LA's late comeback try falls short vs. St. Pius X

-A A +A
By Mike Cote

With a late comeback attempt, the Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team had a chance to erase a disastrous fifth inning Tuesday.
Los Alamos, which trailed by 6 runs going into its final at-bat, scored three times and had the tying run at the plate against St. Pius X and pitcher Katie Johnson.
But Johnson, who labored through the final three innings, got Alyssa Mojica to ground out with two runners on in the seventh to preserve a 12-9 victory over the Hilltoppers at Overlook Park.
Los Alamos put four of its first five batters of the seventh inning on board and Kiana Zerr and Shelby Chavez came through with RBI singles in the inning before Johnson finally got out of the jam.
“They showed a lot of fight, even during that last inning,” Los Alamos manager Roger Anaya said afterward. “We had one bad inning…but every girl who came up to bat, they were all eager. You always look forward to being the hero and today we had a lot of girls who wanted to be the hero.”
Los Alamos and St. Pius, of course, have played tight contests in the past and Tuesday’s game might have even been tighter if not for a disastrous fifth inning for the Hilltoppers.
