The Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team held off a comeback attempt by the Hope Christian Huskies to win at home Tuesday.
Right fielder Austin Aslin speared a fly ball tailing away from him down the line to save a run in the sixth inning. Meanwhile, pitcher Danny Finn, making his first start of the season, threw four innings of one-hit ball as the Hilltoppers dropped the Huskies 5-2 at Bomber Field.
It was the fifth win in six outings for the Hilltoppers (6-4), who are heading into a tough test at the Piedra Vista Invitational this weekend.
“We’re throwing strikes and we’re playing good defense,” said Los Alamos manager Mike Gill, who has seen his team make just one error in the last three games. “That’s keeping us in ballgames and we’re getting some timely hitting.”
Against Hope Christian (4-1), Los Alamos got a good start from Finn, who was pulled after four innings because he was nearing his pitch-count limit. Finn didn’t allow a run and struck out four batters to pick up his first win of the season.
Los Alamos led 5-0 after five innings, but Hope came back to score two runs in the sixth and might have had another had it not been for Aslin’s big catch in right field.
