Both the Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball and softball teams are sitting atop the District 2-4A standings, but two big tests await both teams Friday.
Los Alamos will host both a softball and baseball doubleheader against Bernalillo Friday. The doubleheaders will start at 3 p.m. at both Bomber Field on North Mesa and Overlook Park in White Rock.
The circumstances are different in the two games, but should the teams sweep the Spartans Friday, both will take big steps to securing the 2011 district title.
In baseball, Los Alamos and Bernalillo have met twice before this season, splitting those two contests. However, Los Alamos won the one that affected the district standings, holding off the Spartans 4-3 in Bernalillo March 30.
In that game, pitcher JD Weiss, who has sparkled for the Hilltoppers during the district season, threw a gem to open 2-4A play. Weiss outdueled the Spartans’ Ryan Garcia to get the complete game win.
Weiss gave up seven hits in the game, however, three of Bernalillo’s hits left the ballpark.
In the top of the seventh inning, eighth grader Jared Mang launched a home run of his own, to center field, which proved to be the game’s winning run.
