Portland offense rips Fisher Cats
Portland ripped a season-high 18 hits and marked a season-high in runs, too, to knock off the Fisher Cats, 15-4, in the finale of a three-game series at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium on Thursday night.
The Sea Dogs, who have won two of their last six, lead the Eastern Division at 23-15.
The Fisher Cats open a seven-game roadtrip in New Britain tonight. They play three against the Rock Cats and then move on to Portland for four more against the Sea Dogs from Monday through Thursday.
Brandon Workman allowed seven hits over six innings to improve to 5-1. He struck out six and walked one.
A night after three Sea Dog pitchers walked 14 Fisher Cats, they walked one.
In the next three innings, they turned 10 hits — seven of them for extra bases — into a 9-3 lead.
At the end of four, Shaw had three hits, including two doubles and a home run, and eight of the nine Sea Dog batters had a hit.
