    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — San Francisco's in for a treat. The Giants are heading to the World Series.

    Juan Uribe hit a tiebreaking homer off Ryan Madson with two outs in the eighth inning and the Giants held off the Philadelphia Phillies 3-2 Saturday night in Game 6 of the NL championship series.

    Surprise star Cody Ross and the pitching-rich Giants reached the World Series for the first time since 2002 and will host the Texas Rangers in Game 1 on Wednesday night. The Giants have never won the championship since moving to San Francisco in 1958.

  • All in: Rangers finally reach...

    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Texas Rangers did a victory lap, sharing the moment with their frenzied fans. They sprayed each other with ginger ale on the field to involve the AL championship series MVP in the celebration, and doused their manager with the contents of a water cooler.

    Fireworks and confetti filled the Texas sky. A flag proclaiming the Rangers as the AL champions was raised high above the ballpark, whipping in the wind alongside more than three dozen Lone Star state flags.

  • Volleyball: Toppers sweep, earn...

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team clinched its third straight District 2AAAA title and a postseason berth by sweeping the Santa Fe Demons Wednesday night.
    Los Alamos started out slow in the first set of Wednesday’s match, played at Griffith Gymnasium, but bounced back to win 25-21. It took the next two sets by counts of 25-15.
    With the regular season district title and a No. 1 seed in the upcoming 2AAAA tournament secure, the Hilltoppers can now turn at least one eye toward the upcoming Class AAAA playoffs, which are scheduled to get going Nov. 11.

  • Baseball: Yankees stay alive...

    NEW YORK (AP) — Texas has two more chances to reach the World Series for the first time.

    First, Colby Lewis gets a chance to win the pennant. If he can't finish the job, Cliff Lee would face the New York Yankees in Game 7.

    "There's no frustration or feeling like we didn't accomplish what we wanted to do," Rangers third baseman Michael Young said after Wednesday's 7-2 loss in Game 5. "We'll just go home and try to finish it off."

  • Baseball: Uribe's sac fly...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The San Francisco Giants keep showing that building a loaded, All-Star lineup isn't the only way to make a deep October run.

    The second-chance players and homegrown talent can pay big dividends this time of year, too.

    A club of castoffs and postseason newcomers is now just one win away from the World Series.

  • Girls soccer: LA earns big win...

    SANTA FE — It was a bit of a balancing act that the Los Alamos Hilltopper girls soccer team had to perform Tuesday, but it didn’t appear to be much of problem.
    About the only concern the Hilltoppers had in the District 2AAAA finale was to make sure they didn’t tire themselves out with two big games scheduled for later this week.
    The Hilltoppers took on the Capital Jaguars to close out the district season Tuesday at Jaguar Field and, as expected, routed them 10-0, finishing the game off about eight minutes early.

  • Boys soccer: Toppers nab...

    SANTA FE — Winning a district title was the big goal. Making a statement to go along with it doesn’t hurt, either.
    At Jaguar Field Tuesday, the Los Alamos Hilltopper boys soccer team accomplished both.
    The Hilltoppers finally shook off the upset-minded Capital Jaguars in the second half of Tuesday’s game, scoring three quick-strike goals to win 3-0 and earn its third-straight District 2AAAA title.
