Isotopes Hold off Sugar Land

September 19, 2021 - Triple-A West League (AAA West) - Albuquerque Isotopes News Release

Isotopes 8 (52-66), Skeeters 6 (69-49) - Constellation Field | Sugar Land, TX

AT THE DISH: The Isotopes hit four home runs Sunday, led by Joshua Fuentes who blasted a solo shot in the third and a three-run homer in the fifth ... Elehuris Montero and Taylor Snyder also went deep ... Fuentes finished 3-for-5 ... The four long balls tied for Albuquerque's most in a game against Sugar Land this year, as they did so on Mother's Day at RGCU Field.

TOEING THE RUBBER: Ryan Rolison (2-2, 7.12) pitched 5.2 innings of five-hit, four-run ball with no walks and six strikeouts, but most of the damage came in the sixth as he had only allowed one baserunners through five ... Ben Bowden struck out a pair in a perfect seventh and has now pitched 7.2 innings of scoreless baseball at Triple-A this year with one hit allowed and 13 strikeouts ... Justin Lawrence inherited a bases-loaded, nobody out jam in the eighth and allowed just one run to cross, then Lawrence got out of a bases-loaded one-out situation in the ninth to secure his 12th save of the season.

TOPES TIDBITS: Fuentes is now batting .368 in 39 career day games with the Topes, delivering 12 doubles, five triples, six home runs and 40 RBI in the sunshine ... His two-homer afternoon was the 13th multi-home run game of the season for the Isotopes and first since Greg Bird hit two on Aug. 2 vs. Salt Lake ... Albuquerque scored their most runs in a road game since Aug. 22 at Las Vegas when they lost 13-11.

ON DECK: The Isotopes and Skeeters will play the fifth contest of this six-game series tomorrow evening in Texas, with right-handers José Mujica (2-11, 8.96) and JP France (5-1, 3.53) set to toe the rubber for the respective teams. First pitch is scheduled for 6:05 MT (7:05 CT).
