610 AM/95.9 FM

Probable starters: Express LHP Framber Valdez (3-2, 2.37) vs. Isotopes RHP Jeff Hoffman (6-6, 7.91)

Sunday: The Isotopes, playing as their alter ego the Mariachis, were no-hit for seven innings before striking for five runs in the eighth and the game-winner in the ninth for an improbable 6-5 win over the Express/Chupacabras. Pat Valaika’s three-run triple was the big blow in the eighth. Dom Nuñez then sent a crowd listed at 10,660 home happy with a solo homer, his 17th of the season, in the ninth. Yency Almonte, Albuquerque’s fourth pitcher on the night, pitched a scoreless ninth inning for the win. The Isotopes/Mariachis were outhit 10 to 4, but made those four hits count.

This and that: Albuquerque has won four games in a row, tying its season high. … The team has an 11-6 record, 7-2 at home, while playing as the Mariachis.
