While Launching off with the Aeros was off during the past two weeks the Akron Aeros stumbled to a 5-10 record, falling to a 39-44 record. The team had been surging before this dry spell but now finds itself 5.5 games out of first place in the Western Division and in fifth place.
Despite the poor performance of the team as a whole, the Aeros got some good news recently as Carlos Moncrief, Jesus Aguilar, Matt Packer, and Jose Flores were named to the Eastern League All-Star game. The game will take place July 10 in New Britain, Connecticut.
The Aeros will look to get back to their winning ways on the road over the next week, playing seven games in Bowie and Richmond heading into the All-Star break. They will then return to Canal Park for a seven-game homestand starting July 11.
