This is his third stint with the Isotopes.

“I was like, ‘I’m coming back home.’ I’ve been here the last couple of years and every time I come play here, it’s always so joyful. The atmosphere here, the energy the fans bring, it’s good to be back,” Bernard said.

The Isotopes, unfortunately, didn’t fare well on the Fourth of July. Despite an in-the-park home run, the ‘Topes still fell 7-4.
