Baggio led out his side alongside opposing captain and former Italian international team-mate Giuseppe Signori and was given a standing ovation by Bologna fans on reaching his landmark last week, remembering he had his most prolific season in Serie A while with them when he scored 22 goals in the 1997/98 campaign.
Bologna started the better of the two when Signori waited an age for the ball to drop and let fly with a lethal volley that Luca Castellazzi tipped round the post with two minutes on the clock.
Former Bologna player Matteo Brighi almost scored a scorcher from 30 yards out and substitute Igli Tare almost made an immediate impact with a header on the half hour mark.
Baggio nearly scored his 201st goal when Brighi played him through but the veteran forward failed to bring the pass under control and Gianluca Pagliuca was able to gather the ball.
Tare's height was proving a problem for the Brescia backline and he gave his side the lead with a superb header five minutes from half time after replacing the injured Andrea Sussi earlier in the game.
Baggio nearly caught Pagliuca off his line at the start of the second half but his former Italian team-mate recovered well to tip over the bar.
It was not to be Baggio's day as Carlo Nervo made it two with 20 minutes remaining and Signori added a third on 80 minutes to kill off Brescia, although Fabio Pecchia did sour the win by receiving his marching orders right at the death for a second bookable offence.
Internazionale finally got back to winning ways with a 2-0 win away from home over basement club Ancona.
Uruguayan forward Alvaro Recoba broke the deadlock just past the hour mark and Italian international Daniele Adani made the game safe with a strike 20 minutes from time.
Sampdoria's chances of securing a Uefa Cup place took a blow as Empoli equalised in the last minute to claim a 1-1 draw at Stadio Carlo Castellani.
An own goal from home defender Manuel Belleri on 18 minutes looked to have given Samp all three points but Tomasso Rocchi scored right at the death to spoil the party.
Reggina pulled themselves further away from relegation trouble with a win over fellow strugglers Modena.
Reggina had to hang on for a result after Emiliano Bonazzoli and David Di Michele gave them a two-goal lead but Diamansy Kamara's penalty made for an uncomfortable second half for the visitors.
Perugia moved up to third from bottom thanks to a 2-1 win away to Lecce at Stadio Via Del Mare.
Franco Brienza put Perugia into a 13th minute lead and Marco Di Loreto doubled the advantage on the hour.
Wilfried Dalmat pulled a goal back for Lecce five minutes from full time but it was not enough to inspire a comeback.
Siena had Nicola Ventola to thank for gaining a point against Chievo. Ventola scored in the 86th minute to cancel out Lorenzo D'Anna's 69th minute penalty and earn his side a point that keeps them in 12th place with the Flying Donkeys remaining in the top half of Serie A in ninth.
