Tuesday’s game at Iowa rained out

The Albuquerque Isotopes’ game Tuesday against the Iowa Cubs was postponed by rain.
Instead, the two teams tried to squeeze two games in today. Results of the first game, which started at 11:05 a.m., weren’t available as of press time.
Albuquerque, the Triple-A franchise of the Los Angeles Dodgers, was scheduled to start its four-game series at Iowa Tuesday. That series started following Albuquerque’s successful trip to Oklahoma City, where it took 2-of-3 contests in that series.
Albuquerque lost opening game against Oklahoma City Friday, but won Saturday’s and Monday’s games with pitchers Roman Colon and Jon Link earning the victories.
This is the first road swing of the young 2011 season for the Isotopes (7-4), who are just a game behind Round Rock in the PCL American South division standings.
The Isotopes will return to Albuquerque Saturday for a quick four-game series against New Orleans. Saturday’s game, starting at 7:05 p.m., will include the first post-game fireworks display of the season.
Sunday, the Isotopes will hold a pregame Easter Egg Hunt for kids at Isotopes Park.
