Wilde leads Baker to softball win

Mitchem later came in to score on a Kaitlan Godwin single. The inning's final Gator run came as courtesy runner Kaitlyn Smith scored on an error off Godwin’s infield single. Smith was running for Baker catcher Jenna Stevenson, who had walked.

The four runs would have been more than enough for Baker, with Wilde twirling a gem in the circle — but the Gators weren’t done yet.

Wilde helped her cause with a leadoff single in the Baker fourth. Wilde scored on a Foster double as the Gators pushed the lead to 5-0.

Holmes County finally touched Wilde for a pair of runs in the top of the sixth inning to make it 5-2. But Baker answered with three runs in the bottom of the inning, pushing the lead to the final score of 8-2.

Courtney Ellis was hit by a pitch to lead off the sixth for Baker. Back-to-back walks to Wilde and Foster loaded the bases for the Gators.

Ellis scored on a sacrifice fly by Stanley. Wilde and Foster came home on wild pitches.
