ERIE, Pa. — Tim Roberson lined an RBI single to drive in Aneury Tavarez and Tzu-Wei Lin drove in a run with a fielder’s choice in the top of the seventh inning as the Portland Sea Dogs edged the Erie SeaWolves 7-6 Wednesday night.

The Sea Dogs (41-70) jumped to a quick lead with three runs in the second when Lin lined a triple to center to score Connor Harrell, then Kuery De La Cruz delivered a homer to right-center.

Erie (43-66) answered in the bottom of the inning, sending eight men to the plate and scoring four runs highlighted by a bases-loaded double by Harold Castro.

Portland starter Aaron Wilkerson had a rocky start, lasting only 4 2/3 innings, surrendering five earned runs on five hits, walking three and striking out four.

The Sea Dogs tied the game in the fifth when Carlos Asuaje lined Portland’s second triple of the game to center field, driving in Jordan Weems and Dustin Lawley.

After the Sea Dogs went ahead 7-5 in the top of the seventh, the SeaWolves pulled within a run in the bottom of inning. Jason Krizan led off with a walk and advanced to second on Mike Augliera’s wild pitch. Dominic Ficociello knocked him home with a single to right.

Augliera picked up the victory out of the bullpen, tossing 2 1/3 innings while allowing one run on two hits with three strikeouts.

Erie got one last chance with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, as designated hitter Dean Green reached first on a dropped third strike that eluded catcher Weems.

Jorge Marban came in to strike out Ficociello to end the threat and pick up his fifth save on the season.
