Sky Sox take walk-off win
The Albuquerque Isotopes led after 8-1/2 innings Thursday night at Colorado Springs, but couldn’t hold onto the lead.
Tim Wheeler came through with a RBI single for Colorado Springs’ Sky Sox as they escaped with a 9-8 walk-off win in the second game of their four-game series with the Isotopes.
Half an inning earlier, the Isotopes rallied for three runs to take an 8-7 advantage, but Albuquerque reliever Robert Carson (2-5, 7.28 ERA) couldn’t hold the edge in the bottom of the ninth.
In the top of the ninth, Joc Pederson hit his 31st home run of the year. That was followed up two batters later by Brock Peterson’s two-run homer after a Clint Robinson single.
Albuquerque and Colorado Springs play their series through Saturday. Following this series, the Isotopes will be at Oklahoma City for four games before ending their 2014 season with three games against the Las Vegas 51s starting Aug. 28.
The Isotopes are now 58-74 on the season.
Las Vegas (74-60) has already locked up the PCL Pacific Southern division title.
