The Reno Aces sent the Albuquerque Isotopes home with a second straight loss Thursday night.
Albuquerque’s late rally fell short in Reno. With one out in the inning, Isotopes Miguel Rojas and Walter Ibarra came through with back-to-back run-scoring hits in the top of the ninth to chop Reno’s lead down to just one run, but the two were left stranded on base.
Reno held on for a 5-4 victory, the second straight loss for Albuquerque as it travels back to New Mexico for its home opener.
The Isotopes (4-3) will face the Tacoma Rainiers, whom they faced in their season-opening series in Tacoma, for four games starting tonight. First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m.
One night after ace pitcher Stephen Fife got thumped in the early innings, Albuquerque’s No. 2 starter Matt Magill also ran into trouble quickly. The Aces (4-4) put up three runs in the bottom of the third to go up 4-0 at the time.
Albuquerque’s Nick ‘Chili’ Buss had a good night at the plate, going 3-for-4 with two RBI.
Rojas had a pair of hits in four at-bats Thursday.
