  • State champs! Las Vegas 10-11...

    Marissa Sanchez saw the pitch coming and as soon as the ball entered the strike zone her bat made a familiar sound — a sweet pop — as it made contact.

    The ball sailed neatly into the gap in center field, too far for the infielders to reach and too close for the outfielders to get it. Sanchez tossed her bat behind her and darted to first base just as teammate Azlyn Padilla, who’d been perched impatiently at third, sprinted home.

  • Patterson earns All-Star nod

    As the team reaches All-Star Break, the Albuquerque Isotopes closed the season’s first half with an 8-5 win over Las Vegas on Saturday in Nevada.

    Tom Murphy drove in five runs and homered twice to lead the visitors.

    That caps a much-needed three-game win streak for Albuquerque (37-53). The Isotopes have won six of 10 in the month of July after enduring a difficult June.

    The American siblings won their sixth doubles championship at the All England Club and 14th as a pair at all Grand Slam tournaments by beating fifth-seeded Timea Babos of Hungary and Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan 6-3, 6-4.

  • Dog days

    David Dahl hit four times in five at-bats Wednesday night, boosting his Triple-A batting average to a robust .667.

    But the Albuquerque Isotopes couldn’t convert that performance into a win, falling for the second time in as many nights to visiting El Paso. The division-leading Chihuahuas won 6-4, taking the latter two games of a three-game series at Isotopes Park.

    Dahl finished with two doubles and two runs batted in. Mike Tauchman and pitcher Kyle Freeland recorded two hits apiece for Albuquerque (34-52).
