Collin Ferguson drove in three runs in his Triple-A debut while Barry Enright tossed 5.2 scoreless innings in his first game in the Rockies organization as the Isotopes defeated the Sounds, 6-0, Sunday afternoon at First Tennessee Park. The shutout victory was the Isotopes' second of the season as they split their four-game series in Nashville.
Ferguson went 2-for-3 with a walk and hit a two-run home run to right in the fourth inning. The first baseman helped the Isotopes take a 2-0 lead in the second inning as he and Rafael Ynoa hit back-to-back RBI singles. Ferguson was called up to Albuquerque on Saturday from Double-A Hartford.
Enright allowed just three hits, no walks, and struck out five batters to earn the win. The 31-year-old right-hander was acquired by the Rockies last Wednesday in a trade from the Padres. Enright previously pitched eight games for the Isotopes in 2014 while they were a Dodgers affiliate.
Jordan Patterson hit his team leading sixth home run of the season in the sixth inning, while Albuquerque relievers Jerry Vasto, Carlos Estevez and Sam Moll limited the Sounds to just one hit in the final 3.1 innings to close out the victory.
The Isotopes continue their eight-game road swing through Tennessee, starting a four-game set Monday against the Memphis Redbirds (Triple-A Cardinals) at AutoZone Park. Albuquerque will send right-hander Matt Flemer (1-3, 7.43) to the mound while Memphis has not announced a starting pitcher. First pitch will take place at 5:35 p.m.
