Los Alamos Little League’s Majors All-Stars advanced to the semifinal round of their District 1 tournament with a big win over Santa Fe National Tuesday.

William Steinkamp threw three innings of 1-hit ball, while Los Alamos jumped out to a big early lead and never looked back, winning 13-2 in just 3-1/2 innings of play.

Los Alamos now advances to play Española Valley in Thursday’s semifinal at Byers Field. The winner of that game will be in the driver’s seat to take the District 1 title and advance to state.

The Majors tournament is one of two currently going on at Overlook Park. In the Juniors Little League tournament, which is being played at Virchow Field, Los Alamos’ Juniors also won their second round contest Tuesday, topping Pecos 12-2 in six innings.

In that game, Henry Steinkamp went 5-for-5 with three doubles and a triple, scoring a pair of runs.

White Rock’s Juniors, however, were bounced from the tournament with a loss to Santa Fe Tuesday.
