Mariners Slam Astros 14-1

Maybe all Scott Servais needed to do was scramble his defense to generate a little offense.

After shuffling center fielder Mallex Smith to left field and flip-flopping Domingo Santana to right for the first time this season in an effort to bolster the defense, the two wound up providing much of the key offensive punch in the Mariners’ 14-1 win over the Astros on Wednesday as Seattle snapped a four-game losing streak in a big way.

It was a welcome laugher for a Seattle squad that had gone 7-23 since May 1, while Houston was rolling up a 23-7 record. 

The fourth game of the series is this afternoon in a matinee matchup.

Kaila Mick of Henley is the Oregon Class 4A softball player of the year.  She’s joined on the first team by pitcher Lilly Poe and Paige Barnett, senior outfielder.  Hayden Rasica was named to the first team all-state as an infielder.

The 2019 Klamath Falls Falcon American Legion season begins at Kiger Stadium tonight.

The Falcons host five-time defending state champion Medford in a single nine-inning contest tonight beginning at 6pm.  Medford opened the season Tuesday losing to Roseburg, 6-3.

Tonight’s season opener can be heard on CBS Sports Radio The Winner, 106.5/1240, or online at www.klamathradio.com or on BasinLife.com (click on the tab for The Winner, left side of homepage).  The Falcons have another week and a half of non-league games before Area IV league play opens up the third week of June.

Klamath Falls will host the American Legion State Tournament in late July.

The Toronto Raptors now leads the NBA finals, after beating Golden State 123-109 in Oakland last night. Stephen Curry had a terrific game for Golden State, going for a career-playoff-high 47 points, eight rebounds and seven assists. But his efforts to pick up the slack weren’t enough.

Tuesday night, Mitch Haniger and Daniel Vogelbach, two much-needed offensive forces in the Mariners lineup, showed signs of emerging from recent slumps. But that still wasn’t enough to slow Seattle’s slide as the Astros rallied late for an 11-5 win at T-Mobile Park.

Vogelbach gave the Mariners a momentary 5-4 lead with a three-run, bases-loaded double off the center-field wall in the sixth. The big designated hitter got off to a scorching start this year, but had hit just .163 with one homer and two RBIs in his previous 13 games while seeing his slugging percentage plummet from .659 to .550 in a two-week span.

The Mariners tried a new starter on Tuesday with the return of Andrew Moore, but the results didn’t change.

Moore, making his first Major League appearance since 2017 when he was a touted rookie prospect with the Mariners, threw two perfect innings before the Astros zeroed in. The 25-year-old, who was reacquired two weeks ago on a waiver claim from the Giants, wound up allowing four runs on six hits over 4 2/3 innings.

Moore once pitched in a state playoff game against Klamath Union while at North Eugene High in 2012, beating the Pelicans at Steen Sports Park’s Leo Bocchi field, 2-1.

This year’s Mike Keck scholarship winners have been announced.

Henley’s Jessica Northcutt, is the female winner of the $1,000 scholarship.  She will attend Northwest Christian University in Eugene and play volleyball beginning in the fall.

Mazama’s Jake Healy, is the male winner.  Jake hopes to play football for the US Navy while attending the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland in the fall.

The Las Vegas Bowl is moving to a new, bigger stadium next year, and will feature teams from the SEC or Big Ten facing a Pac-12 school.

The game is shedding its Mountain West Conference affiliation under a six-year deal beginning in 2020.

The game will move to a post-Christmas date and be played at the $1.8 billion, 65,000-seat stadium being built just off the Las Vegas Strip for the NFL’s Raiders and UNLV football.
