  • 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.

  • ‘Beasties’ to debut this weekend

    When members of the Robertson girls’ soccer team gathered at this time last year to begin the season, none could have imagined just how far the journey would lead them.
    The Lady Cardinals coalesced around new head coach Ian Williamson and quickly developed into one of the strongest teams in the state. The true test, that of the postseason, proved the squad to be legit. Robertson reached the Class 1A-3A state championship match, surprising Socorro in the state semifinal before falling to a tough Hope Christian club in the final.

  • ‘Topes’ last homestand under way

    Held to just seven hits Wednesday night in their return to The Lab, the Albuquerque Isotopes nevertheless proved efficient in a 5-3 win over visiting Nashville.
    The victory snapped a losing skid that had reached eight, including a crippling five-game road letdown at division-leading Oklahoma City.
    Albuquerque starting pitcher Matt Magill (5-1) was a major reason why the home team won. He struck out nine batters and scattered eight hits and one walk over six innings, although he did allow three earned runs.

  • Go Fish - August 23, 2013

    FISHING REPORT, Aug. 20  
    Cabresto Lake: We had no reports from anglers this week.
    Charette Lakes: Due to low water levels only small boats are being launched here and with some difficulty. Trout fishing was fair to good trolling Christmas tree-worm combinations. A few were also caught by anglers using power bait. We had no reports on perch.
