ALBUQUERQUE, NM - Following a 2:45 weather delay at the outset of the contest, the Albuquerque Isotopes held on to beat the San Antonio Missions in the rubber game of the series 11-10 in a game that didn't finish until nearly 1 AM local time on Saturday.
Both teams clubbed three homeruns and San Antonio actually outhit Albuquerque, 18-10, but couldn't overcome a six-run fifth inning that put the Isotopes in front for good.
Angel Perdomo (3-1) was the victim of the big frame. After fanning the side in the fourth, the lefty yielded six runs in the following inning. Elliot Soto provided the big blast with a grand slam, which was immediately followed by a solo homer off the bat of Sam Hilliard. The inning marked the second time in as many nights that Albuquerque put up a six-run frame.
Lucas Erceg extended his multi-hit game streak to a career-high five games while David Freitas recorded multiple hits for the fifth straight game as well.
The road trip continues on Saturday night as San Antonio opens a four-game series in El Paso.
