Aeros 6, Curve 0

Key Situation: Aeros 1B Beau Mills, the reigning Eastern League and Indians Minor League Player of the Week, continued his hot hitting. Mill‘s three-run home run powered the Aeros offense to a break-out, four-run fifth inning as the host batted around against Altoona starter and RHP Mike Colla, sending the right hander to the loss.

Quick Hits: Aeros starter and LHP Matt Packer pitched his best game of the season - a two-hit, eight-inning shutout in which he walked just one and struck out seven as the Aeros moved to a season-high five games over .500...Aeros C Raul Padron and RF John Drennen picked up two hits a piece.

Next Game: The Aeros wrap up the three-game home stand with a 12:05 afternoon contest today…Akron LHP Drew Pomeranz (0-0, 1.93 ERA), the Indians 2010 first-round pick (fifth overall), will make his Canal Park debut against Altoona RHP Kyle McPherson (3-3, 3.26 ERA).
