  • LA-WR picks up 16-8 win to advance

    After falling behind the Pojoaque All-Stars early, the Los Alamos-White Rock All-Stars put up big numbers in the middle innings to win the opener of the District 1 Junior baseball tournament.
    Pojoaque scored eight runs on just three hits in the first three innings Monday at Senior Field on North Mesa, but the LA-WR squad scored five runs in the third, three in the fourth and five more in the fifth to win going away, 16-8.
    The game was a marathon affair, taking over 3-1/2 hours to finish up seven innings.
    The game was slowed by a slew of walks and a protest by Pojoaque that required a ruling from Little League officials in Waco, Texas, before being denied.

    The winner of that game will have two shots at the District 1 championship while tonight’s loser will have to win three straight games to earn the district title. Tonight’s winner will also have the added bonus of getting Wednesday night off.
