Tepera threw eight shutout innings to lead New Hampshire to a 4-0 win over the Portland Sea Dogs in front of 6,250 fans. The win was the eighth in a row for the Fisher Cats, tying a franchise record set in 2004 and equaled in 2010.
Tepera scattered four hits and struck out seven with no walks to move his record to 8-6. He worked out of trouble in the first frame when leadoff hitter Peter Hissey doubled and moved to third on a bunt from Derrik Gibson. But that was as close as Portland would come.
The Fisher Cats are on the road for a four-game series at Trenton starting tonight.
