Bayfield lost its first baseball game of the season, even if the Wolverines weren't granted a full seven innings to mount a comeback.
Eagle Valley defeated Bayfield 7-3 in 5 1/3 innings in the Wolverines' second game Saturday at the Hotchkiss Tournament on the Western Slope.
"That's the best team we've seen this year," said Wolverines coach Ken Hibbard, who lobbied tournament officials to allow the teams to continue beyond the game's time limit.
"They're well-rounded. They execute.
"I wish we could play teams like that every day," he said.
Brenden Harrison and Shea Conrad had two hits each, and Conrad added an RBI.
Colt Walker was 1-for-2 with an RBI in both games.
"He's the smallest guy on the team, but he's playing his heart out," said Hibbard, who moved Walker to catcher this season.
Bayfield (4-1) defeated Glenwood Springs 13-1 in Game 1.
Ryan Terry "pitched well," Hibbard said. He struck out seven in just three innings pitched.
Harrison was 3-for-3 with four runs scored and three RBIs.
"He had a great weekend up here," Hibbard said.
Conrad was 3-for-4 with four RBIs, and Logan Funkhouser was 2-for-3 with two runs and an RBI.
Jesse Krueger, who is splitting time between track and baseball, went 2-for-3 with two runs and an RBI against Glenwood Springs.
"We asked him to come out for baseball. We asked him to try both," Hibbard said. "He hasn't played since he was like 12, but he's such an athlete.
"He was all smiles."
