For the second time in as many starts, Dylan Baker of Juneau didn’t allow an earned run.

Last time bad luck spoiled his quality start.

This time he took care of matters himself.

Baker threw a one-hitter over six innings for the Class A Lake County Captains in a 6-1 victory over Bowling Green, earning his first professional win in 14 career starts.

The 20-year-old right-hander struck out four and extended his scoreless streak to 13.1 innings.

He hasn’t allowed an earned run since April 27.

Baker [1-2] lowered his ERA to 3.09 in 32 innings over six games. He has 30 strikeouts vs. six walks.
