The good news for the Seattle Mariners? They didn’t get no-hit on Sunday.

The bad? They managed just a Kyle Seager solo home run off Justin Verlander in a 3-1 loss to the Astros, who swept the three-game series at Minute Maid Park in impressive fashion against a Seattle club whose step-back season has gone further in reverse since trading away three more veterans last Wednesday.

Seager had two of Seattle’s four hits in the game, with his 10th homer of the season coming on a 378-foot shot leading off the seventh that ended Verlander’s day as well as an 18-inning scoreless streak for Seattle. Seager continues his midsummer revival, as he’s hit .341 (15-for-44) with four home runs in his past 12 games to raise his average from .186 to .218 and his OPS from .592 to .698.

The Portland Timbers were moments away from securing a hard-fought draw on the road Sunday afternoon when one play in the box changed the game.

A cross bounced off Timbers center back Larrys Mabiala in stoppage time.

Mabiala’s arm was outstretched on the play, but it was not immediately clear from replays whether the ball had hit off Mabiala’s chest or arm. Referee Chris Penso awarded Minnesota United (11-7-5, 38 points) a game-deciding penalty kick after determining through a video review that the ball had hit Mabiala’s arm. Penalty kicks are only supposed to be awarded through video review when a clear and obvious error has occurred on the field.

Sunday’s game was Portland’s first of two matches against Minnesota at Allianz Field this week and first of five games in 15 days to open the month of August. The Timbers will turn around and play Minnesota in the semifinals of the 2019 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Wednesday.

The Oregon Ducks football team summer camp went into Autzen Stadium and under the lights Sunday night, midway through the third practice of preseason camp.

It felt like a grand stage, with freshly laid, vibrant new turf covering the field, and the team answered with an entertaining, intense performance.

The energetic practice capped the first three-day session of preseason camp. The challenge for the Ducks will be to sustain their energy through an off day, and through the dog days of August that are to come.

This wasn’t officially a scrimmage, but it had all the feel of one. Pads were popping, big plays were made, players were barking back and forth and the energy was crackling.
