GRISWOLD — Bowen Baker struck out 14 and pitched a three-hitter as Wheeler High shut out Griswold, 6-0, in an ECC Division IV baseball game Wednesday.
Baker did not walk a batter as he moved to 3-0. Baker has 59 strikeouts in 27 innings with an ERA of 0.52.
"First time through the lineup he was overpowering," Wheeler coach Eric Collins said. "Then he was able to mix in his curveball."
Matt Pierce was 2 for 3 with a pair of RBIs. Baker, Justin Veal and Lukas Jones contributed two hits each. Cameron Reyes, Aidan Cameron and Veal also drove in runs.
Griswold dropped to 5-6, 3-1 ECC Division IV.
