QUINCY — The Huskies chased the Jacks off the diamond with a sweep of their twin bill in Quincy Saturday. Othello dominated both games of the twin bill and moved to 4-0 in CWAC Conference play and 5-1 0verall.
“The team is playing well right now as a unit,” coach Sonny Garza said. “We have no true standout player on the roster. The guys are all working daily and competing daily to complete their role and just having fun playing baseball.”
The Huskies Jonathan Garza gave up a solo shot to center off the bat of Quincy’s Noah Tarango in the bottom of the second, and then exploded for seven runs playing small ball in the top of the third. The Jacks got three back in the home half of the frame. Othello blew the game open posting another seven runs over the next four innings. Cameron Valdez wielded the big stick for the Huskies going 2-for-3 at the dish with 4 RBI.
Josh Calzadillas got the start and the win in Game 2, tossing five strong innings, giving up just three hits and one run while striking out five Jacks. Othello out hit Quincy 12 to 3 in the game that was shortened by the 10-run rile.
Othello was back on the diamond Tuesday in Yakima for a single game with the Red Devils, but the result of the contest were not available at press time.
