Isotopes Drop Doubleheader To Las Vegas | Albuquerque Isotopes News
First baseman Wilin Rosario turned in his third-straight multi-hit performance in the first game of Tuesday night's doubleheader. He finished 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI. During his recent hot stretch, Rosario is now 12-for-16 with two runs scored, a double and four RBI.

Despite a strong performance from Rosario, the Isotopes could manage only three runs in 14 innings in a doubleheader sweep at the hands of Las Vegas. Albuquerque starter John Lannan allowed seven runs on seven hits in 3⅔ innings to put them in a hole in an 11-2 loss in game one.

The nightcap saw Albuquerque muster just three hits, all of them singles, in the nightcap. Right fielder Tim Wheeler had two of the three hits for the Isotopes, scoring their only run in a 3-1 loss.

Double-A - New Britain Rock Cats 8, Harrisburg Senators 7 (10 innings)

Catcher Tommy Murphy (No. 12 PuRP) hit a two-run, walk-off home run in the 10th inning to push the Rock Cats' record to 18-7 with an 8-7 win over Harrisburg. It was Murphy's second home run of the game and fifth of the season. Shortstop Trevor Story (No. 8 PuRP) continued his hot start to the season, going 2-for-3 with a double and pair of walks, scoring four times in the victory.
