AKRON AEROS 3, ALTOONA CURVE 2 - Game One
ALTOONA 8, AEROS 5 - Game Two
KEY STATS: The Aeros increased their winning streak to an Eastern-League best eight games while getting off to their best start in franchise history in Game One... In the night cap, Altoona came-from-behind to record their first road win of the season.
KEY MOMENTS: The Aeros held a 2-1 lead heading into the seventh inning of the first game, but closer Vinnie Pestano blew his first save of the season in allowing the tying run. It took two extra innings before Mickey Hall's run-scoring double plated John Drennen (who drew a one-out walk) for the win in the bottom of the ninth...In the night cap, the host rallied from behind twice - the final time in the fifth on a Drennen two-run triple - but the bullpen gave up four runs in the seventh to erase Akron's hopes of a double-header sweep.
STORM'S STAR: Hall's clutch hit in Game One not only won the game, but saved the bullpen from being overtaxed in their second double header in three days.
UP NEXT: The Aeros and Curve (Pittsburgh Pirates) are slated to meet again today at Canal Park at 1:35 p.m. Aeros left-hander Chuck Lofgren (1-0, 1.80 ERA) and lefty Daniel Moskos (1-0, 6.10 ERA) are the scheduled pitchers.
