Les Girondins had Eduardo Costa and Savio sent-off but a late Jean-Claude Darcheville penalty was enough to keep them hot on the heels of the rest of the title chasing pack.
Baup praised the fighting spirit of his team, saying: "It is the right reward for our courage. Solidarity allowed us to counter the several negatives that came from the game - the red cards, the penalties disallowed and the injury to Ulrich Rame.
"The referee made a bad call sending Savio off but it made us stronger as we all pulled together.
"We came here to win so I am a little disappointed but given the circumstances, the draw is extraordinary.
"The important thing is that we didn't lose and kept up with the rest of the teams around us."
After his heroics in goal in which he saved a penalty, Rame was replaced by Frederic Roux after he picked up a calf injury which makes him a doubt for the game against Nantes.
