The Seattle Mariners limped into the All-Star break, going 2-8 over their final 10 games of the first half. The second half isn’t off to a much better start, as Seattle was swept by the Angels with a 6-3 loss on Sunday.

Starter Yusei Kikuchi hasn’t had much success in his career against the Angels so far; he had surrendered 17 runs (16 earned) in 11 2/3 innings through his first three times facing them. Kikuchi showed some improvement in allowing three runs Sunday, but struggles with his breaking pitches saw him exit the game before recording an out in the fifth.

Seattle enjoys a day off today, and plays in Oakland tomorrow and Wednesday.

The Klamath Falls Falcons got back on the winning track yesterday afternoon at Kiger Stadium after winning one and losing three in the Eugene area over the weekend.  Klamath Falls split with Willamette Valley of Springfield Friday night, losing 4-2 in the opener but won the nightcap 4-1 behind a solid pitching performance from Scott Lewis. 

Against Eugene on Saturday, the Falcons came up short in losing 9-2 and 10-0.  Back at Kiger yesterday, the Falcons defeated Siskiyous 17-7.  It’s the last week of the regular season before the super regionals and the state tournament this week, and it’s a busy one. 

Klamath Falls hosts Lewiston Idaho tomorrow in a single game, then travels to Grants Pass Wednesday and Roseburg Thursday to wrap up Area IV play.

The Portland Timbers escaped with a point Saturday night after a physical and an emotional match that capped a grueling week.  Playing a man down for much of the second half, the Timbers managed a 2-2 draw with the Colorado Rapids at Providence Park to close what ultimately was a successful week.

After earning road wins against two of Major League Soccer’s top teams — a league victory at New York City FC, and a U.S. Open Cup win at Los Angeles FC — the Timbers returned home and salvaged a point from a match that could have quickly gone downhill.

Some off-the-court movement for the Portland Trail Blazers.

The Portland Trail Blazers have acquired the rights to forward/center Bojan Dubljevic in a sign-and-trade agreement that sends Jake Layman to Minnesota, it was announced today by president of basketball operations Neil Olshey.

As a part of the trade, Portland will receive a traded player exception. The Trail Blazers will have one year to use the traded player exception, which is created when a team’s outgoing salaries exceed the salaries they receive back in a trade.

Dubljevic (6-9, 242), 27, was selected with the 59th overall pick in the second round of the 2013 NBA Draft. The Montenegrin national has spent the last seven seasons playing for Valencia in Spain.

Oregon softball head coach Melyssa Lombardi added a big bat to the Ducks’ lineup for the next three seasons on Monday with the signing of corner infielder Mya Felder, the 2019 WAC freshman of the year.
 
Felder will join the Ducks as a sophomore this fall after putting together a tremendous freshman season at New Mexico State.
 

A Fresno, Calif., native, Felder was a three-time WAC hitter of the week and also earned NFCA national player of the week honors on May 7 after a monster week that included a 4-for-4 performance with a home run, two doubles and six RBIs in a win at CSU Bakersfield. Felder had three different games with two home runs, and she racked up 13 multi-RBI performances.
