Redbirds Roll in Shutout of Isotopes

With many of their top players getting called up to the Major League level to play with St. Louis, the Memphis Redbirds are trying to tread water with what they've got left, along with callups from.. Double-A-

It goes to the strength of the Cardinals organization that the Redbirds are still floating around the .500 mark...just 6-games out of First Place in the Northern Division of the Pacific Coast Leagues' American Conference.

Take you downtown to AutoZone Park where the 'Birds look for a 2-1 series lead against the Albuquerque Isotopes.

Adam Ottavino on the hill for Memphis, looking for his first triple-A victory...he fans 7 in this one, including 4 of the first 6 batters.

He gets the offensive help he needs too...leadoff hitter Jon Jay with the solo blast to get the birds on the board in the first inning...

Isotopes going with knuckle-baller, Charlie Haeger...he was giving away bases and runs...Shane Robinson scores on the past ball in the 6th...

Allen Craig puts it away with the sac fly in the 7th...

Ottavino gets the win, going 8 and a third, allowing just 4 hits.

Redbirds win, 3-nothing...

Same two teams Saturday night.  First Pitch 6:05pm at the Zone.
