FRIDAY: Despite a promising start for the Isotopes, they continued to experience similar misfortune in West Texas.

After grabbing an early 3-0 advantage, the Isotopes were victimized by the long ball the rest of the night, surrendering three home runs in an 8-5 loss to El Paso at Southwest University Park.

The Isotopes have lost four games in a row and have fallen nine games below .500, tying a season-low. D.J. Peterson homered, his fourth over the last three games, and drove in three runs for Albuquerque.
