TRAIL BLAZERS TAKE COMMANDING LEAD OVER THUNDER
It’s officially an NBA series.
The Portland Trail Blazers won their first road playoff game in three years and took a commanding lead in their first-round playoff series versus the Thunder with a 111-98 victory in Game Four in front of a sellout crowd of 18,203 at Chesapeake Energy Arena Sunday night in Oklahoma City.
The Blazers won all four quarters Sunday night, though they struggled from the field in the first half, shooting just 39 percent from the field. Were it not for the shooting of Al-Farouq Aminu, who put up 11 points on 4-of-5 shooting in the first half, Portland’s night might have ended much differently.
With four games in the books, the remaining games now alternate between Portland and Oklahoma City for the rest of the series, with Game Four taking place Tuesday, April 23 (tomorrow night) at the Moda Center.
A note to Seattle Mariners fans: Don’t change the channel until the final out on this club.
In the Year of the Long Ball, the Mariners clearly are going to be riding a roller coaster in 2019, as evidenced Sunday when the Angels flipped the early script by launching four home runs of their own and then held off Seattle’s furious ninth-inning rally for an 8-6 victory at Angel Stadium.
The Mariners missed a chance at a four-game series sweep, as their bats stayed silent for most of the sunny afternoon until scoring five times in the ninth on homers by Tom Murphy, Dee Gordon and Mitch Haniger.
The Mariners are 11-2 on the road this year — tied for the best road start in franchise history — and have hit 37 home runs with 103 runs in those 13 games.
It’s an off day for the Mariners. They play in San Diego tomorrow.
On the road, the Oregon Tech Men’s baseball team split with University of British Columbia in Vancouver. OIT is now 12-34 on the season.
In college softball, a pair of walk-offs lead No.12 Oregon Tech to a doubleheader sweep of College of Idaho 10-0 and 8-7 Saturday on Senior Day.
