By The Staff

The Albuquerque Isotopes exploded for nine runs in the bottom of the fifth inning of Monday’s game at Isotopes Park.
Albuquerque sent 14 batters to the plate in the fifth inning as it downed the Salt Lake Bees 11-8 to win its second game of the four-game set. The final game of that series is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. today.
Joc Pederson had a two-run triple and Griff Erickson had a two-run single in the Isotopes’ big inning Tuesday.
Pederson, who had missed two games due to illness and had just one hit in his previous 12 at-bats going into the game, went 2-for-3 and brought home the two runs from his designated hitter spot.
It was a slugfest between the two teams, which combined for 32 hits on the night.
Salt Lake starting pitcher Brooks Raley managed to get just one out in the fifth inning. He gave up eight earned runs on 10 hits in the loss.
Isotope starter Jeff Bennett (2-1), who got the win, wasn’t much better. He surrendered seven earned runs and 14 hits in six innings, but the bullpen was good enough to keep the Bees from coming back.
The Bees actually led 5-1 after 3-1/2 innings and 5-2 heading into the bottom of the fifth before the big Albuquerque rally.
