Bruce Rondon’s streak of not allowing an earned run ended Wednesday night.
The Erie SeaWolves’ losing streak didn’t.
The SeaWolves concluded a miserable 1-7 road trip when Akron edged them 7-6 in 11 innings at Canal Park. The Aeros scored the winning run when Rondon walked Jordan Henry and Roberto Perez, balked Henry to third and then surrendered Davis Stoneburner’s game-winning single.
Erie (46-58) returns to Jerry Uht Park on a seven-game losing streak. The SeaWolves haven’t won since last Friday, when they started their road trip with a 3-0 shutout at Altoona.
Akron upped the Eastern League’s best record to 63-41.

The loss offset a great rally by the SeaWolves, who scored five times in the fifth inning to tie the score at 6-6. Pitching took over from there until the Aeros ended Rondon’s streak without an earned run at 15 2/3 innings.
Jamie Johnson and Nick Castellanos each had three hits for Erie. James McCann scored twice, the first of them courtesy of a solo home run in the third.
Stoneburner’s decisive single was the last of Akron’s 13 hits.
The SeaWolves seek to end their victory drought with Thursday’s opener of a four-game series against Richmond at Jerry Uht Park.
