Reed struggles again as Isotopes lose to RedHawks

Lefty Chris Reed has not looked good in his last two starts at Isotopes Park. He did not look any better on the road Sunday night.

Reed gave up five runs in 4.1 innings as the Albuquerque Isotopes lost 6-3 to the Oklahoma City RedHawks. Reed dropped to 0-3 in four starts as an Isotope and his ERA ballooned to 12.06.

The RedHawks (71-66) took control in the second inning. Matt Duffy hit a leadoff double and Domingo Santana followed with an RBI single.

L.J. Hoes then drew a one-out walk to set up Carlos Perez, who lined a two-run double to center field to make it 3-0. Reed would go on to allow runs in the fourth and fifth innings as well.

Albuquerque (59-76) scored its only runs in the fifth inning. Trayvon Robinson hit a two-run triple and Joc Pederson followed with an RBI single.

The Isotopes are one loss away from tying the 2004 club for the most in a single season. They have already guaranteed that they cannot match their lowest win total (67, also from 2004) thanks to two games canceled by rain this year.

Richard Rodriguez (2-0), Pat Urckfitz and Jason Stoffel combined for 4.1 scoreless innings of relief for Oklahoma City. Stoffel earned his 11th save.

The Isotopes and RedHawks will continue their series Monday at 6:05 p.m. Right-hander Matt Magill (7-5, 4.98 ERA) will start for Albuquerque against Oklahoma City right-hander Asher Wojciechowski (3-4, 4.09).
