  • District 4 Tourneys

    Opening day of the 2014 District 4 Little League tournaments was good for the hometown favorites.

    Steven Encinias’ solo home run and a seven-strikeout start by Antonio Padilla boosted Las Vegas 11-12 baseball against Taos in a 22-0 romp, capping a big Saturday for local sluggers and their hundreds of fans at Rodriguez Park.

    In the only all-Meadow City meeting of day one, host La Plaza 10-11 won a back-and-forth battle with Las Vegas 11-9.
    LVLL 11-12 softball blanked Taos 20-0 and advances to play the Raton-Santa Rosa winner.

  • NM native hits walk-off winning...

    With the game on the line Friday, Brian Cavazos-Galvez swung at the first pitch he saw from Reno’s Joe Peterson.

    It was the right move.

    The ball sailed over the left-field wall at Isotopes Park, and a 2-2 stalemate in the bottom of the seventh instantly turned into a 3-2 Albuquerque victory in the first game of Friday’s doubleheader with the Aces. (Albuquerque also went on to win the nightcap 3-2.)
