RIO RANCHO – There were some big plays made in the quarterfinal round of the Class 4A state baseball playoffs.
But, unfortunately for the Los Alamos Hilltoppers, it was the Goddard Rockets that made most of them.
Goddard hit two solo home runs Thursday afternoon, one over the fence and one inside the park, while pitcher John Wagner threw a gem to earn the win.
Goddard scored twice in the bottom of the first and had the two home runs in the third and the fifth. While it wasn’t a lot, it was enough for the Rockets to earn a 4-1 victory over the Hilltoppers at Cleveland High School.
That ends the Hilltoppers’ 2014 season. They finish with a record of 22-7.
