    Isotopes’ pitching gets walloped Monday vs. Tucson The Albuquerque Isotopes don’t seem to be having much trouble scoring against the Tucson Padres during their current series, but stopping the Padres from scoring has been an issue. The Isotopes have scored 19 runs in the first two games of the series, but Tucson has won both contests. The Padres won Sunday’s series opener 10-8, then followed that up with a 14-11 victory Monday. To finish up its current homestand with at least a .500 mark, the Isotopes must win both tonight and Wednesday. They split their four-game set with Las Vegas just prior to the Tucson series.

    Young wildlife don’t need rescuing Some wildlife throughout New Mexico have become stressed and or displaced by drought conditions or most recently by wildfires. While at first glance the animals may appear to be lost or abandoned, they usually do not need to be rescued. The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish is asking people not to rescue animals such as deer fawns, elk calves, bear cubs, baby birds, or others that may appear to be lost, injured or abandoned.  Most often, the wild mothers hide their babies while they forage or drink. Usually, mothers are closer than you think.

    Express takes 3-2 win The Albuquerque Isotopes managed just two runs Thursday off Round Rock pitchers Zach Jackson and Yoshinori Tateyama, falling 3-2 on the road. Jackson (4-12) scattered six hits over 7-2/3 innings to pick up the victory for Round Rock. Albuquerque couldn’t provide much support for starting pitcher Will Savage (10-4), who pitched seven strong innings. Thursday’s loss, combined with an extra-innings win by Oklahoma City over Iowa, ties the two teams for the top spot in the PCL American Southern division.
