Portland lost 9-3
A four run first set the stage for the Beavers loss. Joey Hamilton took the loss, allowing five runs, all earned, in five innings. Hamilton had allowed one run his previous outing, but his ERA still sits at 6.00.
Marty McLeary pitched one inning and allowed four runs on three hits and two walks. He did, however, strike out the side. For McLeary, it was the first runs he allowed all season.
Portland did pound out 11 hits, but just one went for extra bases, a double by Rico Washington in the second that scored Ben Petrick. Petrick also drove in a run for the second straight day.
