Launching off with the Aeros: 5/14/13 – 5/20/13
Things just did not come together for the Akron Aeros over the past week as the team dropped five out of six games and fell to 20-24 on the season. This Akron team remains young and talented, though it lacks the consistency needed to rise to the top of the Eastern League standings. Despite the losing, there were plenty of exemplary performances, major league pitchers making cameo appearances, and an outfielder risking life and limb to make plays. To read all about the week in Akron and find out all you need to know, join Jim Piascik and go Launching off with the Aeros.

AKRON- The Akron Aeros wasted a two-run ninth to drop a heartbreaker to the Bowie Bayson in 12 innings, 4-3.
