Isotopes earn split at Iowa, travel to Omaha

-A A +A

The Albuquerque Isotopes snapped a two-game slide and earned a split of their series against Iowa Monday night.
The Isotopes banged out 15 hits and held the Iowa Cubs to just one run after the third inning to grab an 11-5 win. After winning the series opener, the Isotopes (7-5) dropped two straight games before Monday’s win.
Today, Albuquerque travels to Omaha for a four-game set. It will make a quick stop back at Isotopes Park starting Saturday before hitting the road again.
Monday, shortstop Dee Gordon went 3-for-5, scored two runs and drove in three runs to set the plate for the Isotopes. Meanwhile, Scott Van Slyke hit a pair of solo home runs to aid the cause, while Tim Federowicz and Alex Castellanos also went long.
In all, Albuquerque had six extra-base hits and touched up Cubs starter Drew Carpenter (1-2) for seven hits in 4-1/3 innings.
On the mound for the Isotopes, Stephen Fife (1-1) picked up the win. Fife struggled early, giving up four earned runs in the first three innings, but settled down to shut the Cubs out in the fourth and fifth.
Relievers Peter Moylan and Chris Withrow allowed just a run and two hits between them the rest of the way.
