Baseball: 'Toppers split big doubleheader with Spartans

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

With only a handful of games left in the 2011 season, the Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team is still in good shape in the District 2-4A race.
Despite having to settle for a home split Friday afternoon, the Hilltoppers are still ahead of the pack at 7-1 in the district standings. The Hilltoppers lost a close game one contest Friday, but didn’t waste any time bouncing back in game two, scoring 10 runs in the bottom of the first to pick up that win.
Los Alamos took on the Bernalillo Spartans Friday at Bomber Field. Bernalillo and Los Alamos, which have become the two dominant teams in district over the last several seasons, were playing for first place in the district standings.
Bernalillo took the first game in eight innings 3-2, while Los Alamos pounded Bernalillo in the second game, 12-1, closing out that contest in the minimum five innings.
The split not only gave Los Alamos (10-10 overall) a three-game lead over Española Valley heading into Saturday – the Sundevils and Santa Fe’s Demons had a doubleheader scheduled Saturday but results hadn’t been reported as of press time – it also gave Los Alamos effectively a 3-1/2-game lead over Bernalillo (9-10, 4-3 in 2-4A) as Los Alamos now owns the season tiebreaker between the two.
