(Drew Pomeranz - Photo Credit: Will Bentzel and MILB.com)A short week for the Akron Aeros landed them right were they started the break at, seven back of the division leading Harrisburg Senators, who they split a four-game weekend set with.

Sailing with the Clippers is a weekly Monday morning installment that explores the week that was for Triple-A Columbus.
