Isotopes' winning streak snapped

-A A +A

A sixth-inning home run by the Omaha Storm Chasers’ Brett Hayes helped to snap the Albuquerque Isotopes’ seven-game win streak Wednesday night.
The Storm Chasers prevailed in the nightcap of a doubleheader Wednesday in Omaha. Hayes’ two-run home run was all the offense the Storm Chasers would muster in that game, but it would be enough to top the Isotopes 2-1.
The Isotopes didn’t have any trouble putting runs on the board in the first game, however, picking up an 11-3 victory to add to the team’s season-best winning streak. The Isotopes (41-33) scored nine times in the third inning to put that game away early.
Rusty Ryal went 4-for-7 in the two games, knocking in three runs and scoring three runs, while Tony Gwynn Jr. also finished 4-for-7 and scored twice. Brian Barden had one hit in each game for Albuquerque, extending his hitting streak to 15 consecutive games.
In game one, Omaha went up 2-0 after two innings off Albuquerque starter Matt Magill, but Albuquerque answered by sending 13 batters to the plate in the top of the third.
Nick Buss and Matt Angle both doubled in runs in the inning and Ryal and Gwynn both had RBI singles.
Geison Aguasviva (4-3) pitched 3-2/3 innings of relief to earn the win.
