After going 6-0 over the past week, there is no doubt that the Akron Aeros are on a roll. The Aeros took the final two games of their set in Bowie Tuesday and Wednesday before sweeping the Altoona Curve at home over the weekend. That sweep included taking both games of a doubleheader on Sunday in walk-off fashion (including a walk-off wild pitch – not something you see every day). The Aeros then began their 4-game set against the Binghamton Mets with another dramatic, late innings victory.
The Aeros are now 15-6 on the season, easily in 1st place in the Western Division and percentage points ahead of the Reading Phillies for best record in the Eastern League. Akron continues to win games with their superb pitching (2.26 ERA, 2.66 FIP, 2.91 SO:BB). The offense continues to drag on the year, however (.688 OPS, .325 wOBA) and could eventually spell trouble for the Aeros.
Akron will continue their 4-game set hosting Binghamton through Thursday this week before headed out to Bowie to play the Baysox Friday the 4th through Sunday the 6th. The Aeros then will return home for a 7-game homestand. Read More…
