Baker notches doubleheader sweep over Missouri Valley College

Chris Cummins

BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – The Baker Wildcats (7-9, 3-5 HAAC) recorded their second sweep of the season and halted its three-game losing streak with victories over Missouri Valley (5-11, 0-6 HAAC).

The Wildcats scored early and often in both games. Baker finally got the bats going after being in a drought the past three games. Baker jumped out to an early three-run lead in the first inning and never looked back. The Vikings helped the Wildcats with numerous bobbles and misplayed balls. In the third the Wildcats took advantage of the bases being loaded and scored four insurance runs on its way to a 9-0 shutout. Christopher Cummins (pictured) went the distance on the mound recording his first shutout of the season.

Baker Relays

BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – The weather seems to change constantly during this time of year in Kansas. The 2011 Baker Relays weren’t spared from the wrath as head coach Zach Kindler announced the Relays will now take place on Friday, March 25, 2011. They were originally planned to take place on Saturday, March 26th.

“Friday’s weather looks a little better in regards to the temperature which will put our student-athletes at less risk for injury,” said Baker athletic director Theresa Yetmar. “We’re working with our professors to make this a smooth transition for our student-athletes in regards to missing class time.”
