This week’s Eastern League series between Richmond and Erie was light years removed from that level, even if the SeaWolves still experienced a statistical sliver of what those Bronx Bombers sustained. Erie totaled 18 runs…

Scram homer severs SeaWolves’ skid

   July 24, 2011 6:11 pm

Although Saturday night’s team meeting was emotionally cathartic for the Erie SeaWolves, Sunday’s home run from Deik Scram was practically more productive. Scram’s two-run shot in the bottom of the ninth inning against Akron closer Cory Burns resulted in Erie’s 4-3 victory at Jerry Uht Park. It also ended the team’s five-game losing streak, which…
