On the mound Matt Magill won his first game of the season with 6 strong innings, striking out 8 and allowing just 1 earned run. Jose Dominguez was solid in his inning of work, and while Sam Demel got hit around for 3 runs, it didn't matter given Albuquerque's big league.

AA – The Lookout offense was the opposite of the Isotopes on Wednesday as they were shutout by the Suns (Marlins) 4 to 0. Ozzie Martinez singled in the first inning, and that was the only base knock Chattanooga would collect in the game as they were held hitless over the final 8 frames.
