Isotopes win to close out series
The Albuquerque Isotopes closed out their five-game road trip with a victory Thursday night, just in time to head home for tonight’s contest against Iowa.
The Isotopes scored four runs in the top of the eighth Thursday to put away a tight contest, topping the Oklahoma City RedHawks 8-2 at Oklahoma City.
The Isotopes will face the Iowa Cubs tonight in Albuquerque to open an eight-game homestand. Tonight’s game is set for 7:05 p.m.
Albuquerque, which had been swinging hot bats until its last three games at Oklahoma City, all losses, got its offense going again, pounding out 15 hits off four different pitchers.
