It took Baker almost half the game to figure out Weiser’s pitcher, but when the Bulldogs did their bats got hot.

Baker (2-0) trailed 4-0 after three innings then erupted for nine runs to defeat Weiser 9-6 in the nonleague softball game at the Baker Sports Complex.

“After I kind of blew my cool the girls finally made the adjustments we needed,” said Baker coach Al McCauley.

“Their pitcher was throwing a two-seam fast ball that was moving outside. Then, when we finally decided to stay back and hit the ball to right field we starting hitting the ball."

Baker had just one hit, a Kayla Davis single, in the first three innings. The Bulldogs finished the game with 11 hits.

Consecutive RBI singles by Julianna Delatorre, Davis and Taylor Ellis cut Baker’s deficit to 4-3 in the fourth inning.

Baker then took its first lead in the fifth inning on an RBI single from Taylor McAdams and an RBI double from Michelle Freese.

Then, after Weiser took a 6-5 edge in the top of the sixth, Baker answered with four runs in the bottom of the inning.

Davis singled, her third hit of the game, and was sacrificed to second by Ellis.

Winning pitcher Sierra Howerton then drove Davis home with a double. Courtney Raley plated Howerton with an RBI single. 

Then, after Abi Smith walked, Darion Grove drove Raley home with a sacrifice fly to center. Smith scored the fourth run in the inning on a passed ball.

Howerton improved her pitching record to 2-0, striking out eight and allowing eight hits.

Baker hosts Caldwell in a nonleague doubleheader Tuesday at the Baker Sports Complex.
