Aeros scrape out extra inning win, 3-2
On a night where the game was long, hits were plentiful, and runs were few and far between, the Akron Aeros found a way to scrape past the New Britain Rock Cats 3-2 in 12 innings on Thursday night. The Aeros notched their second consecutive win behind a balanced attack from their offense, as eight of the ten Aeros batters had a hit, none bigger than the two delivered by Ben Copeland and Roberto Perez in the game’s final frame.
