The Portland Sea Dogs "kind of slept through the game offensively," according to manager Arnie Beyeler, as the Sea Dogs dropped a 6-3 decision to the New Hampshire Fisher Cats here at Stadium.

Portland managed only four hits but still had the go-ahead run at the plate in the ninth inning.

Down 6-1, the Sea Dogs scored twice in the ninth on three walks, an infield error and a hit-batter (Ray Chang). But with the bases loaded an no outs, reliever Alan Farina struck out Jorge Padron, Ryan Khoury and Chih-Hsien Chiang.

Kyle Weiland pitched well with his start (5 IP, 6 H, 2 R (1 ER), 0 BB, 3 K). Reliever Ryne Miller gave up four in the seventh on a solo home run and then a three-run blast by Eric Thames.

The Sea Dogs' first run came in the second. Ryan Lavarnway doubled, went to third on Chang's single and scored when Padron grounded into a double play.

Chang may be out for the rest of the season. He was hit on the hand and will go for X-rays Monday.

The Sea Dogs will complete their season with an eight-game home stand, starting Monday night at 7.

The Red Sox play tonight on the ESPN game. According to the media covering the game in St. Petersburg, Yaimaco Navarro is getting the start at second base. Here is the Boston lineup:

Scutaro SS; Drew RF; Martinez C; Ortiz DH; Beltre 3B; Lowell 1B; Nava LF; McDonald CF; Navarro 2B: (Lackey P)
