  • Baseball: Lincecum fans 14 as...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The sellout crowd that had been waiting seven years for another playoff game roared when Tim Lincecum jogged back out to the mound to start the ninth inning. The way the Freak dominated in his postseason debut, there was no way manager Bruce Bochy would take the ball away.

    Lincecum pitched a two-hitter and struck out 14 in a dazzling performance, and the San Francisco Giants scored their only run after a questionable umpiring call to beat the Atlanta Braves 1-0 in Game 1 of their NL division series Thursday night.

  • Baseball: Rangers one win away...

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Following Cliff Lee in the postseason is a tough act, yet C.J. Wilson made it look easy.

    Now, the Texas Rangers are up 2-0 in their AL division series against the Tampa Bay Rays, with a chance to make franchise history when the best-of-five matchup shifts to Ranger Ballpark this weekend.

  • Baseball: Pettitte leads Yanks...

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Andy Pettitte missed two months with a groin injury this summer and was still trying to find his strength and his form in late September.

    Lance Berkman hit only one homer for the New York Yankees after coming over in a deadline-day trade during the worst season of his powerful career.

    This is October, though, when the Yankees usually bring out their best.

  • Volleyball: ´Toppers pick up big...

    Lots of streaks stayed intact Wednesday night for the Los Alamos Hilltopper volleyball team.
    Los Alamos, one of the hottest teams in the state right now, picked up not only its ninth straight win at Griffith Gymnasium Wednesday, it also kept its District 2AAAA record a spotless 3-0 with just the struggling Capital Jaguars to contend with to make it a clean sweep of the first half of district play.

  • Baseball: Lee outduels Price as...

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Cliff Lee savored another playoff victory, saying winning is the only way to really evaluate how he performs.

    "That's the bottom line, regardless how that happens," the Texas Rangers ace said after beating the Tampa Bay Rays 5-1 Wednesday in the opening game of the AL playoffs. "If we get a win, it was a good performance."

  • Baseball: Teixeira's homer...

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The New York Yankees became Major League Baseball's flagship franchise almost as much for the glamorous image they project as for the 27 titles in their trophy case.

    From Babe Ruth to Derek Jeter, Joltin' Joe to A-Rod, the Yankees have almost always been the bluebloods of baseball.

  • Baseball: Halladay's no-...

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Roy Halladay finished his warmup tosses and stood on the mound, waiting for a commercial to finish so he could resume working on his masterpiece.

    Nothing could deter Halladay in his postseason debut. Not the long television breaks. Not the rain in the early innings. Not the best-hitting team in the NL.

  • Football: Hilltoppers open up...

    It’s a new football season. For all intents and purposes, anyway.
    Despite a rough nondistrict season for the Los Alamos Hilltoppers, in which it lost five straight contests, things can be righted in a hurry. Los Alamos will have an opportunity to put a lot of struggles behind it quickly Friday night at Bernalillo.
    The Hilltoppers open the District 2AAAA season Friday at Bernalillo when they take on the Spartans.

  • Golf: Hilltopper round-up at...

    Hilltopper girls finish second at Grants

    The Los Alamos Hilltopper girls golf team finished second at the two-day Grants Invitational, which wrapped up Tuesday.

    Los Alamos improved 15 strokes on its day one finish, firing a team score of 351 to pick up the runner-up finish. Kirtland Central, a strong contender for the Class AAAA championship this season, won the tournament.

    In all, six teams took part in the invitational, which was held at Coyote del Mal Pais Golf Club.

  • Soccer: Liverpool board agrees...

    LONDON (AP) — Liverpool's board agreed to sell the debt-riddled Premier League club to the owners of the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday, but may have to take legal action to force out the existing American owners.

    Current co-owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett Jr. have already said they will resist the bid from New England Sports Ventures, which owns the Red Sox, and a separate bid from Asia.
