  • Murphy’s Law wrecks Birds

    For the first time in nearly eight years, an Albuquerque Isotope has hit for the cycle.

    Catcher Tom Murphy hit a single, double, triple and home run Thursday night, going 4 for 5 with two RBI, as the Isotopes defeated Memphis 12-8.

    He became the first Isotope to hit for the cycle since Robert Andino did it on Aug. 21, 2008.

    And apparently Jordan Patterson’s participation in All-Star week didn’t take much of a toll on him.

    The show honoring the year’s best athletes and sports moments opened on a somber note, with James and fellow NBA stars Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul and Dwyane Wade standing four abreast on stage addressing the recent shootings of blacks by white police officers.
