  • Aces deck Isotopes

    Albuquerque squandered a 3-0 head start Monday afternoon, losing to Reno when Mike Freeman’s run off a Jack Reinheimer double in the top of the seventh broke a tie and held up as the game winner.

    It was the fourth defeat in as many games against the Aces, who dealt the Isotopes a rare home sweep.
    The Isotopes are playing at Fresno through Friday, then returning to The Lab on Saturday.

  • Grizzlies fall to top-ranked foe

    Las Vegas Optic

    Driving toward a league championship in their second season, the Las Vegas Grizzlies ran out of answers this past Sunday.
    The Duke City Marshals, the No. 1 seed in the semipro New Mexico Independent Football League, controlled their home playoff game in a 32-14 victory at Van Buren Middle School.

    That brought an end to Las Vegas’ sophomore campaign after the squad had achieved an 8-4 overall record.

    CLEVELAND — From the edge of elimination to the brink of history.

    LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers have pushed the NBA Finals to their limit. Game 7 is necessary.

    James scored 41 points, delivering another magnificent performance with the season on the line, Kyrie Irving added 23 and the Cavs sent the finals packing for California by beating the rattled Golden State Warriors 115-101 on Thursday night to even this unpredictable series and force a decisive final game.

  • U.S. reaches Copa semis

    The Associated Press

    SEATTLE — Clint Dempsey scored for the third straight game and set up Gyasi Zardes for a tap-in goal, boosting the United States into the Copa America semifinals with a 2-1 win over Ecuador on Thursday night.

    Playing before a boisterous and almost completely partisan home crowd in the soccer-mad Pacific Northwest, the U.S. won a knockout game against a nation outside its region for only the second time and will play Argentina or Venezuela on Tuesday in Houston.

  • No let-up for champs

    The New Mexico Highlands University community welcomed their Vatos rugby club — fresh off a second consecutive national championship in sevens rugby — with balloons and cake and atta-boy speeches from NMHU President Sam Minner and Las Vegas City Manager Richard Trujillo.

    Although the Vatos themselves were glad to take a victory lap, they also indicated they weren’t altogether satisfied with two gleaming trophies.

    Jordan Patterson and Dustin Garneau homered and combined for three RBI as Albuquerque held on to edge host El Paso 6-5 on Thursday night.

    After falling behind in the first inning, the Isotopes tied it in the second and surged ahead with two runs in the fourth and three in the fifth. Garneau hit 3 for 4.

    Albuquerque left 10 stranded but managed to withstand the Chihuahuas’ late rally. The Topes host Reno through Monday.
