Bloomfield played nasty baseball on a nasty day in Santa Fe.
The Bobcats fell to SIlver City 8-0 in the third-place game of the St. Michael's Tournament.
Bloomfield managed just one hit and committed seven errors in the field.
"Silver City did every facet of the game better than we did. The weather was bad and the baseball was bad," said BHS head coach Frank DeHoyos. "Both teams dealt with the elements, but Silver was more mentally tough than we are right now."
Bloomfield's Josh Archibeque took the loss on the mound.
The Bobcats walked or hit five batters in the game.
"Seven errors and five walks, that is 12 runs right there. We were lucky it was only 8-0," DeHoyos said. "This was a big wake-up call for us. A lot of our guys played last year and made it to the 4A playoffs as a young group. They are still young now and I have to remember that as a coach, but toughness is toughness regardless of age. Our challenege is to become mentally tougher and handle the ups and downs of baseball better."
Bloomfield will visit Santa Fe twice next week with a game at Pojoaque Valley on Tuesday and another game at St. Mike's later in the week.
