MANCHESTER, New Hampshire (NEWS CENTER) -- The Sea Dogs scored five times in the first two innings and led wire-to-wire in the 7-2 win over the New Hampshire Fisher Cats in the penultimate game of the 2016 season on Sunday night in Manchester.
The Sea Dogs added four runs in the second, first on an RBI infield single by Cole Sturgeon that hit off of Font. One batter later Mauricio Dubon clubbed a three-run homer - his sixth of the season - to extend the Sea Dogs' lead to 5-0.
In his final start of the season, Mitch Atkins (W, 6-7) went 6.2 innings and allowed just one run on eight hits while walking one and striking out nine. Atkins ends the year with 145 strikeouts and will likely end the season as the league leader.
The Sea Dogs and New Hampshire Fisher Cats (Blue Jays affiliate) close out the regular season on Monday afternoon with a 1:35 PM first pitch from Northeast Delta Dental Stadium.
