The Isotopes scored on a wild pitch in the fourth inning, but El Paso answered back when C.J. Hinojosa’s two-out single brought home Brett Sullivan. Neither team scored until the bottom of the ninth when Hinojosa hit a one-out double. Martin came up and played the hero, slapping a single into right field, walking the game off.

Victor Duarte’s RBI groundout put the Storm back ahead, but Vaun Brown homered for the Giants, tying the game back up.

The speedy Max Ferguson blasted a home run, breaking the tie for good in the fifth. Alan Mundo and Ben Miller each threw two shutout frames, securing the win for Lake Elsinore. The win helped to maintain the Storm’s one-game lead atop the California South A League Division.
