Buss runs down Isotopes, 5-4

-A A +A
By The Staff

A former Albuquerque Isotopes star hurt his old club in a loss Tuesday night.
The Isotopes opened a four-game road series against the Sacramento River Cats. The River Cats, who have been one of the hottest teams in the PCL of late, earned a 5-4 decision at Raley Field.
Sacramento scored four times in the fifth inning off Isotopes starter Red Patterson. Patterson allowed five straight hits in the fifth before being pulled in favor of Josh Judy.
The leadoff hit of that inning was a solo home run by former Albuquerque outfielder Nick Buss. Buss, who was a PCL All-Star last year, was traded to Sacramento shortly after the start of the season.
Since departing Albuquerque, Buss has also spent some time up with Sacramento’s big club, the Oakland A’s.
He had a pair of hits in Tuesday’s win.
While the River Cats have now won seven straight games, the Isotopes have been reeling of late. They’ve dropped three of their last four decisions and four of their last six, including losing two of three games at home to Reno just before the start of this series.
That loss drops the Isotopes to five games under .500.
Patterson (2-4) took the loss. Patterson, who has been very good for much of the season but has gotten little run support, gave up 10 hits in just four-plus innings of work.
