Dodger blue was once again a winning color Friday at Isotopes Park.
Oklahoma City, the Los Angeles Dodgers’ Triple-A affiliate, left the host Isotopes feeling especially blue, capping an abbreviated three-game series sweep with a 5-4 triumph.
It was the fourth straight loss for the struggling ‘Topes but this one hurt more than most. Albuquerque saw the potential tying run thrown out at home in the bottom of the ninth inning and left two more runners stranded.
An announced crowd of 7,639 – many of them in costume for Princess and Comic Crusader Night – went home disappointed as the ‘Topes were unable to generate much drama for the first eight innings.
