ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE)- The Albuquerque Isotopes needed a win on Monday afternoon to split their series with the Tacoma Rainiers. They went on to get the 3-2 win after a 4th inning surge.
Things didn’t start out well for the Topes as they trailed 2-0 after Eddie Butler gave up a 2-run homerun in the third inning. The Topes did go on to answer right away though, as in the top of the fourth, Tom Murphy tied the game on a 2-run triple off the wall in right center.
That then led to a Jordan Patterson RBI single, and that’s all the Isotopes would need, as they won 3-2.
They now head home for an eight game home stand. They start on Wednesday against Sacramento at 7:05 p.m.
