  • Rain drenches Robbers’ plans

    Once again, Mother Nature declined to cooperate with the Las Vegas Train Robbers, wreaking havoc on the team’s home schedule this past week.

    The Robbers were slated to host Trinidad on Tuesday and Santa Fe on Wednesday at Rodriguez Park. They got in about five of those 18 scheduled innings.

    Everything was okay for the start of Tuesday’s game, which saw the visiting Triggers take a 9-0 lead. Las Vegas made a comeback, getting to within 9-5 before a heavy rain brought the proceedings to a premature end five innings into the game.
