Isotopes 5 Cubs 2

It was a hot afternoon at Isotopes Park Monday and Tony Abreu bat was burning hot. I couldn't make the game because I had to work but I listened to the play-by-play by Robert Portnoy. He made me feel like I was sitting in my seat at Isotopes Park.
What did I miss seeing?
First Tony Abreu started off the game with a lead off home run. When the dust settled and the Isotopes had come out victorious and Tony was five-for-five with one home run, three RBI, and three doubles. Abreu was the man of the day.
Josh Lindblom came in and earned his first save in Triple-A.
Oh did I mention it was a two-inning save?
Lindblom threw 29 pitches 17 for strikes. He struck out one and waled one. I am telling you if you have a chance to get out to Isotopes Park, keep an eye out for Josh because you are watching something special in the making. Great job, Josh!!!
Jaimie Hoffman has a 14-game hitting streak!
Cory Wade is with the Isotopes on a rehab assignment.
Doug Mientkiewicz will be the DH in Tuesday's game.
Blake Dewitt is headed back to Triple-A to make room on the roster for Hong-Chi Kuo.  This is the fifth time DeWitt has been sent down.
There was a new face called out of the bullpen on Saturday and his name is Francisco Felix. Felix is from Culiacan, Mexico.
He was signed as a non-drafted free agent on Feb. 19, 2003. He was called up from Double-A where he was 3-2 with a 2.93 ERA. He struck out 54 in 55.1 innings in Double-A.
Welcome to Albuquerque, Francisco. 
I had a chance to talk to Felix on Sunday and he is a real nice guy.
