Portland Sea Dogs first baseman Anthony Rizzo lined a double into right field with one out in the ninth inning, breaking up a no-hit bid by the Harrisburg Senators Monday night at Hadlock Field.
Harrisburg starter Aaron Thompson held the Sea Dogs without a hit for six innings, but then left when his pitch count reached 96. Two relievers retired six straight batters. Closer Zech Zinicola struck out Luis Exposito to begin the ninth, but then Rizzo connected on a fastball.
The Sea Dogs lost 3-0.
Jeremy Kehrt (1-4, 2.97) pitched OK for the Dogs (5 IP, 5 H, 1 R [0 ER] 2 BB, 5 K).
Will have more on the Red Sox (Victor Martinez appears headed for the DL) and the other minor league teams later.Tweet
