PORTLAND — A two-run homer by Mike Olt was all the Sea Dogs (34-38) needed as they defeated the New Hampshire Fisher Cats (31-44) 2-1 in a rain-shortened six-inning game on Tuesday night at a Hadlock Field.

After a single by Michael Chavis to lead off the second inning, Olt hit an opposite-field home run off of Shane Dawson (1-8) into the Sea Dogs’ bullpen to give Portland a 2-1 lead.

Taylor Grover (2-3) earned the win with four scoreless inning of relief and allowed just two hits.

The game was delayed 19 minutes from the outset.  New Hampshire struck for a run off of Sea Dogs’ starter Travis Lakins in the first inning in a sac fly by Danny Jansen.  

Lakins allowed just the one run on two hits in two innings, but was lifted after a 24-minute rain delay in the bottom of the second.

The series continues on Wednesday evening with a 7:00 PM first pitch from Hadlock Field. RHP Kevin McAvoy (2-5, 5.37) is scheduled to start for Portland against RHP Sean Reid-Foley (4-5, 4.70) of New Hampshire. Tickets are available at seadogs.com or 207-879-9500.
