The Akron Aeros were busy over the past week, squeezing 9 games into 7 days thanks to two doubleheaders against the Binghamton Mets on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Aeros fared pretty well, winning five of the nines games to move their record to 47-29. That mark is 8.5 games better than the Harrisburg Senators in the Western Division and 3 games better than the Trenton Thunder in the race for the best record in the Eastern League. The Aeros continue to pace the field in the Eastern League and – while they are still a long way off – would seem to be virtual locks to make the playoffs. It’s a good time to be an Akron Aeros fan.
The Aeros will be in town all week, hosting the Erie SeaWolves Tuesday through Friday, then the Richmond Flying Squirrels Saturday through Tuesday. After that, the Aeros will be on the road until the end of the All-Star Break on July 12.

For example, while T.J. House didn’t actually pitch on Tuesday, his stats are still being considered because of the circumstances. Only 5+ innings of the game were played on June 3, so half the game was played during this past week. Read More…
