros retaliated with a three-run seventh inning en route to a 4-1 win against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats Wednesday night. The crowd of 3,654 at Merchantsauto.com Stadium witnessed a beautiful pitching duel between Akron starter Eric Berger and New Hampshire’s Kyle Drabek through the first six frames until the Aeros struck for three unearned runs against Drabek. The win helped the Aeros jump up above .500 for the season at 33-32 while the second-place Fisher Cats dropped to 40-26 overall.

 

Berger continued his impressive pitching and limited the New Hampshire offense until a double to left by shortstop Manny Mayorson started the fourth inning. Two batters later, Shawn Bowman recorded the RBI with a single to left as well, giving the hosts a 1-0 lead.

 

The Aeros responded against Drabek shortly thereafter, as DH Jerad Head began the top of the fifth with a single to center and advanced to second on a groundout. Left fielder Tim Fedroff then scored Head to tie the score at 1-1 with a clutch base hit of his own to left.

 

The score remained even until the top of the seventh where Drabek allowed a single and a walk to start a quick one-out rally. Mayorson followed with an error at short on a Jordan Henry fielder’s choice, allowing catcher Miguel Perez to score as the go-ahead run. After two pitching changes and another walk, first baseman Matt McBride greeted reliever Tim Magnuson with a two-run single to left-center, providing the final margin of the night.

 

The Akron bullpen was tremendous as Chen-Chang Lee (4-3) earned the win with two shutout innings with one hit and a pair of strikeouts. New Hampshire’s Kyle Drabek (7-6) took the loss despite recapturing the Eastern League lead in both innings pitched and strikeouts for the season. Closer Bryce Stowell then recorded his fifth save for the visitors with four strikeouts over the final two frames. Berger was three outs shy of his third straight quality start, permitting the lone run on four hits with three K’s in five innings.

 

No single Aero finished with multiple hits on the night but the two-run single from McBride in the deciding seventh inning was the difference. Kipnis also walked twice and stole a base for the first time in his brief Double-A career.

 

The Aeros hope to improve to 5-0 in their five series in June with the rubber match Thursday night at Merchantsauto.com Stadium. First pitch will be at 7:05 p.m. and Akron will send lefty Kelvin De La Cruz (1-3, 5.35 ERA) to the mound against Ronald Uviedo (1-2, 3.06 ERA) of the Fisher Cats. Join Ken Carman for Thursday night’s game broadcast, beginning at 6:50 p.m. on Fox Sports 1350 AM and at www.akronaeros.com. For more information, please call the Aeros at (330) 253-5151.

Aerodynamics Game #65: 06/16/10

GAME #65 ? WEDNESDAY, JUNE 16, 2010 ? 7:05 P.M.
ROAD GAME #31 ? MERCHANTSAUTO.COM STADIUM ? MANCHESTER, NH
AKRON AEROS (32-32) AT NEW HAMPSHIRE FISHER CATS (40-25)
CLEVELAND INDIANS                     TORONTO BLUE JAYS

AERODYNAMICS…

? Gone Fishin’… The New Hampshire Fisher Cats responded to every single Aeros rally Tuesday night at Merchantsauto.com Stadium in Manchester en route to a 6-3 victory. Akron starting pitcher Scott Barnes permitted an RBI single in the first and the score remained at 1-0 until the fifth. Aeros DH Jerad Head began that frame with his second home run of the year but the Fisher Cats responded again to take a one-run lead. Jason Kipnis led off the sixth with another homer but New Hampshire catcher Brian Jeroloman promptly provided a clutch two-run base hit. Akron center fielder Jordan Henry made it 4-3 with a groundout in the seventh but Shawn Bowman retaliated with a homer to provide for the final margin. Barnes (2-6) took the loss in allowing four runs in 5.2 innings while Adrian Martin (2-1) earned the win and Danny Farquhar recorded his league-leading 15th save. 
? Jovial Jason… The home run by Kipnis was his first in his brief Double-A career after earning the promotion from Class A Kinston last Thursday. The second baseman smacked 12 doubles and six home runs with the K-Tribe earlier this year and the Arizona State product now has a .302 batting average and a .381 on-base percentage in 86 career minor league games. The Cleveland Indians selected the 23-year-old Kipnis in the second round (63rd overall) of the June 2009 Draft.
? Catch Me If You Can… Catcher Damaso Espino finished with three singles Tuesday, highlighting one of the most surprising developments over the past month for the Aeros. Both Espino and Miguel Perez both joined the roster in early May as veterans with Double-A experience and have done very well so far. Perez appeared in 87 games for Altoona between 2008 and 2009 while Espino was the back-up to Eastern League MVP Carlos Santana last season. The production has been incredibly consistent this year as the two backstops have combined to hit .344 (44-128) in their 40 games played along with 13 multi-hit performances. 
? What a Relief… The Akron bullpen has been tremendous recently despite the two runs allowed in the seventh inning Tuesday. Aeros relievers have led a pitching revival by posting a 2.08 ERA over the past 31 games with a 2.6 strikeout-to-walk ratio and a 1.22 WHIP. Bryce Stowell has yet to allow a run in 14 innings pitched since his promotion on May 20th, Omar Aguilar has a 1.56 ERA in the seventh and eighth innings combined and Connor Graham has permitted just one earned run in his 10 appearances as a reliever. Following a doubleheader May 12th at Reading, the bullpen had a 5.18 ERA for the season. 
? Bear Down… Red-hot lefty starter Eric Berger will be on the mound tonight for Akron as he looks to defeat highly regarded New Hampshire prospect Kyle Drabek for the second time in a week. Meanwhile, a loss tonight in Manchester would mark the first series loss by the Aeros since May 24-27 against Altoona and would bring the team’s record below .500 for the season. 
AEROS STAT OF THE NIGHT:
The two home runs Tuesday night in Manchester tied a season-high for the ninth time. No individual Akron Aero has had a multi-homer game, despite the 38 overall for the team this season.
