Portland Sea Dogs

MANCHESTER, N.H. – The Portland Sea Dogs managed just one hit on Saturday night, but still defeated the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, 2-1.

Both Portland runs came in the first inning, as New Hampshire hurler Hector Perez walked three of the first four batters he faced. A passed ball allowed Jarren Duran come home for the game’s first run. A subsequent sacrifice fly let Brett Netzer cross the plate for Portland’s other run.

Jeremy Rivera finally got Portland a hit in the fourth, but New Hampshire responded with a pair in their half of the inning, finally putting the ‘Cats on the board with Nash Knight’s run.

Portland managed just two more baserunners after that point, but the Fisher Cats could not capitalize, squandering Logan Warmoth line drive after poor baserunning in the fifth and stranding two baserunners in the ninth after Christian Williams grounded into an inning-ending double play.

Perez fell to 7-5, the first of four Fisher Cats pitchers on the night. Daniel McGrath picked up the win for Portland, scattering four hits over a seven-inning start, with Dedgar Jimenez getting the save for his work in the ninth.
