  • 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.

    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.

  • Football: Roethlisberger looks...

    PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ten seconds were all Ben Roethlisberger needed to prove to the Pittsburgh Steelers he wasn't affected by his month away from the NFL.

    On the first pass he threw Tuesday in his first post-suspension practice, Roethlisberger found fast wide receiver Mike Wallace far downfield for an over-the-shoulder catch of a perfectly thrown football.

    Right about then, his teammates probably were thinking the same thing: Ben is back.
