The Hilltopper dugout looks on as Santa Fe changes pitchers during Wednesday’s game at Clyde Faucett Field in Santa Fe. The Hilltoppers knocked out Santa Fe’s starting pitcher Kodi Richards early en route to an 18-4 win.
'Toppers rout Demons to go to 9-0 in district

SANTA FE – It was an unexpected game with an unexpectedly lopsided outcome.
Los Alamos’ baseball team took on the Santa Fe Demons in a big District 2-4A contest Wednesday night.
But while Los Alamos was on a mission Wednesday, a similar mission statement seemed to be lacking from the Demons.
Los Alamos scored at least two runs in each of its five at-bats at Clyde Faucett Field, including a six-run top of the fifth to put the game away as it handled Santa Fe in a romp, 18-4.
Hilltopper Jake Downs had the biggest game of his career in the win, that kept Los Alamos a perfect 9-0 in district play. Downs not only started and won the game on the hill, he went 4-for-5 at the plate with two triples, a double and drove in a whopping six runs.
Downs missed hitting for the cycle by about six feet – his second triple made it all the way to the warning track in deep left-center, the second deepest spot in the ballpark.
“I was relaxed and I was seeing the ball,” Downs said of his big day at the plate. “Just relaxing and I stayed loose up there and I was just hitting the ball hard.”
With its win, the Hilltoppers remain in full control of the 2-4A standings heading into their most important contests of the season, a doubleheader Saturday at home against the Española Valley.
