Screen Shot 2018 01 16 at 7.35.17 AMMANCHESTER, N.H. – The New Hampshire Fisher Cats returned to Manchester on Wednesday and marked their return with a pair of wins over the Portland Sea Dogs.

New Hampshire grabbed three-run innings early in both games, negating an early Portland first inning lead in the first game and another Sea Dog lead in the second inning of the second game.

The Fisher Cats wouldn’t relinquish either lead, on the shoulders of quality pitching as New Hampshire’s Tyler Saucedo and Travis Bergen combined to allow just six hits in the 4-2 victory during the first half of the doubleheader while Josh DeGraaf, Francisco Rios, Kirby Snead and Dusty Isaacs combined to scatter nine hits in the Fisher Cats’ 6-4 victory in the latter half of the evening.

Harold Ramirez and Max Pentecost each grabbed two hits in Game 1, with Pentecost recording a home run in the fifth. Ramirez accumulated two hits again in Game 2, joined this time by Santiago Espinal and Andrew Guillotte.

Portland’s bats were slightly livelier in the second game, with Deiner Lopez, Michael Chavis, and Chris Madera each recording two hits for the Sea Dogs.

Jon Harris (10-4, 4.49 ERA) will seek to continue New Hampshire’s streak on Thursday as he faces Matthew Kent (9-8, 3.33 ERA) in a 7:05 p.m. tilt.
