Payton (26) and Barreto (16) each blasted two-run shots in a four-run sixth that added to a 3-2 Aviators’ lead. Barreto also had a pair of singles.

Albuquerque starter Jeff Hoffman (6-7) took the loss after yielding seven hits, two walks and six runs. Elliot Soto and Sam Hilliard each had two hits for the Isotopes.
