After going 3-5 two weeks ago, the Akron Aeros got back on track over the past week, posting a 5-1 mark to move to 27-14 on the year. Two of those wins – Friday’s and Saturday’s – came with massive offensive breakouts. The Aeros annihilated the Richmond Flying Squirrels by scoring 16 runs on Friday and 15 on Saturday, and then they finished the sweep by winning 3-2 on Monday. They also split two games earlier this week on Tuesday and Wednesday in Erie (a 8-1 win and a 2-1 loss) and took the series opener in Trenton on Monday 5-1.
“There are a lot of good players here. They work hard and they play the game the right way and now they’re getting results from it,” Manager Chris Tremie said of his team’s development on Sunday. “I think it’s what was expected of themselves and they’re proving it.”
The Aeros won’t be home at all this week, as they spend Tuesday through Thursday in Trenton before headed to Erie again Friday through Monday. They will be back in Akron Tuesday, May 29 to host the Bowie Baysox. Akron is currently 5 games up on the Harrisburg Senators in the Western Division and 2 games up on the New Britain Rock Cats for best record in all of the Eastern League. Read More…
