Baseball: Tigers outlast Cubs in county tournament game

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

With rains falling on and off Saturday, the White Rock Tigers wanted to score as many runs as possible early.

And with some heads-up baserunning and timely hitting in the first and third innings, the Tigers were able to do just that.

The White Rock Tigers, the top-seeded team in the Los Alamos County Majors Little League Tournament, scored three runs in the top of the first and two more in the top of the third to knock off the Los Alamos Cubs 8-3 at Byers Field.

With the win in Saturday morning’s contest, the Tigers, who lost just one game during the regular season, secured a place in the tournament finals. They will face the winner of Monday’s game in the county final.

The Tigers could close out the tournament championship with a win Tuesday. A loss will force a one-game playoff for the county Majors title Wednesday night. Both Tuesday’s game and Wednesday’s game - if necessary - would be played in White Rock.

Saturday, Tiger clean-up hitter Jared Mang came just a double short of hitting for the cycle, while younger brother Connor Mang had a home run and a pair of doubles and scored three runs.
