  • Future bright for Lady Cards

    It’s probably safe to say Elicia “Chilie” Trujillo loves softball — she’s played in hundreds of games and won 26 of the last 31 as the cornerstone third baseman of the Robertson Lady Cardinals.

    But that doesn’t mean she loves softballs.

    Albuquerque outhit New Orleans 10-7 Thursday night, but the Zephyrs got the last laugh in the top of the ninth.

    Don Kelly’s line drive single scored Destin Hood for the go-ahead run in a 5-4 win for the visitors in the opener of a four-game series at Isotopes Park.

    The outcome spoiled another three-hit night for shortstop Rafael Ynoa. Brandon Barnes and Ben Paulsen both homered for Albuquerque.

  • Panthers reach 3A title game

    ALBUQUERQUE — A shaky start doomed the Pecos Panthers’ upset bid in the Class 3A state baseball championship game with top-ranked Texico Friday at Isotopes Park.

    Texico added to its trophy case after securing a 6-2 victory.

    Four early errors on defense hurt Pecos.

    The Wolverines scored three runs on three hits, one walk and a hit-by-pitch reach in the top of the first inning.

    Texico extended its lead to 5-0 with two more hits, two errors and a hit-by-pitch reach in the second inning.
