Lacy Churchfi eld then stepped to the service line and increased Baker’s lead to 11-3. The Bulldogs then kept the lead between 10 and 11 points the rest of the set. The second set was much closer, with neither team gaining more than a 3-point lead until the game was knot- ted at 20-20. Weiser then jumped ahead 23-20 before Baker rallied to tie the score again at 23-23 on the serves of Josie Lewis. Weiser then scored the fi nal two points to even the match.

Soto delivered a bas- es-loaded single against Milwaukee closer Josh Hader that scored three runs with two outs in the eighth inning, thanks in part to an er- ror by rookie outfi elder Trent Grisham, and the Nationals came back to beat the Brewers 4-3 in the NL wild-card game Tuesday night.

Churchfi eld served 18 consecutive points, and Emma Bates 10 in a row. “We found some weak- nesses in their defense,” Hurliman said. “There wasn’t a lot of rallying in the match. The girls came out and just decided to get ’er done pretty quick last night.” Baker plays host to Fruitland Thursday, with the varsity match starting around 7 p.m. — Jayson Jacoby contributed to this story.

Olshey pointed to the team’s newly acquired depth and recent playoff experience for his optimism. “This is the deepest, most talented, most experienced team we’ve had since we’ve been here. ... Clearly when Nurk gets back, it’s the big- gest team we’ve had. I like the fact we brought in guys like Pau with a champion- ship pedigree, who have been to where we’re trying to get to,” Olshey said. “And I think coming off the heels of last year’s run, it’s given these guys a springboard.
