Portland Sea Dogs Game Recap (Game Photos below)

Adalberto Ibarra delivered a run-scoring fielder’s choice, giving the Sea Dogs a 6-5, walk-off win over the New Britain Rock Cats on Monday afternoon.  Heiker Meneses began the rally with a one-out triple down the right-field line, and was safe on a throw to the plate from the first baseman.  Portland had 11 hits off ‘Cats’ pitchers, including a 3-run double from Oscar Tejeda in the first inning.  Bryce Brentz and Reynaldo Rodriguez added run-scoring doubles.  Ryan Pressly tossed four innings, yielding 4 hits on 3 runs.  Ruben Flores worked two scoreless frames and Pete Ruiz gave up two runs over 2 IP.  Michael Olmsted earned the win, working a perfect ninth.  Olmsted was a former 9th round pick by the Mets in 2007.  Boston acquired the righty last May from Chico of the Independent League.
