The Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team apparently doesn’t like to have fans leaving halfway through a doubleheader.
The previous weekend, Los Alamos just got by Española Valley in game one only to slam the door early in game two to earn a big District 2AAAA sweep.
Saturday, the Hilltoppers needed extra innings in game one against the Taos Tigers, then put up an eight-run second inning to help secure another sweep.
Los Alamos traveled to Taos for the 2AAAA twinbill, grabbing 8-2 and 17-1 victories. The two wins now put the Hilltoppers within sight of a District 2AAAA championship.
However, Hilltopper manager Mike Gill isn’t quite ready to celebrate just yet.
“You know, 7-0 is a good start, and that’s it,” Gill said, alluding to the team’s spotless district record to date. “Right now, 7-0 doesn’t get you anything.”
The Hilltoppers (8-10 overall) have just five games remaining in their 2AAAA season, including a pair of big district tilts against Bernalillo on the road Saturday.
