Probable starters: Isotopes RHP Carlos Frias (8-4, 5.01) vs. Rainiers RHP Taijuan Walker (4-2, 4.14) Radio: 610 AM

Sunday: Stefen Romero went 3 for 5 with a pair of solo home runs and visiting Tacoma handed the Isotopes an 8-5 loss in front of 6,786 fans.

Romero’s first homer was part of a four-run Rainiers rally in the third inning that sent Albuquerque on its way to a fifth straight loss.

Tacoma roughed up ‘Topes starter Red Patterson (4-8) and led 7-0 before Carlos Triunfel’s RBI triple in the bottom of the fifth. That was the only inning in which the Isotopes managed more than one hit until Mike Baxter singled and Joc Pederson hit his 24th homer with two outs in the ninth.

Tim Federowicz epitomized a luckless night for the home team, finishing 2 for 5 with three lineouts.

This and That: Clint Robinson turned in a 1-for-4 night, including one run scored, an RBI and his second triple of the season. In his last 10 games, Robinson is hitting .444 (16-for-36) with nine runs scored, one double, a triple, two home runs, 11 RBIs and eight walks. He was also intentionally walked once and hit by a pitch.
