LA tops Fruita Monument in tourney

-A A +A
By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team picked up yet another 1-run win over another solid team to open the Piedra Vista Invitational.
Jared Mang threw a complete game against a very good hitting team and the defense behind him was spotless Thursday as Los Alamos nipped Monument High School of Fruita, Colo., 3-2, to open the tournament.
Los Alamos will now advance to face the host Piedra Vista Panthers this afternoon. This will be the third meeting between the two teams this season.
The Hilltoppers pushed two runs across in the first inning, then answered two Monument runs in the second inning with a run in the third, which proved to be the game-winner.
As he did last week against Hope Christian, catcher Trevor Pacheco came through with a clutch base hit with two outs in the third to drive in a run which proved to be the game winner.
“The last three games, we haven’t got a lot of hits, but we’ve gotten a lot of nice, timely hits,” Los Alamos manager Mike Gill said. Los Alamos finished with four hits Thursday.
The Hilltoppers (6-4) have now won four straight contests, all by 1-run margins.
Mang stayed out of trouble in every inning but the second when he walked a Monument batter and hit another with a pitch.
