Redbirds Wrap Homestand with 4-2 Win
MEMPHIS, Tennessee - The Memphis Redbirds knocked out 14 hits, 13 of which were singles, setting the table for a 4-2 win in the series finale over the Albuquerque Isotopes (Rockies) Thursday night at AutoZone Park.
The Redbirds (26-15) have now won 16 of their last 20 games.
Chad Huffman and Rangel Ravelo had identical lines of 3-for-4 with a run and an RBI, and Patrick Wisdom and Carson Kelly each had two knocks for the Redbirds. Luke Voit had a first-inning double for the only extra-base hit of the night for Memphis.
Mike Mayers did not allow a run into the eighth inning, and he ended allowing two on eight hits in 7.0 innings to move to 3-4 on the year. He struck out five and walked two on the night. John Brebbia picked up his third save of the season by retiring all six Isotopes he faced in 2.0 innings of relief to finish the contest.
Memphis scored three of its runs in the first two innings, jumping on Albuquerque (21-19) starter Ryan Carpenter from the get-go. The Isotopes plated a pair in the top of the eighth to get within 3-2, but the Redbirds got one of those back in the home-half when Ravelo singled, moved to third on a two-out Harrison Bader single and scored when Wisdom singled to left-center field.
Brebbia recorded his third save in eight games with a perfect ninth inning.
The Redbirds head west to Fresno and Sacramento before returning to AutoZone Park for an eight-game homestand, covering nine days, May 27-June 4.
