Eastern League All-Star game in Reading, Pa…Brentz is the first player in franchise history with two 5-hit games…Hernandez is sixth in the league with a 2.87 ERA (starts tonight in the opener) and Rodriguez leads the team in homers with 12.
SEEKING SPLIT IN HOMESTAND’S FIRST HALF: The Sea Dogs and New Hampshire Fisher Cats (Blue Jays affiliate) wrap up their four-game series on Friday night at Hadlock Field…Portland picked up the win Thursday and look to salvage a split with a win in the finale…Tuesday night, the two teams duked it out for 13-innings and 4-plus hours…The longest game in both respects since 2009 for the Sea Dogs.
