McCauley throws no-no at GU

JOHN DAY — Baker combined solid pitching, big bats and tough defense Thursday, sweeping Grant Union 11-0, 13-3 in a non-league softball doubleheader at John Day.

D.J. McCauley threw a  six-inning no-hitter in the first game. McCauley struck out 11 and walked one. Grant Union managed just two baserunners.

Tori Brown then threw a two-hitter in the second game.

“Any time your pitchers give up just two hits in a doubleheader you’re going to win a lot of ball games,” said Baker coach Al McCauley.

The Bulldogs’ bats backed up their pitching, hammering 27 hits in the twinbill.

“We put some runs together where the girls hit the ball well,” McCauley said.

In Game 1, Baker got started with four runs in the first inning.

Sierra Howerton reached base on an error, and was singled home by Laura Wilson. McCauley then singled Wilson home and advanced on a Jessi Stephens single. Morgan Johnson added an RBI single later in the inning.

In the second inning, Howerton again reached on an error and later scored on a Wilson double.

Baker added four more runs in the fifth. Wilson singled and McCauley doubled. Brown then scored both runners with a single. Stephens singled, and Brown scored on a Taylor Ellis single. Stephens scored on a Johnson ground out.

McCauley opened the sixth with a walk and rode home on Brown’s first home run of the season.

In Game 2, Baker took a 2-0 first-inning lead thanks to four Grant Union errors.

Then, after Grant Union took a 3-2 lead in the seconde, Baker answered with five runs in the third and six in the fourth.

In the third, McKenzie Srack drove home two runs, Brown one, Ellis one and Howerton one.

In the fourth, Howerton slugged a three-run home run. Johnson added a two-run single, and Aubree Shepherd a run-scoring infield single.
