‘Topes today

........................................................................................................................................................................................

Home vs. El Paso, 6:35 p.m.

Radio: 610 AM

Probable starters: Isotopes RHP Red Patterson (0-0, 2.89) vs. Chihuahuas RHP Branch Kloess (1-0, 5.73).

Promotion: Bark in the Park.

Thursday: Mike Baxter’s seventh-inning homer broke a scoreless deadlock and the Isotopes held on for a 2-1 win over the Chihuahuas in front of 5,412 fans at Isotopes Park. Baxter’s solo shot and Miguel Olivo’s RBI single provided just enough support to back a strong pitching performance by Henry Sosa and three Albuquerque relievers.

Sosa worked in and out of trouble through six scoreless innings, twice leaving the bases loaded. Yimi Garcia (3-0) allowed a solo homer to former Isotope Alex Castellanos but picked up the win with 11/3 innings of work. Jose Dominguez worked a 1-2-3 ninth for his first save.

Olivo, Joc Pederson and Clint Robinson had three hits apiece for the ‘Topes, who won their third straight. El Paso went 0-for-10 with runners in scoring position.

This and that: LHP Paco Rodriguez joined the Isotopes, while LHP Daniel Moskos was placed on the disabled list with a left calf strain. Rodriguez claims a 3.18 ERA in eight relief appearances with the Los Angeles Dodgers this season.
