Huskies baseball capped their week with a double header sweep of Mankato East 5-1 and 3-2 Friday at Siebert Field at the University of Minnesota.

Jacob Gauthier and Matt Bothun handled the starting duties for Owatonna (5-2). Kodey Kiel and Brock Hanson closed out the games. The Huskies are on a four-game winning streak after playing five games in five days in four cities. A loss to top-five ranked Minnetonka started off the week.
