Seattle Mariners drop another one to Cleveland Indians, Home Run Record Ends. 

Erik Swanson was good. Carlos Carrasco was better. And so it went for the Mariners on Wednesday, as they saw their losing streak reach six games with a 1-0 setback to the Indians to close out a lost homestand.

Swanson dazzled in his Major League starting debut with six innings of one-run ball, allowing just two hits. But that wasn’t enough to stop Seattle’s skid as the Mariners suffered their first shutout of the season and the first 1-0 loss at home since June 5, 2015, against the Rays.

The Mariners saw their Major League-record streak of 20 games with a homer to start the season snapped, as Carlos Carrasco and reliever Nick Wittgren held them to three hits with 14 strikeouts in continuing a troublesome trend for Seattle’s offense.

It’s off to Anaheim for a four-game series with the Angels for Seattle beginning tonight.

The Henley Hornets continued its dominance on the local baseball diamond yesterday with a 17-0 win over North Valley to improve to 4-0 in the Skyline Conference. 

The Mazama Vikings picked up a key 5-3 win over Phoenix to hand the Pirates their first conference loss on the road, and

Klamath Union was shellacked by Hidden Valley 19-3 at Kiger Stadium yesterday in other baseball action.

In softball, Henley rolled to a 12-2 win against North Valley to also remain undefeated in conference, while Mazama held serve to pick up their fourth straight conference win, a 13-8 winner over Phoenix.

A former Klamath Union golfer is making a big impact in his freshman year at the University of Oregon.

Oregon’s trio of freshmen all finished in the top 30 as the Ducks wrapped up play in the Western Intercollegiate at 15 over and tied for sixth, in an event that ended yesterday in Santa Clara.
 
Yin Ho Yue was the highest finisher for the Ducks, coming in 14th at even par for the week. Tom Gueant shot a career-best 1-under 69 in the final round to finish tied for 26th and former Pelican Craig Ronne turned in a tied for 17th finish at 2 over.

The Ducks host the Pac-12 Golf Championship next Monday, April 22 -April 24th at Eugene Country Club. Admission is free and open to the public.
