The Isotopes took advantage of a miraculous error in the bottom of the 9th inning to walk-off the Oklahoma City Dodgers (AAA Dodgers) 9-8 at "The Lab" on Wednesday evening to snap a three-game losing streak.

O'Koyea Dickson got his big night off to a start with a solo homer in the 2nd inning to give Oklahoma City a 1-0 lead.

The Isotopes tied the game in the bottom of the 3rd inning when Isotopes starter Barry Enright doubled and later scored on Mike Tauchman's double.

The Dodgers regained the lead in the 4th inning on Trayce Thompson's RBI triple and RBI singles from Max Muncy and Willie Calhoun.

In the home half of the fourth inning, Dustin Garneau doubled and scored later in the inning on an error.

Dickson had his second homer of the game, a two-run shot, and Kyle Farmer added a two-run homer as the Redhawks extended their lead to 8-2 in the top of the 5th inning.

Derrik Gibson tripled and scored on Tauchman's sacrifice flyout in the 5th inning.

The Isotopes made a game of it in the 8th inning when Garneau singled, went to second base on a wild pitch and scored on Daniel Castro's single. Rosell Herrera doubled and pinch-hitter Collin Ferguson delivered a two-run double. Ferguson tagged up to third base on Gibson's deep flyout and scored on Tauchman's single up the middle as the Isotopes closed to a run down at 8-7.

In Albuquerque's walk-off win inning, after two strikeouts to begin the inning, Garneau drew a walk, Rafael Ynoa was hit by a pitch, and Castro hit a soft infield grounder towards first. Dodgers reliever Brandon Morrow fielded the ball and what should have been an easy throw to the First Baseman for the final out became a throw past first base with Garneau and Ynoa scoring on the throwing error.

'TOPES NOTES:
The victory was Albuquerque's second walk-off win this season. . . . Raimel Tapia's 1st inning single extended his hitting streak to 17 games. . . . The Dodgers have homered in 11 straight games. . . . The Salt Lake Bees (AAA Angels) lost tonight and have a four game losing streak, so Albuquerque with the victory was able to snap a five-day streak of being 1.5 games back of the Bees and closed to a half-game back in the division. . . . The series continues Thursday evening. The Isotopes have yet to name a probable while the Dodgers are expected to send former-Isotope RHP Jair Jurrjens (4-1, 3.25) to the mound.

'TOPES NOTES:
There were a bunch of Isotopes transactions Monday. The Rockies optioned OF Raimel Tapia to Albuquerque and recalled P Jeff Hoffman to start the Rockies game in Philadelphia on Monday night. P Jairo Diaz was placed on the Temporary Inactive List and the Rockies signed OF Stephen Cardullo to a minor league contract and assigned him to Albuquerque. It will be a while before Cardullo sees an at-bat for the Isotopes as he is still recovering from a wrist injury. . . . Daniel Castro went hitless in a pinch-hit at-bat to snap a 9-game hitting streak. . . . The 9-run loss was Albuquerque's largest defeat of the season. . . . The Sky Sox and Isotopes split their only series of the season 2-2 and 35,537 attended at "The Lab" for a per-game average of 8,884. All-time, Colorado Springs holds a 42-40 series advantage while the Isotopes are 21-23 in games played against the Sky Sox in Albuquerque. . . . Christian Villanueva of the El Paso Chihuahuas (AAA Padres) is the PCL Hitter of the Week. Villanueva hit .480 (12x25) with 3 homers and 7 RBI during the award week. . . . Oklahoma City Dodgers (AAA Dodgers) pitcher Wilmer Font is the PCL Pitcher of the Week. Font made two starts and went 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA. In 12 innings of work, Font allowed 4 runs and 7 hits while walking three and fanning 25 batters. . . . Albuquerque closes out the homestand -- and the first stretch of games against American Conference foes -- with a four-game series against the club that took over the Dodgers affiliation when the Isotopes lost it, the Oklahoma City Dodgers. Probables in the opener are LHP Ryan Carpenter (2-3, 4.65) for Albuquerque and RHP Justin Masterson (3-1, 2.06) for Oklahoma City.

