    Earlier Friday, Los Alamos shut out the ninth-seeded Deming Wildcats to advance to the second round.

  • Toppers shut out in first game of series

    If the Los Alamos Hilltopper baseball team wants to advance in the Class 4A playoffs this season, it's going to have to do it the hard way.

    The Hilltoppers fell in game one of the best-of-three series to the Miyamura Patriots Friday at Bomber Field, 4-0, leaving it just one game from elimination.

    Saturday's Game 2 of the series is set for 11 a.m. Game 3, if necessary, will start approximately 30 minutes following the conclusion of Game 2.

    Los Alamos, the No. 7 seed in the Class 4A postseason, drew 10th-seeded Miyamura, but Miyamura was the sharper looking team in Friday’s opening contest. Miyamura rallied for three runs in the top of the sixth inning and Los Alamos couldn’t answer back late.
