Mariners grab another great win.
Seattle has proven they can win shootouts this season, slugging their way to a surprising early lead in the American League West. But pitching duels?
Turns out that worked just fine as well on Tuesday as Marco Gonzales held the Angels to one run over 8 1/3 innings, while Daniel Vogelbach ripped a go-ahead homer in the bottom of the eighth as Seattle pulled out a 2-1 win at T-Mobile Park.
With a remade roster that no longer features the familiar faces of Robinson Cano, Nelson Cruz, James Paxton, Jean Segura and Edwin Diaz, the Mariners are off to the best start in franchise history at 7-1 after sweeping the two-game set with the Angels.
Oregon returned from its two-week break with its sixth football practice of the spring on Tuesday. The Ducks were in shells (helmet and shoulder pads) inside the Moshofsky Center as they build up to Saturday’s open practice at Hillsboro Stadium.
Despite being in just shells, Tuesday’s practice had an intensity and competitiveness that head coach Mario Cristobal was happy with coming off the break for finals and spring break.
“We wanted make sure that our guys understood that going away on spring break was an opportunity to take a break, see your family, spend some quality time with your loved ones, but at the same time to stay in great shape because when we come back it’s full tilt and that’s what we had today.
Overall, just a tremendous amount of energy and they came back ready to practice.”
Cristobal announced on Tuesday that former Penn State wide receiver Juwan Johnson has joined the program and is expected to be on the field for the next practice on Thursday.
The epicenter of Oregon horse racing could move to Grants Pass as Portland Meadows heads toward a future as a massive distribution center.
It appears increasingly unlikely the North Portland race track will see another season. It hasn’t been sold, but a sale is pending, and plans filed with the city last year call for its redevelopment.
The Oregon Racing Commission approved a three-year license for Grants Pass Downs last week without hearing a word of objection from Portland Meadows’ owners, said Jack McGrail, the commission’s executive director.
