A big start and a big finish helped put Tuesday’s game away early for the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team.
Los Alamos scored seven runs in the first two innings of its contest against the Pojoaque Valley Elkettes, then exploded for five runs in the home half of the fifth to win 13-3 in a mercy-rule shortened game at Overlook Park.
Hilltopper reserve third baseman Madeline Lockhart lined a triple into right field with the bases juiced in the fifth inning to set Los Alamos up for the winning scores at the end of the contest. Lockhart and Krysta Salazar would come in to score later in the inning to finish off the Elkettes.
“We’re making good contact,” Hilltopper manager Roger Anaya said. “Today we obviously hit the ball well.”
Just one game after the Hilltoppers pounded out 18 hits, 9 of those going for extra bases, in a win over Moriarty, the Hilltoppers slugged out six extra-base hits, at least one in every inning but the third, the only inning they didn’t score.
Los Alamos (3-4) jumped on Pojoaque Valley starting pitcher Angelica Romero early, getting a pair of doubles from Aletta Marciano, hitting out of the 3-hole, and Hannah Mojica in the 5-spot.
