  • Stallworth among NFL cuts

    The Associated Press
    Donte’ Stallworth’s NFL comeback from a hot air balloon accident might have ended Monday when he was released by the Washington Redskins.
    Stallworth could catch on with another team, especially with so many injuries at wide receiver throughout the league during the preseason. But, for now, the 32-year-old veteran of 10 NFL seasons is unemployed.

  • Scrimmages galore

    A number of local fall sports teams wrapped up their preseason preparations with scrimmages of one type or another this past weekend.

    Robertson’s football team clashed with the visiting Tucumcari Rattlers on Thursday afternoon at Cardinal Stadium in a string of offense vs. defense series. Coach Leroy Gonzalez’s staff is getting the Cardinals ready for the season opener this Friday night at Portales.

  • Isotopes solid vs. Sounds

    A return to The Lab was all the Isotopes needed to right the ship.

    But can they stay on course long enough to sail back into the lead of the PCL American Southern?

    Albuquerque took control in the middle innings Saturday night against Nashville, pounding out 15 hits in a 12-7 win over the Sounds.

    Nashville scored three times in the top of the first inning and also led 4-2 midway through the third.

    But the Isotopes tied it with two runs in the bottom of the third and pulled ahead for the first time courtesy of a four-run fourth.
