Baseball: LA wins District 1 All-Star tourney

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

Austin Aslin got plenty more help than he’d need Tuesday night.

Aslin, pitching for the Los Alamos Juniors All-Stars, retired the first seven hitters he faced and allowed just one run as Los Alamos routed Pojoaque Valley 14-1 to take the District 1 baseball tournament Tuesday.

Behind Aslin, who threw a complete mercy rule-shortened game, Los Alamos pounded out 11 hits in the five innings, opening up a 9-0 edge after just an inning and a half.

“After we got the lead, we felt pretty confident we’d pull it out,” Aslin said.

Tuesday’s win at Virchow Field capped an impressive tournament run for Los Alamos’ All-Stars. They scored 41 runs in their three tournament games, downing all other teams in the tournament, Santa Fe, White Rock and Pojoaque.

Pojoaque qualified for the tournament final following an improbable comeback Monday night against White Rock. White Rock led 6-0 at one point in Monday’s game, but Pojoaque scored three unanswered in the final two innings to win 9-8.

Pojoaque’s chances to get back into Tuesday’s game, however, were few and far between. Aslin struck out eight hitters in the five-inning contest, including fanning the side in the final frame, and got plenty of help from his defense throughout.
