Kevin Padio followed up in the top of the 4th inning with a solo blast to give the visiting Bees a 3-0 advantage. The Isotopes would go down 5-1 before starting to work their way back. A Brenton Doyle two run homer in the 7th made it a 5-3 ball game. A Michael Toglia two run triple tied the game at 5.

Nolan Jones went into tonight’s contest with three home runs in three games. Jones delivered a 2 run double in the bottom of the 8th inning to unlock a 5 all tie and give the Isotopes the go ahead runs for the win.
