'Topes Shutout by Omaha
Left-hander Bruce Chen took a no-hitter into the seventh and finished with a 4-0 complete game. Hector Luna singled to right with two out in the seventh for the first Albuquerque hit.

Chen allowed just five base-runners, retiring the first 13 batters he faced and 20 of 21 before Luna's hit. Only a throwing error by shortstop Mario Lisson with two outs in the fifth spoiled his bid at a perfect game.

Omaha scored three in the fourth off 'Topes spot-starter Dwayne Pollok (2-3), who allowed the three-run homer that was all that Chen needed.

Four 'Topes relievers allowed just one run over the final five innings. Will Ohman struck out the side in the fifth, Carmen Cali and Nick DeBarr both wiggled out of bases-loaded jams in the sixth and seventh to leave a total of eight stranded over three innings.

In the seventh, Jamie Hoffman followed Luna's single with a double to right, and with runners on the corners with two outs Dee Brown fouled out.

Chin-Lung Hu double to right in the ninth and after a two-out walk to Luna, Hoffman flew out to end the game.

The Isotopes will send right-hander Miguel Pinagno (2-5, 7.43) to oppose Royals righty Matt Wright (0-3, 7.09) tonight.

The 'Topes' big Father's Day Weekend homestand rolls on with a Mini-Bat giveaway tonight and a very special Father's Day celebration Sunday, complete with BBQ apron giveaway, pre-game father/child catch, and a jersey auction benefitting prostate cancer awareness.

Gonzalez's Walkoff in Ninth Boosts 66ers
Second baseman Adolfo Gonzalez capped a stunning game-winning ninth inning comeback with a two-run walk-off homer to deep left to give Inland Empire a 6-4 win over High Desert 5,287. ?

Trailing 4-2 entering the bottom of the ninth, Mavs reliever Aaron Jensen, who hadn't allowed a run in 11 appearances since May 17, retired Preston Mattingly and Elian Herrera. With two outs and nobody on, consecutive doubles to left by Trayvon Robinson and Pedro Baez brought the Sixers to within a run, 4-3.

Pinch-hitter Steven Caseres ripped a singled to right, allowing Baez to tie the game, sliding across the plate just before the throw. Gonzalez, who hadn't hit a home run since May 21, drilled a 0-1 pitch over the left field wall for the remarkable win.

High Desert scored all four of their runs in the first off 66ers starter Alberto Bastardo.

?The Sixers scored in the first on Baez's RBI single and added another i the fifth when Baez singled and later scored when he stole third and the ball was thrown into left field.

Baez finished the night 3-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored. Gonzalez had a single to go with his game-winning home run.

Bastardo was masterful after the first inning, working the next 4.2 innings and allowing only a pair of harmless hits. Mario Alvarez (1-0) picked up the win by shutting off the Storm over the final 2.1 innings.?

The 66ers (31-37) send Josh Wall (0-2, 5.35) against Nathan Adcock (4-3, 4.10) tonight. Following the game there will be a postgame fireworks show.
