New Orleans Sweeps Albuquerque

By Albuquerque Isotopes | August 7, 2018 5:41 PM

Despite Jordan Patterson's record-breaking home run and Mike Tauchman's grand slam, the Isotopes were blown out, 15-6, as New Orleans completed the four-game sweep. The Isotopes have now lost 11 of 15 and 20 of 28.

 

Patterson connected on his 61st career home run as an Isotope, becoming the club's new all-time home run king. The previous record of 60 was held by Isotopes great, Jason Wood.

 

Other offensive highlights of the afternoon came off the bats of Raimel Tapia and Mike Tauchman. After going 3-for-4, Tapia extended his hitting streak to a season-best 13 games.

 

Tauchman connected on his second grand slam of the homestand, finishing the day 3-for-5 with five RBI. Tauchman now has 11 RBI over his last four games.

 

The only pitcher for the Isotopes to not surrender a run was Rockies rehabbing reliever Chris Rusin who tossed a scoreless frame.

 

After Wednesday's league-wide off day, the Isotopes head to Fresno to open a four-game set with the Grizzlies (Triple-A Astros). Albuquerque will return home on Monday to open a new seven-game homestand.
