Andrew Politi and Jose Disla combined on a three-hitter as the Portland Sea Dogs completed a doubleheader sweep of the New Hampshire Fisher Cats with a 1-0 win Saturday night at Hadlock Field.

Nick Sogard scored the only run on a wild pitch in the fifth inning after hitting a one-out triple.

Politi (5-7) struck out eight in six innings before Disla closed it out for his first save with the Sea Dogs.

In Game 1, Devlin Granberg’s bases-loaded double in the sixth inning broke a 2-2 tie, and the Sea Dogs won 6-4, ending a three-game losing streak.

Ronaldo Hernandez and Hudson Potts each hit a solo home run for the Sea Dogs. Potts added a sacrifice fly during Portland’s four-run sixth inning, and Kole Cottam hit an RBI single.

Sea Dogs starter Victor Santos (4-3) gave up a two-run homer to Samad Taylor in the seventh but went the distance. He allowed nine hits, struck out five and walked none.
