all teams picked up runaway victories in their season finales Wednesday.
Los Alamos’ baseball team crushed the Capital Jaguars 15-2 in five innings, while the Los Alamos softball team won 11-1 Both games were played in Santa Fe and both games ended before the full seven innings.
In baseball, Los Alamos (17-9, 11-1 in 2-4A) clinched its fifth straight district title Saturday with a road sweep of Española Valley and qualified for the state Class 4A playoffs. It won 15 of its last 16 games to close out the season.
As it has done in most of its recent wins, the Hilltoppers jumped out to a big early lead and didn’t look back. They pushed four runs across in the top of the first and four more in the top of the third to put the game out of reach early.
The lowly Jaguar baseball team (0-23 overall, 0-10 in 2-4A), which has a doubleheader against crosstown rival Santa Fe before it can mercifully put its 2013 season to bed, has been outscored 308-45 and has managed just 14 runs in 10 district games.
Just across the way, the Hilltopper softball team pounded out 10 hits and scored four runs in the top of the fourth to put the Jaguars away.
