Bells starting pitcher Nick Baker tossed a one-run complete game to lead Bellingham to a 2-1 West Coast League win against Corvallis Wednesday, July 17, at Joe Martin Field.
Baker, a Cal State Chico University product, only gave up five hits, struck out three and walked two. He lowered his ERA to an even 1.00.
Ryan Yamane drove in Jack Meggs with an RBI single in the bottom of the third to give Bellingham a 1-0 lead. Corvallis scored its only run during the top of the fifth, but Yamane led off the bottom of the sixth with a double before coming around to score on a wild pitch.
Bellingham has a day off Thursday, July 18, before starting a nine-game road trip with a three-game set against Walla Walla starting at 7:05 p.m. Friday, July 19.
