The Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team swept a big doubleheader Saturday at Bomber Field.

Los Alamos scored three unearned runs in the fifth inning of the first game against the Miyamura Patriots to win the opener 3-2, then broke open a tight ballgame in the nightcap with a three-run sixth inning, an inning which included an inside-the-park home run by Jared Mang for a 7-2 victory.

The Patriots are a dangerous Class 4A program that beat the Hilltoppers earlier this season, but the Hilltoppers with the wins claim the season tiebreaker.

Lane Saunders, who came on in relief of starter Steven Williams in the fifth inning, earned the victory and Connor Mang picked up the save in game one. Jared Mang threw a complete game to earn the win in game two.

More information on the doubleheader will be in Tuesday’s Los Alamos Monitor.
