BINGHAMTON, N.Y. — Rafael Devers hit a two-run homer in the top of the first inning to give Portland the lead, but the Sea Dogs gave up seven straight runs after that and lost to the Binghamton Rumble Ponies 7-4 in an Eastern League game Friday at NYSEG Stadium.

It was the fourth straight loss for the Sea Dogs, who are on an eight-game road trip.

After Devers belted his ninth home run of the season, Binghamton tied it in the second inning on a two-run double by Champ Stuart. The Rumble Ponies took the lead in the third on an RBI double by former Sea Dog Cody Decker, who scored on a wild pitch to make it 4-2.

David Thompson and Colton Plaia each hit an RBI single in the fifth as Binghamton stretched the lead to 6-2. Decker added a sacrifice fly in the sixth.

Binghamton’s Mickey Jannis improved to 4-1, pitching six innings. He allowed two runs on four hits while striking out seven and walking none.

Portland scored twice in the ninth on back-to-back RBI doubles by Jeremy Barfield and Mike Olt.
