ERIE — Joel Skinner lost many arguments as manager of the Cleveland Indians.

Monday night at Jerry Uht Park, he lost another one on a reversed home run call, and Akron lost to Erie.

The host SeaWolves claimed a 4-2 victory over the Aeros on Monday night before a Buck Night crowd of 4,762 fans.

The SeaWolves (38-53) went into the Eastern League All-Star break ending an eight-game homestand with their second straight win over the Aeros (45-45).

Erie finished its home games with a 6-2 mark after going 0-12 at the Uht for the month of June.

Thad Weber (6-9) matched his best start this season with eight innings of six-hit ball. The right-hander had a shutout going until Akron's Matt McBride crushed a two-run home run in the top of the eighth.

Rawley Bishop provided Erie a lead it never relinquished with his three-run homer off Akron starter Eric Berger (4-5) in the third. Bishop had three hits and reached base four times.

Andy Dirks, one of three SeaWolves who will play in Wednesday's Eastern League All-Star Game, singled and scored on Bishop's homer. Dirks and New Hampshire's Darin Mastroianni go into the break tied for the league lead with 100 hits.
