Bulldogs split GOL pair with Ontario

Baker and Ontario split a Greater Oregon League baseball doubleheader Friday at the Baker Sports Complex.

Baker won the first game 3-2 before losing the nightcap 12-7.

Baker left 16 runners on base in the two games.

“We’ve got to get the timely hit, and do a better job of picking up our baserunners,” said Baker coach Tim Smith.

In Game 1, Baker rallied from behind twice to earn the win.

Sam McCauley pitched a three-hitter, striking out 10.

In the second game, Ontario outhit the Bulldogs 15-8.

“They swung the bats pretty well,” Smith said of the Tigers.

“They swung the bats better than we did.”

McCauley led Baker’s offense with a home run and two RBIs.

Baker (3-3 in the GOL) travels to Homedale for a nonleague game Tuesday.

The Bulldogs then travel to Mac-Hi Saturday for a GOL twinbill. The Mac-Hi games were originally scheduled as Baker home games, but due to earlier weather conditions the games were switched.
