After dropping a pair in a three game set with New Britain, the road swing continued to Harrisburg where the Aeros shocked the front-running Eastern League leaders with a series sweep. It didn't pull them out of the basement, but in one set they inched closer to .500 and put themselves within five games of the leaders, who now hold just a three game lead over Bowie.
We've been waiting for...

Zack MacPhee9th round pick third baseman Jordan Smith is hitting .308 (4-for-13) with a double and two stolen bases in his first four games playing in the Cape Cod League. It will probably be a few weeks before he is signed (if he is signed).

After losing four straight games, the Clippers played a tremendous week of baseball, going 6-1 and outscoring their opponents (Louisville Bats, Rochester Red Wings and Buffalo Bisons), 38-20. The team as a whole pitched good, not great, but aside from the first of the seven games, the offense would not need much help, getting back to its potent ways.
