Isotopes win in extras Thursday

-A A +A

Tony Gwynn Jr. came through with a two-run double in the 11th inning and Jeremy Moore’s two-run homer later in the inning boosted the Albuquerque Isotopes to a win Thursday.
Albuquerque earned a split on the road in its four-game series against Round Rock, scoring five runs in the 11th to win 9-4.
Albuquerque returns to Isotopes Park for a four-game series against Memphis starting tonight.
Thursday’s game was about as even as it could be through 10 innings, with both teams recording 4 runs, 7 hits, 2 errors and had left 9 runners on base.
The big hits in the 11th by Gwynn and Moore were the only hits the two had Thursday. They had gone a combined 0-for-9 prior to that.
The Isotopes (35-32), who have now alternated wins and losses for 13 games, used six pitchers against Round Rock (37-31). Steve Ames (2-2), who threw the bottom of the 10th, earned the victory.
