  • Photo finish for Cubs

    Omar Gallardo’s dusty slide into home plate triggered a swarm of blue and red onto the field Saturday.

    Gallardo’s was the winning run in the Cubs’ 6-5 walk-off triumph over the Marlins in La Plaza’s minors division championship game.

    It was fitting that Gallardo put an end to the game. He finished 4 for 4 at the plate with three runs scored.

    Solid in the middle of their order, the Marlins got three hits apiece from the one-town punch of Jared and Jaden.

    But it was the Cubbies who came up with a trump card in the final at-bat.

  • LV wrestlers excel in AAU tourney

    Not content with a T-shirt, a postcard or a keychain, Rico Montoya had a different souvenir in mind from his summer trip to Montana.

    So Montoya picked up a couple of national championship medals and one runner-up prize to hang on his wall.

    Montoya was one of four Las Vegas wrestlers who competed in the AAU Grand Nationals for Greco-Roman, freestyle, and folkstyle wrestling June 11-12 in Butte, Mont.

    The foursome was part of a 15-wrestler contingent from New Mexico, said Marcos Martinez, one of the group’s coaches and an accomplished grappler himself.

    Adult softball teams around the state are learning what those in the Meadow City already know — the Las Vegas Hackers are pretty darn tough.

    The Hackers went 5-1 in the double-elimination event, defeating a strong Evolve Fitness group in the second of two meetings that decided the championship.
