GRANDVIEW — The Huskies overpowered the Greyhounds in Grandview Saturday, taking both games of a road doubleheader to move to 6-1 in CWAC Conference action and 7-2 overall on the season.
Jose Calzadillas pitched a complete game shutout in Othello’s 4-0 win in the opener. The Huskies went up top 1-0 in the top of the second inning on a Valente Garza one out RBI line drive single to center. Othello added three in the top of the seventh on RBIs from Valente Garza, AJ Pruneda and Jaxon Rocha.
Othello blew out Grandview 12-1 in the nightcap. AJ Pruneda wielded the big stick for the Huskies going 4-for-4 at the dish and 5 RBI, including a grand slam in the top of the second. Pruneda was also the winning pitcher of record going 5 innings on the bump, giving up 1 run off 4 hits while fanning 5 Greyhounds.
Othello, now in a three-way tie for second in the standing with Selah and Ellensburg, hits the pavement Saturday for a twin bill with the Bulldogs. First pitch is slated for 11 a.m.
