Toppers Compete Against Jaguars

Jacob Rutten took to the mound for the first game of a double hitter with the Capital Jaguars Saturday morning at bomber field in Los Alamos. The Toppers were heavily favored to win both games and they did just that winning the first game 12-2 and the second game 10-0. That put the Toppers inline for a game in the state baseball playoffs. Their first game is Friday in Artesia. Go Toppers! Photo by John McHale/ladailypost.com
