It was a seesaw battle on Sunday afternoon at Hadlock Field with the SeaWolves winning the series, taking down the Portland Sea Dogs 6-4.

Erie jumped ahead in the top of the second inning against Sea Dogs starter Brett Kennedy when Wenceel Perez led off and connected on a solo home run to right.

Portland quickly tied the game in the last of the second against Erie starter Ty Madden when Stephen Scott led off with a solo home run to right.

The SeaWolves regained the lead in the fourth. Dane Myers tripled with one out, Gage Workman and Jon Rosoff each walked with two outs, loading the bases for the top of the lineup. Daniel Cabrera ripped a two-run single to right, his second of three hits on the day, for a 3-1 lead.

The Sea Dogs took the lead in the last of the fifth. Izzy Wilson led off with a solo home run to right and Cam Cannon walked. Wil Dalton hit into a fielder’s choice for the first out but Wilyer Abreu walked, putting the tying run in scoring position. Madden retired Tyler Dearden for the second but gave up an RBI single to Christian Koss, tying the game. Madden was lifted for Brendan White who gave up a ground ball to Hudson Potts and on an error by the shortstop Andrew Navigato, Abreu scored for a 4-3 Portland advantage.

The Dogs held the lead into the seventh when Quincy Nieporte tied the game with his league-leading 25th home run off of reliever Jake Thompson. Myers singled with one out and stole second. Dillon Dingler then doubled home Myers for a 5-4 Erie advantage.

Erie added an insurance run in the top of the eighth as Nieporte belted his second home run in as many at-bats, this time over the Maine Monster in left. It was his 26th long ball of the season and he now has a league-leading 69 RBIs. Nieporte finished the series with five home runs.

Elvis Alvarado worked a 1-2-3 ninth with a pair of strikeouts to earn his first Double-A save.

White (5-4) earned the win hurling 1.1 scoreless innings. He did not allow a hit while walking one and striking out a pair.

Thompson (0-1) took the loss allowing two runs on four hits with a walk and a strikeout.

Madden took the no-decision allowing four runs, three earned, on four hits with four walks and six strikeouts in his Double-A debut.
