The Reading Fightin Phils suffered a series sweep in Akron on Sunday.

The Aeros beat the Fightin Phils 4-1 to complete the three-game sweep.

Jesse Biddle (4-13, 3.76) allowed three runs on eight hits while striking out seven.

Biddle was tagged with the loss due largely to a lack of run support.

Reading (52-73) will play a doubleheader in Altoona on Monday starting at 5:35pm.
