The Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team will look to break into the win column today when it takes on the Pojoaque Valley Elks.
Los Alamos opened up its 2014 season Saturday, but was swept in a doubleheader in the Four Corners area by the Piedra Vista Panthers.
While Hilltopper manager Mike Gill said he would’ve much preferred a couple of wins at Piedra Vista, he thought his team played very well for an opener.
“We hit the ball pretty hard, but we just didn’t get hits,” Gill said following Saturday’s losses. “We out-hit them (in game two), the difference was when they got guys in scoring position, they got them in.”
Los Alamos lost the first game 7-2, although the Hilltoppers could’ve kept within striking distance if not for some costly errors late.
In the second game, Los Alamos bounced back from a 4-0 deficit and actually led 5-4 heading into the bottom of the seventh. Piedra Vista, however, scratched out a run in the inning to force extras, and won in nine innings, 6-5.
