Hard-luck outing for Bass, says Baker
NEW YORK -- It was sort of a helpless feeling for Padres catcher John Baker on Friday, watching as pitcher Anthony Bass struggled to get outs in a 6-1 loss to the Mets.

While Bass allowed six earned runs in 5 1/3 innings, he did so with what he considered his best stuff of the season. Baker concurred.

"His slider was good, his changeup was good, but it was like every pitch that he threw over the plate, they hit," Baker said. "There's nothing you can really do."

Baker cited a fastball that Bass threw down and away to Mike Baxter, who sent it the other way for a run-scoring double. Baker also thought Bass made a good pitch on a slider in the bottom of the strike zone to Ike Davis, who went down and drove it up the middle for a two-run single.

"I guess you just have to tip your cap to the Mets," Baker said.
