  • Topes Notes 07-20-11

    For the second night in a row, the Albuquerque Isotopes couldn't hang on to an early lead against the Oklahoma City RedHawks and lost more ground against the Round Rock Express in the division race.

    The RedHawks scored eight runs in the final four innings Tuesday in Albuquerque to win 9-5. The Isotopes socred three times in the bottom of the first and twice more in the bottom of the fourth to go up 5-0 before the RedHawks rallied late.

  • White Rock topped by Eastdale in...

    TAOS — It was a big early deficit against a very good ballclub and the White Rock All-Stars wouldn’t be able to overcome it.
    Despite going into Tuesday’s semifinal round contest of the state tournament with some good momentum after two come-from-behind wins, the gap was too much to close. Albuquerque’s Eastdale All-Stars got their bats going early, pounding out nine hits in the first two innings and taking advantage of five errors to upend White Rock 14-2 in 3-1/2 innings at Kit Carson Park.
    Eastdale, one of the favorites in the Majors state softball tournament, had nine hits in the first two innings, including four for extra bases, while White Rock could only come up with single tallies in the tops of the second and fourth.

  • World Cup win gives Japan reason...

    FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — Their country’s misery was never far from their hearts.
    Thousands dead or missing. Villages erased. Homes destroyed.
    The players on Japan’s women’s World Cup team invoked the slow recovery from a devastating tsunami and earthquake time and again. Whatever they could do, they vowed, they would.
    True to their word, the gleaming World Cup trophy will ride back on the plane with them — a prize, they hope, that will lift the gloom, even if only for a short while.

  • White Rock pulls off comeback...

    The White Rock All-Stars pulled off two thrilling wins in the first two rounds of the Majors softball state tournament to advance to this morning’s semifinal round.
