Red Sox pitcher Luis Perales wins debut with Sea Dogs

BASKETBALL

Mickey Gasper drove in four runs and Luis Perales pitched five strong innings in his Double-A debut Sunday, leading the Portland Sea Dogs to a 10-4 victory at the Altoona Curve in an Eastern League series final in Altoona , Pennsylvania.

Perales, a 21-year-old right-hander considered one of Boston’s best pitchers, struck out five of the first six Altoona hitters and allowed just two hits and one earned run in his five innings. He struck out seven and walked one.

The Sea Dogs took a 3-0 lead in the first inning thanks to a two-run single by Gasper, who added a sacrifice fly in the seventh and an RBI double in the ninth.

Tyler Miller, also a recent promotion from Class A Greenville, hit his first Double-A home run in the fourth inning.

Portland carries a three-game winning streak into its next series that begins Tuesday at Hadlock Field against the Akron RubberDucks.
