Omaha went yard five times, led by Kila Ka'aihue's four RBIs, to outlast Trayvon Robinson and Albuquerque in an 18-13 victory Thursday night.
Ka'aihue, who lifted one of the Storm Chasers' home runs, also scored three times. Johnny Giavotella went 3-for-5 and fell a triple shy of the cycle, joining Paulo Orlando and Irving Falu as the other Omaha batsmen to plate three runs. Lorenzo Cain, Mike Aviles and Falu all homered.
The Isotopes likely would have thought their offensive output -- a high in 10 games -- would have been enough to end a seven-game skid. But it wasn't.
The victorious lineup scored eight times against Albuquerque starter Ian Snell, who lasted four innings, and reliever Travis Schlichting (3-3), who pitched the fifth and sixth frames.
Omaha's pitchers didn't fare much better. Starter Vin Mazzaro saw his season ERA jump more than a run -- from 3.93 to 4.97 -- after yielding eight runs on eight hits and six walks over four innings.
Robinson collected his 19th and 20th homers early in the game. He lifted the second longball off of reliever Kevin Pucetas (5-4), who, despite allowing four runs on five hits in two innings, picked up the win.
