Aeros sweep Fisher Cats with 7-2 win
On a cloudy, dreary night in Akron, and after a thirty-minute rain delay, the Aeros took on the Fisher Cats, getting the brooms out to sweep New Hampshire out of town with a 7-2 win. Aeros starter Toru Murata got into trouble right away when Fisher Cats second baseman Ryan Schimpf lined a single to right field with one out in the inning. Shortstop Kevin Nolan took no time at all to put the Fisher Cats on the board, drilling the second Murata offering he saw deep into the Aeros bullpen in right field. Down 2-0, Murata settled in after that.

Around The Farm: June 5, 2013
Baseball is a game of adjustments. The pitcher decides to throw a curveball after the batter hit his last fastball for a home run; a batter moves up in the box expecting an off-speed pitch; a shortstop moves toward second base because the batter has a knack for hitting the ball right back up the middle; any of these little shifts can change the outcome of a game. Sometimes players make big adjustments and it seems to lead to a breakthrough. To find out who might have made such a breakthrough and all you need to know about Wednesday in the minor leagues, join Jim Piascik and go Around The Farm.

Aeros blast past Fisher Cats 11-2
One night after pulling out a low-scoring, narrow victory, the Akron Aeros' hitting came alive and clobbered the New Hampshire Fisher Cats 11-2 on Wednesday night at Canal Park. Akron has won two straight games against New Hampshire, showing much more life at the plate and are much more consistent with their pitching as well. It was a slow start but the Aeros’ lineup made up for lost time, scoring four runs each in the seventh and eighth innings en route to eleven runs total.

Launching off with the Aeros: 5/28/13 – 6/3/13
The Akron Aeros won four of their six games over the past week and moved to 26-31 on the season. The team remains in fifth place in the Western Division -- six games out of first place -- though the Aeros began to climb out of the hole they dug by losing 12 of 15 from May 13-May 28. The Aeros won with decent starting pitching, a mostly lights-out bullpen, and the continued emergence of a top prospect. To find out which top prospect is emerging and all you need to know about the team, join Jim Piascik and go Launching off with the Aeros.

Whitenack's continued troubles sink Aeros 8-1
The Akron Aeros fell behind quickly Sunday afternoon as starting pitcher Robert Whitenack once again faltered, starting the team down the road to their 8-1 loss against the Reading Fightin Phils. Akron (26-31) managed to leave FirstEnergy Stadium with a series win, though the team obviously would have liked to sweep Reading (21-33) over the weekend. The team remains six games out of first place after the Erie SeaWolves lost as well Sunday against the Richmond Flying Squirrels.

Moncrief looking to hone standout tools, fulfill dream
Most of us who play baseball video games dream of seeing our name and likeness as a part of the game. Unlike most of us, Akron Aeros outfielder Carlos Moncrief has a chance at achieving that dream. Moncrief is playing at the Double-A level for the first time in his career and is doing a good job, though he has room for improvement. When he is on, though, Moncrief really puts on a show -- something he enjoys doing. Jim Piascik recently spoke with Moncrief about taking over games, his impressive power, and what he has to do over the rest of the season to be successful.

Around The Farm: May 30, 2013
Jim Piascik was at Akron's 15 inning win Thursday night and he only has one thing to report from it: it was long. Outside of a relatively boring game in Akron, the Mudcats made a late charge at a victory, some Lake County players showed some power, and a Columbus outfielder displayed why he may be a major league option at some point in 2013. To find out all you need to know about Thursday in the minor leagues, join Jim as he goes Around The Farm.

Aguilar, Moncrief's late-inning heroics give Aeros 15-inning win
Down 2-1 in the ninth inning, first baseman Jesus Aguilar tied the game with an opposite field home run, just out of right fielder Steven Souza Jr.'s reach at the "It's A Whole New Ballgame" sign. After the two teams went six more innings, it almost literally was. The Akron Aeros (24-30) won 3-2 Thursday night in 15 innings, defeating the Harrisburg Senators (27-27) on a bases-loaded walk-off single by right fielder Carlos Moncrief.

Around The Farm: May 29, 2013
Things were busy on the farm Wednesday, with all of Cleveland's affiliates in action and Lake County completing a doubleheader.

Launching off with the Aeros: 5/21/13 – 5/27/13
The Akron Aeros stumbled over the past week, dropping five of seven games and falling to a 22-29 record. After the team's recent string of losses, the Aeros are 10 games behind the Erie SeaWolves and only 1.5 games ahead of the last-place Altoona Curve. The Aeros may be fading, but that does not mean the entire team performed badly. A newly-added outfielder put on a show, a pitcher left his early season struggles far behind, and a top prospect just may be turning the corner. To find out who these players are and everything you need to know about the team, join Jim Piascik and go Launching off with the Aeros.

Holt's defense and all out approach has people taking notice
Canal Park received a makeover this past offseason with a brand new state-of-the-art video scoreboard, and Tyler Holt has put the video screen to good use. The Double-A Akron outfielder is a human highlight reel in the outfield crashing into walls and diving for balls, and it is that defensive ability and all out approach that has people taking notice.
