In the eighth, Moore, the Isotopes’ left fielder, again came through with a base hit to drive in two runs. Moore finished the game going 3-for-5.
Geison Aguasviva (2-2) was credited with the win, going 1-2/3 innings in relief of starter Matt Palmer. Memphis reliever Nick Additon (3-2) was tagged with the loss.
