Isotopes lose in extra innings
The faint hopes for the Albuquerque Isotopes of making the 2011 Pacific Coast League playoffs are fading fast.
Barring a near-miracle, the Isotopes will likely be staying home for the postseason following a loss Wednesday night at Sacramento. That loss, combined with a win by American Southern division-leading Round Rock, put the Isotopes 11 games back with less than 20 games remaining on the season.
Albuquerque couldn’t hold on in extra innings Wednesday. After scoring a run in the top of the 13th to go up 3-2, Sacramento’s River Cats rallied for a pair of runs in the bottom of the 13th to win 4-3.
Albuquerque (63-62) scored twice in the second inning but would be blanked for eight straight innings.
The Isotopes left 13 men on base and wasted a three-hit night by right fielder Russ Mitchell.
