The Willamette Valley Titans opened American Legion league play with a doubleheader sweep of the Eugene Challengers on Tuesday, winning the opener, 8-6, and the nightcap, 8-7, in eight innings.

In Medford yesterday, Medford claimed a split in the twin bill with a 12-5 victory over Dr. Stewart’s. Roseburg pounded 17 hits and edged Medford, 10-9, in the first game.

Willamette Valley leads the league with a 2-0 record.  Roseburg is 3-1, Medford 2-2, and Grants Pass 1-1 while the Klamath Falls Falcons and Eugene Challengers currently sit at 0-2.

Grants Pass visits the Falcons tonight.  Hear the games beginning at 6pm on 1240AM/106.5FM CBS Sports Radio The Winner or www.klamathradio.com.

In a season to be judged largely by the development of their younger nucleus of core players, the Mariners can’t help but be concerned by the recent struggles of Japanese left-hander Yusei Kikuchi.

The 27-year-old rookie was the Mariners’ premier free-agent addition last winter, signed as a promising piece for the rotation going forward. But Kikuchi took his fourth straight loss on Tuesday in a 9-0 setback to the Royals, allowing six runs on nine hits in five innings.

The Mariners dropped their second straight to the Royals, who clinched their first winning road series this season while improving to 25-48. Seattle falls to 31-46, including an 18-44 mark since sweeping Kansas City in a four-game set at Kauffman Stadium in mid-April.

The Portland Timbers have had a quiet few weeks. That is about to change.  The Timbers played just one game during the last two and a half weeks as Major League Soccer took a break around the international window. Portland is now preparing to play four games in the next 12 days.
