LOS ANGELES — U.S. and Mexican authorities have unearthed a 240-yard-long (219-meter-long) drug smuggling tunnel under their joint border in the state of Arizona, the latest such find in the violence-scarred region, U.S. officials said July 12. The “sophisticated” six-foot-high by two-foot-wide (1.8-meter by 0.6-meter) tunnel, equipped with lighting and ventilation and located 55 feet (17 meters) underground, was discovered on July 9 when officers raided a business in the Arizona town of San Luis that concealed the U.S. entrance. Three people were arrested, according to a statement about the U.S. operation by federal and local law enforcement bodies. The U.S. raid was coordinated with the Mexican military, which entered an ice-making plant in the Mexican border town of San Luis Río Colorado. The tunnel’s Arizona entrance was located in a storage room hidden beneath a large water tank, in a one-story “nondescript” building. U.S authorities had been monitoring the business since January due to “suspicious activity.” The discovery “is yet another reminder of how desperate these criminal organizations are and the extent they will go to further their drug dealing operations,” said Doug Coleman of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). “The DEA continues to work with our counterparts nationally and internationally to bring to justice these drug trafficking organizations as well as to block their smuggling routes into this country,” he said. Separately, to the far west of the border, the Mexican army found a tunnel that was being built in Tijuana in a warehouse some 300 meters (984 feet) from the border. “A tunnel under construction was found by a patrol while on an observation mission,” General Gilberto Landeros, commander of the II Military Zone, told reporters. The soldiers became suspicious when they saw a person running out of the area. The Tijuana tunnel was 10 meters (33 feet) deep and about 150 meters (492 feet) long.

Christian Rumsey took second, defending PASS champion Zach Newlin, Dave Grube II and Jones. Devin Adams graduated to the ranks of Pennsylvania Sprint Series winners by taking the June 8 checkers at Port Royal Speedway. (Photo by Christi Baker) “I knew he was there the whole race,” Adams said, “and I knew if I could protect the bottom (in turns one and two), then I could hold him off, but I wasn’t sure. It was a little close at the end . . . closer than I’d like.” Adams, a Northern Lebanon High School graduate, took the lead from Jonathan Jones on the second lap and then held off repeated determined challenges from Jones to score the IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car win. Jones electrified the crowd when he spun in the fourth turn during one last desperate pass attempt for the lead. His car did a complete 360 and kept going, with Jones still salvaging a top five finish. All 26 race starters completed the non-stop feature, with 21 finishing on the lead lap. There were 38 entries in all. PORT ROYAL, Pa.

Next Saturday, the PASS sprinters return to Hagerstown Speedway for an interregional event co-hosted by the Virginia Sprint Series. Feature results – 1. Devin Adams; 2. Christian Rumsey; 3.

The Dodgers, winners of 10 of 14, took two of three games in the series and have either won or split their last 11 series in San Diego. The last time they lost a series in San Diego was a three-game sweep in September 2010.“It felt good to get this series,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. “We got a couple of runs early and you’d like to keep tacking on. Hyun-Jin was throwing the ball good and our bullpen did a nice job to held on for the series.”The left-handed Ryu gave up one run and four hits, and he did not allow San Diego to get its first hit until the fourth inning.“He got off to a good start,” said Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis. “He kept them off balance the first time through the lineup. They made some good adjustments, made him throw more in the middle innings.”In three career starts against the Padres, Ryu has allowed only two earned runs in 19 1-3 innings. SAN DIEGO — There is something about the Padres and playing them in San Diego that agrees with Hyun-Jin Ryu and the Dodgers.Ryu threw six strong innings and the Dodgers beat the Padres 2-1 on Sunday.Ryu (9-3) had few problems against the light-hitting Padres, as he won for the sixth time in seven starts since missing more than three weeks with shoulder inflammation.“I try to be aggressive in every ballpark that I pitch in,” Ryu said through a translator. “Today, I think the main thing was ball control. I was able to keep the ball down early and that was the story.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Byrnes had been San Diego’s GM since October 2011. The Padres went 76-86 in his first two seasons and are 32-44 and 13 1/2 games back in the NL West this season.Adrian Gonzalez and Dee Gordon drove in runs against Eric Stults (2-10).J.P. Howell pitched 1 1/3 perfect innings and Brian Wilson got two outs before Kenley Jansen finished off the four-hitter by pitching the ninth for his 22nd save in 25 chances.Hanley Ramirez got the Dodgers going in the first with a one-out single. He stole a base and took third on a wild pitch when Stults walked Yasiel Puig. Ramirez scored on Gonzalez’s ground out.Ryu helped himself in the second when his sacrifice bunt advanced Scott Van Slyke and Ellis. Gordon drove in Van Slyke with an RBI single to right but Ellis was thrown out at home by right fielder Chris Denorfia.Denorfia had two hits off Ryu, including a leadoff double in the sixth. After a groundout advanced him to third, Denorfia scored on Carlos Quentin’s groundout.Mattingly decided to pull Ryu after the sixth because he sensed his starter was getting tired.“I would like to go deeper in the game but toward the end, I felt a little bit extra more fatigue,” Ryu said. “After talking to Donnie about it, he made the call.”Said Ellis: “It was typical Hyun-Jin. He gave us a chance to win the game. He makes big pitches when he has to. He comes to win.”Stults rebounded from a string of six straight subpar starts as he allowed two runs on six hits in a season-high seven innings. He struck out five and walked three. It was just the second time in 24 starts that the lefty has walked more than two batters.“Location was better,” Stults said. “I was able to limit the mistakes and was just able to kind of keep them off balance.”Stults has lost seven consecutive decisions over eight starts.
