The Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team improved to a perfect 6-0 with its pair of crushing victories this weekend.
Los Alamos, which remains in first place heading into this week’s play, blasted the Capital Jaguars by a combined 43-1 in the teams’ doubleheader this weekend in Santa Fe. Los Alamos won the first game 26-0, then cruised to a big 17-1 victory in game two.
It has been rough going for Capital. It has been outscored by more than a 4-1 margin and has been limited to five runs in five district games so far.
For the Hilltoppers (14-6 overall), they control their own destiny in district right now, with their only serious contender being Española Valley (12-6, 3-1 in 2-4A). Española Valley, which the Hilltoppers nipped 3-2 last week, has a big game Wednesday at Bernalillo.
Los Alamos will be off this week until Saturday, when it starts the second half of 2-4A play. Los Alamos will travel to Bernalillo for a doubleheader.
The Hilltoppers defeated Bernalillo’s Spartans (4-13, 1-2) by a count of 10-3 April 2 at Bomber Field.
