Joc Pederson and Brock Peterson homered in the first inning to jump-start the Albuquerque Isotopes to a 7-4 victory over the River Cats on Tuesday night at Raley Field.

Right-hander Matt Buschmann allowed two runs and five hits in eight innings, but the River Cats let a ninth-inning lead slip away as the Tacoma Rainiers scored twice to walk off with a 4-3 victory Monday in the rubber match of a five-game series. Buschmann walked none and struck out eight.
