Aeros 4, SeaWolves 1
Key Situation: The Aeros scored single runs in the fourth and fifth innings to take the lead and tacked on two more insurance runs in the seventh and eighth. Three Aeros pitchers held the SeaWolves to a single run in the seventh in the two-hour and 22-minute game.
Quick Hits: Indians right-hander Brett Myers (elbow) cruised through his three-inning rehab outing at the beginning of the game. He gave up just one hit (a double) and issued one walk. Myers faced 10 batters and threw 33 pitches (including 18 for strikes). The Aeros’ run in the seventh inning came on shortstop Ronny Rodriguez’s solo home run, his second of the season.
Next Game: The Aeros and SeaWolves will play the second game of their three-game series tonight at 6:05 at Canal Park. Another rehabbing Indians pitcher, right-hander Blake Wood, is scheduled to throw the first inning for the Aeros. Left-hander Matt Packer (1-5, 4.07 ERA) is expected to follow Wood. Left-hander Kyle Lobstein (5-2, 3.16 ERA) is the scheduled starter for the SeaWolves.
