The Akron RubberDucks were held silent in a 4-0 game one loss to the Portland Sea Dogs and dropped game two, 6-2, in a doubleheader Sunday at Canal Park.

Turning Point
In game one the Sea Dogs broke the scoreless tie with a three-run fifth inning by sending eight batters to the plate, collecting four singles and a walk. That 3-0 lead would be enough to sustain Portland and lead them to the game one win. In game two, the Sea Dogs also utilized a big inning, a four-run third inning, to take a 4-2 on a C.J. Chatham RBI single, a Bobby Dalbec two-run double, and a Joey Curletta RBI single.
Mound Presence
In game one, starter Tanner Tully eased through the first three and then worked out of a one-out, bases-loaded jam in the fourth. His day would end in the fifth, however, when three straight singles got Portland on the board. Two of his inherited runners scored with Rob Kaminsky on the mound. Dalbert Siri allowed a solo shot in the seventh. Jake Paulson , the Akron starter in game two had not allowed a run in June until he allowed four runs in the third inning. That inning was enough to sink the RubberDucks, but the Akron bullpen would surrender two more runs to the Sea Dogs in relief of Paulson.
Duck Tales
Game one saw the RubberDucks stifled by Portland starter Dedgar Jimenez, with Akron only able to muster four hits. Alexis Pantoja had a two-single game. In game two, Wilson Garcia opened the scoring for the RubberDucks with a two-run home run deep to the right field seats. The RubberDucks would get another run back in the sixth inning to bring the deficit to 6-3 on a Connor Marabell solo home run.
