Jared Goedert continued his hot hitting, but it was not enough for the Akron Aeros in a 2-1 Eastern League loss to the host Erie SeaWolves on Wednesday afternoon.
Goedert, who is hitting .395, had three hits and the lone extra-base hit for the Aeros. He tripled and scored the only Aeros run on a two-out single by Thomas Neal in the ninth inning. The threat ended when Kyle Bellows grounded out with Chun Chen on third and Goedert on first.
Juan Diaz had the only other hit for the Aeros.
Jared Wesson (4-2, 5.49) gave up three hits, one walk and struck out seven in seven innings and Michael Morrison picked up his fourth save for the SeaWolves.
Preston Guilmet (1-1, 4.15), the third of five Aeros pitchers, was charged with the loss. Guilmet, who was making his first appearance after going on the disabled list May 2 with a lower back strain, gave up a run on a solo home run by Rawley Bishop in the sixth inning.
The other run for the SeaWolves was a solo homer by Jordan Lennerton in the eighth off Bryan Price. That turned out to be the game-winning hit.
The Aeros, who remain in first place in the Western Division, will open a three-game series against the Richmond Flying Squirrels at 7:05 Friday night at Canal Park.
