  • Toppers pummel Santa Fe's Demons

    SANTA FE — The Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team wasted no time jumping all over the Santa Fe Demon pitching staff Wednesday.
    Los Alamos pounded out seven hits in the top of the first Wednesday, pushing eight runs across the plate in the inning, setting the tone for a District 2-4A rout.
    The Hilltoppers finished with 14 hits in three innings as they closed out the Demons in the minimum five innings, winning 17-0. The victory improved the Hilltoppers 2-4A mark to 3-0.
    Currently, Los Alamos is sitting atop the district standings and can put some separation between itself and the other four 2-4A teams with a good showing at home this weekend.

  • Chinese firm surpasses Exxon in oil production

    NEW YORK (AP) — A big shift is happening in Big Oil: An American giant now ranks behind a Chinese upstart.
