The Portland Sea Dogs put up seven unanswered runs on Friday night, taking the first game of the New Hampshire Fisher Cats’ final series of the year, 7-2.

Portland quickly responded to New Hampshire’s pair of runs in the top of the second with three runs of their own half an inning later, first from a Jordan Procyshen double bringing home Josh Ockimey and Henry Urrutia, with Procyshen later coming home on a Deiner Lopez single.

Urrutia added an RBI of his own in the sixth, sending Jeremy Barfield to the plate and the Sea Dogs would put the game out reach in the seventh thanks to a three-run blast from Barfield, his 27th of the year.

Trey Ball earned his third win of the year against New Hampshire, giving up just four hits in six innings of work.

The losing pitcher was Jon Harris, who gave up five of Portland’s seven runs in his second 99 pitch appearance of the year.

Lefthander Tom Pannone (7-3, 3.03 ERA) is New Hampshire’s starting pitcher in Saturday’s contest, a 6 p.m. affair. Pannone will face Portland’s Henry Owens (3-6, 5.01 ERA).
