Rafael Ynoa drew a bases loaded walk in the bottom of the 10th to send the Isotopes (33-33) to a 12-11 victory over the Fresno Grizzlies at Isotopes Park. The win was Albuquerque's fifth walk-off victory of the season.

Despite the 11 runs scored by Fresno, Albuquerque only sent four pitchers to the hill. Starter Barry Enright allowed eight runs over 5.1 innings, surrendering three home runs.

Isotopes lefty Jerry Vasto was the first to relieve Enright. The southpaw allowed two solo home runs over his 1.2 innings on the mound. Austin House then entered the game and allowed a solo home run during his 2.0 innings of work. Carlos Estevez earned the win for the Isotopes after tossing a scoreless 10th inning.

The six home runs allowed by the staff was the most the Isotopes have surrendered all season with the previous high of five coming on June 3 vs. Sacramento.

At the plate, the Isotopes had one of their best games of the season. Ryan McMahon and Mike Tauchman combined for seven RBI on the evening. McMahon finished the day 4-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI. Tauchman went 4-for-6 with three RBI.

Rosell Herrera also recorded a four-hit game for the Isotopes.

The Grizzlies and Isotopes wrap up their series on Friday as Fresno becomes the Tacos and Albuquerque becomes the Green Chile Cheeseburgers. Matt Flemer (2-5, 7.34) is slated to get the start for the Green Chile Cheeseburgers while Trent Thornton (4-4, 4.60) gets the start for the Tacos. First pitch in the biggest food fight in baseball history is set for 7:05 p.m.
