Albuquerque, New Mexico – After taking the first two games of the series against Albuquerque, the Oklahoma City Redhawks fell to the Isotopes 8-4 and 6-1 in Thursday's doubleheader.

In the first game of the night, Albuquerque was impressive on the mound to lead them to the victory. Randy Keisler (6-4) allowed four earned runs and seven hits over five and one-thirds innings for the winning decision before Travis Schlichting (1) saved the game with a scoreless one and two-thirds innings.

The Isotopes had a big second inning, scoring four runs on RedHawks starter Brad Hennessey. The Isotopes used four consecutive two-out RBI hits to build a 4-0 lead.

OKC responded with a big fourth inning of its own. Anderson Hernandez got it going for the Redhawks with a triple that score a pair of runs to make it 4-2. Then Tommy Manzella singled in Hernandez for a 4-3 game, but Manzella wasn't done there. The short stop later got caught in a rundown between first and second while third baseman Oswaldo Navarro stole home to tie the game at 4-4.

But the Isotopes regained the lead in the bottom of the fourth adding two more runs for the 6-4 victory.

RedHawks spot starter Xavier Cedeno, up from Double-A Corpus Christi, took the loss after giving up two runs and six hits over four innings.

In the second game, the two teams exchanged runs to start off with, but OKC couldn't match Albuquerque's runs late in the game.

The Isotopes scored first off a solo run from Jerry Sands in the first inning. OKC countered in the top of the second off a single by Anderson Hernandez that scored Koby Clemens from third to tie it at 1-1.

Albuquerque scored again in the second, and by the end of the sixth had put the game away thanks to a triple and two RBI singles to give the Isotopes a 5-1 advantage. Justin Sellers later drove in a final run with a double for a 6-1 score.

In total, the Redhawks had half as many hits as Albuquerque in the two games as OKC managed 13 to the Isotopes 25.

Oklahoma City (42-57) returns home for game one of a 12-game homestand Friday at 7:05 against the Memphis Redbirds.
