The Bayfield High School baseball team lost 15-11 to Dolores in its first game of the Cortez Tournament on Thursday.
BHS got 11 runs on 16 hits, while the Bears knocked in 15 on just 11 hits, making the most of their opportunities.
"We got outplayed (Thursday)," BHS coach Ken Hibbard said. "We outhit them, which surprised me when I did the totals, but they attacked us (Thursday). They deserved to win that game. Hats off to Dolores."
Ryan Terry went 4-for-4 for the Wolverines, and first baseman Shea Conrad knocked in three RBIs on three hits.
"He's been killing the ball lately," Hibbard said of Conrad. "He's on fire."
Brenden Harrison and Nicolas Mimmack both went 2-for-4 in the loss, credited to Bayfield starter Logan Funkhouser (1-1).
"We didn't self destruct," Hibbard said. "We're not going to go undefeated. We want to win all of our games, and we'll keep trying to do that."
Bayfield will face the losers of Palmer and Brighton today at 5 p.m.
The Bayfield JV team also is participating in the tournament, which pits JV against varsity squads. The Wolverines' JV lost its first game to Delta 8-2 and will play in the losers' bracket today.
