Softball: Toppers crush Jaguars, improve to 5-0 in district

By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team scored 11 runs in the second inning en route to a dismantling of District 2AAAA opponent Capital Wednesday.

The Hilltoppers put together three big innings of the four innings played during Wednesday's mercy-rule shortened game. They scored three times to open the contest and six more in the fourth inning as they routed the Jaguars 20-1.

"It was nice to have a game like that after a long week," Los Alamos manager Roger Anaya said. Los Alamos went into the game following three intense district contests against Bernalillo and Española Valley, all home wins for the Hilltoppers.

The Jaguars (1-15 overall, 0-5 in 2AAAA) gave the Hilltoppers a chance to sprinkle in some of their reserves Wednesday and many of them came through, including Shannon Krause, who went 2-for-4 and drove in three runs.

Anaya said Capital threw pitchers who mainly offered off-speed pitches, but Los Alamos, which has seen mostly fireballers this season, was able to make the adjustments and get the hits they needed.
