AKRON AEROS 4, ERIE SEAWOLVES 3 KEY STATS: The Aeros victory was the team's 88th of the season, tying them with 2003 club for the second-most wins in a season...In other league news, after being no-hit through six innings Sunday, Reading put up six runs in the seventh inning for a 6-0 victory over host Connecticut to claim the Southern Division Wild Card...After Monday's game, the Aeros have Tuesday off before Reading comes to Akron to begin the best-of-five division playoffs.
PLAYOFFS SET: In addition to the Akron/Reading matchup, host New Britain topped Trenton 6-4 Sunday to set the Northern Division Playoffs as division winner Connecticut will host New Britain for Games One and Two beginning Wednesday. KEY MOMENTS: The Aeros used the longball early - including back-to-back sixth-inning homers by DH Carlos Santana and 1B Beau Mills - to play to a 3-3 tie...With two outs in the seventh inning, C Armando Camacaro singled up the middle. He then took second on a delayed steal and came home on a pair of throwing errors, representing the winning run. STORM'S STAR: Camacaro is overshadowed on most nights, understandably, by top prospect Santana. But his veteran leadership and savy sense for the game makes him invaluable. He has also thrown out a potential base stealer the lasat two games.
