Baker opened Greater Oregon League baseball play Saturday by sweeping a doubleheader at Ontario 10-4 and 8-3.

Caleb Custer and Taylor Gulick each threw a complete-game win in their half of the twinbill.

"Caleb threw real well. He had a dominating performance," said Baker coach Tim Smith.

"And, Taylor also had a great outing. He threw well, keeping the ball down in the zone."

Baker managed 22 hits, including nine doubles, and committed just three errors.

"I think that was our best two-game outing overall baseball-wise this season," Smith said.

Austin Folkman led Baker's offense in the first game with two hits, including a double, and three RBIs.

Gulick, Stephen Schott and Keaton Bachman each added two hits. Custer added a pair of RBIs.

In Game 2, Custer led the way with three hits, including a double, and two RBIs.

Chace Dixon also had two runs batted in.

Baker also won both JV games, wining by 10-run rule in both games.

Baker hosts Burns in a single nonleague game Tuesday at 2 p.m. at the Baker Sports Complex.
