The Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team was nipped by the Durango (Colo.) Demons in the first round of the Piedra Vista Invitational.
Durango topped Los Alamos 8-6 in Thursday’s first round game, played at Ricketts Park in Farmington. The loss by the Hilltoppers (2-7) moves them into the consolation bracket. They were scheduled to face the Miyamura Patriots today.
The Patriots, whom Los Alamos lost to in the opening round of the 2012 playoffs, fell in the first round of the tournament to Piedra Vista 10-0, in a rematch of the Class 4A title game last season.
Also at the tournament, Farmington defeated Bayfield, Colo., 4-3 and will play Fruita, Colo., in the semifinal round. Fruita dropped Valencia 11-3 Thursday.
The Piedra Vista Invitational continues through Saturday.
