Aeros lose, need Reading's help

By sstorm Published: August 30, 2009

BINGHAMTON METS 5, AKRON AEROS 3 KEY STATS: With the loss, the Aeros are now depending on division-foe Reading to lose at one game of its scheduled double header against visiting Bowie to clinch the regular-season Southern Division title. But even if Reading wins both, the Aeros still have the opportunity to clinch on their own with tonight's 7:05 p.m. game. KEY MOMENTS: Aeros starter Bobby Livingston (8-7) followed his usual pattern on the mound. He struggled at the beginning of the game, gave up a handful of runs and then settled in to go 7 2/3 innings in which he allowed five runs - including two home runs...It wasn't an insurmountable lead, the but the Aeros lacked much life, collecting just five hits - enough to notch a run in the first, fourth and ninth innings. STORM'S STAR: B-Mets starter Eric Brown entered the game with 14 losses on the season, but enjoyed one of his better outings in limiting the listless Aeros to two runs (none earned) over six solid frames. UP NEXT: The Aeros wrap up this four-game series and homestand with Game Four against Binghamton (New York Mets) at 7:05 p.m. at Canal Park. Schedule to pitch for the Aeros is right-hander Jeamar Gomez (10-4, 3.09 ERA) and B-Mets left-hander Mike Antonini (7-3, 4.84 ERA). RADIO: WARF (1350 am).
