BHS BASEBALL: First-inning mistake costly for Bulldogs


Baker made its only big mistake early, but by then it was already too late.

An error with two outs in the top of the first gave Fruitland another chance, and the Grizzlies took advantage with a grand slam that gave them a 6-0 lead they would not relinquish.

Fruitland held on for an 8-4 win in a non-league baseball game Tuesday afternoon at the blustery Baker Sports Complex.

“After that we outplayed them, outscored them, outhit them,” Baker Coach Dan Blankenship said. “But unfortunately they count all seven innings, not just six.”

Five of Fruitland’s six runs in the first inning were unearned.

That’s just too much of a gift to give the Grizzlies, the three-time defending state champion in Idaho, Blankenship said.

“Fruitland is a really good baseball team,” he said.

Bad start notwithstanding, Blankenship was pleased with Baker’s response.

Pitchers Darren Dolby and Mason Cline pretty much controlled Fruitland after the first inning.

Cline led the Baker offense with a trio of doubles, one of which scored a run. And Caleb Custer had an RBI hit.

Baker (4-5) traveled to Hermiston today for a non-league game.
