Padres down Mariners in San Diego.

King Felix polished up the crown nicely Wednesday afternoon at Petco Park. Unfortunately for him, there was a Prince Paddack eager to claim a throne for himself.

Mariners stalwart Felix Hernandez had his best outing of 2019, keeping the Padres off-balance with a mix of 89-mph fastballs that darted around, curves that dropped into the strike zone, sliders that dove away from the bats of right-handed hitters and changeups that produced weak contact.

Seven innings of three-hit baseball did not put Hernandez in the win column, however. Padres rookie starter Chris Paddack was more than equal to the task with seven innings of one-hit ball, and the Padres prevailed 1-0 in the pitchers’ duel.

A four game set against Texas at home begins tonight.

Right-hander Mike Wright is out of Minor League options. He has been inconsistent, at best. He had run out of chances with his original organization.

No wonder Wright caught the eye of the Mariners.

“We are the team of opportunities,” manager Scott Servais said Wednesday after the Mariners acquired Wright from the Orioles for Minor League infielder Ryne Ogren, ahead of the game. 

When Wright reports to Seattle and joins the active roster, it will have some interesting roster decisions. The 40-man roster is full, and Chasen Bradford, who came off the injured list on Tuesday, is the only active reliever with Minor League options available.

Mazama shut out Klamath Union in high school baseball at Kiger Stadium last night, 13-0 in 5 innings,  while Henley remained undefeated in Skyline play with a 7-1 win over Phoenix.  

In softball, Mazama routed KU 28-7 while Henley posted an 11-2 win over Phoenix to remain unbeaten in conference action,

Fans throughout Portland, Oregon and beyond have been celebrating Damian Lillard’s game-winning 37-foot three-pointer that took down the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night and catapulted the Portland Trail Blazers into the second round of the NBA playoffs.

Lillard fired the shot over the Thunder’s Paul George from near halfcourt, and it fell through the net as the final buzzer sounded to give the Blazers a 118-115 win and a 4-1 series victory.

Lillard finished the game with 50 points in what is being called the greatest individual performance in Blazers postseason history.

Portland mayor Ted Wheeler unofficially named Lillard the King Of Rip City in a Twitter post yesterday.
