Sea Dogs rained out again, will play two on Saturday

The Portland Sea Dogs’ game against the Harrisburg Senators was postponed because of rain Friday night in Pennsylvania and will be made up as part of a doubleheader starting at 5 p.m. Saturday.

It’s the 14th postponement of the season for the Sea Dogs, who are 2-2 on a seven-game trip.

Left-handers Dedgar Jimenez and Trey Ball are scheduled to pitch for Portland on Saturday. Right-hander Gregg Ross will start one game for the Senators; the other starter had yet to be announced Friday night.


WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS: Simone Manuel backed up her historic victory at the Olympics with a win in the 100-meter freestyle at Budapest, Hungary.

The 20-year-old Texan stormed from behind on the return lap and caught Sweden’s Sarah Sjostrom on the very last stroke, touching in a time of 52.27 seconds to win by just four-hundredths of a second.

Last summer, Manuel became the first African-American woman to win an individual swimming gold at the Olympics.

Yulia Efimova of Russia bested American rival Lilly King in the women’s 200 breaststroke, easing a bit of the sting from two silvers in Rio and another loss to King in the 100 breast stroke at Budapest.
