BHS tennis teams succeed at TVCC tourney

Baker tennis players had a successful weekend at the Treasure Valley Community College tournament in Ontario.

The Baker girls placed in every event, and the boys in three events.

“The boys did pretty well against some good competition,” said Baker coach George Keister.

“It was a long weekend, but the girls played pretty well,” added assistant coach Jody Averett.

Tournament divisions were divided into No. 1 players, No. 2 players, and No. 3 players both in singles and doubles.


BHS softball team splits at Mac-Hi

Baker opened Greater Oregon League softball Friday with a split at Mac-Hi.

Mac-Hi won the opener 3-2, but Baker bounced back to take the second game 7-2.

“We played a little tight in the first game, and tried to force some things,” said Baker coach Al McCauley.

Baker actually led 2-0 after two innings in the opener.

Tori Brown opened the second inning with a solo home run. Laura Wilson then reached base on an error. Jessi Stephens followed with a single and both runners advanced on a sacrifice bunt by Mackenzie Srack. Wilson scored Baker’s second run on a ground out by Becca Joseph.


BHS scores 35 runs in Mac-High doubleheader

Baker pummeled Mac-Hi pitching for 35 runs and 28 hits Friday while sweeping a Greater Oregon League baseball doubleheader 24-4 and 11-1 at Milton-Freewater.

“The kids hit the ball well,” said Baker coach Dan Blankenship.

“Our pitchers threw well; threw a lot of strikes, and we played solid defense. Give the kids credit, we went on the road and picked up a couple of good wins.”

Ty Everson, Stephen Talbot and Derek Blankenship led Baker’s offense.


Baker, Weiser battle elements

As the saying goes, “It’s not nice to mess with Mother Nature.”

Baker and Weiser found that out Tuesday as they attempted to play their boys and girls tennis matches at the Ash Grove Complex.

The matches were scheduled to begin at 3 p.m. But Weiser’s bus broke down about eight miles outside of Baker City.

“Mike Sullivan (Baker athletic director) sent one of our buses out to pick them up,” said Baker coach George Keister.

“Then, when they got here it started raining.”


Bulldogs slug four homers in romp past Prospectors

Baker uses the long balls to run its record to 6-0

Baker uncorked the long ball Tuesday afternoon to roll over Grant Union 14-1 in a five-inning non-league baseball game at the Baker Sports Complex.

The Bulldogs hammered a dozen hits, including four home runs. All four homers came in a nine-run fourth inning.

“Nine runs on nine hits. That was a pretty good inning,” said Baker coach Dan Blankenship.

“Once we got going, we really hit some balls hard. One through nine we were putting the ball in play,” Blankenship said.

In the fourth inning, Coleman Lay led off with a double. He scored the first run on a Will Barr single. Barr was thrown out at second trying to stretch the hit into a double.

Justin Durflinger then lined a solo homer to left field. Then, after Ty Everson walked, Stephen Talbot slapped a two-run homer to right-center field.


Baker softball sweeps Grant Union at Complex

Baker combined stingy pitching and solid hitting to sweep a non-league softball doubleheader from Grant Union Tuesday.

Tori Brown threw a one-hitter in an 8-1 victory in Game 1. Mackenzie Srack and Darryn McCauley combined on a one-hitter in the 15-0 second game.

“Giving up just two hits a doubleheader. I’ll take that,” said Baker coach Al McCauley.

“Tori had a no-hitter going until the next to the last batter. The girls made some great defensive plays behind her to keep it that way.”

Baker had 19 hits in the twinbill, 11 for extra bases.

“The girls are swinging the bats well right now,” McCauley said. “We’ve been getting some good production throughout the lineup. I’ve been particularly happy with the bottom of the lineup.

“And we played real solid defense,” the Baker coach added.


Bulldog netters split match against Ontario

Baker split a tennis match with Ontario Tuesday at the Ash Grove Complex.

Baker won the boys half of the match 4-1, but dropped the girls match 3-2.

Weather conditions, which included wind, rain, snow and hail, made playing conditions less than ideal.

“Just before we were going to start it started snowing and blowing,” said Baker coach George Keister.

“Ontario was just showing up, and they didn’t think we’d play, but we got it in.”

Dan Sizer and Jordan Curtis won the first two boys singles for the Bulldogs.

Sizer won the No. 1 singles in straight sets, and Curtis followed suit in the No. 2 singles match.

Baker then swept the boys doubles.

Baker split a girls junior varsity softball doubleheader with Grant Union Tuesday at the Baker Sports Complex.

Baker won the first game 39-1, but lost the second game 36-25.

Sierra Howerton threw the first four innings in Game 1 to gain the win. Howerton allowed one hit and struck out four. Sarah Shankle pitched the fifth inning, allowing one run.

Howerton led Baker’s offense with four hits, including a double.
