The opportunity to play against the southwest’s top junior softball talent will benefit Los Alamos Little League, despite going winless last weekend.
Los Alamos hosted the Little League Junior Softball Southwestern Regional last Saturday through Tuesday at the North Mesa Sports Complex. The regional included Texas West (Oil Belt Little League), Texas East (La Grange Little League), Louisiana (Vidalia Girls Softball), Deming, who was the New Mexico representative and Los Alamos, who earned a bid for hosting the regional.
Texas East won the regional on Tuesday to advance to the Little League World Series.
The host battled but went winless
Los Alamos began the regional on Saturday by falling to Texas West 9-1. Texas West got the scoring started by tallying three runs in the first innings and Los Alamos answered with one run in the bottom of the first. Texas West added two more runs in the second to lead 5-1. Los Alamos missed a prime opportunity to get back into the game when it left a runner stranded on third base in the bottom of the fifth. Texas West put the game out of reach with three runs in the sixth.
