    LAS VEGAS  — Timothy Bradley promised to shock, though the biggest shock in his fight with Manny Pacquiao came from the judges’ scorecards.

    In a fight Pacquiao seemed to have in hand, two judges decided otherwise, giving Bradley a split decision Saturday night and ending the Filipino fighter’s remarkable seven-year unbeaten run.

  • WLV softball players shine in...

    Montanna Martinez’s two-out grand slam in the bottom of the seventh inning played like a Hollywood script during the North-South All-Star softball games over the weekend.

    It also helped secure the West Las Vegas graduate the coveted Most Valuable Player honors for the event, which was held in Bayard.

  • Isotopes strand Memphis runners...

    By some measures, Isotopes pitcher Will Savage didn’t have a fantastic game Saturday.

    Savage allowed eight hits — one a home run — and gave up four walks, striking out just a couple Memphis batters.

    But that six-inning performance by Savage plus one inning apiece of shutout ball by relievers Derrick Loop, Scott Rice and Josh Wall was critical in Albuquerque’s 2-1 defense-heavy victory at Isotopes Park.

    NEWARK, N.J. — Forget the Stanley Cup coronation for the Los Angeles Kings.

    The New Jersey Devils suddenly have made things a lot more uncertain.

    How uncertain?

    While the Kings are still a victory away from the first Cup in the club’s 45-year history, the Devils are only two wins short of pulling off a feat in the finals that no team has managed for 70 years, rebounding from an 0-3 deficit.

    OKLAHOMA CITY  — After years of nagging Oklahoma City Thunder coach Scott Brooks not to take him out of games, Kevin Durant finally got his wish.

    And now, he’s one big step closer to making his basketball dreams come true.

    Durant had 34 points and 14 rebounds while playing all of regulation for the first time all season, and the Thunder claimed a spot in the NBA finals by beating the San Antonio Spurs 107-99 on Wednesday night.
