Isotopes rally from 3 runs down

-A A +A

The Albuquerque Isotopes rallied for four unanswered runs to top the Round Rock Express Monday.
The Isotopes and the Express are in a battle for first place in the Pacific Coast League’s American Southern standings. The Express (45-34), who won the first two games of the series Saturday and Sunday, were two games up on the Isotopes heading into today’s play.
Albuquerque trailed 9-6 after 6-1/2 innings, but got three runs in the bottom of the seventh to tie it up and scored a run in the bottom of the ninth to pick up the walk-off 10-9 victory.
It was a wacky bottom of the ninth, featuring two walks, two hit batsmen, a flubbed sacrifice attempt and an ejection of both Round Rock catcher Jose Felix and manager Bobby Jones.
When the dust settled, John Baker drew a bases-loaded walk to force home Alex Castellanos for the winning run. The Isotopes only got one ball into the field of play the entire inning, that being Castellanos’ sacrifice attempt on which leadoff hitter Matt Angle was thrown out at second.
Nevertheless, the Isotopes (43-36) picked up their first win of the four-game set. The series finale, and the finale of the short homestand for the Isotopes, was this afternoon.
