  • Dog days

    David Dahl hit four times in five at-bats Wednesday night, boosting his Triple-A batting average to a robust .667.

    But the Albuquerque Isotopes couldn’t convert that performance into a win, falling for the second time in as many nights to visiting El Paso. The division-leading Chihuahuas won 6-4, taking the latter two games of a three-game series at Isotopes Park.

    Dahl finished with two doubles and two runs batted in. Mike Tauchman and pitcher Kyle Freeland recorded two hits apiece for Albuquerque (34-52).

  • On the run

    Rudy Castellano will readily admit that he’s not a runner, either recreational or competitive.

    But when Castellano was serving on the Las Vegas Fiesta Council in the early 1980s, the longtime educator recognized the appeal of a good 10-kilometer race.

    “It was the craze at the time, people getting into exercise and fitness,” he recalled. “People were really starting to look at health.”

  • Wade ends 13-year run in Miami

    By Tim Reynolds
    AP Basketball Writer

    MIAMI — Dwyane Wade is going home, making what he called “an extremely emotional and tough decision” on Wednesday night to leave the Miami Heat after 13 seasons and sign with the Chicago Bulls.

    Wade will sign a two-year deal with the Bulls, one that will pay him about $47 million.

  • Isotopes end skid, win three of...

    Breaking a nasty losing streak that had reached a franchise-worst 13 games, the Albuquerque Isotopes have now won three of their last four.

    Albuquerque’s bats served up a steady stream of fireworks in the team’s Independence Day return to Isotopes Park, beating El Paso 7-2 on Monday night.

  • Hundreds in Fiesta Run

    The oldest of the competitors were in their 70s.

    The youngest were too little to walk on their own, being pushed along in strollers by hard-working parents.

    They came from as far as New York City and Georgia, although the vast majority were locals.

    A couple of hundred in all  took part in this past Sunday’s Las Vegas Fiesta Run, which traversed along State Road 65 and Hot Springs Boulevard to the Old Town Plaza.
