Nuggets tie series up with Trail Blazers, 2 Games Apiece in NBA Semifinal Series

When two teams are as evenly matched as the Denver Nuggets and Portland Trail Blazers, just a few minutes of bad basketball can be the difference between taking a commanding lead in a series or losing momentum on your home court.

Unfortunately for the Trail Blazers Sunday afternoon, it as the latter rather than the former.

The Nuggets went on a 10-2 run to start the second half and eventually outscored the Trail Blazers 27-14 in the third quarter to turn what was a six-point halftime deficit into a seven-point fourth-quarter lead.

Portland would never reclaim the lead thereafter on the way to dropping Game 5 116-112 in front of a sellout crowd of 20,146 Sunday afternoon at the Moda Center.

Sunday’s loss was Portland’s first at home during the 2019 Playoffs.

The series is now tied at 2-2 with Game 5 to be played Tuesday night at the Pepsi Center in Denver.

The win also assures that the series will go to at least six games, with Game 6 scheduled for Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. at the Moda Center.

Mariners Roll Over Indians 10-0.

Mariners rookie Erik Swanson will never forget his first MLB win, both for what happened on the field and in the clubhouse.

The right-hander carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning Sunday, then was given a beer and condiment bath by his teammates following Seattle’s 10-0 victory over the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field.

Swanson (1-3, 4.94 ERA) held Cleveland hitless for 5 2/3 innings before Jose Ramirez delivered a sharp double to right field. He finished with a career-high 106 pitches over six innings, allowing a lone hit and three walks in his fifth big league outing.

By taking the finale of the three-game series, the Mariners avoided falling to .500 for the first time in 2019, prompting them to let off some steam in the clubhouse before boarding a flight to New York.

No.10 Oregon Tech (40-15) fell 8-2 to No.4 Southern Oregon (45-7) on Sunday in the CCC Tournament Championship game as the Raiders claim the 2019 Cascade Conference Softball Championships presented by U.S. Bank, capturing its third consecutive title.
The Owls earned the right to play SOU after its 3-2 win over College of Idaho to start the day. With the win over the Yotes, OIT clinched the Cascade Conference’s second automatic berth to the NAIA National Tournament Opening Round; the Owls will find out Tuesday where they will play May 13 – 15.
