Late rally lifts Albuquerque

The Albuquerque Isotopes closed out their eight-game road swing with a win Tuesday.
The Isotopes scored twice in the top of the ninth to top New Orleans 6-4. Ivan De Jesus and Russell Mitchell both had RBI singles to give the Isotopes the victory.
Albuquerque (57-54) had lost four straight games and five of six on the road trip before Tuesday’s win.
At 7:05 p.m., the Isotopes return to Albuquerque to open a four-game series against the Tacoma Rainiers. Following that series, they will host Salt Lake City for four games.
