  • Mora to host 3-on-3 hoops

    Two of the Mora Valley’s greatest passions — the sport of basketball and the community’s annual fiesta celebration — will be a part of one big event later this month.

    The Mora Fiestas Basketball Jam, a 3-on-3 tournament, will be held July 22-23 in conjunction with the annual Mora Fiestas. Games will be situated at Montoya Gym and adjacent courts on the Mora High School campus.

    The tournament will serve as a benefit for the Mora Valley Youth Basketball Program, organizers say.

  • Isotopes herd 'Cats, 4-3

    Their bullpen hasn’t always been exemplary this summer, but on Thursday night, the Albuquerque Isotopes got three innings of shutout baseball to close out a 4-3 victory over visiting Sacramento.

    Austin House, Zac Rosscup and Carlos Estevez combined to limit the River Cats to three hits, no walks and no runs in the final 3 1/3 innings. Estevez picked up a save, holding up  Shane Carpenter’s 11-hit, three-run start for the pitching win. Carpenter is 5-6.

    Every Isotope score proved crucial in a nip-and-tuck clash.
