The Las Vegas 51s drew closer to clinching a divisional title and playoff berth in the Pacific Coast League by winning three of five games over the visiting Albuquerque Isotopes.
But the Topes salvaged victory in the series finale on Monday night at Cashman Field, grabbing an 8-2 win.
Albuquerque doubled Las Vegas’ hit output 12 to 6 and took control for good with a four-run second inning.
The 51s went up 2-0 in the first inning, courtesy of an RBI single by Brandon Allen and a Zach Lee wild pitch that enabled Andrew Brown to get home.
