By sstorm Published: September 7, 2009

AKRON AEROS 9, ERIE SEAWOLVES 3 KEY STATS: The Aeros ride an eight-game winning streak into the post season, having completed a four-game sweep of Erie to wrap up regular-season play...With the victory, the Aeros finished with the second-highest win total in franchise history, behind the 2002 squad that racked up 93 wins...1B Beau Mills extended his hit streak to a season-high 10 games with a third-inning double...Erie 2B Shawn Roof hit his first career home run, but it didn't quite make up for the two errors he committed. KEY MOMENTS: The Aeros took a 2-0 lead in the first inning with the aid of two Erie errors...Roof's rare homer put the SeaWolves on the board in the second inning, but Akron CF John Drennen hit his first of two home runs on the day in the bottom of the inning...Akron exploded for a five-run fourth inning - including a record-tying two-run home run by C Carlos Santana. STORM'S STARS: Santana continues to show why he is indeed the Indians top prospect and Drennen is getting hot at just the right time. UP NEXT: The Aeros completed the regular season against visiting Erie (Detroit Tigers) Monday, setting the stage for the Eastern League Southern Division Series against Reading that begins Wednesday at Canal Park at 7:05 p.m. Right-hander Josh Tomlin (14-9, 4.16 ERA) will start the Aeros in Game One. RADIO: WARF (1350 am).
