Bridgewater, New Jersey – The Somerset Patriots (81-52) were defeated 5-2 by the Portland Sea Dogs (74-61) at TD Bank Ballpark on Thursday night.

Continuing his rehab assignment with the Patriots, Harrison Bader went 3-for-4, including two doubles and a two-run single that accounted for the Patriots’ only runs in the game.
