‘Topes today

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

Vs. Sacramento, 6:35 p.m.

Radio: 610 AM

Promotion: Adult Fun Run

Probable starters: River Cats RHP Marcus Walden (0-1, 6.23) vs. Isotopes RHP Matt Magill (2-1, 4.45)

Tuesday: Isotope Jamie Romak was 3-for-3, with two RBIs and a second-inning home run, to lead Albuquerque past Sacramento 8-4.

Righty Red Patterson (2-1) picked up the win to end a four-game losing streak for the ‘Topes. Patterson allowed two runs, seven hits and two walks in six innings in his first start with Albuquerque since a one-game call-up by the Dodgers last week. Walter Ibarra added two hits and two RBIs for the ‘Topes in the win.

This and that: For the 11th consecutive season, Albuquerque Isotopes officially licensed merchandise ranked in the top 25 in sales of minor league teams, according to Minor League Baseball. There are 160 domestic teams listed. The totals were calculated from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2013, so the new El Paso Chihuahuas were not eligible.

The Isotopes saw a familiar face in the opposite dugout Tuesday night in the form of OF Nick “Chili” Buss. He met his new team on Tuesday after the River Cats bused up from El Paso. Buss was designated for assignment Thursday, and he was claimed by the Oakland A’s on Sunday and optioned to the River Cats.
