PORTLAND (AP) – Chris Durbin homered and drove in two runs for the Portland Sea Dogs in a 5-2 victory over the New Hampshire Fisher Cats on Sunday.

The win was Portland’s 14th straight against New Hampshire in the final regular-season meeting between the two teams.

Portland was helped by New Hampshire’s defensive lapses. Fisher Cats starter David Purcey (3-3) walked two, hit a batter and threw a wild pitch, while Portland’s Scott Youngbauer doubled and scored on an error in the fourth.

Conor Brooks (4-2) earned the win in relief. Portland’s Hanley Ramirez had an RBI single and Durbin added a run on a sacrifice fly.
