LAHS baseball drops final non-district contest

-A A +A
By Phil Scherer

Throughout the first half of the season, the strengths of the Los Alamos High School baseball team have been consistent pitching and a resilient offensive attack. In Friday afternoon’s home opener against Aztec, both of those skills were on display at times. Unfortunately for the Hilltoppers, though, the Tigers proved to be even more resilient, rallying from three runs down to spoil LAHS’ Bomber Field debut with a 7-6 victory.

The Hilltoppers entered the game on a six-game winning streak, including a come from behind victory against Moriarty in the team’s district opener. 

Early on in the home opener, the ball appeared to be bouncing in LAHS’ direction, as catcher Luke Kirkland threw out a pair of would-be base stealers in the first two innings, first erasing a single by Aztec leadoff man Zack Taylor and later erasing a walk to pitcher Carson Adcock. 

The Hilltoppers seized the opportunity, jumping on top in the first inning. Arthur Steinkamp, LAHS’ starting pitching, laid down a perfect bunt in front of the plate and beat the throw to first base to set up a rally. He advanced to second base on a fielder’s choice and went to third base on a wild pitch.
