  • Cuevas, McMahon take moment in...

    Noel Cuevas didn’t get into the 2017 Triple-A All-Star Game until the sixth inning on Wednesday night in Tacoma, Wash.
    But Cuevas made an impact rather quickly, making the most of limited time on the diamond in the nationally televised contest.

    He connected on a chopper of a single up the middle, driving the baseball all the way to center field in his only at-bat.

  • LV 8-10 softball makes final four

    Las Vegas Little League’s 8-10 softball team is headed to a second weekend of state tournament competition — the coveted championship round.

  • Rally falls just short; 51s win

    Albuquerque’s ferocious rally at the end of Sunday night’s finale with the Las Vegas 51s produced six unanswered runs.

    Trouble is, the Isotopes needed eight.

    As a result, visiting Las Vegas escaped with a 13-11 victory to bring a curtain down on the first part of the Pacific Coast League schedule. Triple-A teams are on All-Star break through Wednesday, when the PCL takes on the International League in its version of the Midsummer Classic.
