Isotopes Isolate Chihuahuas’ bats, Win 5-0

Isotopes starter Ryan Carpenter tossed 7.2 innings, striking out six without walking a batter. It was the first meeting of the season between the Chihuahuas and Isotopes.

All five Isotopes runs came on RBI doubles, with two Albuquerque runs in the first, one in the fourth and two more in the fifth.
