Akron responded with an unearned run in the first inning off Travis Lakins (ND). Lakins worked 4.2 innings on just one hit, four walks and four strikeouts. The righty was forced out of the game due to a 49-minute rain delay in the fifth inning.

Bobby Poyner relieved Lakins in the fifth and yielded just one run, a two-out homer to Yu Chang in the sixth inning. Poyner pitched 3.1 innings on two hits, no walks and four strikeouts.

Sea Dogs beat Erie 12-6

Erie, PA - The Portland Sea Dogs (30-35) had to deal with a one hour and 37 minute rain delay, but that didn't hold back their offense, defeating the Erie SeaWolves (33-36), 12-6, Monday night in the series opener at UPMC Park.

Portland had a 6-3 lead in the bottom of the third inning when play was stopped due to rain. Teddy Stankiewicz (ND) did return to the game, working just 2.2 innings.

LHP Jake Drehoff (W, 1-0) pitched a career-high 4.1 innings on two hits, two runs and seven strikeouts (career-high). Drehoff allowed a two-run homer to Grayson Greiner, the first batter he faced, but retired the final nine hitters.

The Sea Dogs batted around for the second time on the trip, picking up seven hits against Artie Lewicki (L, 4-3) in the second. Henry Urrutia knocked in the first run of the series with a single. During a run of five straight hits, Jake Romanski, Jake DePew and Danny Mars picked up RBIs. Tzu-Wei Lin delivered a sacrifice fly and Rafael Devers capped off the scoring with a triple.

Erie scored five times in the third off Stankiewicz and Drehoff, but that would be as close as they would get.

Portland scored three in the fifth inning, receiving a two-run double by Josh Tobias. Nick Longhi and Devers each homered late in the game. Longhi has homered in consecutive games and Devers has hit a home run in four of his last six starts.

RHP Jake Cosart closed out the win with two scoreless innings.

Portland received an RBI and hit from eight of nine starters. Mars had three hits for the second straight game.

The Sea Dogs and Erie SeaWolves (Tigers affiliate) continue their three-game series on Tuesday night at UPMC Park. RHP Elih Villanueva (1-1, 11.57) makes his 3rd start of the year for Portland. Erie's A.J. Ladwig (3-1, 4.17) makes his eighth start of the year. First pitch from Erie, Pennsylvania is scheduled for 7:05 PM.
