New Hampshire Hardball

Sea Dogs 4, Fisher Cats 2

MANCHESTER – Elvis Luciano worked four scoreless innings and Chavez Young and Brock Lundquist drove in runs, but the Portland Sea Dogs (Boston Red Sox Double-A affiliate) rallied for a 4-2 win over the New Hampshire Fisher Cats (Toronto Blue Jays) in Game 1 of Thursday’s doubleheader at Delta Dental Stadium.

The teams were scheduled to play a pair of seven-inning games to make-up Wednesday’s rainout, but the second game was postponed due to rain.


Portland (27-22) used a pair of home runs by Pedro Castellanos and Jeisson Rosario to post the win. Castellanos led off the sixth with a home run to make it 2-1, and Rosario hit a three-run homer in the top of the seventh to lift the Sea Dogs.

New Hampshire (22-27) scored its runs in the first and fifth innings, starting each frame with a double. In the first, Samad Taylor doubled and scored on a single by Young to make it 1-0. The Fisher Cats also scored in the fifth after Vinny Capra doubled, Tanner Kirwer reached on an infield single, and Lundquist drove in the run with a sacrifice fly to deep left field.

Luciano worked four scoreless innings for the Fisher Cats, giving way to Graham Spraker. Jon Harris (L, 1-3) took the loss.

Jake Thompson (W, 2-0) picked up the win in relief with Zack Kelly notching his first save for Portland.
