  • 7-3-14 Rangers Washington.jpg Mikolas makes debut in Rangers' 6-4 loss

    Texas Rangers right-hander Miles Mikolas didn't show any nerves in his major league debut against the Baltimore Orioles. Instead, Mikolas simply focused on keeping the Orioles' powerful lineup off-balance by attacking the strike zone. However, the Rangers' bullpen faltered as Adam Jones and Ryan Flaherty hit solo homers and Baltimore beat Texas for the third consecutive game, 6-4 on Wednesday night.

  • 7-2 US World Cup.jpg World Cup: USA battles to the end in 2-1 extra time loss to Belgium

    They captured the eyes and hearts of a suddenly awakened soccer nation, who gathered in unprecedented numbers to watch the world's game.

    Kevin De Bruyne finally beat goalkeeper Tim Howard in the third minute of extra time, Romelu Lukaku scored 12 minutes later to give Belgium a two-goal lead, and the Red Devils hung on for a 2-1 victory Tuesday.

  • tough sledding Tough sledding: Upcoming GC football schedules offer a lot to ponder
    For some Golden Circle football programs, the UIL’s realignment meant a better competition draw, and favorable travel arrangements. For others, far from that. The football schedules, for the most part, are in. And for the most part, the UIL was none too kind to the area.

  • Gwynn front page Remembering Gwynn: One time in June 1997 ...
    My childhood baseball heroes did not play during my childhood, strange as that may sound. ... I have three players I consider my all-time favorites, and one — Nomar Garciaparra — is four years younger than me. Another will be inducted into the Hall of Fame this year. Greg Maddux, 48, is now a Texas Rangers consultant. And then there is the late Tony Gwynn, who passed away last week at 54. His death numbed me.
