One of its most balanced offensive showings of the season helped propel the Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team to a win Wednesday.
Los Alamos scored in five of its six plate appearances at Bomber Field, taking a solid 10-3 win over Bernalillo to open the District 2-4A season. Los Alamos scored two runs each in the second, third and fourth innings, then came through with three runs in the fifth to all but put the game away.
The Spartans tried to rally in the top of the sixth and, although it squeezed out a pair of runs, never could make a serious charge to get back in the ballgame.
It was a big day for several Hilltoppers, including Lane Saunders.
Saunders started the game on the hill for Los Alamos, going 3-1/3 innings and giving up just one run. Saunders also went 4-for-4 at the plate with a double and drove in a pair of runs.
“I just fixed the way I was approaching things,” he said. “It was more of an attack than waiting for your pitch…just more aggressive, not as picky. It was just my day, I guess.”
Despite the Hilltoppers collecting 12 hits in the game, only Saunders and Trevor Pacheco had multi-hit games Wednesday. Pacheco finished 2-for-3 and scored three times.
