  • Isotopes snap skid

    The Albuquerque Isotopes ended a five-game winless streak —their longest of the summer — on Monday, with a 12-5 win over the visiting Tacoma Rainiers.

    They got help from the long ball — drilling four home runs to delight the Isotopes Park crowd.

    Tacoma had been responsible for the Isotopes’ last two defeats, a 5-2 tally on Saturday and an 8-5 result on Sunday.

  • Fall sports season officially...

    Monday is the first day high school football teams across New Mexico are able to conduct official fall season practices.
    For other fall sports teams, it’s next Monday the 11th.

    That means Las Vegans can expect to see plenty of activity at fields, gyms and trails around town as football, soccer, volleyball and cross country athletes from Robertson and West Las Vegas dig in. Of course, with camps, clinics and other types of offseason training, such activity hasn’t exactly been entirely absent.

    OXNARD, Calif.  — Rolando McClain says a phone call from Jerry Jones was the last bit of convincing the linebacker needed to come out of retirement.

    The former top 10 pick wasn’t so much moved by what the flamboyant Dallas owner had to say. It was more where Jones was when he said it.

    ENGLEWOOD, Colo.  — Von Miller wants to forget about last season, not just the way it began with a drug suspension and ended with a torn ACL but also how he experimented with packing on too much muscle.

    He’s dropped at least 25 pounds, saying, “a Ferrari isn’t built to carry luggage to and from the airport.”

    Las Vegas Optic

    Austen King of Las Vegas helped his Sidewinders, a traveling youth baseball team based in Rio Rancho, capture third place in the Denver Global World Series in July.

    The Sidewinders were third of an original field of 20 teams, falling to the Arizona Legends in the semifinals of the 13-and-under division.

    On their way to qualifying for the Denver Global World Series, the Sidewinders defeated the Las Cruces Skysox for the 2014 United States Specialty Sports Association state championship for New Mexico back in June.
