The Albuquerque Isotopes came through in the eighth inning, avenging a late-inning loss the night before at Omaha.
Albuquerque’s John Baker run-scoring single during the top of the eighth helped the Isotopes rally for a 6-4 victory Thursday.
The Isotopes (42-33), who have now won 9 of their last 11 contests, finish their road series tonight before returning to Albuquerque for a four-game set starting Saturday.
Albuquerque led 4-1 early in the contest, but Omaha’s Adam Moore hit a towering 3-run home run in the fifth to tie it.
In the eighth, Baker lined a single through a drawn-in infield to push home a run and Matt Wallach drew a walk with the bases loaded to force home another run, giving Albuquerque the win.
Omaha didn’t go down without a fight, however, getting two straight hits to start the ninth while Xavier Nady hit a hard line drive to first base that was speared by Rusty Ryal, who then doubled-up the Omaha runner on first.
The Isotopes’ upcoming four-game home series includes postgame fireworks Saturday night and a visit from popular traveling mascot Myron Noodleman Sunday night.
