Portland, Maine - The Bowie Baysox (59-53) battered the Sea Dogs (52-58) with 19 hits and prevailed 13-7 in the middle game of their series on Saturday night at Hadlock Field. The game was called due to rain with Bowie batting in the top of the ninth.

McAvoy dominant in Portland's 5-0 win

Richmond, VA - Kevin McAvoy (5-6) set the tone on Tuesday night, firing eight scoreless frames in Portland's 5-0 win over the Richmond Flying Squirrels (49-64) in the series opener at the Diamond. The Sea Dogs (54-58) have won five of their last seven.

McAvoy did not allow a hit until the eighth inning when Hunter Cole singled. Later in the frame, Brandon Bednar added a single. The righty tied a career-high with eight innings on just two hits, two walks and seven strikeouts. At one point, McAvoy retired 16 straight batters.

Portland took a 3-0 lead in the second inning off losing pitcher Tyler Herb (1-1). Josh Tobias hit into what could have been an inning-ending double play, but it was bobbled by SS C.J. Hinojosa. Cole Sturgeon knocked in the first run with a walk, and with two-outs, Danny Mars delivered a two-run single.

Herb was effective for Richmond in the loss, picking up a perfect frame in five of seven innings pitched.

Portland put the game away in the eighth inning on a two-run homer by Michael Chavis. The homer was the 11th for Chavis in Double-A and his 28th between Portland and High-A Salem. The Sea Dogs have hit a homer in 15 straight games.
