Aeros 4, Rock Cats 3
Key situation: Aeros closer Jose Flores did Sunday what he wasn’t able to do the night before: He halted a ninth-inning rally by New Britain. After Flores blew Saturday’s save, he was called on Sunday to quell another threat when the Rock Cats scored two runs to pull within a run and two outs with the bases loaded in the ninth inning. He got third baseman Miguel Sano to pop out to preserve the win.
Quick hits: Matt Packer (5-5) became the third consecutive Aeros starter to not issue a walk in his outing. The left-hander limited the Rock Cats to one run and struck out nine batters in 6⅔ innings to pick up the win.
Next game: The Aeros hit the road to Harrisburg for a quick three-game trip today through Wednesday. The Aeros are scheduled to send right-hander Brett Brach (4-3, 4.76 ERA) to the mound at 7 p.m. today to face Senators right-hander Taylor Jordan (6-0, 0.73 ERA).
