LA picks up doubleheader sweep to improve to 3-0

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

While there’s still a long way to go, the Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team is off to a good start in keeping its firm grip at the top of District 2-4A.
Los Alamos won one the hard way, then won one the easy way en route to a big district doubleheader sweep Saturday at Bomber Field. Los Alamos scratched out a run in its final at-bat in game one, then, to start off game two, had a big bottom of the first inning that let it play with some cushion.
The Hilltoppers won the opening game 3-2, then cruised to a big 13-3 win in five innings in the nightcap.
The wins put the Hilltoppers at 3-0 early on in 2-4A play. Their toughest test of the district season, however, could come this week when they play at Española Valley.
But for now, Los Alamos will enjoy the wins.
“It was pretty great,” said Hilltopper Jake Downs of the sweep. “The first game was really intense. We just had to battle through it, stay calm and do what we had to do.”
Downs through six strong innings in game one. He gave up just three hits and one earned run before giving way to Connor Mang after pitching to one batter in the seventh — Mang would get credit for the win, setting down all three batters he faced.
