This is the seventh time in the 15-year history of the franchise that the Sea Dogs have advanced to the Eastern League playoffs. Portland has advanced to the Eastern League finals on four occasions, and won its first Eastern League title in 2006 by defeating the Akron Aeros.

The first round of the Eastern League playoffs is a best out of five series scheduled to get underway on Wednesday, September 3rd. Games one, two and five (if necessary) will be played in Trenton, New Jersey. While the Sea Dogs will host games three and four (if necessary). Games three and four are scheduled to be played at Hadlock Field on Friday, September 5th at 7:00 PM and Saturday, September 6th at 6:00 PM.

The two division series winners will square off in a best of five series for the Eastern League Championship Series. Should the Sea Dogs advance to the Championship series, Games one and two would be played at the home of the Southern Division winner. The Sea Dogs would host games three, four (if necessary), and five (if necessary) at Hadlock Field on Friday, September 12th, Saturday, September 13th, and Sunday, September 14th.
