By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team picked up a third-place finish at the Andres Arguello Memorial Tournament this weekend.
Los Alamos scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth inning against Socorro (Texas) Saturday to win the tournament’s third-place game, 7-5. Los Alamos won two of three contests at the tournament, but fell 10-0 in the semifinal to host St. Pius X.
The third-place finish was an accomplishment for the Hilltoppers, particularly the seniors, who had never placed better than fourth at the Arguello tournament.
In Saturday’s game against Socorro, Hilltopper ace JD Weiss threw four hitless innings in a critical stretch to keep his team with Socorro.
With the game tied at 4 late, Los Alamos scraped together three hits, a walk, a sacrifice bunt and a hit batsman to push three runs across. Kyle Parks had a big run-scoring hit with two outs to give the Hilltoppers the lead.
Los Alamos manager called Saturday’s victory a total team win.
“We’re just playing really good baseball,” said Gill. “We kind of ran into a buzzsaw against Pius. They just beat us, but overall, we’re playing good baseball. The chemistry is so good. We’re playing good as a team.”
