Jason Urquidez is 3-0, 0.40 ERA (ER/22.1 IP) in his last 8 relief outings…He earned his fourth win of the season last night.

With last night’s win, the ‘Dogs improved to 25-12 since the All-Star break, and moved into fourth place for only the second time this season.  The Sea Dogs were in place for a half day on April 5th, when they dropped game one of the Opening Day doubleheader in Reading.

Nugget on tonight’s starter Jeremy Kehrt: 5-0, 1.93 ERA (8 ER/37.1 IP) in his last seven starts (Portland is 7-0).

Last night Gerrit Cole hit 100 mph numerous times on the Hadlock Field radar gun.  Since I’ve been calling games with Portland (2005), I’ve seen Daniel Bard hit a 100 and Erie’s Bruce Rondon (last homestand)…Cole was consistently in the upper 90’s with his fastball, hitting 98 on a majority of his nine strikeouts.
The righty retired the first 14 batters until Xander Bogaerts nailed a double to right field.  Here’s what Cole had to say about Bogaerts – “It was 80 mph and I tried to get it in there for a strike, but I ran the risk of letting him get the bat head out on it. A lot of people would roll over it, but he did a good job of going the other way.”

Part Two of the roadtrip…’Dogs in Erie

The Sea Dogs open up a three-game series on Friday night against the Erie SeaWolves (Tigers affiliate) from Jerry Uht Park in downtown Erie, Pa.  Portland swept the ‘Wolves last week at Hadlock Field.  Last night, the ‘Dogs completed their first season-series victory against the Akron Aeros since 1998.

There was a lot of buzz in the air last night at Canal Park, and most of the people in the stands probably had no idea what was going on.  19-year old Xander Bogaerts made his Double-A debut for Portland.  In his third at-bat, he launched a 2-1 pitch over the batter’s eye in right-center field.  Bogaerts finished 2-for-5 and handled every ball that was hit to him at shortstop.

“I didn’t expect to hit a home run,” Bogaerts told milb.com. “I was just looking to make contact. I got to a 2-0 count and he threw me a fastball that I pulled down the third-base line pretty hard. The next pitch he shook his head ‘no’ and I knew I was going to get a fastball.

Portland: Bradley Jr. 8, Hissey 7, Smith 5, Brentz 9, Shaw 3, Bogaerts 6, Gibson DH, Vazquez 2, Dent 4, RHP Stolmy Pimentel (4-5, 4.99)

Erie: Johnson 8, Romero 6, Castellanos DH, Lennerton 3, Garcia 9, Fields 7, Bishop 5, Jones 4, McCann 2, RHP Jared Gayhart (1-2, 4.28)
