Isotopes just a half-game away from division lead with 11-0 win
The Albuquerque Isotopes pounded out 14 hits on the way to a huge 11-0 win over the division-leading Round Rock Express Monday.
The win moved the Isotopes to within a half-game of the PCL American South Division lead with one game left to play at Round Rock. That game is tonight.
Right fielder Trent Oeltjen went 3-for-4 with five RBI Monday. Oeltjen had a two-run home run in the third inning off Express starter Zach Jackson to help get the ball rolling for offensively. The home run was Oeltjen’s eighth of the season and he leads the club with 34 RBI.
JD Closser, Albuquerque’s first baseman, went 3-for-5 and drove in a pair of runs, one of five Isotopes to finish with at least one RBI.
Albuquerque scored three runs in the sixth and three more in the seventh to turn the game into a laugher.
For the Express, Jackson (4-2) went 5-2/3 innings, giving up eight earned runs and 11 hits.
On the mound for Albuquerque, Randy Keisler picked up his first win of the year, going six innings. Keisler (1-2) gave up six hits, all of them singles, and allowed just one runner to reach third base.
