The Aeros are 8-2 over their last 10 games, having taking over the best record in the league with a 49-31 mark entering Sunday's game at Erie.
With the win streak, they've stretched their first-place lead in the Southern Division to 3.5 games over the SeaWolves.
Last week, closer Randy Newsom led the league with four saves to make him 11-for-11 in save situations. Hey, even Trevor Crowe had a four-hit game Wednesday in a win at Binghamton.
Then there's newcomer Chris Gimenez, a catcher/infielder who was called up from Class-A Kinston Friday and homerd in his first game with the Aeros and is hitting. 333 in two games so far.
Before the Aeros left town last Tuesday, manager Tim Bogar talked about how important this long road stretch would be - playing 13 games (two make ups from the beginning of the year against Binghamton) in 11 days. So far, the team has responded in a way that has to have Bogar thinking playoffs will likely be in the team's future this season.
