(PR) Portland, ME – The Trenton Thunder (2-4) could not overcome a five-run bottom of the fourth inning as the Portland Sea Dogs (3-3) won 7-0 Tuesday night in front of 3,225 fans at Hadlock Field. The Sea Dogs smacked five doubles in the win, and Sea Dog starter Alex Wilson (2-0, 2.45) hurled six shutout innings.

Portland would bring nine hitters to the plate in the inning, scoring five runs on three doubles and two singles.
Thunder third baseman Bradley Suttle was the only Trenton hitter to record a hit Tuesday night, as the Texas-native had two singles next to his name in the box score.
