TRENTON, N.J. — Joseph Monge lined a bases-loaded triple in the seventh inning Saturday afternoon to lift the Portland Sea Dogs to a 4-2 win over the Trenton Thunder at Arm & Hammer Park.
Portland (6-3) snapped a three-game losing streak and salvaged the final game of its three-game series against the Thunder (5-4), thanks to a four-run rally in the seventh.
Trenton starter Daniel Camarena took a five-hit shutout into the seventh, but Cole Sturgeon ended his outing with a leadoff, ground-ball single to right. Reliever Matt Marsh struck out Nick Longhi and Rafael Devers, but Jose Rosario drew a walk and Jordan Procyshen reached on an error by first baseman Dante Bichette Jr. That loaded the bases for Monge, who drove the first pitch he saw to left for a bases-clearing triple.
Danny Mars followed with a walk before Monge came home on an infield single by Aneury Tavarez.
Miguel Andujar, the Eastern League’s RBI leader, singled home Rashad Crawford in the third and fifth innings to give Trenton its 2-0 lead.
Jake Cosart (0-1) earned the win in relief of Jacob Dahlstrand, working 12/3 innings. Williams Jerez allowed one hit in two innings, and Jamie Callahan pitched a perfect ninth for his first Double-A save.
