Sea Dogs 6, Fisher Cats 2

Andy Fermin smacked his third homer of the season, but the Fisher Cats couldn’t overcome an early 2-0 deficit in a 6-2 loss to Portland in the final game before the Eastern League All-Star break. Casey Lawrence took the loss as New Hampshire dropped four of five in the series against the first-place Sea Dogs.

Lawrence came into the game having not allowed an earned run since May 23 against Portland, a span covering 30.1 innings. He pitched a perfect first inning, but the Sea Dogs has a two-run rally with one out in the second, with Jonathan Roof’s single ending Lawrence’s streak.

The Fisher Cats answered in the third with Andy Fermin’s third home run of the season to cut the deficit to 2-1. Portland grabbed the run right back in the bottom of the inning with Michael Almanzar’s two-out single to center for a 3-1 lead.

Lawrence (L; 6-5) allowed one more run in the fifth before exiting the game. He was tagged for three runs on seven hits, striking out six and walking to as his four-game win streak came to an end.
