Isotopes hold off Express to win

By The Staff

The Albuquerque Isotopes are getting hot again, although it may be too little, too late to compete for a division title.
Albuquerque held on to top Round Rock 6-5 Monday at Isotopes Park. Round Rock, which is neck-and-neck with the Isotopes for the No. 2 spot in the PCL American Southern division, trailed 6-3 after six innings but pushed two runs across in the seventh to get back into the ballgame, but could never find the equalizer.
Kelvin De La Cruz came on in relief of starter Jonathan Sanchez (6-3) and struck out two of the four batters he faced in the seventh to quell Round Rock’s comeback attempt. Peter Moylan and Javy Guerra, who got the save, held the Express scoreless in the eight and ninth for the win.
The Isotopes (72-65) have now won five of six since returning home from a disastrous trip to Oklahoma City, getting swept in the five-game set. But on the strength of that sweep, the RedHawks (78-59) have opened up a six game cushion at the top of the standings with seven games remaining on the Isotopes’ regular season schedule.
Albuquerque hosts its final three games at Isotopes Park starting tonight. Tonight’s game, as well as Wednesday’s and Thursday’s, starts at 6:35 p.m.
They finish the season on the road with four games at New Orleans starting Friday.
