TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — The Twin Falls Cowboys used a complete game on the mound from Otho Savage and a six-run fourth inning to beat Coeur d’Alene Sunday.

Twin Falls lead the entire way in Sunday afternoon’s elimination game, advancing to the final day of the AA American Legion baseball state tournament.

The bats were working for the Cowboys, and pitcher Otho Savage didn’t let the outing go to waste.

“I felt my curveball was working, even though I didn’t throw it a whole lot,” Savage said. “I just felt like I was getting them with the off-speed, the fastball I was just throwing right down the middle, but it was working.”
