The Akron Aeros won four of their six games over the past week and moved to 26-31 on the season. The team remains in fifth place in the Western Division -- six games out of first place -- though the Aeros began to climb out of the hole they dug by losing 12 of 15 from May 13-May 28.
Manager Edwin Rodriguez was impressed with how his team played over the past week, particularly in their 15-inning victory Thursday night against the Harrisburg Senators.
"More than the win, I think that we are very pleased with the way the guys played," Rodriguez said of the extra inning win. "They showed character [and] they showed intensity. It got to the point where whatever the outcome would be, I was pleased [with] the way they were playing."
The Aeros will look to keep that intensity and character going as they start a six-game homestand against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats and Portland Sea Dogs tonight at 7:05 p.m.
