The Albuquerque Isotopes picked up their second straight road victory Monday night in an attempt to salvage what has been a rough road trip.
The Isotopes, who won the series finale over the Fresno Grizzlies Sunday to earn a split in that series, pounded out 20 hits in their opener at Salt Lake.
Albuquerque (21-23) put up crooked numbers in all but three innings to down the Bees 15-9. Along the way, Albuquerque hit 6 home runs, including a pair by right fielder Jamie Romack.
Along with the 6 home runs, Albuquerque also finished with 6 other extra-base hits to club Salt Lake.
Prior to its wins Sunday and Monday, Albuquerque had dropped five of its seven road games. The Isotopes are currently on their longest road trip of the season, 12 games, but will only have four games at home when they return Friday night before hitting the road again.
Salt Lake (14-31) came back on Albuquerque in the ninth inning, scoring six runs off reliever Josh Judy before Judy finally put the game away.
