Is there any cure for the Capital High baseball team?
The program has yet to have a winning record despite a number of coaching changes, and Wednesday’s 9-1 District 2-5A loss at Albuquerque Del Norte put the Jaguars at 3-18 overall and 1-6 in district.
The lone district win was at 5-4 at Espanola Valley. Saturday, the teams meet again in a doubleheader at Capital, and with a chance for the Jags to leave the basement for the Sundevils (1-6, 2-18). They would also like to win both games and end an 11-of-12 losing skein.
The Jags scored once in the top of the sixth, but the Knights (4-4, 6-13) pushed across single runs in the first three innings, and added three in the fourth and three in the fifth.
Also in 2-5A, first place Albuquerque Academy extended its lead to 8-1 (14-8 overall) with its 5-4 win at second place Los Alamos (6-3, 12-10).Back on March 31, the Chargers won twice over the Hilltoppers at home.
At Robertson, Santa Fe Indian School split a doubleheader in non district play. In the opener, the Braves triumphed 5-4 for their 10th win in their last dozen starts, but Robertson stormed back to take the closer, 10-3, and move to 18-3 overall. Indian School is now 1-1 in 5-4A and 14-5 overall.
In game one, the Braves scored once each in the second and third innings, added three more in the fifth. The Cardinals scored their four runs in the second inning. In game two, it was Robertson putting together three runs in the second, two in the third, three in the fourth, and two in the fifth, while Indian School scored one each in the second, fourth and sixth,
