Softball: LA bangs out nine extra-base hits Tuesday

By The Staff

The Los Alamos Hilltopper softball team scored eight runs in a three-inning stretch to drop the Moriarty Pintos Tuesday afternoon.
Los Alamos scored four times in the top of the fourth to take control of Tuesday’s game against Class 4A rival Moriarty. Meanwhile, pitcher Monika Teter came on in relief to throw three straight shutout innings as the Hilltoppers picked up an important road victory, topping the Pintos 12-7.
It was the first game for Los Alamos in a week, as its previous outing at the Piedra Vista Invitational and its scheduled home opener against Cleveland were both called due to weather. Los Alamos’ game with Cleveland was rescheduled for today.
Los Alamos (2-2) hammered out six extra-base hits in the fourth and fifth innings, five doubles and a triple by first baseman Erin Kirk.
Moriarty (0-2) actually took a 4-2 lead after one inning and was up 5-4 heading into the fourth before Los Alamos’ rally. Moriarty came up with nine hits in the game, getting off to a hot start against Hilltopper starting pitcher Rachel Anaya.
Anaya settled down after a rough start to give up just one more run in the next two innings while the Hilltoppers got their offense going.
Kristin Christensen hit a home run and Alyssa Mojica had a RBI double in the third inning to get things jump started.
