Ontario takes two from Bulldog girls

ONTARIO — Ontario proved to be rude hosts Friday, sweeping Baker 5-1, 5-4 in a Greater Oregon League softball doubleheader.

The sweep leaves Baker in third place in the GOL with a 2-4 record at the midpoint of the league season.

Baker managed just four hits in each game Friday.

“We’ve got to hit the ball,” said Baker coach Al McCauley.

“(Ontario pitcher Jenny) Yano was throwing a rise ball and we were getting under it. We’ve got to get back to hitting the ball better.”

In Game 1, Baker fell behind 5-0 after two innings as Ontario got to Baker starter Tori Brown. Yano drove in three of the runs with a pair of doubles.

Baker’s lone run came in the fourth. Sierra Howerton reached base on an error and was sacrificed to second. She went to third on a single by DJ McCauley, and scored on a Brown single.

Eastland wins pole vault at Union

UNION — Baker’s Jake Eastland won the boys pole vault with a vault of 12 feet Friday at the fourth anual Pepsi Invitational track and field meet at Union High Schol.

Eastland also placed second in the javelin with a toss of 160 feet, 9 inches.

Baker’s Erik Robertson was second in the 400 with a time of 56.05.

Powder Valley’s Jon Galvez placed second in the discus (121 feet, 6 inches), and shot (46 feet, 8 inches)

Huntington’s Daniel Seiffert was second in the 300 hurdles with a 1:03.34 clocking.

Huntington’s Solveig Bygstad won the girls triple jump with a leap of 32 feet, 8.5 inches. She was second in the long jump with a leap of 16 feet.

Baker boys win at Hines Middle School meet

BURNS — Baker ran away with the boys title Thursday at the annual Hines Middle School track and field meet.

The Dawgs amassed 203.66 points, outdistancing second-place Mount Vernon (90).

Baker finished second in the girls meet with 105.5 points, trailing only Hines (137).

Nate Baeth led the Baker boys with three individual titles. Baeth won the 800 (2:37.00), 200 hurdles (30.60) and long jump (17 feet, 10 inches).

Ben Baxter won the 200 (26.57), Travis Radle the 400 (1:10.01), Jake Brown the 100 hurdles (18.67), Brian Staebler-Siewell the discus (104 feet, 5 inches), Mason Cline the high jump (5 feet), and the Dawgs 4x400 relay (4:22.75). Relay members were Cline, Casey Brasher, Baxter and Eli Witham.

Bulldogs split matches with Ontario

Baker boys win, but girls lose to Tigers

ONTARIO — Baker split its boys and girls tennis matches with Ontario Thursday afternoon.

The Bulldogs won the boys match 4-1, but lost the girls match 5-0.

Baker’s Dan Sizer and Jordan Curtis won the first two boys singles matches in straight sets.

The Bulldogs then swept the boys doubles. Trenton Howard and Nathan Eiselein won the No. 1 doubles, and JJ Vela and Chance Parry the No. 2 doubles.

On the girls side, the closest Baker came to a win was the No. 2 singles where Helen Galiszewski lost in three sets.

Baker travels to Vale Tuesday before hosting La Grande next Thursday.

Bulldogs, La Grande split GOL doubleheader

Baker drops second game, the 2nd-ranked Bulldogs’ first loss of the season

Baker probably had its worst day of the season on the baseball diamond Friday. The Bulldogs didn’t look like the Class 4A second-ranked team at times while splitting a Greater Oregon League doubleheader with La Grande at the Baker Sports Complex.

Baker rallied in Game 1 to earn a 5-4 decision. But the Bulldogs’ luck ran out in the second game, a 9-4 La Grande win. The loss was Baker’s first in a dozen games this season.

“We just didn’t play Baker baseball, particularly in the second game,” Coach Dan Blankenship said.

“It was a great team effort in the first game. Our pitchers threw pretty well and we hit the ball pretty well late, got some clutch hits.

“Then in the second game, our pitchers didn’t pitch well, we didn’t hit the ball well. It wasn’t our day.

“The bottom line is we did not deserve to win the second game the way we swung the bats,” Blankenship said. “We didn’t swing with confidence.”

Baker, La Grande divide GOL twinbill

Baker and La Grande battled to a split in a Greater Oregon League softball doubleheader Friday afternoon at the Baker Sports Complex.

But the twinbill proved to be more costly to the Bulldogs than a single game.

Coach Al McCauley was ejected from Game 1 with two outs in the top of the seventh inning.

Baker won that game 7-3, but lost McCauley for the second game, and for the first game of Friday’s twinbill at Ontario.

“The way the rule reads I’ll have to sit out the first game at Ontario,” McCauley said Sunday. “The way the rule says there is the ejection day and a suspension day. And, I have to take a sportsmanship class in the next seven days.”

McCauley was tossed after disputing a call at second base. On the play a La Grande base runner went into the bag standing up, preventing Baker from completing an attempt at a double play.

Area track and field teams are busy

Baker-area high school track and field, softball and golf, and middle school track teams were busy during the weekend around Eastern Oregon.

Baker, PV track at La Grande

LA GRANDE — Baker track athletes earned one first, three seconds and a trio of thirds Friday at the La Grande Invitational at Eastern Oregon University in La Grande.

Jake Eastland won the boys javelin with a toss of 162 feet, 1 inch.

Runners-up were Whitney Phillips in the girls 400 (1:02.13), Kylee Curtis in the shot (32 feet, 7 inches), and Haley Adams in the pole vault (8 feet, 6 inches).

Eastland was third in the boys pole vault (11 feet), Mitko Smith in the 100 (11.81) and Weston Anderson in the discus (122 feet, 3 inches).

Powder Valley’s Ali Abrego was second in the girls high jump (4 feet, 10 inches), and Trenton Dixon third in the boys high jump (6 feet).

Both teams travel to Ontario Saturday for the annual Heinz Invitational.

Baker hits 5 homers in sweeping Weiser

Baker’s baseball record remains without a blemish, but the Bulldogs didn’t exactly play perfectly in sweeping a doubleheader from Weiser, Idaho, Tuesday at the Sports Complex.

They did come awfully close, though.

Five Baker pitchers combined to hold the Wolverines to a single hit in the 7-0, 13-0 sweep.

The quintet surrendered just two walks.

And the Baker defense committed only one error.

The Bulldog hitters, meanwhile, treated the ball rather more harshly than Weiser did.

Baker softball wins 12-0

Darryn McCauley and Mackenzie Srack’s teammates supplied a lot more runs than the pair of pitchers needed.

One run, as it turned out, would have been plenty.

And Baker’s Sierra Howerton got that run with a leadoff homer.

McCauley and Srack combined on a three-hitter, and the Bulldogs beat Weiser 12-0 in a non-league softball game Tuesday afternoon at the Baker Sports Complex.

Vale tennis teams prove too tough for Baker girls, boys

The Vale Vikings lived up to their reputation as one of the top tennis schools in the region by beating the Baker boys and girls Tuesday afternoon at the Ash Grove Complex.

Vale won the boys match 3-2.

The Vikings prevailed 4-1 in the girls match.

A heavy rain shower arrived about an hour before play was to begin, but coaches and players broomed water off the courts and the sun returned to dry the surface in time for the match to get started about on schedule, Baker Coach George Keister said.
