Scappoose sweeps Bulldogs

Baker’s baseball team is a work in progress. The Bulldogs are still learning how to do many things the right way.

That learning process continued Tuesday when the Bulldogs hosted Scappoose in a nonleague doubleheader at the Baker Sports Complex.

When the twinbill had ended Scappoose left town with a 7-1, 5-0 sweep of the Bulldogs. The swepp extended Baker’s current losing streak to three games. Baker is 1-3 this season.

“Obviously, we still have some things to learn,” said Baker coach Dan Blankenship.

“We’re a young team, and we’re going to get better.”

Against Scappoose, the Bulldogs managed just four hits, two in each game.

“Early on this season we’re not hitting the ball like we should,” Blankenship said.

“A lot of the kids are pressing, trying too hard right now.”

In Game 1, Scappoose took a 2-0 lead in the second inning on two Baker errors and an RBI single from Paul Revis.

The Indians increased their lead to 6-0 in the top of the fourth inning. Revis again had the big hit, a two-run double. Two more runs scored on another Baker error.

Baker got its lone run in the bottom of the fourth. Sam Averett opened the inning by getting hit by a pitch. Averett then stole second. Two outs later he scored on a Scappoose error.

Jake Grammon and Masosn Cline had Baker’s hits. Averett took the loss on the mound.

In the second game, Scappoose took a 3-0 lead in the third inning.

Two runs scored on a home run by catcher Nathan Kranyak. The other run scored on a sacrifice fly by Hunter Hoyt.

Scappoose added single runs in the fourth and sixth innings.

Darren Dolby had both of Baker’s hits, singles in the third and fifth.

Baker got just one runner as far as third base in the game. Colin Hessel was hit by a pitch in the third inning and advanced to second on Dolby’s single. Hessel then reached third on a passed ball.

Nate Baeth took the loss on the mound.

Baker returns to nonleague action Friday when the Bulldogs host Sweet Home in another doubleheader beginning at noon.
