  • Topes Notes: Isotopes pummeled...

    After putting together two big offensive nights in a row, the Albuquerque Isotopes found themselves on the other end of a big offensive show Thursday night.
    The Isotopes made their return to Albuquerque Thursday following a long, 12-game road trip. They played the Nashville Sounds and the Sounds made some noise at the plate, earning a big 14-1 win.
    The Isotopes will host three more games with the Sounds on this quick, four-game homestand, including tonight’s game at Isotopes Park. Fan-favorite entertainer Myron Noodleman will be at the park for tonight’s contest, which is set for 7:05 p.m. unless air quality conditions in Albuquerque force a postponement.

  • Basketball: Mavs win, move to...

    DALLAS (AP) — Dirk Nowitzki waited five long years for that elusive third victory over Miami, yet there was only a short celebration when it finally came.
    He briefly thrust both arms in the air, a sea of blue screaming around him, but then quickly walked off the floor.
    To Nowitzki, the real party can’t come until next week.
    “There’s really nothing to celebrate,” he said. “We’re going in there Sunday swinging, like we did today, from the jump, and hopefully steal one Sunday.”
    Nowitzki scored 29 points, driving for the go-ahead dunk with 2:45 remaining, and the Mavericks beat the Heat 112-103 on Thursday night to take a 3-2 series lead.

  • Running: Rees finishes with the...

    On a tough-to-predict course Tuesday night, Dan Rees was the top predictor.
    The Atomic City Roadrunners hosted their weekly Pace Race Tuesday. This race was at the New Pipeline Gutbuster in Quemazon and featured a steep climb for both 1- and 3.2-mile racers.
    The 3.2-mile race featured a challenging 750 feet of elevation change.
    Rees finished with an error of just five seconds, nipping David Kratzer by two seconds and Daniel Romero by nine seconds.
    The top finisher on the long course was Alexander Romero, who completed the course in 25:07. Katie Gattiker was the fastest finishing female with her time of 43:49.
    On the 1-mile course, Ben Rees was the top finisher with a 7:58 and Marin Kelly finished in 11:39.

  • Fishing report 06-09-11

    Northwest

    Animas River: The flow is 4,920 cfs. Fishing is slow and the river is muddy and flowing fast with runoff. The river was stocked with 175 triploid rainbow trout last week.
    Chama River: Upper section flow is 1,120 cfs. The river below El Vado flows at 1,150 cfs. The upper Chama including the stretch flowing into El Vado is blown out. Flows are near normal and the river is in runoff. Wading is dangerous at these higher flows, so use common sense when fishing. Crane fly larva and egg patterns and a trailing flashy baetis were reported to be the hot flies. Also worms and Panther Martins are taking fish. The stretch below Abiquiu is fishing tough. High dam release has made wading tough. Flows below dam are at 1,200.

  • Hockey: Bruins rout Canucks,...

    BOSTON (AP) — The tattered, kitschy Bruins jacket has been moving around the Boston locker room for the past few months, going to the most valuable player in every victory.
    It belonged to Nathan Horton when he went down with a serious concussion two days earlier in the Stanley Cup finals. He showed up in the Bruins’ locker room Wednesday night, delighting his teammates by putting the jacket on Rich Peverley.
    That strange, old jacket bought on eBay has become the Bruins’ most valuable trophy.
    After two dominant games in Boston, the Bruins are halfway to winning a bigger, shinier prize.
