Blazers over Nuggets on Sunday.
Despite resting three of their starters, the Denver Nuggets gave the Portland Trail Blazers all they could handle in the second game of a Northwest Division, home-and-home series.
Eventually, Portland managed to get it handled.
The Trail Blazers outscored the Nuggets 17-3 in the final 3:55 of regulation to come away with a 115-108 victory in front of a sellout crowd of 19,890 Sunday night at the Moda Center.
Portland is now 51-29 overall and 31-9 at home this season. The Trail Blazers have now won their last seven games at the Moda Center and are 9-2 in their last 11 overall. The win also snaps a six-game losing streak to the Nuggets, though Denver had already secured the season series thanks to winning the first three meetings.
Seattle Mariners’ Daniel Vogelbach hit two home runs on Sunday, but there’s no guarantee he’ll be in the lineup on Monday. After all, he replaced Jay Bruce for Sunday’s 12-5 win over the White Sox, a day after Bruce homered twice.
Simply put, there are not enough slots in the lineup for all the scorching bats on the Mariners’ roster right now, particularly at first base and designated hitter, where manager Scott Servais can only fit two from the trio of Vogelbach, Bruce and Edwin Encarnacion.
Vogelbach hit two home runs and had a career-high six RBIs, and Encarnacion homered and added four RBIs, powering the first-place Mariners to their ninth victory in 11 games.
The Mariners have homered in all 11 games this season — extending their franchise record — and their total of 27 for the season leads the Majors.
Felix Hernandez celebrates his birthday tonight as the starter for Seattle in Kansas City, the first in a four-game series.
After sweeping Corban University (11-23-1, 9-12 NAIA-W) in Saturday’s doubleheader to kick off a “Weekend for Faith”, Oregon Tech was swept themselves on Sunday in NAIA-West play at Kiger Stadium to split the weekend, losing 9-3 in game one and a close 13-10 in game two.
All proceeds from the games this weekend will be donated to Faith Seta and her brave battle against neuroblastoma, an aggressive form of cancer. It was Faith’s 5th birthday today, and she and her family were on hand to throw out the first pitch. 100% of gate proceeds, along with all donations are being donated to her treatments and both teams wore gold shoelaces as part of the Lace Up 4 Pediatric Cancer. “Nothing can take away from how great the weekend was for Faith and the opportunity we had to be part of her 5th birthday,” said Head Coach Matt Miles.
