The Santa Fe Fuego semi-professional baseball team snapped an eight-game losing streak Thursday night.
The Fuego, a startup franchise in the Pecos League, which features six teams from the local region — four of them play in New Mexico — has struggled early on in the season, but earned a 12-5 victory over the league-leading Las Cruces Vaqueros at Fort Marcy Park Thursday.
In that game, Santa Fe (4-11) jumped on Las Cruces ace Bruce Amende, hitting him up for 11 runs in four innings. Designated hitter Kieran Bradford went 3-for-3 with a solo home run and scored three times.
Las Cruces (9-5) currently is on top of the Pecos League standings, one of just two teams with a winning record in the league.
Santa Fe and Las Cruces will play the second of their four-game set at Fort Marcy Park tonight. Game time is 6 p.m.
