A string of early penalties allowed George Ford to quickly open up a nine-point lead, before a try from Anthony Perenise extended the margin for the visitors.
Two kicks from Paul Warwick either side of half time gave the hosts some hope, but Horacio Agulla managed to find the try line to add Bath's second of the match.
The Warriors fought hard as they looked to get back into the tie late on, but they finished a man short after Chris Jones was sent to the sin bin was eight minutes left to play.
Worcester defended well to prevent Bath from increasing their score in the final minutes of the match despite being down to 14 men, but they remain without a win this season.
