Round Rock Express suffer shutout loss in 10 innings


The Albuquerque Isotopes defeated the Round Rock Express 1-0 in ten innings at Dell Diamond on Friday night.

Tony Wolters hit a two-out RBI triple to drive home Tom Murphy for the game’s only run in the tenth. Wolters was 3-for-4, accounting for half of Albuquerque’s hits.

Matt Flemer (6-6) earned the win as he pitched three shutout innings in relief.

Sam Howard didn’t get the win, but he turned in a quality start as he allowed just two hits in six innings for the Isotopes. He struck out four and walked one.

Austin House picked up his third save of the season after retiring Ronald Guzman, Jared Hoying and Tyler Smith in order.

Preston Claiborne (3-1) gave up the winning hit to Wolters and was hit with the loss. He allowed one run in 2/3 of an inning and struck out two.

Derrik Gibson was 2-for-4 with a double for Albuquerque (57-55). Cristhian Adames had the only other hit for the Isotopes.

Brett Hayes, Tyler Smith, Will Middlebrooks and Doug Bernier had the only hits for the Express (51-61). Bernier, Middlebrooks and Hayes each doubled, but it wasn’t enough.

Anthony Bass had a strong start wasted as he allowed just two hits in six innings of work while striking out eight batters for Round Rock. He walked just one.

The Express had an opportunity to score in the seventh inning when Middlebrooks led off with a double. He was thrown out at home on a single by Smith later in the inning.
