Baseball’s Seattle Mariner great Edgar Martinez, who used to weigh his bats to make sure of their precision, carefully weighed his words Sunday as he accepted his induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

He also gave a quick estimate on his newest prize possession, his Hall of Fame plaque that will now hang with the rest of baseball’s greats for perpetuity.

Martinez carried more than just his new bronze plaque as he stood on stage in front of a huge throng filling the open field outside the Clark Sports Center and delivered a perfect 12-minute speech. He carried also the pride of Mariners fans who flocked across the country to celebrate with him as the 56-year-old finally ended his long journey to the Hall in his 10th and final year of eligibility.

In a season that was expected to feature more downs than ups, the Seattle Mariners anticipated that they would likely see more highs than lows from their most significant offseason acquisition.

But Yusei Kikuchi appeared to still be seeking answers in what’s been a challenging rookie season after Sunday’s 9-3 loss to the Angels, his third in five starts against the division rival this season, as the two clubs concluded their season series with L.A. taking 10 of 19.

The Mariners lost their sixth straight series and for the 15th time in their past 18 games dating back to June 27. They are 27-60 since starting a MLB-best 13-2, for a win percentage of .310 that ranks ahead of only Detroit’s .268 in that stretch.

Willamette Valley hosts Newport, Corvallis is at home against Medford, and Roseburg travels to Hillsboro as the American Legion super regionals start today.

The Klamath Falls Falcons will host the state tournament beginning Saturday at Kiger Stadium. So far, Beaverton, Dallas, and Eugene have earned spots in the tournament.  The Falcons will open against either Corvallis or Medford in the first game.

Brian Fernandez has been a member of the Portland Timbers for just two and a half months, but he has already made his mark on the Portland-Seattle rivalry in a big way.

Fernandez netted two goals in his first match against the Seattle Sounders on June 12 to hand the Portland Timbers a 2-1 road win over their rivals in the fourth round of the U.S. Open Cup.

He followed up that performance by scoring twice to lead the Timbers to a 2-1 win over the Sounders in front of 50,072 fans in an MLS regular season game at CenturyLink Field Sunday.
