The Albuquerque Isotopes took over first place in the PCL American South standings with a 6-3 win over the Round Rock Express Tuesday night.
Albuquerque (33-25) leapfrogged over Round Rock (33-26) with the win, taking a half-game edge in the division standings. Albuquerque never trailed in the game, scoring single tallies in the top of the first and second innings.
On a scorching hot night in Round Rock — game-time temperature was 99 degrees — the Isotopes’ bats remained red hot a night after one of team’s biggest offensive performances of the season.
With the Isotopes up 2-0 in the fourth, John Lindsey and JD Closser hit back-to-back solo shots to extend the lead. The Isotopes survived a rally by the Express in the bottom of the fifth and tacked on a pair of insurance runs in the eighth.
Meanwhile, starting pitcher Tim Sexton (2-0) went 5-1/3 innings, giving up just two runs on seven hits. It was Sexton’s second-straight victory.
Albuquerque has a travel day today. It opens a quick, four-game home set with the Nashville Sounds Thursday night.
