TAOS — Clovis’ American All-Stars were ousted from the double-elimination 11-year-old state tournament on Monday in a 15-1 los to Los Lunas Enchantment.

The game ended in four innings on the 10-run rule. American’s only run was scored by Scott Lyberger, who singled, reached third on a single by Ethan Dennie and was awarded home plate on fielder’s interference.

“These kids gave it their best shot,” said American manager Mike Dennie, whose team went 1-2 in the tourney. “There’s just a bunch of good teams up here.”
