    Albuquerque Isotopes fans didn’t let the continuing struggles of their favorite baseball team spoil their appetites on Tuesday night.

    The Ninjas won all seven of their games, outscoring their opponents 46-16.

    This is the first tournament gold for the club, which is completing its first year. The team is coached by Ian Williamson.

    La Plaza’s Senior Division baseball team, hosting Mora on its home field, captured the district title with two straight wins in what amounted to a best-of-three series.

    La Plaza won 12-0 and 13-3 on Tuesday evening at Rodriguez Park.

  • Phelps makes 5th Olympics

    The Associated Press

    OMAHA, Neb. — Michael Phelps surged to the wall, and then whipped around to spot his time.

    That number wasn’t really important. The only thing that mattered was No. 5.

    Phelps became the first male swimmer to qualify for five Olympics with a victory in the 200-meter butterfly at the U.S. swimming trials Wednesday night, another huge milestone in the water but even more significant given what’s happened away from the pool.

  • Johnson gets back to work

    The Associated Press

    AKRON, Ohio — Dustin Johnson was on the range at Firestone for an hour and was lucky if he hit more than a dozen shots.
    This would not be described as an intense practice session, for all the right reasons.
