Martinez homers; Aeros swept by lowly New Britain

By sstorm Published: August 17, 2008

Here's the good news from Sunday's Aeros game - Indians catcher Victor Martinez went 2-for-4 with a home run.

And that's it...Really.

The rest was a debacle.

The game ended in an 8-2 loss to New Britain (the second-worst team in the Eastern League at 54-72) with Aeros closer Randy Newsom giving up a grand slam in a non-save situation.

It ended with Wes Hodges making another error - his 26th of the season.

It ended with three Aeros being ejected - outfielders Stephen Head and Bronson Sardinha and manager Mike Sarbaugh.

It ended with a closed door meeting that had Sarbaugh ripping his club for a 1-5 home stand that had little energy and ended with a three-game sweep by New Britain - NEW BRITAIN!

Can it get any worse? The scary part is that with 13 regular-season games remaining, it could.

That's why it's time to do something. No more players meetings. Or hitting meetings or manager's closed-door meetings.

How about some new blood? How about calling up a hungry youngster from Kinston like Beau Mills?

It's an idea someone might want to seriously consider before this team blows up completely.
