The Isotopes jumped out to an early 4-0 lead behind the power of the long ball. Greg Bird and Taylor Snyder had back-to-back home runs in the first inning. In fact, five Isotopes would drive the ball out of the yard, including Taylor Motter who got his league-leading 21st home run in the 9th inning.

It was a two-run shot. The Isotopes are back home Thursday for the start of a six-game series against Salt Lake. That will be followed by a day off and then another six-game series. Oklahoma is in town on Aug. 5.
