Baker baseball team continues to struggle

Published: Friday, February 28, 2014 at 12:15 PM.

Morgan Hardee and Noah Simmons had the only Bulldog hits in the inning as Hardee, Haden Brown, who walked, and Newman, who reached on an error, scored.

Hicks faced Bates, who was safe at second on an infield hit and a Gator error, in the top of the seventh before seeing his night come to an end.

Jake Rainey replaced Hicks and face three batters. Rainey gave up a hit, a walk and struck out a batter. Bubba Ellis followed Rainey and gave up a single before being lifted for Weidenhammer.

Weidenhammer got the final two outs of the inning, but the Bulldogs managed to score twice in the seventh to grab a two run lead.

Baker managed a run in the bottom of the seventh, but it wasn't enough.

With one out, Lowery struck out, but was able to reach first when the ball got past Bulldog catcher Tyler Head. Lowery stole second base and scored on a Jonathan Gatewood hit, but that was all the offense the Gators could muster as Freeport held on for the win.
