The New Hampshire Fisher Cats enter their final homestand of the season tonight against the Portland Sea Dogs. The teams are both trying to track down the Trenton Thunder for the second playoff berth in the Eastern Division.
The Fisher Cats, 66-67, and Sea Dogs play at 6:35 each of the next four nights.
The Sea Dogs are set up to help themselves, or perhaps even the Fisher Cats, down the stretch. They finish up with five games at home against Trenton, starting on Friday.
He is 2-0 with a 1.50 earned run average in four starts for the Sea Dogs and through 18 innings has allowed 10 hits, struck out 32 and walked 13 batters. He has not faced New Hampshire.
Pena, 22, is not as highly touted as his teammate, but he has already proven himself to the Fisher Cats.
Portland comes back with right-hander Matt Barnes on Wednesday against righty Austin Bibens-Dirkx (3-4, 2.11 ERA).
Right-hander Casey Lawrence goes for New Hampshire against Keith Couch (10-3, 3.49) on Thursday.
Barnes, at No. 8, and Owens are three of the top prospects playing for the Sea Dogs, according to the soxprospects.com. Third baseman Garin Cecchini (No. 3), who was hitting .296 going into Sunday night’s game, is another.
Lawrence, just up from High-A Dunedin, made one start earlier this year Triple-A Buffalo. He started two games and made three appearances with the Fisher Cats last year and gave up 20 hits over 12 2/3 innings.
