Hilltopper baseball dominates Española on the road

-A A +A
By Phil Scherer

With a convincing doubleheader sweep against Española Valley on Saturday, the Los Alamos High School softball team moved one step closer to clinching the District 2-4A championship. 

LAHS won both games of the doubleheader in dominant fashion, taking the first game 13-0, and the second game 14-1. Both games ended via the mercy rule after five innings. 

With the doubleheader sweep, LAHS improves to 16-7 overall and 8-1 in district play. 

The team’s one district loss came in 11 innings in the first game of the doubleheader at Taos, the district’s second place team. 

In the first game, Arthur Steinkamp continued his dominant season on the mound, pitching the first four innings for the Hilltoppers. He struck out seven batters and allowed only two hits. He did not walk a batter. 

In the first inning, all nine batters reached base and scored for the Hilltoppers. 

In total, the team drew six walks, had four hits and saw 10 runs cross the plate as the game got out of hand in a hurry. 

The Hilltoppers continued to add on after the first inning, adding three additional runs thanks to a pair of passed balls by the Española pitcher and a triple by James Neal.
