Isotopes earn split with Zephyrs

-A A +A
By The Staff

The Albuquerque Isotopes used a big first inning to gain some offensive momentum, then cruised the rest of the way as they defeated New Orleans in their series finale Monday.
The Isotopes put their first five hitters aboard in the bottom of the first to push across four runs against the Zephyrs. That set the tone for a big 11-1 victory Monday at Isotopes Park.
That game was the finale of both that series and Albuquerque’s homestand.
Joc Pederson and Alex Liddi both had RBI hits in the opening inning and Mike Baxter drove in Clint Robinson with a sacrifice fly.
Albuquerque tacked on two more runs in the second inning and had two runs each in the fifth and sixth.
In its previous two games of the series, both won by New Orleans, the Isotopes combined for just four runs.
The homestand was a rough one for the Isotopes (32-39). After winning two straight road series prior to returning to Albuquerque, the Isotopes were swept by Round Rock and dropped 2 of 3 to New Orleans (38-33) before Monday’s win.
Sunday’s 6-3 loss put Albuquerque at a season-worst eight games under .500.
In the series finale, Robinson and Liddi both finished 3-for-4. Robinson had a 2-run home run in the sixth and Liddi drove in a pair of runs.
On the mound, Carlos Frias (4-4) went 8 innings, striking out 10 batters.
