PORTLAND  — The Portland Sea Dogs rallied from a six-run deficit today only to see New Britain score twice in the ninth inning for a 9-7 win at Hadlock Field.

Sea Dogs starter Stephen Fife was shooting for his 11th win, but did not make it out of the fourth inning, when he allowed five runs, including Brian Dozier’s three-run homer.

Chih-Hsien Chiang went 2 for 3 for the Sea Dogs, including a controversial double in the fifth inning.
Chiang’s blast appeared to be a home run over the yellow line in right field, but the umpires did not see it that way, and Chiang stopped at second base.

Portland Manager Kevin Boles argued the call and was ejected.

The Sea Dogs (36-57) return to Hadlock at 7 p.m. Monday against the Binghamton Mets.
