PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - From the optmism of four wins to clinch a playoff spot to three straight losses: it isn't how the Portland Sea Dogs wanted to wind down the regular season, but that's the reality after a 9-4 loss to Trenton on Sunday.
One of the Boston Red Sox organization's highly-touted pitching prospects Henry Owens (3-1) suffered his first loss with Portland. He lasted 5 2/3 innings allowing 3 runs on 6 hits with 8 strikeouts. Two of the runs were first inning home runs.
The Sea Dogs (68-73) wrap up their season on Monday against the Thunder (74-67). First pitch is set for 1 p.m.
