Aeros' Aguilar gives it his best shot in 9th, but Erie escapes with 3-2 win

By Stephanie Storm Published: August 26, 2013

With twoouts, two on and the Aeros trailing Erie 3-2 in the seventh inning, the Seawolves intentially walked Aeros 100-RBI man Jesus Aguilar.


The move worked, as right fielder Tyler Holt flied out to right field to end the threat.


Ironically, the same situation came up again in the ninth inning, and this time Erie chose to pitch to Aguilar, who smoked a shot into centerfield to the deepest part of Canal Park.


Still, SeaWolves center fielder Daniel Fields made a great running catch before slamming into the outfield wall on a dead sprint, making a spectcular game-saving catch as Erie escapred with a 3-2 victory.


Aeros starting pitcher Matt Packer (11-9) entered the game with a 4-0 record and 0.85 ERA in five appearnces against the SeaWolves this season, but gave up three runs on eight hits in 5 1/3 innings to take the loss.


Erie starter Victor Larez (9-7) picked up the win, limiting the Aeros to a run while scattering five hits over five innings. 


Up next for the Aeros, right-hander Toru Murata (6-5, 3.65 ERA) is slated to face SeaWolves left-hander Ramon Garcia (1-4, 4.91 ERA) Tuesday at Canal Park for the 7:05 p.m. start.
