Bayfield doubles, triples up Dolores

The Bayfield High School baseball team did more than double-up the Dolores Bears on Saturday.

The Wolverines even did more than triple it; they put up a score 29-times higher than the Bears, winning with a 29-1 final score.

“We pounded the ball (Saturday),” BHS head coach Tom Horton said.

The Wolverines jumped out fast, scoring 11 in the first inning on a flurry of base hits.

“We really needed it. It was good to get those hits,” Horton said of his sub-.500 team. “I think everyone had at least one hit.”

Tyler Kerr hit an inside-the-park home run, the first of his high school career.

From the mound, Clay Miller took the win, pitching four innings of one-hit baseball.

Bayfield improved to 4-5 with the win and will play Durango – after the Wolverines’ spring break – on April 6 at DHS in a rare regional rivalry game.
