PORTLAND, Maine — The state’s lone professional baseball team concluded a record-breaking season Monday, but a dubious one at that.

The Portland Sea Dogs, the Double-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox, wrapped up the season with an 8-3 loss to neighboring rival New Hampshire Monday, finishing the season with a 59-83 record, the worst in franchise history.

The 2011 campaign marks Portland’s worst finish since the Sea Dogs compiled a 60-81 mark in 1994, the team’s inaugural season.

On a positive note, three former Sea Dogs players were promoted to the big leagues over the weekend, as Ryan Lavarnway, Nate Spiers and Kyle Weiland were recalled by the Red Sox on Monday. printed on August 24, 2017
