LA comes through in tough contest vs. Hope

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

For the past two games, the Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team has had trouble putting runs on the board, so Los Alamos manager Mike Gill thought it was time to shake things up.
His moves paid dividends Wednesday.
Los Alamos hosted the defending Class 3A champion Hope Christian Huskies at Bomber Field, its second game in two days against a potential state champion threat.
It was Los Alamos’ first appearance at home and its only home game until April.
The Hilltoppers won’t be at home again until they face Bernalillo April 2 to open district play.
The Hilltoppers took control of a tight contest in the third inning, scoring three runs, then did enough damage control in the top of the sixth to earn a 4-3 win.
Against Class 5A Atrisco Heritage Saturday, Los Alamos escaped with a 1-0 victory, then was held to just three runs, while its lineup fanned nine times in a loss Tuesday to Albuquerque Academy.
That type of run production wasn’t going to do, Gill said.
“You look at our last couple of scores…we’ve been struggling offensively,” he said. “We kind of mixed it up today with the lineup, with this and that, and the kids came through. We didn’t get a lot of hits, but we got the ones that mattered.”
