Portland, ME - The New Hampshire Fisher Cats saw their three-game winning streak snapped by the Portland Sea Dogs Friday night in a 7-2 loss at Hadlock Field.

New Hampshire took an early two-run lead in the top of the second. Alex Monsalve, Matt Dean and Derrick Loveless delivered consecutive singles, the last of which made it 1-0 'Cats, and Jonathan Davis plated a run with a sacrifice fly to put the Fisher Cats up 2-0.

Portland took the lead for good in the bottom of the second. A two-out, two-run double from Jordan Procyshen tied the game then a single from Deiner Lopez put the Sea Dogs in front 3-2.

The Red Sox affiliate added a single run in the sixth and three in the seventh (thanks to a Jeremy Barfield three-run blast) to go on to win 7-2.

Matt Dean had two hits in three trips in his return to action after a month on the inactive list.

The series continues Saturday night in Portland. LHP Tom Pannone (7-3, 3.03 ERA) will make his final start of 2017 while Portland will send LHP Henry Owens (3-6, 5.01 ERA) to the hill. First pitch is set for 6:00 p.m. and can be heard locally on AM 610 WGIR and online via iHeartRadio or the MiLB First Pitch app.
