The Albuquerque Isotopes’ four-game winning streak was snapped in a rain-shortened contest Tuesday.
Fresno’s Grizzlies came up with the lone run of Tuesday’s contest in the fourth inning. Meanwhile, the game was washed out in the top of the sixth after it had become official, giving the Grizzlies a 1-0 victory at Isotopes Park.
Prior to the short contest, Albuquerque had won four of five contests — all four wins coming in a row — to start the second half of its season.
Albuquerque (48-56) is trying to make up some ground on the Las Vegas 51s, who lead the Pacific Southern division by a wide margin.
But Tuesday, the Isotopes managed to pick up just four hits in five trips to the plate. Fresno’s Jason Berkin (8-6) kept Albuquerque off-balance, striking out seven Isotopes batters in five innings to pick up the win.
The only run of the game was given up by Albuquerque starter Jeff Bennett (4-5), who actually struck out five batters himself and allowed six hits. The game-winner was a double by Fresno’s Chris Dominguez that drove home Brandon Hicks.
Albuquerque center fielder Joc Pederson was ejected in the sixth inning by home plate umpire Ryan Goodman.
