REMARKS: The Isotopes, who lost two of three games over the weekend at Sugar Land, continue a nine-game home streak when they start a six-game set with the Las Vegas Aviators on Tuesday night at Isotopes Park.

… No hitter on the Albuquerque roster is hotter than Wynton Bernard, who is 12 for 28 with two doubles, a triple, three home runs and eight RBIs in his last six games. He already has 10 3-hit games this season.

… Elehuris Montero extended his triple-A on-base streak to 27 games on Sunday with a fourth-inning single against Sugar Land.

… When the Isotopes hit at least five home runs Sunday night, it was the fifth time this season they’d hit at least that many in a single game.

… Only El Paso, with 144, has more minor-league home runs than Albuquerque, which has 143.

… Albuquerque’s pitching team was surely thrilled to see Sugar Land leave town; in the 15 head-to-head games between the two clubs this season, the Space Cowboys have hit 44 home runs.

UPCOMING PROMOTIONS: Wednesday (starts at 12:05 p.m.) is Youth Summer Program Day. … Friday is Beer Steins. … Saturday is the highly anticipated “Breaking Bad” memorabilia auction in the stadium with Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul appearing. It’s also a Green Chile Cheeseburgers night with post-game fireworks. …and Sunday is tin lunch box day as the homestand wraps up.
