Baker overcame extremely windy conditions, including gusts in the mid-30s, to hand Burns a 9-5 nonleague baseball defeat Tuesday at the Baker Sports Complex.

The Bulldogs banged out 11 hits, including eight for extra bases, to send the Hilanders packing.

“Our bats continue to heat up and that’s a good thing,” said Baker coach Tim Smith.

Baker hit for the cycle — single, double, triple and home run — to score four runs in the second inning.

Austin Folkman opened the inning with a double and scored on a triple by Caleb Custer.

Custer then scored on a single by Chace Dixon. One out later, Dixon scored when Kyle Srack slugged a two-run homer to right-centerfield.

Then, with Baker leading 6-2 in the fifth, Burns pulled to within 6-5 on a home run off the right field foul pole.

Srack, who was pitching in relief of starter Mason Cline, then righted himself and shut the Hilanders down the rest of the way.

“I thought Mason Cline pitched really well after a layoff. He gave us four good innings,” Smith said.

“Kyle started out slow in relief, but gathered himself well after giving up the home run.

Srack also led Baker’s offense with a double, home run and three RBIs.

Dixon added two hits and two RBIs. And Cline added a double and two RBIs.

“We are putting the pieces together,” Smith said.

“We’re progressing just as we need to be. I like our mentality right now. We’re not getting rattled.”

Baker returns to Greater Oregon League action Saturday when the Bulldogs host Mac-Hi in a doubleheader beginning at noon.
