WEDNESDAY, July 24, 2019

The field is set for the Oregon AAA American Legion state tournament beginning Saturday at Kiger Stadium, and the first matchup for Klamath Falls couldn’t be more exciting.

Long-time rival Medford defeated Corvallis yesterday twice to win their three game Super Regional series, and the Mustangs will meet the Falcons in the opening round at 7pm Saturday night.

Other first round games feature Eugene against Hillsboro, Salem meets Beaverton, and Willamette Valley tangles with Dallas.  Games Saturday and Sunday will be at 10a, 1p, 4p, and 7pm.

Medford is the five-time defending state title holder.

If three teams remain after Game 13, the winner of Game 11 automatically draws the bye in Game 14

The Seattle Mariners have acknowledged that they won’t be able to win much by scoring just one to two runs per game. With a pitching staff, including Tommy Milone, that largely plays to weak contact, the Mariners’ success is predicated on power and run production.

Which is why their 7-2 loss to the  Texas Rangers on Tuesday night at T-Mobile Park is as reflective as any during their second-half swoon. Seattle has dropped 16 of its past 20 since June 27, only a half-game better than the Tigers for the worst stretch in the Majors in that time.

On the season, the Mariners fell to 1-30 in games in which they score two runs or fewer. They are 37-15 in games that they score five runs or more.

An afternoon matchup awaits at T-Mobile Park today to wrap up the series against the Rangers.

Oregon’s five returning starting offensive linemen dropped a combined 38 pounds this offseason.

Left tackle Penei Sewell, left guard Shane Lemieux, center Jake Hanson, right guard Dallas Warmack and right tackle Calvin Throckmorton have dropped 20, one, two, six, nine pounds since spring practice, respectively, according to Oregon’s updated roster on Wednesday.

Sewell, who is down to 325 pounds, cut the most of the 22 players who lost weight since spring practice and three freshmen who enrolled in the summer and dropped compared to their listed weights at recruits on National Signing Day.
