  • Everything Aces for Reno

    Mick Freeman roped in a line-drive single to score Nick Evans for a walk-off winner Monday night in Reno, lifting the host Aces to a 6-5 comeback win over visiting Albuquerque.

    The Isotopes had led 5-0 going into the bottom of the eighth inning but squandered control, allowing three runs in each of the final two frames.

    The setback dropped Albuquerque to 43-52, keeping the Isotopes mired in third place in the Pacific Coast League’s Pacific Southern Division.

  • Robber win slips away in ninth

    Las Vegas’ hard-luck Train Robbers pulled ahead of Santa Fe with a hard-fought 7-6 edge in the top of the ninth inning Sunday night only to watch it vanish.

    With two outs, the Fuego’s Matt Petrone tied the game. Then Alex Teal, a pinch runner for Chevas Numata, dashed home on a wild pitch for the walk-off victory at Fort Marcy Park.

    Petrone finished the night 3 for 4 with a sacrifice fly and one RBI.

  • Houdek new RHS coach

    “I love soccer, and I love what athletics can do for kids,” said new Robertson girls’ soccer coach Jeffrey Houdek.
    “It helps them develop life skills.”

    Houdek will have ample opportunity to provide leadership in that regard this fall, taking over a talented squad that got abruptly younger this offseason with the graduation of nine starting seniors.

  • State brackets unfold

    La Plaza’s Majors (11-12) baseball All-Stars bounced back from an opening round loss to extend their state tournament run this past weekend in Los Lunas.

    In bracket play hosted by Enchantment Little League, La Plaza endured a 16-1 defeat to Los Alamos County on Friday. But the team won 4-2 Saturday in the playback bracket and was to have another elimination game — against Shorthorn — on Sunday.

    All state tourneys are double-elimination in format.

  • Error tips walk-off win to...

    Roger Bernadina scored a walk-off winning run courtesy of a miscue by Las Vegas pitcher Zach Thornton to lift the Albuquerque Isotopes to a stirring 5-4 win Saturday night at The Lab.

    The teams had marched in lock step with one another throughout the game prior to the decisive play.

  • Robbers to wrap up on road

    So much for a long goodbye.

    Saturday’s Las Vegas Train Robbers matinee at New Mexico Highlands University’s Brandt Park never made it to the field.

    The game had been expected to be the final home appearance of the Train Robbers this season. But it ended up being cancelled by Friday, with the second half of a peculiar two-city doubleheader remaining intact at Santa Fe’s Fort Marcy Park.

    The reason? A source close to the team said the team and NMHU had a dispute over facility usage that led to the game’s cancellation.
