  • Lady Dons’ power hitting pays...

    Amanda Garcia's three-run walk-off home run lifted host West Las Vegas to a wild 11-9 victory over crosstown rival Robertson Tuesday afternoon.

    “Thank God we can hit the long ball,” quipped WLV head coach Lucas Griego after the dust settled on one of his club's better wins to date.

    Robertson had taken control on runs by Katie Houdek and Marka Garcia in the top of the fifth inning.

    Garcia’s score, off an Alicia Jaramillo hit, gave the Lady Cardinals a 9-5 edge midway through the fifth.

    Fabian Montoya and Dominic Yara were both 3 for 4 to lead the Redbird bats.

    Peter Campos went 2 of 3 with a walk, and Nick Archuleta and Estevan Montoya both went 2 for 4.
