Ida Baker absorbed another hard-luck defeat Tuesday night at Naples when two errors in the bottom of the seventh inning cleared the way for the Eagles to claim a 2-1 victory.
A run-scoring fielder's choice by Cameron Farmer in the fifth inning tied the game at 1-1 as the Bulldogs outhit the Eagles 7-2 overall. Trevor Moore had two hits with Gabe Villaverde and Gianni Williams-Lindmeyer each contributing a double for the Bulldogs.
An errant throw on Naples' leadoff batter put the potential winning run on the bases. The runner wound up on second base and a sacrifice bunt with no one out produced the winning run when the throw sailed down the foul line.
Baker (2-10) plays at Cypress Lake next Tuesday.
