Launching Off With The Aeros: 4/9/13 – 4/15/13
Things could have been better for the Akron Aeros over the past week, with the team dropping five of their six games and falling to the bottom of the Eastern League. The pitching was the culprit for the Aeros, as the team allowed almost a run an inning. Almost no offense in baseball can make up for that, even though Akron's offense did a decent job. To see who was hot in Akron and who was not, check out Launching Off With The Aeros, after the jump...

Aeros lose third straight, falling to Thunder 5-3
The Akron Aeros lost the series opener to the Trenton Thunder 5-3 at Arm & Hammer Park Monday night, giving the team their third straight loss. The Aeros are now 3-8 on the season and have lost five out of their last six games. Baseball took a backseat Monday after the tragic events in Boston, though. Donate blood. Donate money. Donate time. Keep the victims and heroes in your thoughts and prayers. Do whatever you want, but some things are more important than baseball.

Poor pitching and defense lead to Aeros' 9-5 loss
Akron pitchers continued their collective inability to prevent runs Sunday as the Akron Aeros lost 9-5 to the Bowie Baysox at Prince George's Stadium. The Baysox took three of the four games in the series while averaging seven runs per game. The Aeros have allowed 59 runs through 10 games, setting a pace that is nearly impossible for the offense to keep up with. The defending Eastern League champions have now lost seven of their first 10 games as they simply cannot keep opposing teams off the scoreboard.

Pitching falters again as Aeros fall 7-6
A terrible illness seems to be seeping down from the big league club and infecting the pitchers on the Akron Aeros' staff. Akron fell to the Bowie Baysox at Prince George's Stadium 7-6 after the team gave up seven runs for the second consecutive night. The Aeros have allowed 50 runs in nine games on the season -- a shocking 5.56 runs per game -- the key reason for their slow 3-6 start.

The B-Mets hit the ball hard all day and busted out for 14 hits and seven runs after starting the year with consecutive 2-1 wins.

The team is now 11-for-63 with 21 strikeouts on the year, but manager Edwin Rodriguez is not worried just yet with the slow start.
