River Cats 12 (25-26), Isotopes 5 (24-28) - Isotopes Park - Albuquerque, N.M.

 

AT THE DISH: Josh Fuentes led the way at the plate for the Isotopes, finishing the game 4-for-5 with three doubles and two runs scored. The three doubles from Fuentes tied a franchise record for two-baggers in a single game … Sam Hilliard connected on the only home run of the afternoon for the Isotopes, a two-run shot in the first inning. The home run for Hilliard was his team-leading 16th of the season.

 

TOEING THE RUBBER: Isotopes starter Ryan Castellani was the hard-luck loser, allowing two earned runs over 5.0 innings on the mound. The right-hander struck out five and walked two … Phillip Diehl tossed two scoreless innings out of the bullpen … DJ Johnson struggled in relief, allowing eight runs over 1.2 innings.

 

TOPES TIDBITS: Fuentes' three-double performance was the 21st time in team history a player has recorded three doubles in one game, the last being Raimel Tapia on June 22, 2018 at Fresno … Now at 24-28, the Isotopes are four games under .500 for the first time in 2019.
