Isotopes drop 3 straight to I-Cubs

-A A +A
By The Staff

The Albuquerque Isotopes spotted the Iowa Cubs three runs early and never made up that deficit as they dropped their series finale at Iowa Wednesday.
The Isotopes (35-43), who went into the series at Iowa on a high note and won the series opener, dropped three straight there, including a 6-2 defeat in the finale.
Albuquerque, after winning four of its previous five contests heading in, couldn’t build on that momentum, a recurring theme for the 2014 season. It again ties a season-worst 8 games under the .500 mark.
Starting pitcher Zach Lee, coming off a victory in his last outing, gave up all six of Iowa’s runs, all of them earned, as he was tagged for 7 hits, including a 3-run homer by Kris Bryant in the third inning.
The Isotopes did have some chances Wednesday, coming up with 8 hits, but stranded 7 runners on base and went just 2-for-10 with runners in scoring position. Clint Robinson went 3-for-4 in the game but never made it around to score.
Albuquerque came up with one run in the top of the first, but wouldn’t score again until the seventh.
For Iowa (40-36), starting pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada threw six strong innings and struck out 10 batters. Wada improved to 8-4 on the year and dropped his ERA to an impressive 2.73.
