The Los Alamos softball team had its five-game win streak snapped Wednesday by the District 2-5A champs, Bernalillo.
The Spartans stayed perfect in the district, improving to 10-0 in 2-5A and 20-4 overall, with a 5-0 win against the ’Toppers (6-4, 11-13).
“Overall it was a well played game,” Los Alamos manager Roger Anaya said. “We definitely played better than the first time we played them.”
It was certainly closer that their previous games.
The first time Los Alamos played Bernalillo, the Spartans hit eight home runs in a doubleheader.
Jordan Hammock kept Bernalillo’s bats a lot quieter Wednesday, only giving up one extra-base hit and no home runs. “They had to earn every run,” Anaya said.
Hammock pitched all seven innings, giving up 11 hits, five runs — three of which were earned — while striking out five and walking three. “She threw a great game,” Anaya said.
Bernalillo’s pitcher, Isabella Navarro, was also impressive. She struck out 12 ’Toppers in the game.
“Their pitcher is very tough,” Anaya said. “She has the best rise ball we’ve seen.”
