Upcoming games to watch

Farmington vs. Albuquerque Academy, 11 a.m. Saturday

FHS look to tack on another r’esum’e win to help secure a 5A playoff spot.

The Scorpions already have wins over Miyamura, Oñate, Centennial, Las Cruces and Goddard, and an extra win over another solid 4A foe will help them.

Saturday’s game will also be the first of seven straight games FHS will play at Ricketts Park.

Navajo Prep at Rehoboth Christian, 11 a.m. Saturday

After Thursday’s District 1-3A doubleheader versus Laguna Acoma ended on a positive note, winning the nightcap game 5-2 to force a split, the Eagles’ lineup has a chance to reignite again entering this critical final month of regular-season play.

Down 3-0 in the bottom of the seventh, Prep began rallying via Thomas Montanez’s two-run single down the right field line but came up short in Game 1. Prep’s Game 2 win over Laguna Acoma also showed the Eagles are capable of responding to a tough loss.

It would look good on Prep’s playoff resume if it prolongs that momentum against a solid team like Rehoboth Christian.
