Sea Dogs' Offense Awakens in 10-3 Victory

Portland, Maine - A chilly night at Hadlock Field couldn't cool off the Sea Dogs' bats, as Portland took game two of their four game series over the Trenton Thunder by a final score of 10-3.

Six days after Mike McCarthy (W, 2-1) picked up the win in a 10-1 Sea Dogs victory at Arm & Hammer Park in Trenton, he threw his best outing of the season, going six scoreless innings and allowing just four hits while walking one and striking out two.  McCarthy has now won two straight games, thrown 11 consecutive scoreless innings, and joins Mike Augliera as one of two Sea Dogs to throw quality starts this season.

A night after they were shut out, the Portland offense faced a tough test as they had to face Yankees' top prospect Luis Severino (L, 1-1), but they were able to put up six runs (three earned) on eight hits in five-plus innings.  The Sea Dogs got on the board in the 2nd, when Blake Tekotte (2-for-4, 2B, 3B, RBI, BB, 2 R) drilled a triple over the head of center fielder Jake Cave.  Jonathan Roof (1-for-3, RBI, BB, R) followed up with an RBI single to give Portland the early 1-0 lead.

The Sea Dogs added another run in the 4th on an RBI double by Tekotte, scoring Tim Roberson.  Every player in the Portland lineup reached base in the contest, while eight of nine starters posted at least one hit.  Portland batted around in the 6th, scoring six runs on four hits and sending 10 men to the plate.  The Sea Dogs also took advantage of defensive miscues by Trenton, scoring seven unearned runs in the game on five Trenton errors - a new season high for the Thunder, who came into the game having committed just nine errors in their first 14 games.

The series continues tomorrow afternoon, first pitch at Hadlock Field comes at 1:00 PM.  William Cuevas (1-1, 6.75) will make his third start of the year for Portland, while Miguel Sulbaran (1-0, 2.57) takes the mound for Trenton.  Pregame coverage will begin on the WPEI U.S. Cellular Sea Dogs Radio Network at 12:40 PM.  Tickets are still available, visit the box office at Hadlock Field, go to seadogs.com, or call 207-879-9500 to book your nine-inning vacation today!

Portland Public Health Receives $263,000 Grant for Sodium Reduction in Communities Program

Portland, Maine - Portland’s Public Health Department recently received $263,000 in funds from a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Grant which was awarded to the State of Maine CDC to reduce the amount of high sodium foods in some of Cumberland County’s most vulnerable populations. The grant period is October 2014-October 2016. Portland is one of two local public health departments, along with the Maine CDC, funded from this grant award. Funds will be distributed from the City of Portland’s Public Health Division to MaineHealth and Good Shepherd Food Bank.

The goal of the grant is to increase the accessibility of lower sodium foods in our communities. This grant will work through cafeterias of hospitals and groceries disseminated through food pantries in Cumberland County.

“With one in three Maine residents experiencing high blood pressure, reducing sodium in our diets needs to be a priority,” said Alex Kanakis Hughes, MPH, Program Coordinator for the Sodium Reduction in Communities Program for the City of Portland. “This partnership between our local health department, the largest hospital system in the state and the largest and only food bank in Maine display a state-wide motivation toward tackling heart disease and stroke, starting with a reduction in sodium in some of our most vulnerable residents.”

MaineHealth will work with two of its member hospitals to increase availability and accessibility of lower sodium foods as part of a comprehensive nutrition policy in their cafeterias which are open to staff, patients and visitors of the hospitals. The member hospitals partnering on this project are Maine Medical Center and Spring Harbor Hospital. Please contact Naomi Anderson-Schucker for more information at 207.661.7554.

Deborah Deatrick, Senior Vice President of Community Health Improvement, offered, “We are thrilled to partner with the City of Portland to further advance our work in providing food to our employees, patients, and visitors that looks good, tastes good and is good for you.”

The Good Shepherd Food Bank will work to decrease the sodium content of foods they purchase for distribution to their 600 partner agencies as part of a comprehensive nutrition policy. In total, 15% of the food that Good Shepherd Food Bank distributes is purchased by the organization. Please contact Courtney Kennedy for more information at ckennedy@gsfb.org or 207.577.4847.


“We are excited to partner with Portland on this important initiative,” said Courtney Kennedy, Nutrition and Education Manager at Good Shepherd Food Bank. “With 1 in 7 Mainers relying on their local food pantry for the food they need each month, it’s crucial that the Food Bank distributes as much nutritious food as we can to our partner agencies.”
