LA All-Stars finish in third place
The Los Alamos Little League 9/10 All-Stars bowed out of the state baseball tournament with a 10-7 loss Thursday night.
The loss to Carlsbad ended a solid run by Los Alamos in the tournament, which was played in Portales. Los Alamos picked up two straight wins to advance to the semifinals, but was topped by Albuquerque Eastdale in the semifinal round and Carlsbad in Thursday’s elimination game.
Los Alamos finished the tournament in third place.
“The Eastdale team is really good,” Los Alamos manager Lance Eaton said. “Against Carlsbad, we just made too many mistakes. We actually out-hit them, but just had some mistakes. That’s Little League baseball.”
