The visiting Thunder used a 3-1 win Tuesday night at Canal Park to jump out to a 1-0 lead in Game One of the Eastern League Championship Series at Canal Park.

First baseman Stephen Head collected three of the Aeros' four hits on the night, but it wasn't enough. Akron scored its lone run in the third inning on Josh Rodriguez's RBI-double. After that, the Aeros did not notch a hit against Thunder starter Eric Hacker after the fourth inning as he cruised to victory while handing the vistors early series momentum.

If there were any debate as to whether the presence of Travis Hafner was a huge advantage or major distraction for the Aeros in Friday's crucial Game Three of the Southern Division Playoffs, the Indians slugger quickly put the argument to rest.
