BAKER — With less than a month left before the District 3-1A tournament the Baker School baseball team continues to play an inconsistent brand of ball that leaves Coach Adam Henry scratching his head.

Another inconsistent game against South Walton on Monday proved costly as the Seahawks took a 7-5 win.

"We were still on spring break the first part of the game," Henry said. "We gave up three unearned runs tonight and they came back and to bite us in the butt.

"We finally woke up about the sixth inning and that's promising. But if we start out hot it's a lot better ball game. We have to come out on fire because when we do we play well."

The Seahawks took a 1-0 lead in the top of the third when Nick Glover drew a leadoff walk from Baker starting pitcher Alan Weidenhammer. Weidenhammer retired the next two batters and it looked as if the Gators would keep South Walton off the scoreboard. But a two-out double by Zach Vance scored Glover and Baker would play catch up the rest of the game.

The Gators (5-11-1) tied the game in the bottom of the third.

Mason Lowery and Cody Barnhill each drew a two-out walk from Seahawk pitcher Tuck Stafford. Kyle Davis made Stafford pay for the walks with a base hit up the middle to score Lowery.
