Owens, Sea Dogs top Fishers
The win pulled the Sea Dogs into a tie with New Hampshire at 66-69 for third place in the Eastern League's Eastern Division, four games behind second-place Trenton (70-65) and the final playoff spot. The teams meet again tonight at 6:35.
Big Portland lefty Henry Owens (6-foot-6) threw 6 2/3 innings of shutout baseball, striking out six and allowing just two hits and one walk. Owens threw 97 pitches and picked up the win to improve to 3-0, dropping his ERA to 1.09.
Portland took a 2-0 lead with a pair of runs in the second inning. Catcher Matt Spring led off with a single and Deven Marrero walked. Stroman got two outs, but Shannon Wilkerson's slow roller to second was fielded by Amadeo Zazueta and thrown away, allowing both runs to score.
