Roger Bernadina’s 10th inning walk-off home run gave the Albuquerque Isotopes (49-63) a 6-4 win against the El Paso Chihuahuas (57-53) Wednesday night at Isotopes Park. Bernadina finished the game 3-for-5 with two doubles, a homer, two runs scored and three RBI.
The Isotopes and Chihuahuas traded blows much of the night. Albuquerque took an early lead on Tommy Murphy’s solo home run in the second before El Paso responded with a pair in the fourth.
The 'Topes plated a pair of their own in the fourth to retake the lead, and added another in the fifth on an Angelys Nina two-out single.
The Chihuahuas chipped away with runs in the sixth and eighth to tie it and send the game to extras.
After escaping a bases loaded jam in the top of the 10th, the Isotopes led off the home half of the inning with a single before Bernadina blasted his game-winning two-run shot over the left field wall.
The Isotopes received plenty of multi-hit performances Wednesday evening. In addition to Bernadina’s three-hit evening, Trevor Story, Cristhian Adames, Angelys Nina and Murphy all posted two-hit performances. Adames now has hits in six straight games, including multi-hit outings in four of his last five appearances.
