Albuquerque blanked by Zephyrs
One night after posting a rare shutout win, the Albuquerque Isotopes were shut out themselves.
New Orleans pitcher Tom Koehler (6-4) scattered five hits through 6-1/3 innings as the Zephyrs blanked the Isotopes 3-0 in New Orleans.
The Isotopes, who swung red-hot bats during their homestand, have managed just five runs in three games at New Orleans.
John Ely (4-4) got touched for eight hits in 5-2/3 innings but was only scored on twice.
Albuquerque’s loss, combined with a 4-1 win by the Oklahoma City RedHawks over Nashville, dropped the Isotopes into second place in the PCL American Southern standings.
Albuquerque (31-24) will play the series finale against New Orleans tonight before starting a four-game set at Round Rock, Texas.
