  • Season over for local sluggers

    La Plaza’s 10-11 All-Stars had the best fortunes of any local team this past weekend in state Little League baseball tournaments.

    But a nailbiter of a loss to Albuquerque’s South Valley All-Stars ended that squad’s run on Sunday in the Duke City.

    All four of the Meadow City’s remaining Little League baseball teams saw their postseasons come to a close.

    Tim Duncan and Kobe Bryant. Dwyane Wade and Kevin Durant. Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah.

    Players synonymous with their cities and their franchises are now gone in a summer of upheaval the NBA has rarely seen before, and the teams left behind begin their searches for new identities after saying the hardest of goodbyes.

  • Seven wins in a row

    Fortunes have shifted of late for the Albuquerque Isotopes, who strung together a seven-game winning streak to start this week.

    The Isotopes’ scheduled Monday night home game with Nashville was cancelled due to a rainstorm and poor field conditions and was to be made up with a doubleheader on Tuesday.

    After sweeping a series with Memphis, Albuquerque is 41-53 and looking to climb out of the cellar of the PCL’s Pacific Southern Division.

    LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Coach Mike Krzyzewski got his first glimpse at the new-look U.S. national team, as the team opened camp at UNLV with just two players back from the 2012 national team that won the gold medal in London.

    Carmelo Anthony returns for his fourth run at the Olympics, after winning a bronze medal in 2004 and gold in 2008 and 2012, while Kevin Durant is looking for a second gold medal after playing on the championship team in 2012.

  • Heading to Nationals

    Zant Zamora, 17, hasn’t always had a rope in his hand. It just seems that way.

    Zamora is in Gillette, Wyo., this week competing in the National High School Finals Rodeo. The Robertson High School senior qualified in three events — team roping (with partner Corey Charley), light rifle, and trap shooting. If he can crack the top six, he’ll earn a coveted spot in the Junior National Finals Rodeo and compete in Las Vegas, Nev., this December.

    “It’d mean a lot,” he said. “It’d be a huge accomplishment.”

  • Offseason dues
  • Murphy’s Law wrecks Birds

    For the first time in nearly eight years, an Albuquerque Isotope has hit for the cycle.

    Catcher Tom Murphy hit a single, double, triple and home run Thursday night, going 4 for 5 with two RBI, as the Isotopes defeated Memphis 12-8.

    He became the first Isotope to hit for the cycle since Robert Andino did it on Aug. 21, 2008.

    And apparently Jordan Patterson’s participation in All-Star week didn’t take much of a toll on him.
