NEWS CENTER- Mike McDonald made history by becoming the first Mainer ever to play for the Sea Dogs. His debut was much shorter than anyone could've anticipated.
The Camden-Rockport alum started Sunday's game at Trenton and pulled in the first inning after sustaining an undisclosed leg injury. McDonald retired the first two batters he faced before tweaking his leg as he gave up his first hit. After allowing two more hits, he was pulled. The former University of Maine pitcher last two thirds of an inning and gave up two runs.
The Portland bullpen kept the Sea Dogs in it with 8 1/3 innings of shutout ball. Jeremy Hazelbaker's RBI single in the ninth scored Ryan Dent as Portland completed the comeback 3-2.
