Thursday: Five Albuquerque home runs were not enough to get the job done for the home team as Round Rock rallied for a 6-5 victory in front an announced crowd of 8,253 at the Lab.

Clint Robinson, Alex Liddi, Jeremy Hazelbaker (twice) and Johnny Monell all went deep for Albuquerque, but the Express plated three runs in the top of the eighth against reliever Paco Rodriguez to sweep the four-game set.

Jared Hoying and Adam Rosales each drove in runs to tie the game for Round Rock, and a passed ball allowed Hoying to score what turned out to be the winning run from third base.

Albuquerque loaded the bases in the bottom of the ninth, but Robinson grounded into a force out at third to end the threat.

The comeback spoiled a solid night for Albuquerque starter Red Patterson, who allowed six hits and three runs over seven innings.
