Redman's Three Home Runs Boosts 'Topes

Prentice Redman's three home runs helped Albuquerque smack Omaha 11-5. Chattanooga let get away on a two-run Tennessee homer in the 10 and lost 6-5. Modesto scored three in the 10th inning to top Inland Empire 4-1. Christian Lara's suicide squeeze pushed across the go-ahead run as Great Lakes beat West Michigan 5-2.

Redman Leads Isotopes to 11-5 Win

Led by Prentice Redman's three home runs, Albuquerque brushed off a three-run first inning deficit and rolled up 13 his and 11 runs in topping Omaha 11-5.

The 30-year-old outfielder banged a three run homer in the first, a shot in the third and a two-run homer in the fifth, finishing with six runs batted in. Outfielder Jay Gibbons chipped in with a two-run dinger in the third.

James McDonald drew the start, allowed three runs and was removed from the game. Travis Schlichting worked into the fifth, Brent Leach (2-0) added 3.1 scoreless innings to earn the win and Juan Perez closed out the win.

Redman was selected in the 10th round of the 1999 draft by the New York Mets and has been in the Seattle Mariners system the last three seasons. He saw action in 15 games for New York in 2003 and has played 1,278 games and has had 1,278 hits and 139 home runs over 10 seasons previous to joining the Dodgers as a free agent.

Gibbons singled and homered, knocking in four runs. Between he and Prentice, they had five hits, scored five runs on four home runs and knocked in 10 of the 11 Isotopes runs. First baseman John Lindsey was 3-for-3.

McDonald, who was demoted from the big club after a solid 2009 season in Los Angeles, was tapped for three hits, two walks and three runs in his only inning and removed from the game.

The 3-4-5-6 batters in the Isotopes lineup must generate nightmares among Pacific Coast League pitchers. Xavier Paul is hitting .326, Lindsey .538, Gibbons .467 and Redman .400.
