Game of the Day - Aeros vs. Sea Dogs - The rain has been wreaking havoc lately, leading to numerous postponements and of course the eventual doubleheader makeups. Today is our busiest schedule of the season, with three doubleheaders hoping to be played, yet we're sticking with the one game being played out in Akron as the Portland Sea Dogs continue their fight to not be the worst team in the Eastern League...and maybe play a bit of the spoiler role along the way. The Sea Dogs (49-66) are a game and half up on last place Binghamton (48-68) in the Eastern Division, while Akron (60-56) is in fourth place and 5 games back in the Western Division. Brock Huntzinger goes for the Dogs tonight in his twenty-first start of the season. He hasn't notched a victory since June 6th and in the five starts since his last win, he has only one quality start which came in his outing last Thursday in Bowie. In that game, Huntzinger went 6 innings and allowed only 2 earned runs and 3 hits and struck out nine batters. He will be opposed by Paolo Espino who has yet to notch a loss with the Aeros this season. This will only be his fifth start for Akron, but he has appeared out of the pen an additional seventeen times. One of those times was against Portland back on June 18th when Espino shut down the Dogs over 5 innings for the win...The Sea Dogs are 3-1 against Akron this season with two game left to play in the season series...Akron pitchers have allowed a league-low 63 home runs on the season, Portland pitching has allowed 100, the second most.
