It was a rough day to be an Española Valley Sundevil Wednesday.
Along with playing on the road in chilly conditions against arch-rival Los Alamos, the Sundevil batters got hit by pitches four times in Wednesday’s game.
Meanwhile, the Hilltoppers pounded out 16 hits, 6 for extra bases, as they won a key early season District 2-4A softball game at Overlook Park.
Los Alamos scored in every innings and multiple runs in all but one inning to thump Española Valley 15-5 in six innings.
The win over Española Valley gives Los Alamos no worse than sole possession of second place – the result of Wednesday’s Bernalillo-Capital game hadn’t been reported as of press time – with Los Alamos just a doubleheader against Capital away from reaching the halfway point in the district season.
The Sundevils (7-6 overall, 2-2 in district) have been very much up-and-down this season and it was hard to know exactly what to expect from the team, but Los Alamos liked its chances going into the match-up.
