Ryan Buchner notched Los Altos’ lone hit in Friday’s loss.

A pitchers’ duel between Los Altos High ace Alex Reelfs and Los Gatos’ undefeated Ryan Wilcox came down to the last two innings of Friday’s baseball game. Tied at 1 after the fifth, the Wildcats pulled ahead in the sixth on the way to a 5-2 win over the host Eagles.

“I think the result stinks,” said Los Altos head coach Gabriel Stewart, whose team lost both games against Los Gatos last week and dropped into fourth place in the Santa Clara Valley Athletic League De Anza Division at 4-4. “It was a good baseball game. We just ended up on the wrong end of it.”
