Baker becomes tenth Alaskan to notch 10 professional wins

August 16, 2014

dylan_baker_baseball_sm1Juneau right-hander Dylan Baker has moved into elite company among Alaska’s best professional pitchers by picking his 10th career win.

It may not seem like a lot, but only 10 Alaskans have accomplished double-figure winning decisions in minor league baseball.

We’ve never had anybody win a game in the major leagues among the three pitchers that made it.

Baker improved to 3-2 on the season after the Carolina Mudcats beat Myrtle Beach 6-5 in Class A Advanced action. He didn’t have his best stuff but still got the win, scattering five hits and three walks across 5.1 innings.

Baker is now 10-9 with a 3.86 ERA in 42 career starts in the minors.

All-time wins by Alaska pitchers at pro ranks:
62 – Marshall Boze, Soldonta
32 – Joey Newby, Soldotna
30 – Chris Mabeus, Soldotna
30 – Matt Way, Sitka
27 – Ryan Shaver, Fairbanks
19 – Corey Madden, Anchorage
12 – Dustin Krug, Kodiak
12 – Conor Spink, Eagle River
11 – Chad Bentz, Juneau
10 – Dylan Baker, Juneau
