  • Men’s league tourney winds down

    In two and a half months and counting, the Benavidez Construction Hackers hadn’t dropped a single game in the Las Vegas men’s adult softball league.

    The hard-hitting juggernaut of a squad — often limited only by the league rules that restrict how many home runs count in the offensive team’s favor — began the summer schedule back on the first week of May, clubbing the Vegas Hitmen 26-9.

  • ‘Topes spank Iowa again

    Ely the Eliminator played the action hero role again for a Monday matinee at Isotopes Park.

    Isotopes starting pitcher John Ely struck out seven Iowa Cubs in seven and one-third innings of work, holding the visitors to one run on four hits and a walk. He retired 13 of the first 14.

    Ely improved to 9-7 with a 3.34 earned run average, and closer Scott Rice picked up a save after fanning three of the five batters he faced.

  • Retro Night boosts Isotopes to...

    Rocking an old-school vibe — not to mention the mustard-yellow jerseys of their Albuquerque Duke predecessors — the Isotopes got off to an inspired start in Saturday night’s 16-3 win over visiting Iowa.

    Playing before a huge crowd of 13,798 at Isotopes Park, Albuquerque exploded for eight runs in the first inning and didn’t let the Cubs challenge after that.

  • Summer learnin’

    Summertime, and the learning is easy..

    After a tough building year like it experienced this past spring, the Robertson softball team just wants to learn how to be a contender.

    The results of a club tournament held in town Saturday make that look like a strong possibility.

    Composed primarily of RHS players, the Las Vegas Cyclones rumbled through the daylong tournament, collecting three victories against teams from Santa Fe and Moriarty as well as the co-host Las Vegas Rebels.

  • Tragedy won’t be marked on...

    LONDON  — IOC President Jacques Rogge won’t budge: There will be no minute’s silence for the Israeli victims of the 1972 Munich massacre at the opening ceremony of the London Olympics.

    Rogge rejected the latest calls Saturday for a special observance to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the murder of 11 Israeli athletes and coaches by Palestinian gunmen at the Munich Games.

    “We feel that the opening ceremony is an atmosphere that is not fit to remember such a tragic incident,” Rogge said.
