Albuquerque 8, RedHawks 2

Ivan DeJesus Jr., Jay Gibbons and Russ Mitchell drove in two runs each as the Isotopes snapped the RedHawks' three-game winning streak in front of 5,766 Thursday night at RedHawks Field at Bricktown.

Albuquerque scored runs in the second and sixth to build a 3-1 lead before blowing the game open with a four-run eighth.

Four Isotopes had multiple hits in the game.

Koby Clemens was the only RedHawks starter — including pitcher Sergio Perez — without a hit. Clemens drew two walks.

Perez led off the third with a triple.

Brian Bogusevic extended his hitting streak to seven with a seventh-inning RBI single.

Robinson Cancel and Anderson Hernandez had two hits each in the loss.

The RedHawks were 3 for 14 with runners in scoring position in the game and left 12 runners on base. For the series, the RedHawks hit .208 (10 for 48) with runners in scoring position and stranded 41 runners.


When RedHawks outfielder Collin DeLome slid into second base in early May, he felt a pinch in his shoulder but thought he could fight through it.

Part of that was because of how well he was hitting at the time.

After playing in several games after the injury, DeLome went for an MRI and was diagnosed with a partially torn labrum.

DeLome was 8 for his last 15 in May before being hurt.

“I played with it as long as I could,” DeLome said. “It's one of those things, where as a hitter, seeing the ball that well doesn't happen all the time and I didn't want to stop but my arm was keeping me from doing what I needed to.”

DeLome was 1 for 4 in his return.
