But with their first attack on nine minutes, Bath opened the scoring when Josh Low's cross from the right was turned in by Tom Nicholls.
After Kington was just off-target with a free kick, Bath struck again on 12 minutes, Charlie Griffin heading in Low's corner kick.
Weston responded and McClaggon had a header beaten out, while Ross Stearn had a shot blocked on the line.
On 36 minutes, Weston were awarded a penalty when Jamie Price was brought down and Stearn scored his third goal in two games from the penalty spot.
Minutes later Mellor made a superb double save to first deny Stearn and then McClaggon from the rebound.

Low made the game safe for Bath on 70 minutes when he burst down the right, cut inside and easily beat home keeper Lloyd Irish. In stoppage time, substitute Mike Sttephenson added the fourth.
