GRANDVIEW – Visiting Othello used a big fourth inning to blow open game one and went on to a CWAC baseball twin bill sweep of the Grandview Greyhounds last Saturday.
In the opener, Othello plated nine runs in the fourth frame on the way to a 14-0 victory.
“We kept it close until they started hitting more in the gaps in the fourth,” said Grandview Coach Joe Mora.
The lone Greyhound hit in game one came off the bat of pitcher Anthony Mendoza.
Game two saw Othello grab control early with a seven-run rally in the second inning and six more in the third on the way to a 24-2 victory.
Both games ended after five innings due to a mercy rule.
Grandview went hitless in the nightcap, but coaxed its two runs thanks to some heads up small ball.
In the third frame, Matt Dailey drew a walk, stole second and third, then came home for the Greyhounds on a passed ball.
It was the same story in the fourth inning for Grandview’s Angel Prieto, with a walk and two stolen bases leading to a score on a Husky passed ball.
Angel Abarca and Brendan Bardwell shared pitching duties for Grandview in game two.
Grandview travels to play Ellensburg tomorrow, Tuesday, in a CWAC contest.
