Tuesday was a busy day for the Albuquerque Isotopes.
Along with making two big roster moves, the Isotopes went into extra innings to defeat Omaha.
Albuquerque trailed 1-0 after seven innings in Omaha, but a solo home run from right fielder Alex Castellanos tied the game. In the top of the 10th, Tim Federowicz and Rusty Ryal came through with RBI hits to give Albuquerque a 3-1 win.
Matt Magill started the game for the Isotopes (8-5), going six strong innings before being replaced by Steve Smith. Smith (1-0) set down all nine batters he faced to earn the win.
Earlier Tuesday, it was announced that relief pitcher Josh Wall, who led the PCL in saves last season, was called up to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Replacing him on the pitching staff is lefty Kelvin De La Cruz, who hadn’t been scored upon this season pitching for Double-A Chattanooga.
