Nuggets take Game 5 over Trail Blazers, Nuggets lead series 3-2

This time of year, players, coaches and fans alike are fond of trotting out the old “win or go home” sports adage.

For the Trail Blazers, it’s now a case of win or stay home.

Portland shot just 38 percent from the field, 29 percent from three and a perplexing 53 percent from the free throw line in a wire-to-wire, 124-98 loss to the Denver Nuggets in Game 5 of the Western Conference Semifinals Tuesday night at the Pepsi Center.

The Nuggets now lead the series 3-2 and the Trail Blazers are now a loss away from elimination with the series heading back to Portland for Game 6 Thursday night at the Moda Center.

Marco Gonzales bounced back from the shortest start of his career with six strong innings of one-run ball, but the Yankees spoiled that effort by scoring three times in the ninth to hand the Mariners a 5-4 walk-off loss on Tuesday night as Seattle’s bullpen struggles continued in the Bronx.

Gio Urshela’s two-run homer off Anthony Swarzak tied the game with one out in the ninth, and DJ LeMahieu singled in the game-winner off Roenis Elias one out later.

Seattle’s starters have a 4.25 ERA on the season, which ranks smack in the middle of MLB’s 30 teams. But a 4.90 ERA for the bullpen is 25th, and the eight blown saves are tied for last.

The two teams meet again this afternoon at Yankee Stadium.

Oregon Tech earned the Cascade Conference’s second auto qualifier on Sunday to the NAIA Opening Round and found out today that they will head to Marion, Indiana and play in the Marion Bracket hosted by Indiana Wesleyan University at Wildcat Field.

The Owls will be the No. 1 seed and will open up play on Monday, May 13 against Siena Heights (Mich.) at 10:30 AM (Pacific).

Out of the Crossroads League, the host school Indiana Wesleyan University (42-13-1) is the No.2 seed and was ranked at No.13 in the final NAIA Top 25 Coaches Poll. Oregon Tech (40-15) is the No.1 seed in the Bracket as the Owls stayed at the No.10 spot in this week’s Coaches’ Poll. 

The rest of the bracket consists of No. 3 seeded Central Baptist (Ark.) (33-13) out of the American Midwest Conference and the No.4 seed Siena Heights (Mich.) (36-17) from the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference. Both Central Baptist and Siena Heights ended the regular season in the receiving votes category in the Top 25 poll.

The Skyline Conference baseball race heats up with number one Henley meeting second-place Hidden Valley three times this week. 

Henley enters the series with an 11-1 record in league, while Hidden is 10-2. 

Mazama meets North Valley this week, with the Vikings and Phoenix tied for the third spot in conference at 6-6. 

Phoenix meets 3-9 Klamath Union in three games this week.
