    Late HR lifts Albuquerque Russell Mitchell belted a two-run home run in the final at-bat for the Albuquerque Isotopes to lift them past Omaha’s Storm Chasers Tuesday. Mitchell’s homer off Everett Teaford gave the Isotopes a 6-4 win over the Storm Chasers in Omaha. Albuquerque, which was just coming off an up-and-down homestand and had lost two straight to New Orleans, opened its eight-game road trip with a badly-needed win. Albuquerque also chopped a game off division-leading Round Rock’s edge, although Round Rock still holds a five-game advantage.
