Baker overcame its own mistakes Saturday to edge Emmett, Idaho, 8-6 in a nonleague baseball game at Emmett.
Three Baker errors helped Emmett stay close.
"We did some good things, but we had three errors in the field that cost us four runs by extending some innings," said Baker coach Tim Smith.
Taylor Gulick pitched a complete-game win for the Bulldogs. Gulick struck out eight and walked three while allowing just two earned runs.
"Taylor threw well," Smith said.
Baker scored three times in the top of the first inning only to give up four in the bottom of the inning.
Baker added five runs in the third inning to make the difference.
Stephen Schott led Baker's offense with three singles and a double.
Gulick added two hits.
Baker also won the junior varsity game 30-3.
TJ Dunn was the winning pitcher.
Baker (4-2) hosts Nyssa in a single game Tuesday at the Baker Sports Complex.
