The Isotopes (32-32) were shut out for the second time in three days by the Omaha Storm Chasers (29-34), dropping Monday afternoon's contest, 2-0. The loss marks the fifth shutout the Isotopes have suffered in 2018.
Albuquerque's bats could not get rolling, mustering six hits against Omaha's pitching staff. Jordan Patterson was the only Isotopes with a multi-hit game, finishing the day 2-for-4 at the plate with a double.
The Storm Chasers scored the contest's only runs against Isotopes starter David Holmberg in the seventh inning. Both runs were unearned as a result of an error by Isotopes shortstop Elliot Soto.
Holmberg pitched well despite the loss, allowing the aforementioned two earned runs over his 6.2 innings on the mound. The southpaw did not allow a walk and struck out six.
After a league-wide off day on Tuesday, the Isotopes return home to Isotopes Park to open a seven-game homestand against the Memphis Redbirds and Nashville Sounds. First pitch from Isotopes Park on Wednesday is set for 6:35 p.m.
