The Albuquerque Isotopes come home tonight to face Memphis in the first of a four-game series with the Redbirds at Isotopes Park. Michael Antonini (1-3, 4.84 ERA) is scheduled to start for the ‘Topes against the Redbirds’ Nick Additon (1-6, 5.40).
The ‘Topes had a rare night off Wednesday. They enter a seven-game homestand in second place, 3 1/2 games behind Oklahoma City, in the American Southern Division of the Pacific Coast League.
The homestand is studded with promotions, starting with tonight’s Baillio’s Home Appliance Giveaway. Several fans will have their ticket stubs drawn to win prizes: two HD TVs, an Apple iPod Touch, and the grand prize: a top-load, high-efficiency washer-dryer valued at more than $1,500.
Memphis at Isotopes, 7 p.m.
Radio: KNML-AM (610)
Friday’s game features a live performance by Dancing Bat Boy BBoy McCoy. Saturday’s promotion is a fireworks show. Sunday ( 6 p.m. game), the first 1,500 kids (14 and under) at the park get a free Isotopes skateboard deck.
