  • Scott to coach Lakers?

    The Associated Press

    LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Lakers have waited nearly three months to hire a new coach, and they’re apparently making Byron Scott wait a few more days.

    Scott said this weekend that he has been hired by the Lakers, but the club insisted Sunday that no deal has been reached.

    Scott, who won three NBA titles as a shooting guard for the Lakers, told KCBS-TV he will take over the club, which hasn’t had a coach since Mike D’Antoni resigned April 30.

    Before Friday night, the Albuquerque Isotopes had played six straight one-run games, but that all ended with a season-high 16-run outburst by the Isotopes on Friday against the Reno Aces.

    Albuquerque (51-56) routed Reno (56-51) 16-7 for its ninth win in its last 11 tries.

    Neither team got the offense going through the first two frames, but the Isotopes quickly put the game out of reach in the third inning.

  • State quests end for LV

    Las Vegas Little League’s time in the state tournaments came to a bitter end early this week with the elimination of three baseball teams.

    All three, the 9-10, 10-11 and 11-12 groups, had achieved District 4 championships to make the cut for state.

    Playing locally at La Plaza’s Rodriguez Park, Las Vegas 10-11 lost to Roadrunner All-Stars 15-9 on Tuesday morning in an elimination game.

    Roadrunner, the District 5 champ, went on to beat Carlsbad Shorthorn. Roadrunner was to play Lions Hondo on Thursday in a semifinal.
