Isotopes can manage just two hits in loss
The Albuquerque Isotopes had their three-game winning streak snapped Tuesday night in their road trip opener against the New Orleans Zephyrs.
Tim Federowicz hit a solo home run with one out in the eighth inning to break up a no-hit bid by the Zephyrs Brad Hand, but the Isotopes could muster little else in a 4-1 loss at New Orleans.
The Zephyrs scored twice in the first and twice in the fourth to earn the win. Albuquerque’s Will Savage (7-2) took the loss, going seven innings.
Prior to Tuesday’s loss, the Isotopes had won their final three games of a 12-game homestand against Oklahoma City to move ahead by 1-1/2 games in the PCL American Southern standings. But with the loss at New Orleans, combined with Oklahoma City’s 2-0, rain-shortened win over Nashville, the Isotopes’ lead slipped to just half a game.
Albuquerque, which had scored 29 runs in those three wins over Oklahoma City, managed only two hits, Federowicz’s homer and a bunt single in the ninth.
In two of those wins, however, Albuquerque had the services of Los Angeles Dodgers star Matt Kemp, who was playing with the Isotopes on rehab assignment.
Kemp went 5-for-7 with two home runs and 5 RBI Sunday and Monday in Albuquerque.
