Doyle Collects Four Hits in 6-4 Loss to Space Cowboys

September 23, 2022 - Pacific Coast League (PCL) - Albuquerque Isotopes News Release

Sugar Land, TX - Despite a four-hit night by Isotopes center fielder Brenton Doyle, Space Cowboys catcher Korey Lee launched a pair of homers that marked the difference in a 6-4 victory for Sugar Land on Friday night at Constellation Field.

Doyle continues to impress in his first stint at Triple-A, as he is 8-for-15 with a pair of triples and one homer in four games.

The Isotopes got on the board first when Doyle tripled with one out, then scored on a base hit by Carlos Pérez. Sugar Land came back with four runs in the bottom half off Logan Allen, highlighted by Lee's two-run homer.

Albuquerque tied the game with a three-run fifth inning. Pérez delivered another RBI single, as did Jonathan Morales. Following a pitching change, Dom Nuñez brought home the tying run with a sacrifice fly.

Lee struck again with a solo homer in the sixth, as the Space Cowboys went back ahead, 5-4.

Despite the rough beginning for Allen, he was able to hang in for six-plus innings. He allowed just three baserunners after the first inning, including a stretch where he retired 11 hitters in a row.

Topes Scope: - Doyle recorded his fourth career four-hit game, and first since July 24, 2022 for Double-A Hartford. His career high was a five-hit game for Advanced-Rookie Grand Junction on Sept. 2, 2019. Tonight was the first time Doyle reached base safely five times in a contest since the aforementioned July 24 performance.

- Doyle has tripled in two straight games, the first time an Isotopes player has a three-bagger in consecutive contests since Ryan Vilade on Aug. 21 at Tacoma, then Aug. 23 vs. Round Rock.

- Herron extended his on-base streak to 13 games. During the stretch, he is batting .378 (17-for-45) with three doubles, a triple, three homers, six RBI and two stolen bases.

- Pérez has two hits in three of his last four games. He is 6-for-15 with a double, homer and five RBI during this series. Pérez is tied with Coco Montes for second on the club with 29 multi-hit contests.

- Allen became just the fourth Isotopes starter to work into the seventh inning this season (Riley Smith, 6/18 vs. SL; Karl Kauffmann, 8/26 vs. RR; Zach Neal, 9/15 vs. OKC).

- The Isotopes have surrendered 141 runs in the first inning, the most in all of professional baseball. The four-run first also marked the 65th time Albuquerque has allowed four or more runs in a frame this season.

- Albuquerque's three-run fifth was the 116th time they have scored at least three times in an inning during the campaign.

- Lee was the 18th player to have a multi-homer game against the Isotopes in 2022, and the first since C.J. Hinojosa on Sept. 10 vs. El Paso.

- Montes is hitting .212 in 52 road games, compared to .327 in 56 contests at Isotopes Park. Tonight was the 21st time he went hitless on the road.

On Deck: Albuquerque will play their penultimate road game of the season Saturday. Right-handed pitchers Brandon Gold and Jimmy Endersby are scheduled to start. First pitch is set for 5:05 p.m. from Constellation Field.
