Portland (5-6) tied the game with three runs in the top of the seventh, but Heath led off the bottom of half with a walk and moved to second on a sacrifice. Derek Bouchard was intentionally walked, and Zach Bean followed with a grounder behind second base that nearly resulted in a double play, but the throw to first was wide as Heath raced home for the winning run.
Bean struck out six and allowed six hits for the win.
