Roehl finally showing what Sarbaugh has seen all along

By sstorm Published: April 30, 2008

In Tuesday's 7-4 loss, reliever Scott Roehl held Erie to a hit and walk over 2 2/3 scoreless innings. It was as positive of a sign as the Aeros have seen out of the right-hander, who for all his success at high Class-A Kinston, has struggled every time he's been promoted to Akron the last few years.

"I've (managed) him now for three or four years and what he did (in Tuesday's outing) is what I've seen in the past,'' Aeros manager Mike Sarbaugh said. "He was in control, he mixed up his pitches and he really kept us in the game.''

Aeros pitching struggles in another blowout loss; Sarbaugh ejected again

By sstorm Published: April 25, 2008

Minor league baseball managers don't often get ejected from back-to-back games - it simply costs too much. But the typically laid-back Mike Sarbaugh isn't often baited as much as he has been the last two nights, either.

Twenty-four hours after being tossed for arguing balls and strikes in the sixth inning of the Aeros 13-6 blowout loss to visiting Harrisburg Thursday at Canal Park, the Aeros rookie manager found himself heading into the home clubhouse early again Friday.

Dixon rocked in Aeros blowout loss

By sstorm Published: April 24, 2008

It was not a good night all around for the Aeros.

Back home at Canal Park to kick off a four-game series against visiting Harrisburg, the host quickly fell behind and never recovered, losing 11-6 Thursday in front of a sparse crowd. It felt more like 50-6 watching it live.

Last-place Aeros lose again, 7-1 to rival Altoona

By sstorm Published: April 23, 2008

I left the blogsphere for a few days hoping some time away would give the Aeros time to come up with something positive for me to write about...Didn't work.

The team is a mess. The Aeros are a mere 6-11 and in last place in the Eastern League Southern Division. They have to yet to crack .500 this season. They were held to a season-low three hits in Tuesday's 7-1 loss to rival Altoona and have now lost 5 of the last 6 games.

By sstorm Published: April 15, 2008

The ripple effect of the Indians putting closer Joe Borowski on the disabled list with an, um, right triceps injury (hey, I'm not the one making it up) on Tuesday reached into the low minors as the Aeros made another pair of roster moves before their 11-10 victory over visiting Binghamton (New York Mets).

Right-handed pitcher Bubbie Buzachero was sent to Triple-A Buffalo while another right-hander, Scott Roehl joined Akron from extended spring training.

Martin provides hitless relief in Aeros win; Aubrey streak continues

By sstorm Published: April 12, 2008

J.D. Martin kept the visiting Bowie Baysox bats quiet for 3 1/3 innings Saturday afternoon, giving the Aeros batters time to wake up and rally from behind for a 7-3 victory and earn his second win of the young season.

For the second consecutive day, Akron's offense posted a seven-run sixth inning to erase an early deficit and improve to 4-5 on the season. The big inning came against Bowie reliever Daniel Lonsberry, who gave six earned runs on on three hits and two walks in just 2/3 of a inning of work. Before he took the mound, Baysox starter Chris Tillman no-hit the Aeros through the first five innings.

Aeros fall to Komminsk's Baysox; Crowe on DL

By sstorm Published: April 10, 2008

Former Aeros manager Brad Komminsk returned to Canal Park for the first time as the enemy, guiding his new team - the Bowie Baysox (Baltimore Orioles) - to a 7-5 win Thursday to put a damper on the Aeros home opener.

Komminsk, as many Aeros fans might fondly recall, led Akron to its first-ever Eastern League Championship in 2003. He spent eight seasons (1999-2006) with the Indians organization while guiding the Aeros to back-to-back Southern Division titles in '02 and 2003.
