Saturday night is alright for Baseball…’Dogs in Erie, Pa.

The Sea Dogs suffered a 9-2 loss in the series opener to Erie on Friday night at Jerry Uht Park.  Tonight, 30-year old Mike MacDonald makes his seventh start of the season. MacDonald, the first ever Maine to play for the Sea Dogs, will pitch on three days rest due to Brandon Workman joining the rotation.  Workman makes his first Double-A start tomorrow afternoon in the roadtrip finale.

Travis Shaw launched his first Double-A homer on Friday night, hitting to the left of the brick in left field.

Quick hits from last night: Xander Bogaerts went 2-for-4 and has multi-hit games in both Double-A starts…The most impressive at-bat last night was a 10-pitch battle with Jared Gayhart…Bogaerts continued to foul off pitches, before nailing  double down the left-field line.  In addition, he’s played a smooth shortstop.

Portland: Bradley Jr. 8, Hissey 7, Smith 5, Brentz 9, Shaw 3, Bogaerts 6, Gibson DH, Vazquez 2, Dent 4, RHP Mike MacDonald (1-2, 4.85)

Erie: Johnson DH, Romero 6, Castellanos 9, Lennerton 3, Garcia 8, Fields 7, Bishop 5, Douglas 4, McCann 2, RHP James Avery (10-9, 4.81)
