  • State baseball: Cards ousted by Spartans

    Remember the Spartans?

    Robertson's baseball team does, and it's a bad memory.

    For the second year in a row, Bernalillo was responsible for ending the Cardinals' postseason. The No. 6 seeded Spartans beat No. 3 RHS 6-2 in the Class 4A quarterfinals on Thursday afternoon at Rio Rancho High.

    In 2017, Bernalillo edged Robertson two games to one in the state tournament's first round.

    The upset ended a remarkable season for the Redbirds, who won 23 out of 28 games, clinched the District 2-4A title and held the No. 1 ranking in 4A for a time.

    The Rangers defeated Jemez Valley 11-3 in another Thursday semifinal at Cleveland. Kenny Martinez earned the pitching win.

    Lefonso Castillo drew first blood for Mora when Jemez botched a play with two outs in the Ranger half of the second inning.

    Cobre scored in the sixth inning to pull ahead and held on for the one-run win, advancing to meet Portales in the playback bracket. It was the Indians' third win over Robertson in as many meetings this spring.
