Joc Pederson stole his 29th base of the season on Friday to close in on history. Pederson is trying to become the first player since Frank Demaree in 1934 to have 30 home runs and 30 stolen bases in a Pacific Coast League season.

Pederson also blasted a three-run homer as the Albuquerque Isotopes routed the host Colorado Springs Sky Sox 13-7. Trayvon Robinson, Tim Federowicz and Clint Robinson had three hits apiece.

Trayvon Robinson added four runs scored and a stolen base. All three of Federowicz's hits were doubles and he chipped in two runs and two RBI.

Clint Robinson had three RBI, a run and a double. Pederson finished 2-for-4 with three runs and four RBI.

Jeff Bennett (8-6) picked up the victory for Albuquerque (59-74), allowing six runs, four earned, in 5.2 innings. He struck out five while allowing nine hits and two walks.

Drew Carpenter earned his first save as he went 3.1 innings of relief, allowing only one run. Chad Bettis (3-3) took the loss, allowing seven runs in 3.1 innings for Colorado Springs (52-82).

A six-run fourth inning for the Isotopes proved to be the difference. Federowicz and Clint Robinson had two-run doubles, followed by Alex Guerrero's two-run homer.

Albuquerque and Colorado Springs will finish their series Saturday at 6:05 p.m. Isotopes right-hander Barry Enright (0-3, 7.81 ERA) will go up against Sky Sox lefty Yohan Flande (2-10, 5.00).


A report out of Oklahoma City said that the Dodgers are switching affiliations to the RedHawks for next season. Neither the Dodgers nor the Isotopes had a definitive comment on the story, and it will be treated purely as a rumor until such time as an official statement is made. The Isotopes' affiliation agreement with the Dodgers does expire after this season. They have been together since 2009 and before that were affiliated as the Dodgers and Dukes from 1972 to 2000.
