Blazers win! For as good as the Trail Blazers have been as of late, they’ll likely need a bit of help if they’re to move up in the Western Conference playoff table.
Wednesday night, they got some much needed assistance. They also held up their end of the bargain.
In the second game of their last homestand of the season, the Trail Blazers came away with a 126-118 victory in front of a sellout crowd of 19,803 Wednesday night at the Moda Center. What’s more, one of the teams they trail and three teams that are right on their heels in the Western Conference standings all lost.
The Trail Blazers are now 44-27 overall, 27-9 at home and have won seven of their last 10 and 12 of their last 15. With the win, the Trail Blazers and Mavericks finish their season series tied 2-2.
While his boyhood hero was retiring from baseball, new Mariners southpaw Yusei Kikuchimerely went about retiring batters in an impressive Major League debut in Seattle’s 5-4, 12-inning victory over the A’s on Thursday as they swept the two-game Opening Series.
Ichiro Suzuki will get the headlines, but Kikuchi served notice of his own potential as the two Japanese stars, one departing and one just starting, made the Tokyo Dome their stage for the series finale and provided fitting drama for the sellout crowd in their homeland.
When Ichiro was taken out of the game in the bottom of the eighth to wild cheers from 46,451 fans, Kikuchi’s tears streaming down his face in the Mariners’ dugout spoke silent volumes.
Suzuki’s career started with a 5-4 win over the Oakland A’s for Seattle in 2002.
His last game Thursday? A 5-4 win over the Oakland A’s. He is a future Hall Of Fame player.
Henley’s baseball team is back on the field this afternoon against Cascade Christian. The Hornets are 2-1 on the young season. The game begins at 5pm at Rosser Field at Henley High.
