    Express takes 3-2 win
    The Albuquerque Isotopes managed just two runs Thursday off Round Rock pitchers Zach Jackson and Yoshinori Tateyama, falling 3-2 on the road.
    Jackson (4-12) scattered six hits over 7-2/3 innings to pick up the victory for Round Rock. Albuquerque couldn’t provide much support for starting pitcher Will Savage (10-4), who pitched seven strong innings.
    Thursday’s loss, combined with an extra-innings win by Oklahoma City over Iowa, ties the two teams for the top spot in the PCL American Southern division.

  • WAC head coaches vote Aggies...

    LAS VEGAS, Nev. – The New Mexico State University Aggie football team has been selected to finish fourth in the 2012 Western Athletic Conference football coaches poll and fifth in the media polls, released Thursday at the WAC Football Media Days.

    The Aggies received 22 points in the coaches' poll and 95 points in the media poll.

    In 2011, the Aggies were picked to finish eighth by the coaches and in the media poll, NMSU finished the 2011 campaign with a 4-9 overall record and 2-5 conference record. This is the highest preseason ranking in both polls for the Aggies since they joined the WAC in 2005.

  • Lobo football picked to finish...

    LAS VEGAS, Nev. — Lobo coach Bob Davie addressed a portion of the Mountain West media Tuesday, saying "the past doesn't have to dictate the future."

    However, the past that saw the University of New Mexico win three games in three seasons surely was a consideration for the media at the Mountain West Football Media Day, which picked the Lobos to finish last in the 10-team MW race of 2012.

    "I think it's a factor that we haven't performed well in the past," said Lobo quarterback B.R. Holbrook.

    Both Martinson, who has won three consecutive City championships and Norman, who has won two straight, are both favored again this year, but they will face plenty of competition in their quest to continue their streaks.
