Cecchini delivers critical win for Sea Dogs
Garin Cecchini's soft fly ball scores two runs in the ninth, and Portland hangs on for a much-needed win.
By MIKE ASHMORE

TRENTON, N.J. - Time is running out for the Portland Sea Dogs. But at least for one night, the sensation of the walls closing in came to an abrupt halt.

Sea Dogs starter Keith Couch and Trenton Thunder newcomer Bryan Mitchell were locked in a pitchers' duel through six innings, but eventually gave way to their bullpens after allowing a run each in the seventh. After Trenton reliever Tommy Kahnle loaded the bases in the ninth...

Sea Dogs suffer costly setback
Portland wastes numerous scoring chances and sees its playoff hopes get slimmer, losing to Trenton in 10 innings.
By MIKE ASHMORE

TRENTON, N.J. - It would have been the kind of win that could have changed everything.

Instead, it just goes down as another loss -- one that may be more devastating than any of the Portland Sea Dogs' prior defeats.

Sea Dogs cleanup hitter J.C. Linares walked on an extremely close 3-2 pitch by Trenton Thunder reliever Danny Burawa with two outs in the ninth inning Sunday to force home the tying run, but Ramon Flores' RBI single...

Owens (3-0) struck out six and walked one in 62/3 innings, his longest outing in five starts. Of his 97 pitches, 60 were strikes

New Hampshire rallies last for 8-6 win
Portland loses ground in the race for a playoff berth.
By ALLEN LESSELS Special to the Press Herald

MANCHESTER, N.H. - The Fisher Cats had the last rally.

The Sea Dogs scored five runs in the seventh inning to quickly answer a New Hampshire charge, but in the end it was not quite enough.

New Hampshire took the final lead on run-scoring double by Kevin Ahrens in the bottom of the seventh inning on the way to an 8-6 win at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium on Wednesday night.

Sea Dogs remain in playoff hunt
After a 9-3 win at New Hampshire Thursday, Portland has to win five straight at Hadlock.
By ALLEN LESSELS

MANCHESTER, N.H. - It's simple and straightforward.

The Sea Dogs kept their playoff hopes alive with a 9-3 win over the New Hampshire Fisher Cats on Thursday night at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium.

To turn the hopes into a playoff berth they must win five straight games at home against the Trenton Thunder, the team they are chasing for the second Eastern Division slot in the postseason tournament.

Sea Dogs roll over Thunder, 8-1
Seven strong innings by Chris Hernandez and three home runs help Portland avoid elimination from the playoff race.
By Kevin Thomas

PORTLAND - The Portland Sea Dogs celebrated their Hall of Fame Friday night, so it's only fitting to recall the words of previous inductee Kevin Millar:

"Don't let us win one."

It's the rally cry of teams needing a comeback. Millar uttered that statement before Game 4 of the 2004 American League Championship Series, with Boston trailing the New York Yankees three games to none. Maybe you've heard how that turned out, with Boston winning four straight.

Not such a dreamy day for Sea Dogs
A sold-out Hadlock crowd enjoys Field of Dreams Day, but Trenton clocks four homers in a 9-4 win.

By Kevin Thomas

PORTLAND – Field of Dreams Day at Hadlock Field is always a special event on the Portland Sea Dogs schedule.

With the cornfield set up in center field, the sold-out Hadlock Field crowd of 7,368 hopped to its feet and applauded when the players began to emerge through the stalks.

They emerged, shook hands with fans in the stands and then faced a powerful-hitting Trenton Thunder team.

Soggy finale to Sea Dogs' solid year
Rain plagued the Sea Dogs all year, but look at the bright side: 10 players promoted to Triple-A, with three ending up in Boston.
By Kevin Thomas

PORTLAND - The Portland Sea Dogs were rained out Monday at Hadlock Field

How fitting.

During a season interrupted by rain delays and postponements, the Sea Dogs could not get their final game in. Portland's game with Trenton Thunder was canceled because of the wet conditions.

It was the sixth rain-out at Hadlock this season.