In Isotopes transactions Sunday, P Matt Flemer was placed on the Temporary Inactive List and P Nelson Gonzalez was added to the Isotopes roster after being assigned from Class-A Boise. . . . Daniel Castro extended his hitting streak to 9 games. . . . Jeff Hoffman was scratched from today's start and is listed as a probable for the Rockies game Monday in Philadelphia.

Isotopes fans received a special surprise on the night of Isotope Park's 1,000th official home opening. Trevor Story was sent to the Isotopes on a MLB rehabilitation assignment and had a great game, going 2x3 with a homer and two RBIs and Isotopes starter Barry Enright and two relievers combined on a 5-0 shutout of the Colorado Springs Sky Sox (AAA Brewers) in a series opener at "The Lab" on Friday evening.

It only took two batters for Albuquerque to get on the scoreboard in the 1st inning. Rafael Ynoa led off with a single, stole second base and scored on Story's single. Noel Cuevas singled with Story scoring while Cuevas was in a rundown trying to stretch the single into a double.

Anthony Bemboom walked, went to second base on Rosell Herrera's sacrifice bunt and scored on Isotope starter Barry Enright's single in the 4th inning and Story launched a solo homer in the 5th inning to build the Isotopes lead to 4-0.

Bemboom closed out the scoring with a solo homer in the 8th inning.

Story made the first of what may be three rehabilitation assignment games. Story singled home a run and later scored in the 1st inning, walked in the 3rd inning, homered in the 5th inning and popped out to second base in the 6th inning.


'TOPES NOTES:
Other than the Rockies sending IF Trevor Story to Albuquerque on a MLB rehabilitation assignment, the Rockies optioned P Carlos Estevez to Albuquerque. Estevez had been the 26th roster man for Colorado's doubleheader against the Twins Thursday. In the final Friday transaction, C Jan Vazquez was sent to Class-AA Hartford. . . . Thomas Harding of MLB.COM tweeted some detail related to the Rockies releasing OF Stephen Cardullo on Thursday. Harding tweets that the Rockies and Cardullo agreed to the release so the Rockies could open up a slot on the Rockies' 40-man roster and that Cardullo and the Rockies are working on a new minor league deal. Cardullo is expected to miss around two more months recovering from a wrist injury. . . . Barry Enright tossed 5 2/3 perfect innings tonight until Colorado Springs' Gabriel Noriega broke up the perfect game wtih a single. . . . Barry Enright, CC Lee and Austin House combined on the three hit shutout, Albuquerque's third shutout of the season. . . . Even though the Isotopes have had 1,000 official home openings in Isotopes Park history, there have been 1,022 home games played as doubleheaders typically are played as single admission with two games played, meaning there is only one official home opening that goes into the record books instead of two. Albuquerque is 560-462 in regular season games played at Isotopes Park and have drawn 8,129,435 fans in those 1,000 openings. . . . Game two of the series is Saturday evening with the Isotopes expected to send RHP Matt Flemer (1-3, 7.40) to the mound to face Colorado Springs' RHP Hiram Burgos (2-3, 6.14).

'TOPES NOTES:
The Rockies recalled P Carlos Estevez as their 26th roster man for today's doubleheader against the Twins in Minneapolis. In what might be seen as a shocking move, the Rockies announced they released OF Stephen Cardullo. It has not been reported yet if Cardullo had the right to and requested his release so he could go play international ball or if this move was the Rockies' decision. . . . Both teams did not homer in the final two games of the series and there were three homers in the first two games of the series, all hit by Isotope players. . . . The Isotopes and Redbirds split the series 2-2 and 24,188 attended at Autozone Park for a per-game average of 6,047. Albuquerque and Memphis are done playing each other this regular season and Albuquerque holds a 109-84 all-time advantage, including a 50-47 record in games played in Memphis. . . . The Isotopes went 4-4 on their just-completed 8 game roadtrip. . . . Albuquerque is half way through their first stretch of the PCL's equivalent of "interleague play" and return home for eight games against American Conference foes. The first four are against the club from up north on I-25, the Colorado Springs Sky Sox (AAA Brewers). In the game that marks an Isotopes Park milestone, RHP Barry Enright (1-0, 0.00) is expected to start for Albuquerque against Colorado Springs LHP Josh Hader (3-2, 4.20).
