TV Drama Week at Isotopes Park concluded in style Sunday night.
The cast and crew of “Better Call Saul” were in a attendance as the Isotopes and El Paso Chihuahuas played a final dramatic game in their season series. It came three nights after the two teams were featured on the nationally televised “Minor League Game of the Week.”
El Paso got the first laugh pulling out a 13-12 triumph Thursday. Albuquerque got even Sunday.
Cristhian Adames’ two-out infield single and an ensuing throwing error by El Paso reliever Jay Jackson allowed Rafael Ynoa to race home with the winning run as the Isotopes pulled out a wild 5-4 victory. The ‘Topes trailed 4-1 when the ninth-inning started.
“I told (pitching coach Darryl) Scott before the inning started, ‘This one’s going to extra innings,’ ” Isotopes manager Glenallen Hill said. “Fortunately, those positive thoughts paid off. Who’d have thought it?”
