The Huskies baseball team played their regularly scheduled game against St. Cloud Apollo first and won 9-4. Next up they hosted Mankato West to complete the game that was suspended by rain on Thursday. The Scarlets had put two on the board Thursday, and added 10 more Friday to get a 12-0, six-inning Big Nine Conference win. Right-handed senior Ryan Schlichte, who led the Mankato West football team to a state championship last fall, threw the complete game and struck out 11 Husky batters. Owatonna hosts Austin in a doubleheader Tuesday.
