Urshela's clutch hit helps end Aeros' losing streak
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. And when the opposition gives up back-to-back walks in the eighth inning of a tie game, go for the jugular. Such was the approach used by Akron Aeros third baseman Giovanny Urshela, who cracked a two-out, RBI single to center field in the bottom of the eighth inning Thursday night, lifting the Aeros to a 3-2 victory over the Altoona Curve in the opener of a five-game series at Canal Park.

Lowery rebounding from tough 2012, showing promise in Akron
One could be forgiven for selling their Jake Lowery stock after 2012. The catcher was presented with a challenging assignment and simply could not manage it, ending the year with a demotion and plenty of questions. So far in 2013, though, Lowery has shown that last year was a fluke. Given another aggressive promotion due to injuries, Lowery filled in admirably and bounced back in a strong way. He recently talked to Jim Piascik about what Double-A is like, his approach at the plate and behind it, and much more.

Around The Farm: June 20, 2013
With both the Columbus and Akron offenses hitting the skids, Around The Farm needed some extra help to remain interesting Thursday night. Luckily the start of the Arizona League, the return of Lake County from the All-Star break, and offensive fireworks for Mahoning Valley provided some fodder for us. The night was highlighted by a Lake County catcher showing off his power in a big way. To find out who it is and all you need to know about the night in the minor leagues, join Jim Piascik and go Around The Farm.

Turley, Thunder finish sweep, shut out Aeros 1-0
Coming into this three-game series with the Trenton Thunder, the Akron Aeros were riding high after going over .500 for the first time since May 12. Now, as the Thunder leave town, the Aeros have more work to do. The Thunder (36-35) finished a sweep of the Aeros (34-37) with a 1-0 victory Thursday night at Canal Park. One night after the two teams combined for 25 hits offense was at a premium, with only nine hits falling in all night long.

Around The Farm: June 19, 2013
After Tim Fedroff tore up the minor leagues in 2012, many expected great things from the outfielder in 2013. Fedroff got off to a slow start, but that is never a reason to give up hope completely. Lately, the outfielder has been coming around and Wednesday night was no exception. To see exactly how Fedroff fared last night, which Akron outfielder continues to prove he needs a promotion, and the rest of the action in the minor leagues, join Jim Piascik and go Around The Farm.

Launching off with the Aeros: 6/11/13 – 6/17/13
The Akron Aeros found success despite being away from Canal Park all week, going 3-2 during their road trip to New Hampshire and Portland and moving back to .500 on the season. The offense put up some remarkable power and discipline as it carried the team, though the pitching for its part did not slouch. To read about all the action for the Aeros and the outfielder that just may be coming into his own, join Jim Piascik and go Launching off with the Aeros.
